Heather Collup -I teach 11 Cardio Kickboxing weekly. I do your measurements. My students lose about 10-20 inches the first two weeks. We work our butts off in class and laugh a lot. We work with banana bags, focus mitts, weights, machines, circuit training and much more. I change class all the time so you don’t get bored, have muscle memory or plateau. I can help you reach your fitness goals.
I also teach Zumba. I am not a professional dancer by all means and you do not have to be either. Zumba is an extremely fun way to get in shape. Zumba is easy to follow and you burn a lot of calories. I look forward to seeing you in one of my classes. All ages and fitness levels welcome!
