Karen Argrett-Richardson

Licensed Zumba Instructor

Since Sep 2013


Love,Love, Love this class! Karen is a great teacher and I look forward to her classes. It's a great workout and I actually fun doing it. Everyone comes as they are and there is a feeling of  comraderie and non-competitiveness. Whatever level you are at or what shape you are in, Karen can make you feel comfortable. I brought a couple of friends my age (mid-50's), who tried Zumba for the first time and both are now regulars. Karen makes everyone feel welcome and after a few weeks, you can see and feel results. Thank you Karen!!!

Zumba never seems like exercise, yet my cardio is engaged and I am sweating. Kudos to Karen-

the best instructor!

"As a visitor to Atlanta, I feel lucky to have found Karen's Zumba Gold class. Karen is a welcoming, enthusiastic teacher and a terrific dancer. She choreographs stimulating dance routines that are fun to do, engaging our minds and muscles with movement that is challenging without being overwhelming. The dance space is in a quiet, lovely historic church with easy parking. Plus, the class members are kind and supportive of each others efforts. I'm looking forward to going back as often as I can."

" I have to admit...I am not always good about continuing healthy habits, like exercise class. But thanks to Karen I look forward to Zumba every week and absolutely hate when I have to miss it! Karen is a motivating and supportive instructor, helping each of us master Zumba moves in an encouraging and "judgment-free" zone. Most importantly, she constantly reminds us that we are there to have fun - and we do!

Karen's energy and enthusiasm have created a very positive environment and I feel like I've made a roomful of friends every Saturday! Thanks to her great instruction and terrific music,the hour flies by! I have nothing but praise for Karen and I encourage everyone to take her class. You won't want to miss a single one - I promise you! Thank you Karen and thank you Zumba!"

I have been attending Zumba with the fabulous Karen Argrett-Richardson for more than six months. Her classes are high energy and tough but we barely notice because it is so enjoyable for the participants! Karen is very patient with new members and makes everyone feel welcome during the sessions. The music is energizing and we learn routines to the beat of Salsa, Bollywood, African rhythms and Calypso music. One hour goes by very quickly! Karen is a high energy professional who motivates her students to do their very best during our Zumba classes.
My legs are stronger, my arms are sculpted and Zumba helped to make my running routine a breeze. Zumba  with Karen Argrett- Richardson is number one for me!

Karen is a great teacher! She encourages and motivates you to Zumba at your own pace while still getting in a great workout. Fun music, fun moves! Highly recommend this class.

I can not recommend more highly Zumba with Karen. She knows her stuff, is attentive to our skills and needs, and is an outstanding lady!!

I like Karen's Zumba class...

she treats each participant as a friend

she knows all our names! (this is unusual for fitness classes, for me)

she's enthusiastic, warm and welcoming

she stresses going at your own pace to make the most progress

her concern with our well being isn't limited to the class- she stays in contact lightly throughout the week by sharing motivational media post and sharing new fitness ideas she's found

she is inspiring in that she is fit herself and obviously enjoys dancing

she is responsible, communicating schedules ahead of time and arranging a substitute for the few times she is absent

so that...

we feel comfortable in the class, no matter what our size, shape or skill level is we can reliably look forward to a cheerful, dynamic, engaging time
