I am a 24 year old group fitness addict who is trying to branch out into other fitness activities like 5k's and mud runs (I'm registered for a few of both in the coming months...eek!). I am an AFAA certified group fitness instructor also licensed in Zumba®, Zumba Toning®, Aqua Zumba®, Zumbatomic®, Flirty Girl Fitness Booty Beat, and hopefully soon Pound Fitness (yes, it's a mouthful but I didn't want to leave anyone out!). I started teaching group fitness classes a little over a year ago because I wanted the accountability of having to go work out as I started graduate school (I liked the motivation that if I don't drag my butt to the gym, then no one gets a workout!). As graduate school wears on and gets increasingly stressful and busy, I don't have the time to commit to all of my classes. However, I am hoping that the blog-o-sphere and SweatPink community can help to take that place. Sometimes it takes other people knowing you missed a workout to make you suck it up and make the time. At least for me.
This is me post a fabulous team taught 90 minute Zumba class (we did crazy hair...I don't always rock the sweat band and side ponytail!)
I am really excited for this blogging adventure as I work out the balance of being both a serious healthy liver and a serious academic (hence the blog name!).
