The Gym Lakewood cancelled its popular Zumba class for women effective this past Friday, TLS has learned. The Latin music and dance work-out class became very popular recently, but when the atmosphere at the classes deteriorated to a less than desirable situation for a Bas Yisroel, the Gym and Rabbonim began getting complaints, sources say.
Following the numerous complaints, the management consulted with Da’as Torah, and decided to cancel the class, The Gym confirmed.
“After careful consideration, and consulting with Da’as Torah, we decided to replace Zumba”, The Gym Lakewood tells TLS.
The Gym added, “We are confident that we will have new programs which offer an opportunity for women get the same benefits as they got from Zumba”.
The Gym says they hope to replace the Zumba class as early as next week.
“We have some new instructors from top gyms in the area who are joining our staff, and who are bringing the newest offerings in the industry to The Gym.”
They also said they hope other Gyms do the same thing in regards to the Zumba class.
“We hope other gyms that cater to the Yeshiva community follow our lead.” TLS.
