Eleanor Sproule. Winnipeg, Canada. "Thank you Suelang for sharing your passion for Zumba. You make our Zumba experience exciting and enjoyable and encourage us to have fun no matter what our fitness level and experience. Your playlists are great and I appreciate the time you take to ensure we all learn the steps and don't get left behind. I look around the class and see people of all ages enjoying your infectious, kind and invigorating workouts! Your community spirt is evident - from leading the opening warm up at CIBC's Run For the Cure to holding fundraisers for the Cat Shelter and numerous other school events throughout the year. I'll miss you Suelang.... aloha!"
Donnah Presingular Burgoyne. Winnipeg, Canada. "There's so much to say about Zumba with Suelang I don't know if I'll have enough room on here...:-) I have never been able to stick with a class throughout a session, let alone sticking with one for almost 2 years. I loved Suelang's classes so much that I shared the experience with almost everyone I know - sisters, cousins, friends, coworkers...even had my mom and mother-in-law attend her classes!! Tomorrow will be my very last class with Suelang and will be a very bitter sweet one. :-( Suelang, thank you so much for reminding me of how much I love to dance. Your classes brought me back to when my sister and I used to dance in the basement as kids. You have a unique and contagious energy and will be a GREAT loss to the Zumba community of Winnipeg. Lots of luck and will for sure look you up when we come visit Hawaii! I'll keep you posted on the baby too! :-) "
Jackie Goundry. Winnipeg, Manitoba. "I was only fortunate enough to be in 2x 8 week Zumba sessions with Suelang. But I can say I'm soooo glad I did. Her up tempo routines and music and constant encouragement made it easy for me to for the 1st time in years enjoy working out. So far I have lost 25 lbs. doing her classes, and would highly recommend anyone to go and try them. Thanks Suelang for motivating me and showing me that taking care of my health is fun. Enjoy Hawaii my dear I'm gonna miss ya. Jackie G."
Melony Biedler. Winnipeg, Canada: "I joined Zumba classes January 10th, 2012. I was referred by my girlfriend Joanne. My first experience was with mixed feelings. I could not get my hips and feet to move with the rhythm of the music. After half an hour, I was sweating up a storm following all of the dance moves and feeling really confident. Suelang, was a huge part of making me feel welcome and energized. She is a very special person inside and out. She is a gifted dancer with a beautiful warm smile. During our class, she would always encourage all of us we can do it. Zumba is life changing. I feel toned and sleep like a baby. Zumba exercise is a great way to beat stress. I feel more relaxed and calm. The price is also very affordable. Zumba music is fantastic. I bought 3 Zumba music CDs from Suelang which I play all of the time. Zumba is now a part of my life and I don’t know what I would do without it! Suelang gives all of herself to each class with excitement and upbeat energy. She leaves Canada to teach Zumba in Hawaii…do you have room for me in your suitcase ? ! Suelang, I would like to thank you for everything and wish you all the best in the world ! Take care and keep in touch. Love Melony."
Lucianne Anthony. Winnipeg, Canada. " When I discovered your class in my local dance studio just a few short years ago, I was so happy to have found an outlet for my Latin Dance craving. Dancing is my favourite way to exercise and the fitness moves were built in with your wonderful choreography. I was hooked after the first class ! You took the time to make everyone feel welcome. You provided a challenging workout with an intro to new moves. This along with your big and generous smile assured us of leaving class happy and looking forward to our next Zumba "party" fix. Thank you for giving us the real spirit of Zumba . Winnipeg's loss is Hawaii’s gain. We miss you!"
Carrie Sarna. Winnipeg, Canada. "I started doing Zumba with Suelang last summer. She made the class so fun, and so addicting. I started out once a week & then the following session bumped it up to 2 times a week. She makes us laugh constantly with that contagious smile & laugh of hers. She gets you moving in a way you never knew your body could move. The music is fantastic and all the moves are broken down to make it easy to follow. I haven't been able to attend for a while now & miss it so much, but not just Zumba, I miss Suelang's Zumba. If you have a chance to attend her class, do it because I know I'll be making my way to Hawaii at some point to visit & of course attend a Zumba class :) Good luck Suelang, you will be greatly missed by all of us."
Vicky Smith. Winnipeg, Canada. " I am very happy to have been part of Suelang's Zumba Classes. I am 59 years old and recently retired from a stressful job. My neighour convinced me Zumba was what I needed to kick off my new found freedom and get some exercise to get my energy back. I have to admit I thought it was more suited to someone younger than myself, I was thinking more yoga. After our first winter of 2 classes a week with a variety of instructors we were frustated to say the least . We kept hearing from others that we should take a class with Suelang to really enjoy the Zumba experience... Suelang your classes are so inclusive to anyone that loves to dance. Your fun loving smile is inspiring to your students and your energy level is amazing .You are such a motivater and always encouraging to everyone. It shows that you really enjoy what you are doing and care about your students not just as a group but as induviduals at different levels. Your proffesionalism has earned you reputation in the community for Zumba in this city ,congratulations. Thank you for making me feel younger, stronger and full of energy again with a smile on my face ! You're never to old to Zumba! Hope your new students love you as much as we do. Wishing you happiness and sucess".
Susan Lillie. Winnipeg, Canada. "Zumba with Suelang is awesome ........ she is so full of energy that you can't help but get pumped in her class!! Even on days when I was tired and not too full of energy, just going to her class gave me the lift I needed!!! Good luck in Hawaii Suelang!!"
