Meet your Instructors


Megan

Monday: Cardio Kick Boxing (returning Fall 2020)
Tuesday: Pound
 
I fell back into fitness nine years ago after welcoming twins. On a whim I took a group exercise class and loved it. I decided to take it a step further and become a certified Group Exercise Instructor, learning formats from R.I.P.P.E.D to Tabata to POUND. I loved it so much, I decided to pursue Wellness as a career. I graduated from Oakland Community College with a degree in Exercise Science and I’m currently pursuing my Bachelor’s from Oakland University in Wellness, Health Promotion and Injury Prevention.
 
In addition to teaching fitness classes at SLPR, I’m also a Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist, as well as a Certified Health Coach at Genesys Athletic Club. I believe that in order to lead a fit lifestyle one has to eat healthy and well balanced, focus of making exercise fun and meaningful and practice Wellness in all areas of life.

Tuesday: 30 Minute Abs
Wednesday: Buns&Guns
 
It was over ten years ago when I discovered Pilates and every time I do it I’m reminded why I love it! It’s the workout my body really responds to. It makes me stronger and keeps my spine aligned. Pilates will improve posture and flexibility while strengthening the core. In my Tuesday and Wednesday classes we use an array of props to add variety to the workout that will target specific muscle groups. Thursday we use the stability ball and weights to focus on balance, core strength, and the muscles of the back.
 
While at Genesys Athletic Club, I taught a Pilates workshop for golfers and was inspired by how those exercises, aimed at the mechanics of a golf swing, would have benefits for all athletes. Whether my clients swing a club, a bat, a racket or row a kayak and ride a bike, Pilates provides range of motion for any activity you do.
 
I’m certified to teach Pilates, Pilates for Injuries & Special Populations, and Barre Pilates.

Wednesday: Pilates with Props
 
What would my life have been without Pilates? That I will never know, but I am so glad it is part of my life Here’s why….
 
It has so many benefits – the mind/body connection, its focus on form with function, and body alignment to name a few. I also appreciate how it recruits the deepest core muscles which helps clients do all of their favorite activities more effortlessly. Another added benefit is that I get to incorporate my ballet background and combine Pilates with certain ballet moves to challenge my students.
 
I have taught Pilates at the college level, along with clients ranging from their teens to their seventies. I use the Pilates props to bring more awareness of how to properly execute moves or to increase the challenge. I use different types of musical genres and routines to keep the class fresh, challenging, and motivating. Please join me and see what happens when you try Pilates on your body.

Diane

Monday: Zumba and Thursday: STRONG by Zumba
 
I attended my first Zumba class in 2012 and fell in love! Grooving to the beats of salsa, flamingo, and merengue music feels more like a dance party than a work out which is exactly what makes Zumba so fun.
The high energy classes are set to upbeat music and feature choreographed dance numbers. You don’t need to be a dancer to do Zumba! Just follow my lead and have a great time.
 
I absolutely love teaching Zumba classes. The reason is simple: Every class feels like a party! I am currently licensed to teach Zumba, Zumba Toning, Strong by Zumba, Zumba Kids AND Zumba Kids, Jr.
 
Come join me. I guarantee you will have a blast! “Ditch the Work Out, Join the Party”

Romina

Tuesday and Thursday: Zumba
 
I am from a small town one hour from Mexico City. I went to college planning to work in television and ended up working in corporate communications where I met my husband. In 2008 we moved to the U.S. and our family now lives in Fenton.
 
I grew up dancing for fun, tradition, and culture. Everyone in Mexico dances and people in my hometown are often called ‘salseros’ because we love to dance salsa, my favorite rhythm.
 
I’ve practiced Zumba since 2000 when it started to become popular in Mexico. When I realized that Zumba was known in Michigan I became an instructor and started teaching basic Zumba in 2011.
 
Teaching Zumba has been an amazing way to build a community of friends, keep fit, and to make me feel at home while also sharing part of my cultured with everyone that attends my classes. I’m licensed to teach Zumba, Zumba Gold, Zumba Toning, Strong by Zumba, Zumba Kids, Aqua Zumba, TRX and Les Mills Grit.

Tom

 
I’ve been teaching yoga in the Fenton area for over 20 years. I am certified in multiple styles and offer an eclectic approach to Hatha yoga for my students. As a teacher trainer for Yoga Ed I help others learn how to lead elementary and teen yoga classes.
 
I also serve as Mindfulness Program Manager at the Crim Fitness Foundation and lead both teacher training and elementary classroom lessons.
 
My personal studies have included mindfulness techniques with both Thich Nhat Hanh and Jon Kabat-Zinn. My classes reflect this and stress the importance of the breath, body awareness and correct alignment.
