GET MOVING! March Madness Special!

Standard

Hello Friends!

Image

We are in the third month of 2014! How are you doing with your fitness goals? Are you still on track, or have the daily tasks of life taken over your exercise time?

It is never too late to get back on track! Make a point to set aside time for your personal well being. Exercise is a very important element of good health. Find an activity you enjoy and MAKE TIME to engage in that activity consistently. Whether it’s walking at the marina, going to the gym, swimming laps at a local pool, or taking your favorite fitness class, set aside the time and money to make it happen. You can invest in your health now or fill the pockets of the medical and pharmaceutical industries later.

As an incentive, I am offering a special for the month of March only:

  • MARCH MONTHLY PASS ONLY $45 (regularly $55)!!! That’s $5 per class and 20% off the regular price!
  • Bring a friend and their first class is HALF PRICE! That’s ONLY $4!

Don’t miss out! Take advantage of these deals and tell a friend!

See you soon! :)

 

 

Aside

Hi everyone! Yes, I still have classes at Destined 2 Dance every Monday (7:30 pm) and Wednesday (7:00 pm) evening. I have been neglecting my blog for a while, but that is all about to change. I will be posting here daily going forward and am about to launch my new fitness website that expands my professional health and wellness offerings beyond Zumba® Fitness.

Along with being a licensed Zumba® Fitness instructor, I am also a Personal Trainer certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) offering 1-on-1 and small group training, along with boot camp style group fitness classes.

So, stay tuned for more from me on nutrition, fitness, and healthy living.

Talk to you soon! :)

NOVEMBER is National Diabetes Month

Standard

74554_10201416468631396_103767038_nNovember is National Diabetes Awareness Month!

Having a parent with type 2 diabetes and seeing how debilitating the complications of the disease can be first hand has set me on a mission to make every effort to prevent developing the disease myself, and ignited a passion to make sure others are aware of the disease – and more specifically, its complications.

Moreover, as a health and wellness professional, I want to ensure people know what measures can be taken to reduce  risk of developing the disease or, if already diagnosed, to successfully manage it. I will be sharing info about diabetes – its various types, and complications. Please feel free to share with others.

Here are some quick facts.

Total prevalence of diabetes:

Total: 25.8 million children and adults in the United States—8.3% of the population—have diabetes.

Diagnosed: 18.8 million people

Undiagnosed: 7.0 million people

Prediabetes: 79 million people*

New Cases: 1.9 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed in people aged 20 years and older in 2010.

Zumba® Fitness is a mainstay for me that has served in my becoming established as a respected fitness professional. These last three years have been simply amazing and I am so happy I took the leap, despite my not being in “perfect” shape when I started. It has definitely been a journey and I have truly been blessed by the many new friendships, partnerships, and alliances I have established along the way.

As 2014 quickly approaches, I stand excited as I broaden my professional services to include personal training, involvement in major event planning, and bicycle advocacy. I am also forging a deeper alliance with the American Diabetes Association as my passion for raising awareness and educating people about this devastating chronic disease that affects millions waxes strong.

Zumbawithsharon.com will remain dedicated to my Zumba® Fitness activities. However, I will be launching a general fitness and nutrition site in 2014 that will be more comprehensive covering my nutrition education, personal training, boot camp, and cycling related activities. So check back often and look for the link to this new blog.

Thank you for taking a minute to check in with me. I’ll be posting again soon!
