Instructor Cory Scholefield first began teaching fitness in the 1980’s - the age of high impact aerobics, headbands, leotards, tights, and leg warmers. This is where she first learned how to “build” a fitness class and choreograph routines to music. Over the years, she was involved in fitness, as either an instructor or a participant and group classes were always her first choice. In 2009 Cory discovered Zumba Fitness and decided to become an instructor and began teaching classes on a regular basis. In 2012 Cory met her husband Jim in one of her Zumba classes. He soon became an instructor and they began teaching classes as a team.
After students in their classes repeatedly asked for routines to songs they heard on the radio, Cory and Jim decided to create a class independent of Zumba® Fitness. They choreographed routines to popular Pop and Hip Hop music, combining Hip Hop dance moves with fitness and called it Hip Hop Cardio. The class was a great workout for all fitness levels and an instant hit. It has remained a favorite of students wherever the class is taught.
