I have been committed to a healthy, fit lifestyle from the time that I was a teenager. I began teaching group fitness classes to keep myself in shape and fell in love with the mission of helping others with their fitness needs. I am one of those that believe you cannot be completely happy or healthy, including spiritually, unless you take the time to exercise and take care of your body.
For years I trained, most often obsessively, with weight training and running. I threw in a few triathlons and marathons to make it interesting and finally committed to competitive bodybuilding. It is a true discipline and having committed to that regimen, I became disciplined in every aspect of my life. ZUMBA Fitness tops all of that – hands down!! It’s healthy, it’s Happy, and its’ FUN! It’s the most perfect fit for me with my Ballroom and Latin Dance training and my experience instructing group fitness classes and personal training.
This is a Latin Dance inspired class that could not be more FUN! We do it ‘Miami Style’ and add the international and pop dance moves to make it interesting as is the module for Zumba Fitness.
As a participant in ZUMBA® Dance Fitness you will learn and remember easy-to-follow dance rhythms that you will find yourself doing even around the house! The benefits of ZUMBA®Dance Fitness just go on…and on…and on!
I have never had so much FUN exercising and now you can too! Come have a BLAST!
My ZUMBA® Fitness training includes trainings with both Beto Perez, creator of ZUMBA® Fitness, Tanya Beardsley and Gina Grant, both top ZUMBA® Fitness education specialists and stars of the ZUMBA® Fitness DVD collection.
