Zumba & a Pint Wednesdays are sooo much fun!

People are talking about how much fun they are having each week at High Park Brewery!  The time flies, the ladies are all awesome & the beer is delicious!

I have always wanted to run a community class in our neighborhood. In fact, I actually have been running community classes in our neighborhood for 8 years!! The issue had always been location….NOW that problem is solved! 🙂

High Park Brewery is a great spot with tons of space & the atmosphere is super friendly!

Come try it out on your own or bring friends, co-workers, spouses, whoever you think might enjoy!  You can also make Wednesday night a fun night to bring a group that you belong to!  The more the merrier!

I keep the moves easy to follow. The point is to have tons of fun, laugh lots, sweat lots & shake away your stresses!  Hope you can come out soon!

Self-care Comes FIRST

Seriously, this gets missed A LOT by MANY people!

Speaking from my own experience, I have a tendency to put everyone in my life’s needs before my own & by the end of the day, I am spent with no energy to give back to myself.

Recently, I have been switching it up.

Checking in with myself each MORNING & ensuring what I need from myself for the day, I get.

What this has shown me is that I am still able to be there & support others like I always did (if not even better now) & all my own personal needs are taken care of & I do not waiver from ensuring they are in a timely manner everyday!

So do what you need to do to take care of yourself FIRST & then watch how much easier it is to be there for others!

I Am Under Construction…It Is A GREAT Thing!

I have discovered that everything in life, jobs, relationships, being alive, is always evolving and if I stay “static” or not moving in one area then everything eventually seems like it gets “stuck”. It becomes a force that is very hard to move forward.

The beginning of 2018 brought upon many incidents/accidents that have had me begin to re-evaluate much of what I have been working on.  Not like a problem, only that knowing when many challenges show up, sometimes it is like the universe’s way of saying “HELLO TAMMY!! Are you listening?”

The most prominent that started my year were 2 car accidents less than 2 month’s apart. Both times I was rear-ended and ended up with whiplash and concussions. The second time I was hit, my car that I just purchased less than 6 month’s prior to the accidents, it didn’t make it.

Being that I work primarily in the fitness industry this was very hard physically to see some of the limitations I was having after both accidents.  I had headaches regularly, my body was very sore constantly.  I would easily forget things I had just done or said in the first few weeks following these accidents. It was terribly frustrating at the time.

Thankfully, I know my body well and went directly to my chiropractor and medical doctor right after the accidents. I immediately got the support I needed and have bounced back extremely quickly so I can keep working doing what I love.

That being said, the accidents also opened something up for me. I realized I really had no back up plan if something were to happen that I didn’t “bounce back” again if something else were to happen. The question to myself was “If I am not able to dance anymore, then what?”

I realized this year that my passion is and always will be to support others in discovering what lights them up. Supporting others in finding the relationships they are looking for. Supporting people of all abilities to move and find their groove! Supporting others in making their dreams reality, whether it be fitness goals, relationships, financial, building businesses, creating extraordinary events, and so much more.

The company I have built, the Live OUT LOUD Movement, is so much more than just a fitness program based primarily in Zumba Fitness.

The Live OUT LOUD Movement is a LIFE MOVEMENT.

A place to take all that seems like heavy weights on our shoulders and discover the silver lining within them all to produce extraordinary results in the face of no agreement in life.

I truly believe that everything happens in our lives for a reason. Even all the “bad stuff” that I wish never happened. I see it as it had to happen to show me something that I couldn’t see was available before. In the moment, it never “feels” that way, however the true gift of this MOVEMENT is the opportunity to look more in-depth at what is happening and discover what I/we can’t see right away.  Discovering the knowledge that is hidden deep within what ails us to creating a strong and vibrant life that impacts ourselves and others by what is discovered!

I am in the process of rebuilding new aspects to the Live OUT LOUD Movement and new offerings over the next few months to really dive deep into what is possible through this company to help people in a unique way.

I hope you stick around to see what is next and how it all plays out. I will always continue to dance for as long as my body will let me, you can bet money on that and now is the time for me to take what I have built thus far and expand it far beyond where it is today!


I'm under construction and loving it

Do You Maintain Your Body Like Your Car?

Our bodies are like cars….we take them out for a ride usually in full gear, bump into things, get a few scrapes, rev our engines. We can be found flying down the highway or maneuvering our way in and out of tough spots and then we bring it back in at the end of the day and park it in our “garage”.

After so many miles driving your car you need to do an oil change or in the case of your body a good massage or chiropractic treatment are great ways to refuel the engine.  We also need to clean the car regularly….yes…in the case of your body I highly recommend regular showers for your sake and ours!

The unfortunate part that has us be similar to cars is that after so many miles, if you do not maintain your car, it will stop working.

The unfortunate difference is that with a car you  can trade it in for a new one….your body….YOU CAN’T! You only get one!

That being said, be sure to regularly maintain your body by working out, eating well, resting and spoiling yourself to a few Spa Days rather than Sick Days!

Really?! Why should being sick get you a holiday day, take one for taking care of yourself regularly!

What is Happiness?

Happiness (via webster’s dictionary)

a : a state of well-being and contentment : joy

b : a pleasurable or satisfying experience

The be all and end all that everyone in every culture strives for.  How do you know you don’t already have it?

The experience of life is one with many emotions.

Remember when you were a kid and nearly everything was the COOLEST thing you ever saw or heard? At some point in our lives those moments become a “been there done that” phenomina and we forget the amazement of things that can create happiness. We begin to look outside ourselves for happiness to show up.  However, it will never happen that way.

Happiness comes from within and while an outer experience can have the “happiness” experience show up, it still must come from you.  The decisions and or choices you make in YOUR OWN life are what will lead you to these moments.  When you begin to own your experiences, create experiences that cause you to laugh and play in life, then you truly begin to experience happiness and you stop “looking” for it!

Happiness can show up by taking on something that you enjoy doing or perhaps something that allows you to release healthy endorphins through your body.

Life is simply too short to not enjoy the little moment’s in life that create happiness!
