Hello, my name is Jackelyn Berruz and I truly enjoy sharing my love of Zumba and “Getting lost in the music” others. I have struggled with my weight as long as I can remember. I have tried almost every diet around. The outcome was always the same, when I did lose weight, it would end up coming back and sometimes with extra pounds. In late 2009 I gave birth to my 3rd child and found myself heavier than ever. I joined a local gym and well, I did my best to go as often as I could. One day I saw that there was a line outside of the group exercise room and decided to try out whatever class was happening. It was a Zumba class and it was so much fun! I was sore, but a good sore and in places that I had never been sore before. This was something that I could actually do! Going to go dance my little heart out with a group of strangers was my little escape and I loved it!

In 2011 I was diagnosed with being at risk for diabetes. I was still overweight and needed to get serious about my weight loss so I decided to get licensed as a Zumba instructor. I believe it was the best decision that I could have made. Now I am able to share my passion for dance and assist others in having a great time while getting fit! Today, I am MUCH healthier then before! My sugar levels stay within a healthy range. I still have more weight to lose and more to learn about nutrition but I am continuing on my quest to live a healthier lifestyle. Zumba Fitness has not only helped me lose weight but it has helped me keep the weight from coming back! Join me for one of my Zumba Fitness classes and we can have fun while getting fit together!
