My success story

Nicole's Success Story

I started taking Zumba classes at Riverside Zumba Studio in April of 2010 just as a way to get out of the house. I instantly became hooked, but being self-conscious about my weight would stand in the back corner where I could not see myself in the mirror. Coming from a dance background and always having an interest in fitness since a teenager, I knew that one day I wanted to teach Zumba fitness. Before I could second-guess myself out of it, I signed up for the next training at the IDEA Fitness Convention in Los Angeles on August 4th, 2010. When R.I.P.P.E.D. came to the studio, it took everything to the next level. I started seeing my body tone up and change in amazing ways. It gave me a new confidence that I had never had and ventured away from my corner and stood right in front of the mirror with pride. Seeing these incredible results and feeling the empowering vibe of R.I.P.P.E.D. encouraged me to become a certified instructor on December 4th, 2010. Now I work as a full-time Certified Group Fitness Professional teaching Zumba Fitness, R.I.P.P.E.D, Zumbatomic, and Bootcamp. I am looking forward to all of the exciting and positive advancements in the fitness world. I also hope to make wonderful differences in people's lives and with various charity organizations.
