    I came to zumba with my daughter haley last night and felt like a fish out of water….not sure that is my thing. BUT…i would like to talk to you about group fit and maybe personal training. I will be 50 in twenty months and i have made a goal to run my first 5K. Can you help me get ready for that???

      Sounds like we have something in common. I also tried Zumba and not sure if it is my lack of coordination or the fast pace, but not necessarily my preferred exercise.
      I too, will be 50 shortly, (Aug) and I would like to run or at least speed walk in a 5k.
      My enthusiasm goes out to you and I hope you reach your goals!

      • Where to Start says:

        If you live in near the Stayton area, Annette, you should join our upcoming 5K on April 1st. Register by March 16th for a commemorative tech shirt included with registration.

    What times do you teach your classes?

  3. Julie N says:

    Some friends and I are looking at the Groupon for your classes. It says you offer daytime classes – what are the times? We are interested in coming when our kids are in school.

    Thank you.

    • Where to Start says:

      Monday, Wednesday and Fridays at 10:30am.

      • Julie N says:

        Thanks so much. When I first clicked the link to your website, there were no tabs full of information. I now see that the schedule is there…just had to be patient :)

  4. Gina says:

    Can you tell me the days/times that Zumba is offered?
    Thank you.

  5. Thanks for a marvelous posting! I seriously enjoyed reading it, you’re a great author. I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and may come back very soon. I want to encourage continue your great posts, have a nice morning!

  6. Hi Tirzah, wondered if you would be able to lead a Zumba class at A Gift of Time. We will do a better job of publicizing the time you will be there. Things got a tad wonky in the afternoon last year.
    We could have people ready at 3:30 on the 7th of September.
    I look forward to hearing from you. Janice Wolcott Event Coordinator

    My name is Mrs. Cynthia Rives. I am the teacher and owner of Stayton Montessori. My school is on Ida Street on the same corner as Where to Start. I am more than happy to offer childcare so that more people can come to classes. My school is small though and spaces would be limited. I am open year round though and am flexible as for times and days. 503-991-9410
    Nicole Miller with Word’s Out PR let me know you might be looking for some child care.
