    Turning The Page

    My life story is tough to categorize. The beginning of my story was a total tragedy, and everything in between has been such an adventure of love, opportunity, growth, and disappointments too. I'm turning the page and stepping out of  my Real Estate shoes and starting a new career in fitness which has been a huge part of my life for so long.  At this point in my life, I want to do something meaningful and give back to at risk children so I will be mentoring through the YMCA's mentoring program and teaching aerobics with music for kids and I'm crazy pumped about it. I'm high on life and the emptiness I felt as a young girl has been filled with the possibilities. Speaking of turning the page in my life. I will turn 42 on Sunday and someone asked me if I'm feeling some type a way about it ... I have to say I'm embracing it and I'm going to ROCK 42 like it was 22 ...
    Walk That Walk Money
    Got this from a place I call my own ... thought it was cute ...

    Aerobic workout for kids

    I'm creating a super fun aerobic workout routine for kids and I'm so pumped and feeling blessed to take part in helping the kiddos get and stay fit. Looking for some fun music ...

    Aerobic dancing can be a great way  for the kids to have fun, start their blood pumping and get  their bodies in shape.

    What Is Aerobic Dancing?

    The word aerobic means "with oxygen" but aerobics usually refers to any kind of activity that gets your heart pumping and your muscles using oxygen. Aerobic dancing involves any kind of exercise put to music  It's recommended that kids  get at least 20 minutes of good aerobic exercise three times a week, so aerobic dancing can be a fun way to stay in shape.

    Aerobic Dancing - What Makes A Good Workout?

    • Warm-up - We Start off moving to something slow for about 5-10 minutes which will prepare you for more vigorous activities. Starting an aerobic routine too quickly can lead to injuries 
    • High Impact - After warming up, your main aerobic routine should last about 20-30 minutes.
    • Cool Down - Spend the last 5-10 minutes of your aerobic dance routine cooling down and relaxing. This will give you a chance to stretch your muscles and let your heart rate slowly come down.
