As we enter into a new year at City Gym and begin to see increased traffic, we like to provide a few reminders and tips to ensure that each CGKC member continues to have a pleasant workout each time they walk through our doors. We all know the gym can be chaotic after the new year, but give it time -- it will slow down. Thank you for your patience, and most importantly your continued membership!

That “old guy” is Chet Mayekawa and he has just completed his first year as a regular instructor at City Gym.

Song selection is extremely important to Chet. “Just because a song is Latin-based, it doesn’t mean it’s the right song for Zumba.
