About Me

Aloha...kumusta kayo amin!! I'm Ernest and I'd like to tell you my road to being a Zumba instructor.

I've seen the commercials for Zumba on tv. It looked like a lot of fun, but I never had the time to try it. In January 2011, my sister-in-law brought me to my first Zumba class when I was home on Maui for vacation (much mahalos, Cat!). I attended Tina Schor's class in the evening. I loved it. I was approached by her after the class and her and her other instructors thought I had been doing Zumba for a while. I was hooked!

When I returned to Portland, I made it a point to see when Zumba was offered at my local 24-Hour Fitness. I started attending the classes since and met great instructors...Wendy, Maki, Leina, Neylana, and Julio. Since attending their classes, I've lost inches around my waist and have felt much better about myself. These awesome instructors inspired me to become an instructor myself.

Working out has never been the same for me since doing Zumba. I've always loved dancing. The dancing and routines are much more fun than doing 30-40 minutes on the treadmill or elliptical machine. I really encourage anyone to try it. It's like they say...it's more of a party than a workout.

Special thank yous go out to Tina, Maki, and Julio for their encouragement and support through my process on becoming an instructor. I hope you'll all be able to help me be the best instructor I can be. Thanks also to Grace Espiritu Photography for the picture. You rock!

Check out my class schedule or click "Contact Instructor" to send me an e-mail and I'll get in touch with you about finding a class. Just move your body and follow my lead. It's easy! Come try it, I guarantee you will have a blast! I look forward to meeting you!
