"I finally decided
to retire after 10 years of dancing. I had a few good
years left in me physically but mentally I was done.
My body was used to a lot of exercise. After quitting
I found it very difficult to keep my figure. I dieted
and tried different various forms of exercise. Aerobic
classes, weight training, even running didn’t
seem to be that effective. Not only was it not working
to keep me fit but these were not exercises that I enjoyed.
I finally came to the conclusion that I needed to try
a training routine similar to the one that I had while
I was dancing. I have structured a fitness routine using
the moves that resemble the ones I had used in my performances.
I have been using this routine for only a short while
and can already see my body transforming back to the
toned and lean condition that is was in while I was
a dancer. It seems the perfect combination of using
your own strength to hold your body weight up (pole
moves), cardio (dancing), and strength and stretching
(floor moves) is what keeps my body in the best shape.
If this works for me, I figure it will work for most
people. This is why I decided to teach and help other
women achieve their fitness goals."
