How did you get started in health and fitness?
Corey spent 17 years in the salon industry helping people look and feel good on the outside, as time went by, his focus began to shift more to physical health and wellness. He started his fitness journey shortly after finishing nursing school when he realized physical movement helped him to find balance and reduce the added stress from work and school. After making the decision to live a healthier lifestyle, he searched for the perfect exercise format that would successfully lead him to reaching his fitness goals and that turned out to be group exercise classes. He chose group exercise as his motivation because it allowed him to be surround by others who shared common goals with their physical fitness, which inspired him allowed him to motivate and inspire others who needed inspiration too. In 2014, Corey earned his certification in Zumba and Zumba Step and has been instructing group exercise classes ever since.
What is your favorite class to teach?
Zumba is his favorite class to teach. He uses these high energy fun classes as a stress outlet to avoid choosing the unhealthier one and he hopes his students will do the same. Corey looks forward to getting involved in other group exercise formats and trying everything he can get into! He's thankful for the opportunity to work closely with such amazing, motivated, and uplifting people.
What do you want every person to get out of your class?
Corey's belief is that everyone can benefit from a little praise, motivation, and uplifting words from everyone we surround ourselves with, as well as someone to help hold us to be accountable to work hard to reach the personal goals we set for ourselves.
