Zumba® Fitness!

Are You Feeling Those Fall Vibes?

I hope you had a great summer and are heading into fall, and whatever it may bring, head on! Today, I wanted to share with you the most random stroke of luck I received. About half way through August, I won a free Zumba® Instructor Training package!

I was so shocked, I rarely win things, let alone something as awesome as this!

I won this training through CanfitPro's Instagram page, (my parent coaching organization,) during one of the free tradeshow weekends we get to attend as registered coaches. I am going to share a secret with you; the first time I tried it out I couldn't even get through the full hour! I had never done a Zumba class before this and did not know any of the moves. Also, 3 months of back-to-back virtual moderating courses and not being able to coach in person had me out of breath by the 45 minute mark!

As a coach, I started to wonder if I am cut out for any of this! After all, how can I teach a class that I am already out of breath just doing! Then I remember all my wonderful clients, and give myself the advice I would give them.

LIFE HAPPENS! It isn't how you got here; it's where are you going to go now?

We are never going to be perfect and the only way to get back to where we were is to give it another shot. This is how growth mindset and positive attitudes can guide you to better more fulfilling choices.


Plan, Persevere, & Payoff

It didn't happen in a day. As much as I desperately wanted it to, I know it doesn't work that way. It happened one day at a time, including rest days and proper nutrition & sleep.

My timeline was 1 month because that is how long I had to finish the course, which felt impossible. I created a plan & glued myself too it. That glue however, has a melting point and not every day was perfect! Accepting that and moving on to the next choice with a fresh mind and attitude was probably the only reason to accomplish as much as I did.

So, In Conclusion? I Did It!

I LOVE ZUMBA! I love to dance, workout & have fun all at the same time! I feel as if this opportunity found me because it was meant to be. As a trained personal trainer, I found training people for body building was just not what I wanted to focus on. Zumba isn't just fun dancing though. As I went through the training I learned so much about different cultures, heart rate, cardiovascular activity and the structure of the course. I also got the opportunity to take additional training on glute muscles which I found helpful to all my programs overall.
