In October 2007 my life changed forever when my 11-year-old daughter lay semiconscious in the intensive care unit with severe ketoacidosis from undiagnosed Juvenile (insulin-dependent) diabetes. Not only did this event change our lives, but it also made me realize just how fragile life is and how important it is to be passionate about life and the things that you do. But the only way to be passionate is to truly enjoy what you do for a living.
Approximately half of all people who join health clubs quit within 3 months. Worse than that, an even greater percentage of people maintain a membership but do not use it. Witness the wild success of low-priced fitness clubs. These clubs thrive because they recruit more members than they can reasonably accommodate, fully expecting that many will not even use the facilities. And guess what—they don’t! Many people continue to pay their membership fees, hoping that they “might” start exercising in the future.
Wow is this fun! I enjoy working with the classes showing them some simple and fun dance moves to each of the Zumba songs. Some great instructors here in Palm Coast have asked me to sub for them. So when I am not on the road traveling for work I can fill in here and there. My next project is to find a location and offer a community Zumba class! The ZIN Network provides me with great music and new choreography. As I continue to increase my repertoire of songs I know this is going to be even more fun and challenging!
My kids are GONE!! My MIL drove them to MN yesterday...so it's just Travis, I and Cuji (our puppy) here in Arkansas for the next 11 days or so!!! I've not had a kid-less house for almost 12 years! This is gonna rock! The only bad part about it is that I have tons of work to do...my vacation will have to wait for when we go to Cancun next month!! I'm excited for that too!!
