About Me

My name is Samantha and I am a 31 year old Zumba fanatic! With the help of Zumba I have lost 200 pounds from my highest weight. I stick with Zumba because it's a fun and easy way to get in my cardio and have a great time doing it. I am never happier than when the music gets pumping and everyone gets their sweat on!
Zumba is not only my favorite workout of all time but it is also my safe place.  No matter what happens at work I can get to Zumba class and leave it all on the dance floor.  I love the Zumba community and am grateful every day for the chance to share the Zumba love!
