I’m an AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor, and I’ve been teaching group fitness classes for 7 years. My favorite class to teach is Zumba in all the specialties (I’m licensed to teach Basic, Zumba Kids, Zumba Gold, Aqua Zumba and STRONG by Zumba), but my #1 favorite class to teach is Zumba Gold. My classes are very energetic but I always make them available for all fitness levels. I like to keep my classes in a positive tone; including the music I use because I believe you are a combination of everything you hear, you see, you eat and you do.
I have been teaching fitness classes for 28 years after getting certified with ACE in the early 90s. I have been both a participant and instructor for Bodyworks Dancercise classes. I have taught many classes at many different facilities over the years including building lean bodies, hips, thighs and abs, fit over 50 cardio blast and so many more.
I grew up in Bensenville and have been a AFFA certified Group Exercise Instructor for the Bensenville Park District since 2008. I teach a wide variety of classes including cardio, strength, HIIT, Yoga, BodyPump and more. I love the friendships that are built within group exercise, witnessing participants get stronger, seeing people do things they didn’t think they could and watching them succeed. Some days the hardest part about taking a class is getting in the door. Just get through the door and we’ll get you through the rest.
