About Me

Hi, I'm Rene' and I love teaching Zumba classes. The reason is simple: Every class feels like a party! With a 20+ year history in science and education and serious fondness for dance, I love to jump, jive and wiggle all in the name of fitness.


As the mother of 4 young kids, including twins, and as someone living with the debilitating condition Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, hEDS, and a few of its comorbidities, I needed something to strengthen, motivate and energize me. Zumba, did just that! After my first class, I was hooked. I danced, shimmied and shook my way to not only loosing weight, but gaining strength and getting my vitality and love of life back as well.


As my enthusiasm for and love of fitness grew, so did my involvement in Zumba. In addition to  my original license, I am also AFFA and ACE certified and licensed in Zumbini, Aqua, Toning, Gold, Zumba Kids/Jr and most recently, STRONG by Zumba. I adore each and every one of my classes and participants. Whether wiggling with the wee ones in Zumbini, kickin' it in Kids, splashing in Aqua or grooving with Gold, it is always a fun time.


Zumba, inspires me and keeps myself and my family active. Zumba, has kept me strong. Zumba, has kept me mobile in the face of a disorder trying to take my body. Zumba, has changed my life for the better. Most importantly, Zumba makes me smile (the sweaxy doesn't hurt either)!


Come join me for a workout in disguise! Zumba Fitness, is for everyone---you don't have to know how to dance, just move your body and follow my lead. It's an incredible  workout, contagious energy and it's easy! I look forward to meeting you! Contact me for class times and locations.
