Good morning!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was great.  We started with a super fun Zumba class on Saturday morning! thank you for waking up and showing up! 
Then I went to a jam session with a Zumba Jammer from Mexico, it was great.  His Zumba flavor brought many good memories.   Then Christmas party at my husband's job.  Sunday I taught Yoga Sculpt then I went to another AMAZING jam session with Meli.
I have many songs to bring to you, but I will do so slowly and  most of them will come next year after after our Christmas playlist ;)

Thanksgiving Week!

Good morning! and Happy Monday! 

I wanted to take a brief moment to express my appreciation to you guys.  In my home Thanksgiving is a big deal, yes of course the big meal that is prepared, but it seems like through out November we are appreciating each other more.  My son Eric, after Halloween begins his day with "Mama, Happy Thanksgiving" I pick up him from school, and he greets me the same.  I wanted to extend that same appreciation from my home to our studio :) You guys have no idea how my heart swelled up with happiness last week when on Tuesday I walked in at Flor De Mexico and I saw all of you waiting for class to start, I was truly humbled and it was the best birthday gift! So thank you for coming and dancing and joining me in our paths to stay active and strong.  

This week's Schedule:

Tuesday - 7:50pm Zumba
Thursday - 8am Pre-Turkey Burn 60min Class
Saturday -  8am Zumba/Zumba Toning

Please note there is a slight change on Thursday, Charito won't be able to join us, so I will be leading a 60min on my own. If you are in town, come workout before you feast :)

See you tomorrow!!!

Monday, November 2, 2015


Good morning!
Can you believe it's November already?  and we are still without a home :(   Here is an update

*THe Kickboxing Place: I have the approval letter, however it requires that the Union City come and do an inspection, check exits and establish capacity, etc....and that is a very pricey inspection.  It requires an investment that I really can't afford at this moment.


Found a place in Hayward (Main Street) where I can share the already established space with another Zumba instructor,  he really only practices training/boxing type of class.  He is looking for someone to share his space...COME IN TRUEFIT :) so we are discussing possibilities, and chances look very very good.   There are some details, fixes that need to be done to the space...this really looks like a real possibility.  I am excited to get back in action.  

In them meantime, if you want to workout with me you can join me at Crunch San Lorenzo:

Mondays: Zumba 6:30pm and Yoga Sculpt at 7:30pm
Saturdays: 11:00am Express Tai Box 
Sundays: 10:30am Yoga Sculpt

Charito also teaches her schedule is:
Wednesdays: 6:30pm BBT Boot Camp and 7:00pm Zumba
Fridays: 6:00pm Zumba

Friday, October 23, 2015



Well I've been trying to hold out from giving out an update as I am still waiting.  It's very frustrating.  So before I give you a summary of how things are looking in terms of finding a new home for TrueFit, let me tell you how you can request a refund if you choose to:

Step 1. Take a photo of your card
Step 2. Send it to my email
Step 3.  Include your mailing address

Okay so here is the update:

Kickboxing Place (same complex)
It has become a bit difficult to get the approval.  I am told all is fine, and waiting on approval letter....I will only keep waiting until this weekend.  After that, this option will be crossed off.

2nd Dance Studio
This one is bigger space, although not very practical for our purposes.  Needs a lot of TLC which will require a bigger investment.   But it seems more likely that I can reach an agreement.  But based on the conditions, if I take this option it will likely be January 1st when we come back.   

Option 3:
I started looking at other place in Union City and Hayward. 

At this point things look bleak that we will be back on the Calorie burning path at the end of October or November.  

SO PLEASE don't feel like you need hold on to your cards, I totally understand, I am beyond frustrated as we were so doing well.  So follow the above instructions for a refund.   If you want to continue to hold on to your card, you may do so, and I will try my best not to let you down in finding a new place!

In the mean time keep checking facebook for events that we can attend as a group :)   Also if you miss Zumba with me please note that I am teaching at Crunch San Lorenzo.  Schedule will be changing a bit in a few weeks, so check the schedule on the Crunch website 

Also check out Maria Charito's facebook page! she meets with some of you every Saturday or (almost every Saturday) at Cal State East Bay and does boot camp style workout, and it's free ;) Just Friends getting together and working out! 

