Los Angeles Conference 2014 Attended Zumba® Los Angeles Conference 2014
When I first tried Zumba, 7 years ago, I felt like I had woken up. As an over-busy homeschool mom of 4, I was stressed, cranky, and tired all the time. Zumba gave me the creative and physical release that I needed. My body changed, my energy increased, and I found that I was suddenly a happier, more patient mother- I enjoyed being with my kids again. I was hooked, and my family was happy to help me make the time to be in classes regularly. Having come from a background in theater and dance from the age of 9, teaching classes was the next logical step. In doing so, I was shocked to discover that I also loved fitness, and became certified as a personal trainer. The joy that I get from watching others become happier and healthier has made every day of teaching group exercise classes for the last 5 years worthwhile. It is my dream job, and I wouldn't trade it for anything!
