Why I love my "job" (Zumba Boise, Idaho)

Received a lovely email this morning... Thank you, thank you to all of my clients that allow me to be part of your lives. Many of you have become far more than clients, and are now dear friends! YOU ARE WHY I LOVE MY "JOB"!! Thank you for taking the time to tell me that Zumba is making a difference for you!
Viva la ZUMBA!!

"I just want to thank you for introducing me to Zumba. I am loving it! I feel every minute of my workouts at home but the Zumba hour goes by so quickly!"

Monday, July 11, 2011

This trend keeps sizzling, while others are fizzling!

Check this article on! Zumba Fitness baby!! Aren't you glad to be a part of it?!

If you have armpits like a man....

I feel your pain! But sometimes, I have answers. Today is one of those such days!
Allante Family Medicine is offering unlimited, yes I said UNLIMITED laser hair removal for $35 per month!! Whaaaaaat?!! If you sign a 12 month contract, you pay $35/month and $1 per zap. If you sign an 18 month contract, you get 35 free zaps, and $1 per zap over the 35. Trust me when I say, this IS a good deal. (probably not the most cost efficient if you want to do a huge area, such as legs, but armpits, chin, lip, toes, feet, bikini- definitely worth it!)
They are only accepting 200 people for this program, so call them NOW!!

ZUMBA shoes on SALE in Boise

For the myriads of you that ask where to find good shoes- I just bought these (Puma Etoile 2 strap) today at Macy's for $35 +tax. This is a phenomenal price for Zumba shoes! I believe the regular price is between $55 and $60, depending on where you purchase. Get em while they last!!!

Information OVERLOAD!! but its good info you need to know!

I know I say it all the time, but I really really really mean it!! I have the BEST job EVER!! You all brighten my days and give me energy to power through the rest of life! I LOVE YOU ALL!!! Thank you for supporting me and giving me encouragement and honest feedback.

On a separate note-
We are turning things up a notch, with NON-STOP playlists!! No more 3-4 second breaks in between songs. This will allow for more songs in the same amount of time, and for a higher intensity class all the way around. However, this also means you MUST MONITOR YOUR INTENSITY LEVEL! Please modify as you need to if you feel like its too much. Don't bring up your knees as high, keep you hands lower or don't do hands at all, or do step touch in place of jumping/bouncing moves. And make sure you get water whenever you need it, since there won't be breaks where you would normally get one. WOOOOOT!!! I think you are going to love it. And if not, I'm sure I will hear about it! ;)

YES for class this Thursday and Monday, NO for class of THURSDAY APRIL 21st and MONDAY APRIL 25th as I will be teaching Zumba at the Rose City Salsa Festival in Portland!!

There is a Zumbathon at Boise State University on Saturday April 23rd from 10am-4pm. Proceeds are going toward diabetes and juvenile diabetes research. Not sure of the cost, and unfortunately, I had to turn down an offer to teach, as I will be Oregon, but there will be other fantastic instructors, so GO!!!

cheap, cute workout pants!!

Just a friendly little tip: Today I purchased some new workout pants, yoga style, from Forever 21 at the ripe old price of $7.50!! Fantastic fit, good, breathable material. I think they will be perfect for Zumba! There was only one rack of them (and as of today it was still pretty full) but I imagine they will go fast. So run, run, run to Forever 21 and buy some for yourself so you can feel sexy while you dance yourself sexy in my ZUMBA CLASS this Monday!!

Friday, January 28, 2011

A re-post, because its still pertinent info :)

One of the most frequent questions I have received from new patrons is "what should I wear to Zumba?" Good question- here is your answer:
Whatever regular workout attire you feel most comfortable in! Something that is easy to move in, and something that allows for adequate ventilation and body breathing. It will be different for everybody, just be sure that it is supportive in the necessary areas (ladies you know what I mean)!
Shoes need to be supportive tennis shoes. However, there is a lot of cross lateral movement in Zumba, and you may find that older shoes with worn down traction are best- so long as they still have good support.
If you are looking to make a new investment for Zumba shoes- any jazz or dance tennis shoe would be your best option. I wear Nike's dance shoe, that has a pivot in the toe, for easier turning and torquing. They run anywhere from $98- $130, depending on where you buy. I just found them on Zappos for $98.10.

Monday, January 24, 2011


Sick instructor = No class. :(
Sorry all. See you on Thursday. Please spread the word to anyone who might not have gotten my text, FB post, email or blog post. ;)
