It is so lovely to meet our positive and inspiring students, and this month I got to hear from Jasmine Rosario and al about personal journey of transformation through Zumba® and Z Club NY. Jasmine finds sources of inspiration from her family, her boyfriend, and many of the instructors at Z Club NY. She says, “Zumba® and Z Club NY have supported me by giving me the resources to staying healthy, the support to keep going and not give up and challenging me to push myself further.”… – by Yali Szulanski for Z Club NY.
What inspires you to succeed in class and in your life?
As far as people who inspire me, my family, my boyfriend and many of the instructors at Z Club NY are constant sources of support and love. Overall, what inspires me to succeed is happiness, enjoyment, peace of mind, fulfillment and continuing to stay healthy so I can fulfill all my goals.
What have you learned about yourself through taking classes at Z Club NY?
Truthfully, that I have the energy and stamina to work out the way I do. Sometimes, I’m so tired, achy or feeling really lazy but as soon as that music comes on and I start to move, all of a sudden I know I can push through and get it done!
How did you come across Z Club NY and Zumba in general? What is your favorite part about Z Club NY?
I love dancing and have been doing it for a long time. Even when I travel, I workout. I have taken some really good Zumba® classes in my travels and I figured why not just do it all the time at home, not just when I am away. I just happen to be online looking for zumba classes in the area when I found Z Club NY a few years ago. I booked a trial class, had Edmee for the first time and the rest is HISTORY!
What is something unique about yourself that you’d like to share?
I really never thought about whether there was something unique about myself. I have some quirky tastes but then again so does everyone. All I can say is that I am who I am and that’s the way I like it!
