The Journey to Becoming an Instructor

My next door neighbor was a water aerobics instructor and basically just asked me to take over when she moved. I was horrible! I recorded tapes from the radio like the Grease soundtrack. I had no choreography or thought behind my workouts. That was 23 years ago though, and here I am, 23 years later!

Get to know Andrea

If you could have a super power, what would it be? If I had a super power, it would be that of supreme convincibility. To get anyone to do whatever I ask. It would make getting my kids teeth brushed at night so much easier!

What is your guilty pleasure? My guilty pleasure... so many! Flo Rida. Also, really bad, "b" horror movies. American Horror story. Lindt Truffles. 

What do you like to do in your free time? In my free time, I like to read, educate myself, chill out outside with a cup of coffee, and teach my kids important things in life, like how to ride a bike, or to really look at the color of leaves, or how to best catch lady bugs. 

If you had one wish, what would it be? One wish would be that there would be no terminal illness. 

What is your favorite exercise? My favorite exercise... hmmmm... BodyCombat is my favorite class. I'm working on a handstand push-up and one day I'll do it! I love to lift shoulders, but I have a hard time picking just one exercise. 

If you had to choose one word to describe yourself, what would it be? Annoyergenic. (That's annoying energetic.)

If you were stranded on an island, who would you want to be stranded with and what 5 things would you want to have with you? 

  1. Dictionary

  3. An old encyclopedia set

  4. TRX Straps

  5. Food!!!!!
