Zumba is so much fun!

If you are someone who goes to the gym and counts the minutes until your workout is over…it may be time for you to try something different.

I was there once too…

I used to go to the gym and get on a treadmill and within 4 minutes (and I may be stretching that a little to make it seem like I really gave it all I had to make it to 5 minutes…) all I could think of was how long I had to keep doing this to reach the end.

Sound familiar?

Don’t get me wrong.  The gym can be GREAT! Some people really love it and I encourage my clients to switch it up and go if it inspires them. Trying different things can keep you from plateauing in your workouts.

When I found Zumba, my first reaction to the video I watched was “This is AMAZING!! I wanna do this!”

When I found my first class and went my first reaction was (tons of laughter from me) and “What the heck am I doing? I must look like a clown right now!”

The difference between yoga classes and Zumba classes (besides the obvious differences) is this…when you laugh and can’t stop in is fun and contagious….when you laugh and can’t stop in yoga…they kick you out…

I learned that one on my own too

(hence why I also teach Laughter Yoga…Kinda more my style)

After taking a few Zumba classes (started out with one a week), I began to know the moves a little more and fell in love with music and how FAST the class went.  I felt like I just stepped into class and suddenly we were at the cooldown.


Just like that I was sweaty, relaxed and DONE my workout!! Felt so good!!

Each week came with more moves, new rhythms and then this class called Zumba Toning started and class was different but still as much fun as regular Zumba.  Then came Zumba Senato!!

What??!! All this from the Zumba Family??

The great part was that this class gave me a new way to continue doing what I loved and a new way to work my muscles so I didn’t plateau in my workouts.


Fast forward to 10 years now…2 years as a student and coming up 8 years teaching.

People often as me “Is Zumba just a fad?”

Honestly, I don’t know…I have been doing it for a decade now and I am not bored and have no interest in quitting. I love it. It is passion. It is play. It is sweaty fun with an AMAZING community of people! I cannot imagine going back to anything else.

I think there are quite a few people out there, just like me, that a decade has passed and we are all wondering where the time went because it is just that AWESOME and easy to get hooked doing it!

Hope you come have some laughs, sweat and groove moves with us all soon! It is NEVER too late to start!

Much love,

Giving Fitness As A Gift

Do you want 2016 to totally ROCK for your friends and family?

This morning I woke up with an idea and being that I am The Founder Of FUN & FITNESS around here (hehehehe…if you are going to give yourself a title, it may as well be fun!) I came up with an idea to support you in supporting the people you love with getting their groove on, dealing with their stress in a positive way, having them see results in their health without even knowing it happened…..all simply by having them come out and do ZUMBA with me!

I will take GREAT CARE of your friends and family and ensure that they are laughing, sweating, burning through the calories and leaving every class feeling completely free from the worries of the day!

In the spirit of giving this year and giving you an opportunity for it to be affordable to KICK START the people you loves journey into zumba, I am offering (to NEW clients only) 10 classes for $50 (first pass only…that’s a $40 savings) from now until December 31, 2015.  If you have never attended one of my classes and want to get in on this deal, you can and if you want to purchase one for a friend too you can!

I have never done this before however, what I am seeing is how much I love what people get out of class and I just want people to see what is possible for themselves!  You never know if you are good at OR just truly enjoy something unless you give it a try.

When I took my first zumba class nearly 7 years ago I loved the music but had two left feet.  Mary would go right and I would go left….it took me about 4 classes to start following a little better, by my 6th class I had made great improvements and I was having fun.  To be honest I was having fun right from the start. The music will have you feeling joyful right away and the steps are pretty simple (I was a slow learner, and that is TOTALLY OKAY in Zumba!)


In my classes, there are NO mirrors.  There is a reason for that. It is more important that you are moving and letting your mind go with the music then seeing yourself and others and judging whether you measure up.  Honestly, nobody cares, everyone is just having fun and by not having to see themselves they are able to just have a great time and move.

I keep the class the simple….3-4 moves per song and you do not need to have a dance background to get it.  Come and see for yourself! Soon into the class you will be dancing and singing along and you will forget whatever stresses you were up against all day.  Your whole body and mind will shift in a 60 minute class and you will go home relaxed.

So to recap, here is the DEAL

Gift the Gift of Zumba!

$50 for 10 classes (NEW people only) good for 2 months from start of first class attended 

That’s a savings of $40!!!!

Offer Expires December 31, 2015
