10 Years of Teaching Zumba

And what I learned from taking time off. 

By Cassie Brandi

This month marks 10 years of teaching Zumba! I’m so grateful for the friends on the cruise ship (who were professional dancers – hello!) who lovingly supported me by letting me practice on them!! My amazing classes over the years and the smiles on your faces have made it all worth it. I’ve been lucky to dance with so many people around the world. Music and dance are truly universal.

These past three months I had decided to take a break from teaching to see how it would affect my body and my mind. After 3 months of no dancing, here’s what I found. In the beginning it was a nice break for my body and my mind. I had been learning 1 new choreography a week or so for the last 10 years… so that’s a lot of choreo! After a few weeks I felt like I missed moving my hips, I became depressed, felt like I moved slower, my confidence went down, I felt less sexy and someone should’ve definitely called the fun police (yes it’s something I say) because I had missed the “party” we had each week.

I was wondering if that was it for me… maybe I just succumb to “this is how I feel now?” So I did something I hadn’t done in 3 months, I just put on a video and danced by my self in my office. I was surprised to find that after ONE song, my mood was better, I was reminded of how much I liked latin music, shaking my booty and the confidence dance gave me. That was all the proof I needed.

I could think of no better way than to celebrate my 10 year anniversary than dancing with you! I’ll be teaching a FREE Zumba class virtually in the next few weeks. Please feel free to join me for one song or for the whole class and see how it makes YOU feel. If you’d like to join, email us here and we’ll be sure to notify you with more details about the class.

4 Benefits of Virtual Training

Why many will continue training virtually after the pandemic is over.

By Cassie Brandi

1. Motivation/Accountability. Change out of those stretchy pants lately? I know the feeling. Having accountability to show up for a workout is huge in this time and it’s helpful to have friends to sweat “alongside” you while training. 

2. It’s convenient. No travel time to and from the gym means more time doing..well…anything else. 

3. Avoid injury. Having someone watch your back and offer modifications based on your body type is everything. I’ve spent years doing exercises incorrectly, aggravating my lower back and it’s empowering to know that you can go crush it and not wonder if you are doing it right. 

4. Reach your goals without guesswork. Do doctors learn how to diagnose from Instagram? I think not. So why do so many settle for an Instagram workout when you could have someone show you how to workout smarter instead of harder?

The First Step to Better Living

How getting a coach can transform your wellness journey.

By Jon Brandi

If you took some time to reflect upon it, are you getting the results you are looking to achieve in regards to the following?
  • losing weight
  • eating better
  • moving better
  • feeling better
  • building muscle
  • improving health markers

If not, have you considered coaching? After all, high performing executives, creatives, professional athletes and teams use coaching to help them get superior results.

At Brandi Fitness we do fitness differently. Sure we do events, classes and training sessions but the real special sauce of what we do is coaching, which has been the primary impetus in getting our clients sustainable results.

Personally, both Cassie and I have experienced how profoundly helpful coaching has been to growing our marriage and business.

Coaching is a forward-focused collaborative process of discovery which includes:

  • identifying and removing barriers to open new pathways of possibilities
  • a deeper sense of clarity on what to do next
  • built in accountability & encouragement to support continual progress

Coaching looks different for everybody and that is why a personalized approach can be so powerful.

We understand that life can be a juggling act which is why we specialize in a personalized holistic coaching approach (including lifestyle, activity and nutrition) to help those we work with live, move, and feel better. Throughout the process, we guide you to discovering & adopting solutions to make healthier living fit your lifestyle – not the other way around.

Recently we have expanded our offerings to help you get results that last.

With Brandi Fitness Training and Wellness Services you can:

  • live anywhere (online and in person coaching options)
  • have a VERY BUSY life and still make progress
  • keep your current gym membership, classes & routine or do training at home
  • train with us if you want to build skills and technique to optimize your results
  • live DIET FREE & continue enjoying the foods you like
  • keep your food preferences – vegan, vegetarian, etc.
