I am on a quest to be the fitness queen of my former days!!!! I have recently turned 30, and since I have discovered Zumba, I think I am on my way to achieving my fitness goals. My biggest goal is to become a Zumba instructor!!!! Even though I am not at my goal weight, I still want to try for the certification on JAnuary 30th :)
I teach English at our local high school; I am actually our English Department Chair!! I am completing my Master's in Education Administration. I love to read, travel, scrapbook, and do ZUMBA!! I have a husband but no kids. Our shih tzu named Emme is like our toddler, though :)
I know you have been a member for awhile but, I wanted to welcome you to your new team again "Dance to get Skinny & Healthy again with ZUMBA". We are happy that you joined. Please, feel free to join in so we can get to know you and hopefully help each other. "Every Day is Day ONE."
PS: TROOPER735 says she lost 50 pounds doing Zumba.
Hey Girl!!! Thanks so much for your comment! I appreciate it so much! :) Keep striving for that goal! You'll definitely get there! Have you signed up to get certified yet? It's anywhere from 200-235 dollars, but so worth it! I've been teaching since June, but only am getting certified in January. I was extremely blessed to have a mentor teach me everything I know, and was very lucky to already work in a gym, where I was able to sub for her, and eventually got my own class about a month ago :) Keep in touch! I would love love love to keep chatting with you!
Congratulations on your decision to become an instructor! Let me know if you have any questions. There are 3 Zumba teams, join them! Zumba Lovers is the one with the most people I think. I'd recommend you join ZIN at your workshop. It is $30/month, but if you are going to teach, it's VERY valuable. You get choreography, music, and access to incredible information on their site.
