SPOTSWOOD, NJ - Gyms and fitness centers remain closed, but residents can get fit with live Zumba classes offered three times a week courtesy of Spotswood resident and certified Zumba instructor Tracy Salvesen. Salvesen recently held an outdoor Zumba class in Helmetta's Maple Street Pavilion that was a huge hit.

Salvesen's live classes are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. She also holds a Friday Zumba Gold class at 11:30 a.m. Participants can access the live classes via Zoom. One to two pound weights or 16 ounce water bottles are needed for the Friday workouts.

To access the weekly Zumba classes, participants need a Zoom account. A Zoom account is free to set up and use. Once the account is set up, participants log on at the scheduled time to participate in Salvesen's Zumba class using the following ID's:
