Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Allow yourself to give it a try! If you love it, great! If not, let yourself try another class/ activity. Just keep moving!
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Most people who attend my ZUMBA classes are beginners. And EVERYONE makes mistakes with the moves. Let yourself loosen up and focus on having fun. Fitness need not be miserable. :)
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. Does the instructor make me feel comfortable? Am I having fun? That's it. If you're comfortable, you're having fun. If you're moving and having fun, you're getting your cardio. You'll know because you'll be "smilin' while you sweat." :)
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. #1 You. :) That sounds cheesy, but it's the truth. I work out harder and have way more fun with my students than anything I've tried before.
#2 It's FUN. It's an opportunity to let loose and dance, while taking care or yourself. What could be better?
#3 Ashland Yoga Studio. It's a great space. Instructors are warm and inviting. It offers me a variety of classes to expand my knowledge and to try something new. It's also away from the hustle and bustle and private, so you really get a chance to be in the moment, focusing on what you're doing. Love it!
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. What should I wear? What kind of shoes?
We suggest comfortable clothes that you can move in. For most people that means anything but jeans.
Footwear: We suggest supportive footwear because there is some twisting/bouncy movements. Ideally, you want to wear shoes with little tread that won't give you that "stuck to the floor" feeling. Plus, less tread on your shoes means less risk of tweaking out a knee or ankle.
If you're like me and love your running shoes: I use Slip-on Dancers. They're a stretchy band that slide over your shoe to cover the tread and make them "slippery". Plus, they come in cool patterns. :)
