Flashmob!

video

Ok ladies and gents-
Here is the flashmob routine. I filmed this on the first day of the New Gym being opened so please excuse Margaret and Cameron as they move across the front and there is some talking going on in the back ground. I wanted to re-film but never got a chance so this is as good as it gets! If you don't know about the flashmob please email us and we can update you the info. This will all take place on Dec. 31st. The next practice will be on Dec. 5th at town square park!

Fantastic Rates!

Hey everyone!

As you know Marti and I have stopped our Wednesday teaching. We feel like we are creating something at Desert Palms that you will not want to pass up. Here is the deal, you will not find it any cheaper so don't even try to go look, so if you go into Desert Palms and speak with Chelsie you can become a member for $18 a month. Everyone always says there is a catch and yes there is one, you will need to sign a 2 year contract but that is it! If you think about it $18 a month gets you all the benefits of the gym, including daycare. Desert Palms will be moving into there new facility in November and I promise you it will be fabulous. They will have new everything!! The aerobics room will be fantastic! I can't wait to start teaching over there. We will be adding 2 night classes on Tues. and Thurs. and also a Sat. class, including the classes we already have. I am also trying to get Zumba kids. You can bring your kids and while you are working out, lifting weights or relaxing in the spa your kids can take the Zumba kids class and start the good habit of exercise in a really fun way! Think about it but not for to long because this deal expires Oct. 31st so hurry into Desert Palms and take advantage of this great deal!

We love you all and still want you to join us for Zumba so please stop in and check it out!

"BETO"

Ok, so if you do not know who Beto is then you will now. He is the founder of Zumba and is so popular in the fitness world and throughout the world. He is an amazing instructor and you can't help but smile and enjoy his entire class. The energy he brings is unmatchable!! Marti, I and 3 other Zumba instrutors from St. George traveled to Salt Lake 2 weeks ago to take a master class from Beto himself. It was his first time in Utah and it was awesome! There was about 200 people in the class so if you can only imagine the energy level. One of my favorite parts was watching Beto mess up. Yea! Marti and I are not the only ones who mess up everytime we teach. It made me realize that we are all just trying to do our best and mess ups will happen and thats what makes us human. Anyway, is was great fun and I wish all of you could experience a Beto class so hopefully one day he will come to little St. George. If not here maybe we can all travel to Las Vegas if he shows up there. I will keep an eye out for a Beto sighting! Enjoy the pics

Save a Horse!!

Yea to Brandee Williams for winning our first song selection contest!! Brandee submitted the song "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" and I picked it for choreography. Since Zumba is based around international dance we needed a little country on our playlist. It was a lot of fun to choreograph and I hope all of you liked it! It will be posted next week on video for all of you to learn at home. Brandee went home with a drawsting Zumba bag to use for all her workout gear!

Also, Our DVD is finally for sale! If you would like one you need to email us and we can tell you how and where to get it!! It was a lot of fun to film and we hope that it will help you at home reach your goals and have fun while doing it.

Wednesday Excitement

Kasey Bale won our February drawing this month. We hope you like your new Zumba t-shirt and thank you for coming to Zumba and sharing your energy and love for Zumba with us.



Everyone tends to ask us if we are married and how many kids so here we are with our families.

Marti was married in May 1997. As you can tell she has three beautiful girls. Besides Zumba she is a loan officer and a doTerra consultant. She loves what she does. She wears many hats and is always organized. She loves to read, play games, play with her kids and she is a sucker for a good love story movie.



Kerry was married in June of 1996. She has four lovely kids. Kerry loves to teach Zumba and cycling classes. Besides teaching she likes to do triathlons. She has nine under her belt and plans to add a couple more this year including a marathon. Her friends say she is addicted to exercise but what better thing to be addicted too! She loves to plan things, play on weekends with her family and sharing her talents with friends and family.

Relax time!

In the past we have shown what Marti and I do when we are not teaching Zumba every day, so here is some recent pictures of your instructors enjoying some time outside of the gym. I think Marti wins though. I tried to get to New York with her but there was no room at the inn. She said she gained ten pounds there but it must have fallen off her when she showered after coming home. I think she is confused! I rekindled my love for snow skiing but had to take it easy because I did not want to hurt my knees and not be able to come home and teach Zumba (I'm not so young any more). That would be sad. I did try to shake it on the hill but it doesn't work very well in ski boots.
If any of you have pictures of yourself doing fun things please email them to me so I can post them here so we can see what all the Zumba Girls do on their free time!! Love you guys and Love Zumba!!

January Goals

Tradition dictates that every 365 days, you should try to kick bad habits and start your life anew. So sit down with a cup of hot chocolate, a paper and a pen, and reflect: What kinds of New Years Resolutions will you make for yourself this January?

Step 1 Be realistic by setting achievable goals. Running a 3 minute mile, for example, is out of your grasp.

Step2 Describe your resolutions in specific terms. Instead of "I don't want to be lazy," opt for "I want to exercise regularly" or "I will cut down on my television watching."

Step3 Break down large goals into smaller ones. For instance, commit to losing weight by resolving to join a gym and improve your eating habits.

Step4 Find alternatives to a behavior that you want to change, and make this part of your resolution plan. If caffeine speeds you up for a while, find something else that will take that place and is more healthy for you.

Step5 Above all, aim for things that are truly important to you, not what you think you ought to do or what others expect of you. Think about yourself and what you truly need to make a difference in your life. Be positive and make sure your goals are reachable so you don't set yourself up for disappointment.
