About Emily

I began taking Zumba classes in fall of 2007, and I have been hooked ever since! If you have ever felt the need to dance to your favorite song on the radio, then Zumba is for you! No experience is required (my background comes from show choir only), just an ability to have fun! Listen to the music, and burn calories while you spend an hour with me!

Zumba has been the catalyst for my interest in health and fitness. Since becoming an instructor in October 2009, I have run 15 half marathons and one full. I am a licensed Strong by Zumba and Piloxing instructor as well. Most importantly though, I am an ACE certified personal trainer, group fitness instructor, and fitness nutrition specialist. 

One thing I hope to bring to class participants is a level of FUN and ENERGY that is unparalleled. For an hour, I hope my fitness class will transport you into a world away from whatever it is life is dealing.  Personally, I deal with issues around positive self-esteem, but I will say that Zumba is the one hing that truly lets me break out of my shell without ever feeling judged.
