|Meet Our Fusion Instructors
|I am married and a busy mother of two girls Taylor and
Taryn. I also work as a Childcare Food Program Monitor. I
always found myself on the roller coaster ride of dieting and
exercising. I finally got off the ride when I went to a Zumba
class with Kim about 4 years ago. I fell in love instantly with
the music and the dance moves. I finally got licensed in
November 2009 just to sub when Kim. But as soon as I
taught my first class I was hooked. I love to see the smiling
faces in the crowd and the great energy I receive while
teaching. Zumba has changed my life tremendously I look
and feel great.
|Erica has been teaching Zumba at Fusion since September
2009, and TurboKick since October 2010. She is also a
credentialed Math teacher, teaching online high school
classes for Horizon Charter Schools, as well as tutoring
Math up through Pre-Calculus. She enjoys teaching Math
but will be the first to admit that teaching Zumba and
TurboKick is a lot more fun! Erica lives in Elk Grove with
her husband, Reggie, and their two crazy boys, Anthony
(10) and Austin (6). She loves reading, scrapbooking,
stamping, crafts, summer vacation, and snowmobiling.
|My name is Darwin Mitchell been a personal trainer and
instructor for 10 years.
My passion for fitness goes back 30 plus years. First as a
professional dancer for 6 years then as a martial artist for 7
years, studying Taekwondo and Kenpo Karate. I have been
fitness training for about 17 years. At 56 years young I
practice what I preach. I am committed to the success of
everyone I train. I have had students lose weight, re-shape
the bodies and change their mental focus. I look forward to
assisting you on your quest to gain more strength, acquire
more energy or just lose a few unwanted pounds.
I believe a trainer should act as a catalyst to their clients,
finding what it takes to spark them to train. As a trainer one
should have excellent bedside manner with clients while
laying out realistic goals and providing ongoing
encouragement. Fitness is a way of life not just something
you do to get it out of the way.
