Insanity is Coming!


Howdy Fitness Pushers!

Well today I have several things that I wanted to talk you about...but I think I am going to be smart about this, instead of just throwing everything that is on my mind right now, I'll only pick ONE...we have to focus on just one thing at a time right?

Well I supported Maria Charito Martinez of M&M Fitness at Futsol Republic to give the first Insanity Fit test in Hayward, CA!  it was awesome!   Insanity will be taught at this facility starting this upcoming Friday, July 19th! and now for DRUM ROLL I will also start teaching Insanity at  Dans's Di Ballo' Dance Studio! I will hold the Free Fit  Test on Tuesday July 23rd! at 8:30pm - right after my Zumba class.  

Insanity in this group fitness setting is FOR EVERYONE! unlike the DVD's there are modifications, and we do encourage people to do the modifications...as they get stronger you will go all in! this is a major benefit of Insanity in a group fitness setting...other benefits, is the energy you get from the people around you! I've tried to do Insanity at home...ITS HARD, not just the program itself, but to get the mental toughness to put that DVD in and go all in, its not easy.  In the group fitness setting you get to class and you get into mindset right away because other people are there for the similar reasons as you are.  Their energy just feeds you, when you are workout, and you are are in the 2nd round of the warm up, you are thinking...WOW this is tough, and you look around you and your neighbor smiles at you and encourages you to keep going, when you High Five for a job well done! its AMAZING, you will feel empowered, like you can do anything!

I keep hearing "ooohhh Insanity, thats too hard" "I am scared" DON'T BE! this is the time to push past your limits! when we start our fitness journey, that is what its about! to accmplish  what we thought was not possible! Its time to get out of our comfort zone, for me thats Turbo Kick and Zumba, I already kick butt in those formats, its now time to conquer MY BEAST! and for me thats Insanity.   Remember your body will only change when you do the work! With that said, come and try the Free Insanity Fit Test!

For a litte motivation here is a video of the Insanity Master Class during the Certification! can you find me?

Lets Zumba! Take Advantage of Groupon Deal!

My Zumba classes at Dans Di Ballo are booming! :) classes are filling up and the energy is amazing! I am thankful for the very  first ladies that took a chance and came to class and spread the word :) Marie, Redina, Francy, Rosalinda, Claudia,  Guille, Teresa, Rose, Varsha, Ramila, Issa, Norma:)

We always start with 2 warm up songs (or a 6-8 min mix) my warm up are simple, I use the basic moves most of the time, the moves feel good to my body and I can feel my temperature rising! if I am feeling it, then I  know I am transmitting that to my students!







Then we start to work!! My playlist is...eclectic, I don't favor any one rhythm over another because I really like the variety!   Merengue, Cumbia, Bhangra, Quebradita, Regetton, bachata all is good!




One of the reasons I love Zumba is that it really makes me feel like I am a different person, but I am still ME!...I KNOW Contradictory and I probably make no sense, but I am not your typical zumba instructor.  I am not a "dancer" I never took dancing lessons, the dancing lessons I took was from my grandfather at parties.  I am not outgoing and loud..I am actually a quite person, I like to sit back and listen to people stories, I don't have to be the center of attention and most of the time I really don't seek that.  But in that hour, when I am teaching, Zumba or Turbo Kick, I am the center of attention, I need to be engaging and enthusiastic to inspire my students to push and work their (excuse my language) butt off! so for that hour, I turn into my alter-ego, and become the leader of the class, become the center of attention, and I am smiling, for that hour, I don't care that I have big'ol teeth, I will smile at you and through out the class, and it makes me feel amazing, which in turn I know my students feel amazing too.  We feed from each others energy, its amazing! so come and try it out! :)