Monday, October 5, 2015

Good Morning - Location Update

Hope you are doing well!

I've missed you! it looks like all signs post that we are set! Business License is renewed, so now just hashing out lease details.   We are in the same complex.   Unit 130 - where the Sign for Heritage Kickboxing is.  We also need to move our flooring/mirrors.   I am thinking by the end of the month we will be up and running again! hopefully sooner! I hope we get to do our Halloween Glow Party this year! 

Keep active in the TrueFit facebook page, and let's keep ourselves accountable! 

Stay well!

Well I will talk more about convention at a later blog, just know it was amazing, I will definitely try to make it every year if possible.   I hanged out with many Bay Area Zin's (Zumba Instructors) and it was great sharing with them and being excited for them, knowing that they were getting inspired just as much as I was.   I will do a more detail experience, it's just it's a day of catch up today! but I will leave you with this video of the magic moments of ZINCON2015 :)

I can't wait to see you guys tonight!!! 

Monday, August 10, 2015

8.10.15 Schedule

Good morning!
AAHHH!!! I am super excited and super nervous for my upcoming trip! I will be in Orlando for Zumba Convention - Roseann will be joining me :)
Some of my sessions include Arabian Nights, Punk Rock, Mexican Fiesta (you know it!) Bachata, Bollywood, LatinTronika (of course - this includes Tribal, Latin House and Tango Electronico!)  

I am excited to go and learn, have fun, dance, and then come back and try to retain everything in my brain so that I can give you even more! 

However, the nervousness comes that everybody is staying at home! and honestly I am more nerves about this big guy than the human little ones! My summer move has not been good for his nerves, the house is still a mess as we are dealing with contractors, and a 3 week job has now been gone and beyond.  There is no doggy door installed yet. Neighboors are not happy, and at this point I can't say anything about it other than just hide my face in embarrassment.  I was hoping he will feel safe and comfortable before kids go back to school.  
But I have been re-assured everything will be fine. The husband fixed the fence hopefully he will not try to break out again, the back door is now open all day long, and I've been re-assured that doggy door will be installed by the time I get back. So I am passing my stressful burden off to the husband.  During the 23 years of marriage (YES! it's been that long!) we have had 3 sets of dogs, and not one set of dogs have ever broken down fences to escape, so this has been making me more nervous.

ANYWAY! HAVE FUN while I am way.  You will be taken care of by the wonderful Charito and Ms. Faye! Here is this week's schedule!

Also in case I don't have time to make next week's blog post this the the FOLLOWING week's schedule - please note that the 7:15pm Zumba is "low impact" Zumba! 

I'll see you guys in a week, and make sure to follow the TrueFit FB page as I will be posting pictures while at convention! 


Monday, August 3, 2015

Schedule 8.3.15

Good morning!
Here is this week's schedule! please note there is no Sunday class!  

I have a few annoucements, 1st! Charito, Javier and I want to give our Students a Special 90min Zumba class! there will be a BBQ afterwards! bring a side dish to share :) This is a thank you for coming and sweating with us during the summer! We also want to celebrate that in September 1st I took over the Studio formerly known as Dans' di Ballo and now TRUEFIT!

We are also fundraising for Joysse - a little girl who is battling  Leukemia, to know more about her story check her page  so come join us! 

This past weekend I did a lot of Instructor related events :) First on Saturday I did a Jam Session with a jammer from Singapore! and guess what? one of the routines we learned was a K-Pop! totally out of the realm of my comfort zone, so that means, get ready because it's going to be part our playlist!

Also Tamara, the master trainer for BollyX came over to TrueFit and helped a few instructors film the assesment video, keep your fingers crossed that I pass! they seem to be really picky about their wide squat, we have to be LOW.  
We also celebrated a few Zin's birthday with a zumba party, it was fun! guest instructors were very cool!  

See you guys Tuesday! DO NOT SKIP MONDAY! LOL Charito and Roseann will be waiting for you!

