Since Mar 2012

I teach Zumba because it is AMAZING and because it changed my life!  It has allowed me to reclaim my health!  And at the age of 41 I am  in the BEST shape of my life!  After loosing 40lbs myself and seeing the progress of my students, I KNEW I had to share their success stories!  These are AMAZING people who are reclaiming their lives!  Showing that is is NEVER to late to get  to get cho’ sexy back!  This isn’t just about weight loss, its about celebrating YOU and being healthy, active and fit! So, lets celebrate!!!!

Celebration Corner!!!! 


The date was September 19, 2012, and I was turning 40.  In my mind, I felt great and excited about the future.  There was one hang up, however.  My beautiful spritely self was trapped in an overweight and sick body.  At only 5'1" tall, I was 167 pounds, a BMI of 30, and blood pressure of 140/90.  During a trip to the doctor in the days that followed, I got the shake-up of my life.  My doctor looked me squarely in the face, lips dripping with concern and revulsion, and said, "You are obese."  I was angry, and had finally had enough.  

With the help of my wonderful ZUMBA! Instructor, Mrs. Crystal Sylvester, and a few changes to my diet, I have managed to lose 34 pounds, two dress sizes, and watched my blood pressure drop to 117/70!  I have not been in a size 8 dress and seen blood pressure numbers like that since I had my first child almost 13 years ago.  I am still in disbelief that I can make a testament like this. I am proud of myself for sticking with it and so grateful to Crystal and all of my ZUMBA! girls that continuously encourage me and lift me up.  I could not have done it and cannot keep it up without you!
