When I discovered Zumba, in 2006, I fell in love and joined the gym (which I had never done before) just so I could go to class every week. The following March (2007) I became licensed to teach Zumba and have been partying every since. In 2009 I gave birth to a set of twins, and with Zumba, in just 6 months, I returned back to my pre-pregnancy weight with no stretch marks. In 2009 my doctor informed me that I had high cholesterol. The only reason I was not prescribed medication was because of my age. As small as I am with high cholesterol it re-confirmed for me the importance of health and wellness for everyone despite how thick, thin, tall or small we are. My doctor advised me to come back in 6 months to see if my cholesterol was under control. So, I cut back on my milkshakes, increased my Zumba classes and went back high cholestrol FREE. Zumba just might have saved my life. I encourage you to take care of your temple and find a class today!
