Fitness began for me when I was a little girl. One Christmas Santa bought me the best present ever-- a radio with a cassette player. I would pack up my radio, my tapes, and my dance routine and take it to my friend's house across the street. I would teach her routine after routine. We would dance from sun up to sun down trying to get our routine just right. My friend, Demetria, was a such a great student. As a child, I was also involved in softball and basketball until high school. My love for music lead me to play in the marching band in high school. But my first official fitness class wasn't until my freshman year in college. I had to take a P.E. and aerobics it was. I LOVED IT!!! I loved it so much that I would go to my P.E. class in the morning and go again at night. It was there that I wanted to teach, but I was too scared. So I continued to take a zillion classes. When I graduated and return back to my small hometown my aerobics classes became a thing of the past. At home there was only one store and no gym. So I had to figure out a way to continue to exercise. I bought my first video tape----Keli Robert's Ultimate Step. Several video tapes and years later, we finally got a gym and I was ready to teach. And I have been teaching ever since. I really love teaching, designing choreography, and helping people in their quest to a healthier lifestyle. Fitness is a great creative outlet for me. And I hope to do it till I die.
