What do you teach at CORE Studios?
I teach Zumba at Core Studios!
What got you into teaching? After having my son, I gained a significant amount of weight. I tried everything to get it off, including crazy diets and every Saturday morning infomercial exercise gadget that you can think of. I finally decided to try Zumba. I wasn’t going to invest in a whole collection of DVD’s just to have them collect dust on the shelves. Instead, I chose to try a live class. That was the best decision I have ever made. I’ve been hooked since!
How long have you been teaching? I have been an instructor and actively teaching Zumba since June 2011. Since then I have also become licensed to teach Zumba Toning (which uses weights) and Zumbatomic (which is Zumba for kids).
What two adjectives would you use to describe your classes? My classes are high energy and addictive!!!
Tell us a little bit about what your focus is for your classes?
The focus for my classes are for people to have lots of fun while relieving stress and burning a significant amount of calories at the same time.
Do you have any upcoming projects or events you are excited about?
Absolutely! On Saturday, June 29, 2013, I will be having a Zumba Party on the Square from 8:00-10:00pm. The reason that I am so excited about it is because this party will help with Zumba’s efforts to end world hunger. In short, people get to help in 2 ways. The first way is to donate burned calories to Zumba, and in turn, Zumba gives a cash donation to charities such as World Food Programme and Feeding America. The second way is to purchase a Zumba Rhythm Rocker World Hunger Stopper shirt or outfit, and 30% of the proceeds will go toward these charities as well! As an added bonus if you are interested in saving 10% on your order, please use my Zumba Affiliate Code dress4less. For specific details on how to do both, please visit www.greatcaloriedrive.com.
What do you love about CORE Studios?
I am originally from Decatur, and there is no place like home! I love CORE Studios because it is in the heart of the square, and it embodies all of the positive high energy that I need to help make my classes optimally successful.
