Zumba Class During LDS Priesthood Session

Everyone!  I have missed you all so much!  Graduate school is amazing and I have been learning so much.  But I'm in such a need to teach a Zumba class!  So Karen and I are teaming up to host a GNO (Girl's Night Out) Zumba class during the Priesthood session of LDS General Conference.

Saturday, October 6th at 6PM
My Smart World Preschool
40 South 100 East
Lindon, UT 84042

Greatest things about this location:  There is a playground that is connected to the dance room so the kids can come and play outside while we dance.  Don't worry, it's totally enclosed and safe. (note, any kids who want to participate in class can in the back and only if they've paid for a ticket).  Another great thing is that this dance room is big and has nice mirrors, and even a drinking fountain in the room!

Buy your tickets online for easy convenience.  Tickets will also be sold at the door.

If you bought a pass this summer, you can use that too, just shoot me an e-mail if you want to use it.  Please note that I can't allow more than one person per pass for this event.  Here's a list of those of you who have valid passes.  If your name isn't here it means it was expired when I stopped teaching at Sweets.

Chelsey K.
Jackie Cl.
Rachel Sea.
Debbie L.
E. Ruiz
Marsha M.
Jackie Cr.
Shaun H.
Loretta D.

I really hope I see you there!  Share it with everyone and invite as many friends as possible.  Buy online by clicking on this link.  Tickets are non-refundable but they can be transferred.

Conference Weekend Zumba

Sunday, March 11, 2012


The weather is beginning to warm up. If running/jogging is something you're considering doing, here's my "3-S's" advice before you get started:

Support: Be sure you are wearing the right bra so you have the best support. If you're not supported, your back will ache and you'll likely give up sooner than you would if you had the proper support. (If you're an unlucky 'well endowed' woman like myself, I recommend Enell Sports Bras).

Shoes: Invest in a good pair of running shoes. Go to the running store and get measured for the best fit. Generally, you're going to pay more for a good pair of running shoes.

Safety: Please do not run alone in the dark or in secluded places. Don't believe that "it won't happen to me". Find a running buddy, try to run when there is still light outside, or stay on well-lit busy main streets. If you must listen to music in your earphones, please don't play it loudly or better yet, just use one earphone and leave the other out. Wear reflectors when it's darker and be sure that your spouse or someone knows exactly where you're planning to run-just in case.

Running is my first passion... even falls before Zumba believe it or not. I love it. Running allows me to clear my mind of things/stress/etc. It's me and the pavement. I go on long runs on Saturday mornings in the Provo/Orem area so if you're ever interested in joining me, let me know! Would love the company. And I'm not interested in speed-rather enjoying the weather, company, and nature. :)

Zumba Toning sticks

I'm going to be placing an order so that we can get our sticks before the classes start. I'm anticipating to start the class on Wednesday, September 14th. If you know you want to participate in Zumba Toning and want the sticks I will need your money by the end of next week.

There are 2 options for them:
1lb Toning sticks $20/pair

2.5lb Toning Sticks $25/pair
DUE September 1st (Thursday in class)

Again, let me know if you're interested. You're welcome to purchase your own pair of weights-but remember they're not as fun and you can't shake them. Be sure they're no more than 2.5 lbs.

long time no read

Hi everyone,

Zumba at Sweet's has been great this year. Fall is coming up and that also means some changes. First of all, I will be adding Zumba Toning to the classes at Sweet's. It is a great twist on weight training because it incorporates both Zumba and light-weight toning. I'm excited to offer this variety.

Another exciting addition will be Zumbatomic. This is a class that is specially designed for kids ages 4-12. It is a fun way to help little ones stay active and introduce them to dance, new rhythms, and teamwork and socializing. I am finalizing dates for this one so stay tuned.

In the meantime, I'd like your feedback on the schedule for the fall. Please take the survey on the right. The proposition is this:

Zumba Toning on Mondays and Wednesday
Zumba (regular cardio class) on Tuesdays and Thursdays

The major change I'd like to get your feedback on is to change the class time to 8:30PM instead of 9:00PM. Please vote to your right so I can finalize the schedule.

Payment Options

Hi Everyone,

I have a PayPal account created if you're interested in purchasing punch cards and clothing with a debit/credit card. Feel free to ask me about this in class if you're interested.

Zumba in 2011!!!

Ready for 2011?

Remember to make realistic goals/resolutions this year. One of those resolutions could be to be healthier and to exercise regularly. Boy have I got the solution for you. Zumba Fitness is a great and FUN way to get in shape and to maintain health. Zumba Fitness is FUN, and it feels like a party. Come to Sweet's in Provo and see for yourself. I promise you will sweat, have fun, and make new friends. Bring a friend with you so that you're more committed.

To help accommodate more people, I have decided to add another weeknight to our regular schedule. We will now have Zumba on Monday nights too. It's also late at 9PM so that we can still fulfill our family commitments but adding another night means MORE FUN! :)

Also note that we will no longer hold a regular Saturday morning class. I will still be doing 2 Saturday morning classes per month for FREE so that you can bring your friends and share the Zumba LOVE with them too.

See the column to the right and check out our specials! For a limited time you can get classes as low as $1.50 per class. You do not want to miss out on these low prices-they are going to increase in February.

Hope to see you in class! :)
