In my teens I was overweight, and in my 20′s I topped the scale at 206 lbs. When I discovered that I was borderline diabetic, I devoted an entire year to exercise and eating better and was rewarded by shedding off 84 lbs. I have been in “fat remission” for over 10 years and I attribute maintaining my healthy weight to a lifestyle that involves cardio work, weight training, and dance. Join my Zumba party every Saturday morning and let me help you achieve your own health goals.
Frankie has been formally dancing since the young age of five. In his teen and early adult years, he got into the breakdancing craze and at the same time was lucky to be exposed to many different forms of dance such as Jazz, Salsa, Merengue and Argentine Tango. To this day, you can be sure that if there is a beat in the air Frankie is dancing to it.
While on a treadmill at a local gym, Frankie glanced into the group exercise room and saw what looked like to Salsa dance. That’s how he found Zumba and from that moment he was hooked! He promptly took the next step to become certified and began teaching Zumba. It has been the most rewarding time in his life as he is able to share his passion for music and dance with his students.
Through Zumba you can make new friends, relieve stress from a hard day’s work and meet your fitness goals. Whatever your reason for taking a Zumba class, you will find it is more than just music and dance- it is therapy for the mind, body and soul! See you in class!
Kisha is a Chicago girl who has lived in the Phoenix area since 1997. She has always loved music and dancing and considers both a way to relax, have fun, and relieve stress. Then she discovered Zumba. Ditching the workout and joining the party quickly replaced boring workouts on the treadmill and elliptical and incorporated all the things she likes about aerobics and kick-boxing!
Once she realized Zumba was an addiction, she got licensed to teach so she could help throw the party – it’s the perfect outlet for her excess energy.
Because she was in the military, she likes to incorporate a lot of fitness moves in her choreography, so don’t be surprised if you start to feel like you have abs or buns of steel.
It doesn’t matter if you “can’t dance”; it’s just about moving and enjoying the music. Zumba really is exercise in disguise.
Hope to see you in class!
