Sheree began her dance-fitness journey late in 2009 as a participant. She immediately knew this was something she wanted to do. She began with her Zumba certification and in 2011 after growing small classes to large classes at local gyms she took it out on her own and Shake It Off was born. A former 2x All-American Softball Player, High School Spanish Teacher and a Wife and Mom, Sheree is up for any challenge. She enjoys meeting new people, keeping the workouts fresh, fun and challenging! “My goal at “Shake” is to challenge your mind and your body and ALWAYS bring you a highly energetic workout! It’s also a goal of mine to be able to offer something for everyone in the field of dance-fitness. From different instructor’s styles and personalities, to unique class-offerings, music and routines.” Each class is designed to be different so you won’t get bored but always feel like you’re at a party with a group of friends! I believe I’ve brought together an amazing team who is not just there because they love what they do but they are incredible human beings who have YOU at heart!
LINDA (Zumba, Zumba Toning Instructor)
Zumba has become Linda’s new passion. As a child, teenager and young adult she was overweight. At certain times in life, according to doctor’s charts, she was considered obese. Like many, she tried various diets and exercise regimes, but nothing ever stuck. It all got old, boring and unrealistic to maintain as a lifestyle. Zumba never gets old for her, it is NEVER boring and certainly fits into a healthy lifestyle. For Linda, Zumba is “exercise in disguise”. Roughly four years ago, with the help of Zumba and a popular user-friendly weight loss program, she was finally able to settle into a body size that felt comfortable. She passionately wants to share her experience with others. It is possible to burn calories and build muscle without it feeling like a dry ‘workout’. Linda is married and Mom of two.
Leah fell in love with Zumba four + years ago and started taking classes. It quickly became her “go to” form of exercise. She loved that it was for every “body” and it was SO fun! She was encouraged to become an instructor by her peers. Her spunky attitude and love for Zumba seemed a perfect fit. She enjoys seeing people dance and have fun and challenge themselves! Leah really loves seeing their faces when they know they’ve just gotten a great workout and had a ton fun doing it! ”My goal as an instructor is to show people that exercise can be fun. And you don’t have to be a professional dancer to do Zumba! it doesnt have to be perfect, its about moving, being silly and having fun! She combines moderate and high-impact routines for a highly energizing workout.”I love ALL genres of music! You will find a little bit of everything in my classes.” Leah is married (10 years) and has 3 boys…Hayden (10) Byron (6) and Landon who turns 2 in April!
Jen has been dancing since she learned to walk and has been in love with it ever since. She has been trained in ballet, tap, and jazz but left all of those behind for hip hop when she was in the eighth grade and Cheer in Highschool as well as College. It wasn’t until College that she really became passionate about fitness and took her first Zumba class. It only took one Zumba class for Jen to know it was perfect for her. Zumba combines her love of dance and passion for health and fitness all into one class! Jen’s classes are high-impact with Reggaeton being one of her favorite genre’s. “I really want people to just have fun in my classes and let go of any insecurities. Zumba class is where we can let go and find our own rhythms.” Jen is married ( 1.5 years) with no kids but an amazing puppy!
