When Michelle first tried a Zumba class several years ago, she had not been to a group fitness class in over 10 years….and it showed! She started out in the back, by the door, so that she couldn’t be seen in the mirror and she had to take breaks during the class. But she was in love! Since then Michelle has lost a bunch of weight, gained a ton of energy, friends and confidence (and lost the glasses!). Zumba is one of the best things to have ever come into her life. Michelle loves teaching Zumba and bringing this party to everyone with the hope that it impacts their lives as positively as it’s impacted hers.
