Hello, my name is Manny, and my passion is ZUMBA® Fitness.
My Journey began in October 2010, weighing in at 325 lbs., various medical problems, I woke up one day and said enough is enough. I have so much to live for, but how? So how do I accomplish my goals without being on a tread mill all day long and bored?
So got up, joined a local fitness club, hired a personal trainer, and then it started. Was rough and intense but so worth every drop of sweat. So, one day in passing I saw this class and everyone was dancing and having a great time, and I Love to Dance, so I walked in into my 1st ZUMBA® Fitness Class. I lasted all but about 15 minutes before walking out because of my fears. I took another chance, had to conquer this fear. This time I was called to the front of the class for a song. Well, the rest is a journey that to this day brings joy to my heart and soul. ZUMBA® Fitness saved my life. I now want to pass my Passion and Love for ZUMBA® Fitness to you. Let's make a difference together. Let's Live, Love and Dance our Hearts away and get fit at the same time. Fitness in disguise.
I became a licensed Zumba® Instructor in July 2011. The reason is simple: Every class feels like a Fiesta! Come join me and you'll see what I mean. You don't even have to know how to dance. Just move your body and follow my lead. It's easy!
