About Me

Hey, I'm Karen, thanks for stopping by. I'm a talker so I'll try to make this brief. This is why I teach Zumba.I teach because from the moment I completed my first Zumba class I knew that it was the most fun I ever had while becoming soaked in sweat and working every muscle in my body. On that day I stood in the back of the room (that's where we go when we don't want to be noticed) and followed the instructor as best I could. When it was over, I found myself exhausted (the good tired), challenged and checking the schedule to see when the next class met. I wanted to master the moves, improve my strength and increase my stamina. Thinking back on that day over two years ago, helps me to connect with my newbies (first time Zumba students). I still take classes, read, and study to stay up on the the latest fitness news and trends . My dedication to continued education enables me to offer my students fun and effective classes.

I subscribe to the holistic approach to good health. I'm a women in her midlife years, I've found what works for me. It is a healthy predominately plant based diet rounded out with Zumba classes, spinning, yoga, meditation and weight lifting. These activities support my health and well being.

One of the other hats I wear is certified life coach for women 50+. Recently I asked this group the following question. What scares you most about aging?
The majority said they were concerned about losing their health, (physically and mentally) therefore losing their independence. So with that info I set my sights on training to teach Zumba Gold in addition to Zumba Fitness classes. Zumba Gold is geared towards active older adults  who find themselves a bit deconditioned after having little or no physical activity; or those who are in need of a low impact aerobic class. Whether it's a  Zumba fitness class or a specialty class like  Zumba Gold either way you will have fun while getting a great workout!
Okay enough about me already. I look forward to meeting and getting to know you soon.

To Your Health,
Karen
