New Digs....Heart N Soul Dance Studio

Ok, so now the cat is out of the bag and I feel so good about it! I am starting a Tuesday/Thursday 8 P.M. class at a really charming dance studio just west of the Wal-Mart in Springville. The main reason I am doing this is to have a little more freedom in what I do and to also draw a broader audience. I can't tell you how many people tell me they want to bring their sister/cousin/spouse whoever it is that doesn't have a membership at the gyms I teach and they just can't come for a reasonable fee. So...... now they can!! I really feel torn about leaving my 3 classes at Golds and 24 Hr. Fitness but I am still keeping MOST of them!! I promise once you come try a different atmosphere, amazing floors, and mirrors you will love it too! I really hope you all are as excited as I am!

Classes start Tuesday 30th of November....

And now for the nitty-gritty Pricing Details:

10 class punchcard for $40

$5 drop-in fee

*Also, the first time for any new person is always free..but let's be honest once you try it you won't be able to stay away.

Changes...New Horizons

Well, I don't know if anybody reads this anymore cause I am not a good blogger :) but I am just so excited about what is coming up that I can't not post about it. In fact it is way past my bedtime and I just can't turn my brain off about it. So here it is... For more than a year I have been contemplating doing my own zumba classes at a location other than the gyms, not that I don't love the gyms (are you kidding me they are my second home) but I want to bring zumba to a wider audience. I can't tell you how many times people have wanted to come try a class and they can't because they aren't members at either Golds nor 24 Hour. So over much deliberation I have been scouting out places where I could set up shop and do my own independent thing. Now don't go crazy on me and think I am leaving my two Mother gyms (never) but I am adding to my schedule which means I might have to take away somewhere... I hope that this makes more people happy than sad since it will be more open, and people who don't want contracts or big monthly fees can pay by individual class or a punch card.

Now as far as details go...just hold your horses for a few more days till I work some kinks out. So to anyone out there reading :) that's my happy news!!

Zumba dreams and good night!

Zumba has brought me PEACE

As you know by now I am a terrible blogger and I rarely post anything new but today I have to write about how Zumba has helped me make peace with myself and my body. It probably comes as no surprise that being in the fitness industry there is a lot of pressure to be or look a certain way and since I started teaching in 2006 I have struggled to find a healthy balance for myself as I navigate my way in this business. That is where Zumba comes in. In 2008 I started teaching Zumba and it completely revolutionized the way I think about my body. For once it was a good thing to have a booty (all the more to shake and throw around when you dance) for once i was proud of my hips and my well-endowed chest, which in kickboxing had been nothing but a nuisance. I started seeing my body differently...not so negatively. I love watching people come to Zumba for the first time. I love watching their faces in surprise at all the shapes, sizes, sex, colors, and types of people that are in the class. I love watching them in disbelief the first time they hear people yell out when we start shaking it a lot and everybody just gets so into it.
And that is why Zumba has changed my perspective on fitnesss, and life. Here is the sacred Zumba secret (according to me): There will always be somebody who is a better dancer than me, skinnier than me, nicer clothes than me etc. but in a good Zumba class somehow that all disintegrates and fades away and everyone is equal, all there to ditch the workout and join the party!!! So thank you Zumba Gods for helping little old me see things a little more clearly...

ok, so what is your favorite song to do in class? Just wondering what type you guys want more of?? Come on give it to me straight!!

Wednesday, February 10, 2010


Well, today was one of those days where you just don't know if it will feel crummy (thanks to being a female and something about cramps), you feel bugged and you just want to curl up in a fetal position and call it a day. As the day went on I knew ZUMBA was going to be a struggle and I would have to really push to make it a good class. I contemplated getting a sub and taking a break but I knew deep down that moments like that is when I need it the most. So I drug myself to the gym wondering how I was going to motivate 50+people into sweating their hearts out. Suddenly, everything changes, I walk into the room, I see the faces of the people that inspire me! There is (for privacy purposes you will remain nameless) Lady X who smiles at me and asks me how my day was. There is Lady Y who has lost 40 pounds coming to my classes over the past year. There is Lady Z who tells me she can't wait to do a particular song today. All of a sudden my stomach ache is disappearing and my heart starts beating as I get the music ready for the warm-up.

The music starts and everyone lights up..the energy is building and people are starting to get that look on their face that I crave. They are happy, and yet they are sweating. They are smiling and yet they are building muscles and burning calories.

30 minutes into the class and all my stressors and pain from earlier is completely gone...I am energized and relaxed. This is called the power of ZUMBA this is why I have the best job in the world.

Class comes to an end and I want to keep moving, keep dancing. One hour and the entire tone of my day is changed. Thank you ZUMBA and thank you ZUMBA goers!! I NEED you!!