Monday, July 27, 2015

Week 7.27.15 and August Annoucements

Good morning!
Hope you all had a great weekend! here is this week's schedule:

Hope to see you in a non-Zumba class :) seriously, we all love to dance, it's fun, you let loose and you get a good sweat going! BUT training differently, not only shocks your body it gives you better results! I am so thankful for those of you who come to my Insanity, PiYo, Turbo Kick and and Pound classes.  You get a different kind of sore. One of my regular zumba students tried Insanity for the 1st time last week and she texted me (I won't put her on the spot by saying her name ;) 

"My stomach has been sore for 2 days after insanity. That means it's working, also haven't worked out that part in months, that's why I am going to do that class again. I like it"

And she is right, Core training is essential to prevent injuries believe it or not! and PiYo, Insanity, Pound and even Turbo Kick really does a good job at giving you a core strengthening workout!  

Before I start with upcoming announcements I want to give a special shout to those who came and dance for Nepal! some of you could only stop by and donate, we are grateful! and for those of you who danced you got a chance to dance with different style of flavors that is always a nice treat! 

In August Roseann and I will be traveling to Orlando for the annual Zumba Convention! I am so EXCITED! this is my first convention and I am excited about all the things I will learn! So with that said, here is August's schedule 

Maria Charito will be subbing most of my classes and Faye will sub my Tuesday and Thursday Zumba classes! Please show them some love and appreciation! being a Sub is not easy :) 

Also stay tune we may do a Farewell to Summer class in August/September if timing works out :) 

Have a great Monday!

Last Friday it was so much fun at the Zumba toning Event! Thanks Jennie and Jennifer for coming with me and representing TrueFit!  Hopefully I can get some time to choreograph some new toning songs now that I have the moves still fresh in my mind :)

Either way you will get an awesome workout this Friday :)

This weekend I spent my whole weekend in student mode! it was awesome.  Tiring but really good! Sometimes I need that, just be a student.  On Friday I went to Toning Master Class.  Saturday I went to a Jam Session, and I do have a few new of them a Tribal *high five* on Sunday we were ALL DAY at the studio getting certified for Bollyx Format.  Keep your fingers crossed that I passed the assessment! I know a few of you have asked me if I will bring this format to the studio.  At this point in time I have no immediate plans.   We are still launching and buildilng PiYo which is a great format, so if you haven't come to take my class, DO! take care of your muscles/body so that you can continue to dance and go hard! :)   I will revisit the adding BollyX later this year.

Good morning TrueFit'ers! Can you believe it's June 1st already! 2nd half of the year brings new beginnings for me! Not just as a small business owner but in my personal life too, so I am excited and I am embracing all these positive changes with open arms!

First thing first! I want to welcome Maria Martinez, but please call her Charito, she feels the the love when you do ;) with that being said, we have a new General schedule 

This will be the general schedule, but please check every Monday as sometimes we cancel Friday/Saturday classes for special events or maybe I just need a day off ;).  I am very excited about having Charito with us, first I am excited for you guys to experience her awesomeness! 2nd, I GET A REST DAY! yep, Monday's are my official rest days! 3rd, I get the opportunity to re-vive an awesome format, which is POUND! if you all did not make the Free class last Friday, I have great news! Every Saturday morning you will get to rock out with me! Your core and lower body will LOVE you for it! 

So here is THIS week's schedule! please note there is only ONE class this Friday:
I will be participating in a Zumba fundraiser for Nepal, if you can't make it, but still want to donate, I will be accepting donations, and will be happy to submit your donations on your behalf.  

I have so many annoucements! LOL, I don't want to overwhelm you but at the same time I want to share and invite you.  Before I go into all the June events, let me first tell you that this month I am personally doing a food challenge, basically it's eating a lot of whole foods, it is called whole 30
I will be creating a closed group to support each other, do you have to follow the guidelines 100%? no, you know yourself, and where you want to be.  For myself, I will try my best to follow it as closely as possible, and will love for you guys to join me! basically, lots of veggies, lots of lean protein :) 

Now that I got that out of the way, maybe the easiest way to let you know about the June events will be with this calendar:

Have an awesome Monday/Week!
