A Word With: Rita Cohen

Rita Cohen

Meet my friend Rita! One of the nicest, and most positive people to be around. I’m very picky about my fitness instructors, especially Zumba® Fitness Instructors, and Rita happens to be the cream of the crop. Her positive and fabulous energy is contagious!

Occupation
Mom; Zumba® Fitness instructor; Interpreter/Translator.

Hobbies
Veggie Gardening.

Are YOU a VB “local”?
I’ve been living here with my husband and our (now) 2 kids for the past 14 years; and came to the area from Ghana when I was almost 9, so I guess you can say I’m a local.

Favorite family activity to do in Virginia Beach
Biking.

Top 5 “must have” items for going to the beach
Nothing, really, since we are lucky to live literally on the beach.

A perfect date with your significant other
Dinner and dancing.

Favorite restaurant
Burton’s Grill. They have a wonderful gluten-free selection.

Go-to drink{s} at the moment
Green tea or coconut water.

Something you CAN’T live without
Ear plugs (I’m such a light sleeper, that I can’t sleep without them).

What’s on your bucket list?
Travel to every country whose language I speak.

Local tip
If you have a young family, avoid the Oceanfront and go to the Bay beach instead. The waves are much gentler, and parking is not such a hassle.

Any events in Hampton Roads that you’re looking forward to?
India Fest at the Virginia Beach Convention Center on Nov. 8!

What is your motto?
Inhale the negative, exhale the positive.
