Zumba Basic. Tony has always had a love of dancing and staying fit . He actually has entered a few Salsa competitions with his sister placing in the top three . Tony was first introduced to Zumba in 2003 when his sister became the first in his family to become licensed. His older brother Yani is also an instructor. Always being encouraged to take the next step, he waited until he felt the time was right. It was May 6, 2015 when he stepped out of his comfort zone and became a licensed instructor for Zumba.
His greatest joy is helping people, it's what he does daily in his job. Zumba is an extension of that, helping others feel good about getting fit and feeling joy as they do so. Dancing is part of who he is and if he could share some of that with his class then he's happy.

Yani (Boogieman) Letona (Zumba) -
6 years ago I was trying to help my wife get back into shapeI had been out out of shape for 15 years after a total hip replacement that forced me out of the military (USN/USMC) and so one day in 2011, we stumbled into a Zumba class. 2 years later, my wife and two of my mentors had signed me up to get certified. Zumba has changed my life, even after undergoing 3 rotator cuff tear surgeries that
kept me from teaching for 6 months at the time, after every surgery. I met Vicki Frye doing the time I had just lost both my parents (both within 6 months). She referred me to her former gym, and that came at a crucial time in my life. I met a wonderful group of ladies that were there 3 times a week to Zumba with me, that really turned my sadness around and gave me another purpose to go on thru life. I love teaching and inspiring people in their quest for fitness, Zumba keeps my blood pressure, my sugar, and my weight down. My style is more of a latin dance oriented, fun, and easy to follow work out, that makes one hour go by fast while having fun. I am also thrill to teach side by side with my brother Tony (T-bone). Sometimes you will see my wife by my side, she helps put my
routines together and helps me with the ladies that need a little help. So come give it a try even if you think you have two left feet, or that you have no rhythm, I will show you how, come be part of our Zumba family and my Zumba ladies. Also check out my Zumba website: Yletona.zumba.com… When I am not teaching Zumba, I’m putting people back together as an Orthopedic Technologist, I enjoy classic rock, music, soccer, football, and dating my girl of 30+ years...
