Hi I'm Julie...Thanks to my colleages at work for introducing me to Zumba. Katherine and Rosa told me one day...."Julie you have to try it"... I told them dancing wasn't my thing, love to try it but I have no coordination! They said once you do it you'll be hooked!! Well, July of 2009 --Martin and Dora showed up to my work and started dancing the hour away.... I couldn't follow, I was out of breath, out of shape...never did any type of exercise in my life...I was in so much pain the next day...I couldn't even walk, laughing even hurted! So then, I attended classes twice a week...then it became 5 classes a week...after that I did all the zumba I could in a week and sweating became an addiction.
At the time I was 29, I wanted to challenge myself to lose 10 pounds before my 30th birthday...even though I have tried every diet regimen out there...it never worked for me! My husband bought me every machine out there to help me and it just sat there to collect dust. So I said I'm going to learn Zumba and see if I can shed my pounds....long story short a year later....
I lost 30 pounds, lost 10 inches off my waist, became a zumba instructor, gained self confidence, gained a lot of new friends, and best of all this asian chick can shake her butt just like anyone else can!
This has been a life changing event for me and so far I'm enjoying everyday! I'm a blessed for my dedicated instructor team members of Studio X. I hope that you all can enjoy and relate to my life style changes...it made a difference in my life...I hope that we can make a change in yours!
P.S. this is suppose to be my biography, but it's my true life testimonial of my zumba career!
Here are some before and after pics.
