INSPIRATION TO BECOME AN INSTRUCTOR:
“Teaching and fitness are my passion. My biggest reward is when a member approaches me to share appreciation of his/her workout results. Exercise keeps me fit, physically and mentally. The energy I get in my classes, that joyful noise, connects all of us in one place. It’s the greatest feeling ever. I love it!”
