Studio G and Zumba has changed my life and gave it a complete 360. I have beendoing Zumba for over a year and have lost over 50 pounds and about 10 inches from Zumba, Belly Dance, HipHop Dance and incorporating a healthy diet and resistance training. I started off weighing 225 pounds, more than what I should weigh and size 17. I am now 155 pounds and a size 8. After having 2 babies a year apart, I finally came to the conclusion that I had let myself go. I had to get myself back into shape and healthy. I decided to start going to the gym and after going to my first Zumba class, I fell in love. After two months of doing Zumba I knew I wanted to become an instructor. I want to motivate and help others by spreading the joy of how Zumba changed my life and the journey of becoming and living a better and healthier lifestyle. Not only has Studio G had a positive effect on me, but it has inspired my family members and friends to get their bodies into shape as well. Studio G is a place I love coming to that sets me away from everything else. When I’m at Studio G, I know I can be myself and let “loose”. Gena Brown and Studio G has been much inspiration on me and my fitness journey. I want to spread the same inspiration to the community that I live in. I know God has plans for me to spread the joy of living healthy, no matter what obstacles may come my way. I wake up everyday with the realization that this is it, that there's only one shot at this life and I can either enjoy the ride, live it to its fullest and to my highest potential or I can stay the way I am. Gena Brown is a prime example of a woman of inspiration and full of zest. I can proudly say that Studio G is “The Room Where Change Happens”.
