Week #32

Another week has gone by and before we know it, it will be the end of 2010. Life goes by so quickly so you might as well enjoy the ride while it flies by, right? I hope that all of you are falling nicely into your routine schedules now that school has been in session for a couple of weeks. It is so important to find the time in your day to call your own so make sure that is top priority when it comes to scheduling! Your kids will be fine if you have leave so don't feel guilty, in fact they will notice that you are even a nicer parent when you return home due to those fantastic endorphins that we have all been blessed with! Our bodies our amazing and if you take care of your body, your body will take care of you!

Items of business - The Rec Center will be closed August 30th thru Sept. 6th. Classes start back up on the 7th. There will be a new schedule coming out but not until Sept. 13th. There will be some new changes and new additions so it will be great! Also - Rec Center attendees, Desert Palms is letting anyone that goes to the Rec Center come and enjoy the their gym facilities and all classes for just $10 for the week that it is closed! This is a great deal so take them up on it so you can still get your exercise in for the week. All you have to do is tell the front desk at Desert Palms that you are from the Rec Center and they will take care of you! We would love to see you all at the Zumba classes at Desert Palms next week!

Desert Palms members - there will be a new schedule coming out as well on the 13th of Sept. so get ready for some changes and new additions as well!

Zumba Gives Back - Our charity event is in the planning mode and I hope to have a date, time and place for you by next Wednesday. It is going to be fabulous! You will not want to miss out! We have instructors from all over Washington county that will be helping us out that evening! More info to come........

So team up with a friend or sister and get 2 for $22.50. Marti and I have them on us at all times and we can always ship them out as well!!

Next Zumba teacher Highlight - Christy Ellis

My Husband Dave, and I moved to St.George about 8 years ago, so he could be a real estate agent, (which I might add he is the best in St.George) ( okay , tied for best with Kerry’s husband , Joe Langston.) I worked in a salon as a hair stylist for 7 years, I also graduated from massage therapy school, I spent three years with Comedy Sportz doing improve comedy every weekend, I also spent time traveling around the world and the United States. But all of that life got put on hold when I had my three kids and decide to be a stay-at-home mom. It was a hard transition for me, to be “just a mom”, so when Zumba came into my life, I had something to call my own again. I have become very interested in the fitness world. Our bodies are so incredible, no matter what they look like. It is amazing what they will do for us, if we love them and take care of them. And we all know our bodies love zumba! Thank you all for letting me be a part of your Zumba lives! I absolutely love teaching. Be healthy – be happy - be kind – and Zumba!

You can catch her high energetic personality on Tuesdays at the Rec Center at 5:30pm!!

Week #32 Challenge - weights!

Who is afraid of weights? You see those dumb bells and you just walk on buy because you are scared of them. You need to change your mind set! You need to fall in love with weights! They are so good for you! You need to build muscle to lose the fat. That's it, lift some weights on a regular basis and you will see changes! I promise. So along with your push-ups, squats and now weights you will have a great workout that will help you speed up your metabolism and lose weight.

Speaking of weights - I am now in the Saturday rotation at Desert Palms for Strength training and Spin. I will be teaching the 8:15am strength class follow right after a hour spin class this Saturday. If you would like to try it out please come. If you want to do strength and then catch Zumba right after, that will be just as good!

Have a wonderful week everyone and remember how great you are each day!
