It’s great fun and keeps you fit!  I’ve been going to Stu’s Zumba Gold classes for 5 years and recently started his Pilates class.  His Zumba is fantastic fun, very loud and you dance to great music – so enjoyable.  I also find his Pilates classes very beneficial & am feeling stronger, more flexible & fitter as time goes on.  Stu’s a very ‘fun’ person, you have a great laugh, I really enjoy & look forward to his classes.


Have just returned to stus zumba Gold following the lock down and a spell in hospital. Didn’t think I’d make it back but I’m so glad I have. Lovely people, Stu is so funny and we all have a great time.

Stu’s Zumba classes are a blast! Great music, great exercise, and a great laugh too. They always seem to finish too soon!


Zumba gold is fantastic with Stuart – I have been doing it for a few years (probably ever since Stuart started) and all I can say it makes you feel so good, energised, and is super fun, you come out of it always with a smile – and my friends all say the same – and I think the whole class probably feels the same.

So if you are in any doubt give it a go and I am sure you will love like I do.

I joined Stu’s zumba in February, although had done it before last year! And zumba toning in March, I absolutely love it and look forward to the classes every week! I have arthritis and these classes have helped me no end, my fitness levels are improving, I feel good, Stu is lovely, funny and entertaining all at the same time! The class atmosphere is amazing and lots of fun! MUCH LOVE, SHARON X


A friend nagged me to join a class -I am not a good joiner in and prefer exercise on my own – but Stu class is not any class. From my fist session I was completely hooked – Starting the day with a smile and a laugh and a not too demanding work out all with music that lifts the spirits – absolutely nothing could be better! Still not up for other classes but if Stu is my instructor -I will be there ! Thank you Stu

Stu makes exercise fun. I always look forward to my weekly Zumba sessions.  Love the music and routines. Great for both physical and mental health.

Stuart has motivated me to get moving in Zumba Gold Chalgrove since 2016. Always good fun and lifts my mood, even though my joints sometimes complain! Stuart happy to share the class online when I can’t get there. His suggested adaptions to the routine kept me moving when I had medical treatment on my knees. I hope he keeps on going and wish him all the best.

Zumba Gold – Don’t go to a boring gym! This class has it all – great music, exercise, dance, and laughs courtesy of the effervescent Stu!

Pilates – great workout on every level. Stu’s well-designed classes are really effective at finding those muscles you think you’ve mislaid. Highly recommended!

I’m a relative newby to the classes but was immediately impressed with the friendly atmosphere and quality teaching. I would encourage anyone to come along and give it a go.

Love the class, just started at Crowmarsh Village Hall and the enthusiasm, music and energy is fantastic! I only hope my creaky knees hold out and I can continue! I know some members have been coming for some time and they are all so keen, I can see now why!
Keep up the brilliant work Stu.

Zumba Gold with Stu is such fun I always come home feeling rejuvenated! Great music, great teacher He has a fun,  lively and energetic approach to the class that cannot help but enthuse all of us. He got the measure quickly of our capabilities and runs the class accordingly. We have a good laugh and a bit of exercise thrown in!  Can’t beat it…great music, great leader and great fun.

Have been doing Stu’s Zumba for over 5 years ….what a way to have fun and at the same time getting fit,  listening to great music and having a laugh – all  in a relaxing friendly environment.  Don’t miss out, come and join us!!!


Lovely vibrant ,energetic class …have been attending 6 months.


I Joined Stuart Zumba a couple of years now, he’s such a fun loving guy plus we also have great exercise as well, keep going Stu wouldn’t do Zumba with anyone else. 


I have been going to Stuart’s Zumba gold class since it started in Chalgrove several years ago. The class is fun and everyone is very friendly. I can’t say that I am any fitter but I enjoy going to the class every Friday. I was most surprised one day last year when Stuart commented that he liked my new hairstyle. Unusual for a man to notice!!

I’ve been attending Stuart’s “Zumba Gold ” classes in Marcham for nearly a year now and I have to say that they are the most enjoyable, invigorating fun class that anyone could attend.
Stuart makes everyone welcome no matter what age or ability you are. Keep up the good work Stuart


Really look forward to Stu’s Zumba classes . Stu has incredible energy , is great fun & even if I arrive weary by the end I leave with new vigour!  It has been brilliant for my overall health too .

I have been attending Stu’s Zumba Gold class for approximately 6 years, starting when I was 73 years of age !!

I have always enjoyed the sessions a great deal, and certainly I feel good mentally and physically after a class. The choreography is excellent as is the chosen music.
Stu’ is a superb ‘keep fit’ instructor by encouraging members to work at their own pace, always executed with a good sense of humour too.
Renee Steventon

Zumba Gold with Stu is such a blast ,loads of fun, very energetic and a great crowd,what more could you want .
Best Zumba instructor ever, makes us all laugh .

I’m new to Zumba Gold and despite wanting to try it for ages I always found a reason excuse not too! With two dodgy hips and two left feet I wasn’t sure if I’d survive the first week but five sessions later I’m still going!  Stu’s class is welcoming, lively and totally non-judgmental.  I can’t remember the routines but my view is, just keep moving to the music and have fun!
