Janice Vargas - Group X - Zumba
Certifications: Zumba, Zumba Gold, Zumba Kids & Aqua Zumba
About 10 years ago, I walked into my first Zumba class. I hid in the back, hoping the instructor wouldn’t see me. By the end of the class, I was hooked!
I loved it so much that when the opportunity arose, I became a Zumba Instructor!
I have now been licensed to teach Zumba since 2012! I have since added Zumba Gold, Zumba Kids, and Aqua Zumba to my resume!
Let’s just get one thing straight- I don’t really love exercising, who does, right? But I absolutely LOVE teaching Zumba classes! The reason is simple, I’ve never forgotten the fun I had in that first class, and that’s the feeling I want to share with everyone who takes my class! The goal is not to get all the steps perfect, it’s two things: sweat and smile!
Come join me, I guarantee you will have a blast! I look forward to seeing you in class!
