The modalities denominated fitness have been increasing significantly since the decade of 70. This process accompanies the search for a healthy and/or aesthetically shaped body. These factors present a challenge for professionals in the area of dance and gymnastics, since these are the methodological framework for these practices. This context, in which Zumba Program instructors are inserted. In this subject, little research is produced, so this study aims to identify and analyze the quality of life and working conditions of Zumba Program instructors who work in gymnasiums in cities in the state of Goiás. For this, two questionnaires were applied. With the purpose of analyzing the sociodemographic, economic and professional characteristics related to the living and working conditions of these professionals. Twenty-one instructors from seven cities in the state of Goiás participated in the study. The results demonstrate contradictions in the perception of quality of life and in the general working conditions of the professionals, especially when comparing the results of the two questionnaires. They present indices of significant mental illness, low remuneration and little time of rest and leisure. There is a devaluation of the professional by their employers. These complex issues deserve a judicious look from the academic community of Physical Education, including because most Zumba professionals work in these spaces.
