Not all who wander are lost; some are just dancing to their own beat

When someone asks me why I chose to become a Zumba® Instructor my answer is always the same: "Zumba® Fitness has changed my life." Throughout my life I have always suffered from slight depression, which caused me to become overweight. After having my daughters, my weight gain became unforgivable and my depression/anxiety spells became more frequent. I refuse to succumb to medication so I began looking for outlets to solve both issues. 

 After attending my first Zumba® Class in 2008, I had never felt better in my life! My mind felt clear and stress free. My body felt exhausted and strong at the same time. I realized then and there that Zumba® Fitness was more than just an exercise program: it's a lifestyle. I went from always being miserable, not wanting to be around people, and not liking to dance, to being a complete social butterfly! I've also managed to lose, and keep off, 50 pounds! Along the way I've made some amazing friends and connected with fabulous people. 

 Zumba® Fitness changed me; come let it change you!
