When Vinnie Pham became a member at Central YMCA over ten years ago, he fell in love with so many activities, that he convinced his mother Kim Tran to join soon after. Vinnie has captivated the staff in the aquatics department with his enthusiasm for swimming and most recently, he has fallen in love with ZUMBA®. Vinnie’s mother laughs, “He will wake me up at the crack of dawn with his ZUMBA® shirt on and say, ‘Don’t forget we have Zumba class today with Kelly.’”
Central YMCAs ZUMBA® instructor, Kelly Spivey, has watched Vinnie and Kim’s attendance increase over time. “They attend Zumba three to four times a week and they do NOT miss,” Spivey recalls.
“They dance side by side in the middle of the FRONT row—always.”
Vinnie has always been a regular member of Central YMCA, but when he took his first ZUMBA® class with instructor Kelly, he was hooked. He loves moving to the music and is often called the party starter in class, getting the participants clapping and moving along with him.
Kim has also gained recognition among her friends and family for her weight loss, and with the biggest smile on her face, she says “It’s all ZUMBA! It works!”
Congratulations to Vinnie and Kim, Central YMCA's June Members of the Month!
