Wow! That was inspiration for me to get back on here. If anyone is out there…say here! In the meantime, I’m trying to stay positive. After all, I think this business is needed in the community. I just need the community to show up and everything will be all good. We’re here for you. We just need you to show up.

How’s your weight? http://fundancefitness.com/blog/2012/06/27/hows-your-weight/ http://fundancefitness.com/blog/2012/06/27/hows-your-weight/#comments Wed, 27 Jun 2012 12:32:55 +0000 Administrator http://fundancefitness.com/blog/?p=83 Continue reading ]]> My weight is up. I’m working to get it back down. My weight loss goal is seven pounds within a month. I’ll let you know how it goes. I’m eating much better-fruits and vegetables for the most part. I’m active six days a week with Zumba, Bellydance, and other FunDance Fitness classes. Another summer goal is to tone my arms. The underarm fat has got to go! Keeping my focus on that goal is a little tougher, but I can do it. Pics to come soon. What are your summer health and fitness goals?

Last week was great! http://fundancefitness.com/blog/2012/03/05/last-week-was-great/ http://fundancefitness.com/blog/2012/03/05/last-week-was-great/#comments Mon, 05 Mar 2012 17:49:56 +0000 Administrator http://fundancefitness.com/blog/?p=59 Continue reading ]]> We had a great week last week. People showed up and danced. We are on our way. If you didn’t make it last week, it’s okay. Come this week. We’re here for you. We’re having an Open Mic this Friday from 10pm-1am, so if you have talent that you would like to share, let us know to put you in the line up. We want this to be our best Open Mic! We need you to participate, be audience members and bring your friends. Yesterday, we had an opportunity to do a Zumba Fitness demonstration that was well received. We’re looking forward to establishing working relationships with some of the people we met at the event. Here’s a deal for you. The first one to comment on this post will receive a five class bellydance punch card. If you’re a guy who isn’t interested in bellydance, we’ll let you designate a lady in your life to give it to. Ready! Set! Go!

How can we get you in class? http://fundancefitness.com/blog/2012/02/26/how-can-we-get-you-in-class/ http://fundancefitness.com/blog/2012/02/26/how-can-we-get-you-in-class/#comments Mon, 27 Feb 2012 03:12:10 +0000 Administrator http://fundancefitness.com/blog/?p=56 Continue reading ]]> We miss you! Come back to us. You need to get moving. I’m working on positivity. The optimist in me says you’re coming because that’s what you tell me. The realist in me says you can show me better than you can tell me. So, get real with yourself. I’m sure you know the health benefits of movement and the risk factors created from a sedentary lifestyle. I know you’re busy. You don’t like to workout. You get home and you can’t even think about leaving back out. You don’t have anyone to watch the kids. You didn’t eat that poorly today. You don’t see the results anyway.  You’re stressed out and just don’t want to be around anyone. Okay. I get it. Now what? You still need to get moving. Carve out some time to come take a class with us. It’s not like working out. We’re having fun. We’re dancing. We’re learning breathing techniques that can help deal with stress. We’re meeting new people. We’re laughing. We’re losing weight. So…tell me. When are you coming?
