I found my fitness passion, Zumba™ Fitness, by accident. I was always a lone wolf when it came to anything fitness: treadmill, weights, elliptical, ear buds in and no acknowledgement of the world around me. One day, walking past one of the fitness studios in my gym, I saw a Zumba class and decided I had to try it; they just looked like they were having so much fun! Three years later, I decided it was time to get licensed and did with my elder daughter with whom I sometimes team teach. I’m currently licensed for Zumba™ Basic 1 and 2 and have my Glutes and Burst specialties. I’ve been married for 24 years have 3 grown children and a small(ish) herd of cats. Outside the gym, I love to crochet and am a computer and electronics nerd.
Why I want to get in shape
In March, 2011 I was on a business trip and my flight was late and I was about to miss my connecting flight. I was with other co-workers and we had to run to our gate. Only I couldn't run. Best I could do was a brisk walk and I was the last one on the plane (thanks to my co-workers stalling the gate agent). It was then that I decided it was time to drop the weight and get into shape.
- I want to look in the mirror and not frown.
- I want to live up to the inspiration people say I am.
