*Note: In traditional classes, there is some twisting, pounding, jumping, balancing, and bending of the knees that is involved. The Instructor will be tailoring classes to meet the needs of registered students but not all moves can be modified to eliminate the above mentioned motions. Each student should take precautionary measures to perform only the moves they are able and comfortable performing without the infliction of pain or further injury. It is strongly recommended that Zumba sneakers be purchased for these classes due to the level of support they provide and the absence of traditional treading which makes the twists and turns easier and lifts pressure commonly placed on the ankles during Zumba classes (zumba.com).

LIFEIS

Biggest Winner Round One

My name is Erica Steele and I am the winner of the first biggest loser challenge. I lost 42 pounds in the 15 week challenge. I feel amazing and am more confident than ever. It is a gratifying feeling to get back into my “skinny jeans” and to not dread going clothes shopping. I’m excited to keep going and to stick to my new healthy life style with the love and support from my husband taking this journey with me.
I never thought exercising was fun till Zumba came into my life. I was excited when Joscelynn introduced the biggest loser challenge as it was a way to give me motivation and really make me think about my life style. I give many thanks and gratitude for all the love and support from my Zumba family and especially to the best Zumba instructor Joscelynn who gave me inspiration and of course a big hug at the scale every week. I also want to thank my Zumba partner, my mom Amy, who was right there with me every week! She, along with all the other ladies, did an amazing job! So if you are thinking of doing the biggest loser challenge next time I say go for it! It was a great experience and fun at the same time.

Personal Training In WNY Just Got Hotter

I have had such a passion with Zumba Fitness for almost 3 years now. I have been growing and getting inspired throughout these years continuing to grow my Fitness Profession.

Let me tell you how Zumba Toning has lead me to Personal Training. Muscle strength and training are a combination of cardiorespiratory fitness, flexibility, and our appropriate body composition. I teach this fun and very effective muscular fitness class two times a week. Safety and form are my main body components I focus on to properly train while at work on each individual client.

I just met up with a client who has been with me for over 2 years now. Lost lots of weight with Zumba and eating healthy with weight watchers. She now wants to begin Toning asking me what the benefits are. I tell her so many benefits than just to tone. When working her muscles she will increase her work capacity even more. Not just working out but activities of daily living as well. Muscle strength and endurance will also increase her bone density, where as if someone is leading an inactive or sedentary lifestyle bone density is in fact depleted. As well as the benefits of an increased strength of connective tissue with the decreased risk of injuries to your body. With myself being almost 3 weeks postpartum pregnant I can already feel the benefits from returning back to exercise and being deconditioned this training I notice that alone motor performance is boosted with my trainings. Really overall feelings of self-confidence and well being enhance our overall the quality of life.

What is muscular strength though you want to ask me? When working during a toning session either a group class or a required one on one training session maximum force of a muscle or muscle group can generate at one time. When I work with my clients normally we perform two to four sets for each major muscle groups. These sets may be of the same exercise or from different exercises affecting the same muscle group. My average client will perform 3 sets of 12. When taking one of my Zumba Toning class you will be able to identify this pattern. My goal as your fitness trainer is to condition the major muscle groups, which is our prime objection to develop total body strength and endurance. What most clients don’t realize is that muscle imbalance occurs and risk of injury increases if only a few muscles groups are trained.

As your Personal Trainer, it is my duty to continuously and diligently work on your fitness profile to train you up to lead the possible and ultimate Zest for YOUR Life.

Take your free personal self-assessment with me now ($120 value) @ Self assessment is free at http://www.willusowit.com/self-assessment-quiz

Zumba Toning classes are just $5.00 and are held at two convenient locations please see class schedule. What makes us so special we have no membership fees, no gym fees, and no contracts at all. Lastly there are no secrets and no judgments here each individual personal training session is private and confidential now only $30.00/per hour or save and pre-purchase 4 sessions with me for just $100.00 ($20 savings). Now I know for a fact that gyms will charge you double that as well as membership fees, contract fees, ect. Ask me about group rates as well by emailing me @ contact@willusowit.com

Dear Jocie, With Love

February 23, 2013

Your Honor,

Today I write on behalf of Jocelyn Elberson’s Beautiful  Life.  A Beautiful, Caring, Selfless Friend to our Family, a Huge part of our family, a Wonderful Daughter, and Very Proud Sister, Granddaughter and Fun Employee. Jocelyn was so Loving of all her Family and Friends no one less than the next.  Even being a life changer to complete strangers to those in contact with Jocie!  Not an average life of your normal male or females we are approached with on our everyday walk here on this earth.  Jocie was our special soul an angel walking this earth if you will.   Despite all the hard times she endured she took them as milestones, one in which whom-ever crossed her path she reassured that was a challenge and that she overcame and she conquered happy.  The impact Jocelyn Elberson made on all of us will not grow weary she is so missed and we were all so Blessed to be a part of her life as well!

Jocelyn had a smile that lit up any room.  You know when you are sitting in a room and when a person enters the room you can feel their presence either one with bad statute or one who has totally good intentions.  Jocelyn was that of the later she really impacted all our lives with her loving, caring, selfless ways.  I know for certain I am speaking on behalf of all those people Jocie came in contact with on a moment to moment basis.

