Graduate Assistant for Programming and Promotions
 
Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a nursing student at Adelphi, and I teach Group Fitness classes about 5 days a week.
 
How did you become interested in Group Fitness?
As a former dancer, teaching Zumba fitness was a great way to kick start my fitness aspirations. It combines dance with fitness as a form of “fun” cardio.
 
What is your favorite class to teach? Why?
I love teaching Zumba fitness because it is the best form of cardio I’ve ever done and its tons
of fun. I get the opportunity to really have fun with and interact with my participants.
 
How has exercise influenced your life?
My passion for fitness is a life-style, not just a habit. Exercise has been extremely important to
me my entire life. As a service member in the Armed Forces, staying in shape is a mandatory requirement. Over time, however, I realized that fitness can also be enjoyable and not just a tedious everyday task. The health benefits have been consistently proven throughout research to improve life expectancy and quality of life.
