About Me

Hi! Licensed to teach Zumba® Fitness Classes since March 2012, I am very excited to share my love of Zumba® with others as this is a great choice to actually have FUN in your physical fitness goals! Why not pick something you enjoy and want to keep doing instead of "forcing yourself" to workout?


And did you know that 

dance and play is energy in motion which:

1) Distracts you from the stressful responsibilities of your life.

2) Gives you the opportunity to tap into the potential within you!

3) It's a motivating and enjoyable way to bring a healthy balance to life spiritually, mentally, emotionally, AND physically!  


In my classes, all are welcome regardless of background and fitness levels. 

Often those who are new to Zumba® think they can't do it! Many people feel they cannot dance, or they are intimidated by what they see in Zumba® classes, so it is my intention to share my love of this party-style fitness exercise with others in an environment where people can feel "safe" to be themselves, can feel good about themselves in their bodies just as they are now, and also provide a cardio workout in a fun way in which the Zumba® Fitness brand is known internationally for providing: 

Exercise in disguise! 
Join the party-like environment and ENJOY your workout!

If you're a seasoned Zumba® Fitness enthusiast, you'll get an amazing workout as well!

Since I am also certified through *AFAA (the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America for group fitness), I provide safety tips that can be used in group exercise classes of all kinds. It's a great way to know you're own body's limits while still having the cardio workout you desire, burning calories and fat, not muscle. I assist you to build your muscle during the class without the injury. 

You will feel stronger, have more energy, and actually feel happier by bringing this style of cardio fitness into your workout routine because Zumba® Fitness is so uplifting and has such a positive impact that lasts. It's a great way to bring a healthy balance to life spiritually, mentally, emotionally, AND physically! Balance of these four parts of ourselves is the key to a happy and healthy life!

 

In fact I found Zumba® at my nearby gym in 2011 as a result of looking for an aerobic class activity that was fun and not a chore; I wanted something that would bring me joy in my life and I would look forward to doing on a regular basis, also supporting the current activities I enjoy, such as slalom water skiing. I was thrilled to find such a wonderful way to exercise! Little did I know that my love of Zumba® would take me on a path to start teaching Zumba® Fitness or any type of group fitness. At the very least I hope to inspire you to have FUN while moving your body! 

 

Let your spirit soar! Set your inner child free! Dance like no one is watching (I most certainly do!) and get a great workout! Hey, what happens in  Zumba® Fitness, stays in  Zumba® Fitness! ;o)  When you feel better, you feel better about yourself. When you feel better about yourself, life gets much better all around!