Barb Kolomis. Winnipeg, Canada. "Suelang's passion for Zumba is clear-and that passion has rubbed off on me! Exercise can be a chore at times, but not once I discovered Suelang's Zumba classes. I love to watch Suelang at her Zumba dance craft and the passion that radiates from her is infectious. It makes every minute of her class fun and so enjoyable - it's so not like exercise...I love it! And though I will truly miss Suelang, I am thankful for meeting and experiencing Zumba through her!! Take care Suelang, I'll miss you! Barb :)"
Judy Wall. Winnipeg, Canada. "I started Zumba about 3 years ago. I have followed Suelang wherever she was teaching. She is great instructor with a heart of gold. When I took the first class, I thought I would never be able to do this stuff, but I was hooked. Suelang has so much energy and enthusiasm; it does not feel at all like you are exercising while you are at her class. I am not the most coordinated person, but I love Zumba and it does not matter if you are not doing the exact moves. We will really miss her in Winnipeg, but we wish you all the best in your new adventure in Hawaii and trust me if it wasn't that far away I would follow her there to take her classes. All the best Judy Wall."
Megan Leskiw. Winnipeg, Canada. "The class itself is absolutely wonderful! I'm not one for heading to the gym and going nowhere on a treadmill. Zumba really is for EVERYONE, whether you are the most fit person out there or you don't know biceps from your triceps you can do this! Zumba gets me moving and working, without even noticing! It's just a fun class, where you get to know great people and have a good time. As for Suelang...AMAZING! She has so much energy that you can't help but feed off it and give it your all in class. Suelang is hilarious and such a sweet person that coming to class was something to look forward to every week. Hawaii you are lucky, we want our Suelang back!! :)"
Louise Patenaude. Winnipeg, Canada. "Zumba with Suelang is an awesome experience. I enjoy her class and can't wait for the next one. I find myself practicing during the week and thinking of all the moves Suelang does. My goal at the beginning was to get fit. Suelang has helped me achieve this and stay motivated. She has a very bubbly personality and a contagious smile and is just a lovely person. Take her class. I guarantee you will enjoy it."
Karen Godfrey. Winnipeg, Canada. "I can't stress how much I have enjoyed classes with Suelang. I have stuck with them for over a year now and sometimes go 3 times a week - always 2 for sure. She keeps me motivated and her songs are always stuck in my head!! "
Donna McDonald. Winnipeg, Canada. "Suelang is the best - no question! Go to one of her classes and you'll never look back. I am so sorry to be losing her - this is definitely Hawaii's gain! I've never enjoyed working out in any way, but this was just plain fun! She's sweet, and enthusiastic, and just a ton of fun to be around. She could charge double, and it would still be the best deal in town! Suelang, you will be missed - you deserve nothing but happiness!"
Tanis & Taylor Forsythe. Winnipeg, Canada. " We first started off Zumba when Suelang taught classes at my mom's work. Instantly, we loved it. Suelang has such an amazing energy to match her great personality, you can't help but feel inspired. You can tell that she really loves what she does, which is not something you find often in a fitness instructor. She is always very encouraging, and is always, ALWAYS, smiling, which makes you feel empowered while you're moving. Even if you feel like you aren't a great dancer, or you feel like you would look silly while doing the moves and dripping sweat, you can just look up and see her big smile, and you realize that it doesn't matter what you look like, you are having FUN (all while getting active - who knew that was even possible!). Zumba has been an amazing experience for the both of us, it brought us closer together as a mother-daughter team, getting us to do something together that we both loved.
Suelang is the BEST at what she does, she will truly be missed! I HIGHLY recommend Zumba Fitness with Suelang to everyone, every age, every body type, EVERYONE! Seriously, ditch the workout and join the party, you will NOT regret it!! All the best, Taylor & Tanis Forsythe xx"
Patricia Kominowski. Winnipeg, Canada. "Taking Zumba classes with Suelang is an AWESOME experience. She is the BEST instructor I have had in any fitness class that I have taken. She is so energetic, motivating and so much fun. It is a class for everyone and everyone will get a great workout without realizing they are working out as it is so much fun. Suelang has a tremendous passion for Zumba and her smile is infectious. She cares about her students. Don't see that everyday. I highly recommend taking her class... You will NOT be sorry. I will miss Suelang... Thank you Suelang xxxxx"
Alisia Roos. Winnipeg, Canada. "Suelang - I can never thank you enough or let you know how much I truly have appreciated your enthusiasm and encouragement over the past year and a half... I've always felt very self-conscious doing any form of group exercise, and was very nervous the first time I headed to Ted Motyka for Zumba in Jan 2011. Your kind and inviting nature immediately made me comfortable and has allowed me to enjoy not only group, but become more confident in myself and my body image. I love nothing more than hearing "shake it Alisia!" in the middle of class! Your efforts at getting to know each of your students has not gone unnoticed and really makes class more personal and fun! Good luck in Hawaii - you will be missed!"
Lisa Bisesi. Winnipeg, Canada. "Suelang is an amazing Zumba Instructor. She is upbeat and approachable. Suelang encourages everyone in her class to keep moving and do what is comfortable for them. I love that Suelang will show low impact and high impact versions of the moves she does, this compliments everyone in her class. Suelang has worked very hard to make her classes professional and ensure they follow the Zumba format. Suelang’s classes have changed my life! She is very inspiring! We will miss you when you go!! Hawaii is very lucky to have you. You will do amazing work out there – Good luck and stay in touch!!"
Karmen Patricia Kwiecien. Winnipeg, Canada. "Suelang Watson's Zumba classes are the BOMB! She makes every person in her class feel like they’re doing all the right moves, when it couldn't be farther than the truth. I have enjoyed many of her classes and because of the kind of instructor she is, have always giving it my all. The only thing that precedes her gift as a great instructor is her Beautiful Heart."