Ms. Elberson not just had a passion to light people’s lives up but she had a way with our children as well.  A Ministry she held deep in her heart.  When parents would have their children Jocie would flock to them with her loving arms and tender heart.  She cared so much about children.  I can just see her smile now.  We now have 3 kiddos and Jocie was there from the birth of our first two.  When I tell you I am crushed she is not here to see the birth of my last child really breaks my heart.  I know for certain Jocie is watching down on us now and she is now an angel with all our kiddos, but her not being here is a missing link to our family.  We miss her so so much!

Jocelyn cared about her family so much they were everything to her I would enjoy hearing stories of her gatherings in her family.  She has a nephew and now a new one who was on the way and again she could not wait to meet him and it really hurts that she was not here to be there in fact she had her plane ticket and everything to go to her sisters.

The day we sat next to her in church was a day I will never forget.  With my baby belly and other two children that adored Jocie so much I mean her being a Huge part of our Family is an understatement, she is a huge stamp on our hearts.  The kids were being dismissed to go to Sunday school and as I was getting up with this Big Smile on her face she grabbed my children’s hands and said you sit down I got this!  That was the last time we saw Jocelyn.

I will never forget all the love Jocie held I want to be even half filled with the love she poured out onto others.  I just don’t think it’s very fair with the challenges we are given in our lives one person who continues to make the wrong decisions has the right to take the life of someone so young and so innocent and Jocie’s future hopes and dreams stolen.  Your Honor this really bogs my mind how this criminal still has the ability to hurt people with his disgusting, very bad (I can’t even find the words), absolute poor decisions.  While someone who cared so much about her life and the life of others so much…Jocelyn is now taken from us?  I am forever grateful and thankful to be Blessed to have shared such precious time with Jocelyn Elberson.  I know for certain that Jocie is now safe and I pray that on behalf of Jocie and her Family that the right decision is made in honor of Jocelyn Elberson and other victims as well that are just ripped of this precious life due of complete selfishness.  Your Honor, I pray justice be served.

Sincerely Yours,

Zumba Instructors Making a Huge Difference in Local Communities

Buffalo — May 5, 2013 — Sow it Now Fitness holds our local talented Licensed Zumba® Fitness Instructors Melissa Heldwein, Joscelynn Baio, Sara Marrero, and Jenna McAdoo who currently offer Zumba® Fitness Dance classes at two convenient locations in the Tonawandas. The Instructors offer Zumba® Dance Fitness Monday thru Saturday New Covenant 345 McConkey Drive, Buffalo, New York 14223 and at Payne Ave. Christian Church (PACC), 1451 Payne Ave., North Tonawanda, New York 14120. We are now excited to offer expansion of our Zumba® Fitness Classes to reach out to all our communities throughout all of WNY.
All Zumba Instructor’s classes are just $5.00 each for drop-ins at all locations. They are thrilled to be offering classes at such an exceptional rate. “We did our research and no one else offers these exceptional classes at this incredible price unless in fact committed to a gym contract with a monthly membership fee.”
A portion of our proceeds from all classes largely benefits our Communities, New Convenant Church and Payne Avenue Christian Church both are non-for profit and we are certainly continually looking to expand our market with our gifts and talents.
We are most certainly on a “Zumba®” mission reaching out to our community helping others reach their desired zest for life one person at a time. I know for certain this is our greatest passion that we all share together. In addition, last year our classes helped raise over $1600 in donations for New Covenant, which not only reaches out locally but to many missions across the world. New Covenant reaches places as far as Cuba as well as those who are locally familiar with our local community Sheridan Parkside right here in Buffalo, N.Y. This is a huge ministry that is planted for New Covenant. This year 2013 we will be focusing largely to commit to helping Come Alive World, WNY. www.comealiveworld.org. Payne Avenue Christian Church in the same way, last year we are thrilled to offer support of over $1,100 in donations that we reported in 2012. We are hoping to triple these numbers together in 2013.
Today, Our Talented Zumba® Fitness Instructor Melissa Heldwein holds her passion to help and teach Zumba® Fitness to people of special needs, with their families, as well as seniors. Heldwein is honored and blessed to offer such programs now.

Ensure school districts have required physical education classes and healthy lunch programs.
Support implementing a fitness index to monitor dietary and fitness goals for communities.

Presidential Election November 2012–Journey or Destination? You choose..

Where do I begin…good times, bad times, happy times, sad times!

Each and every person in my Life I could tell you something special about you and some way you have changed or affected my life…I do not take relationships lightly I never have and never will..they are very important to me..so if you are not in this specific blog it’s not because you are not a part of my life’s it’s just that I have way toooo much to write about you! LOL j/k The truth is you will definately come up sometime or another and I love you to pieces!

1994, ShopRite cashier that was a fun job working with a lot of people..In fact, I was offered tons of jobs and given business cards every week to come and work for many people that became regulars at my checkout line..Here I am 17 years old and many business opportunities and none ever felt meant to be. Until, one day the store manager approached me and told me he has been seeing my growth with the company and found a perfect match to promote me to the pharmacy. I was all about that! Excitedly, I accepted! Meeting a new department meant meeting a new knowledge not knowing what God truly had paved for my future. Then there is Jennifer Hendley, Owner of http://ukhaircompany.com/ Jennifer taught me everything there is to know to run a pharmacy and to run it smoothly! Not to mention, 17 years now…holy crap 17 years!! Jen, the specialist in chemistry is still the specialist with my hair today…She is the BEST!! I will travel the 500 miles to her anytime!

1997, January 24 I took pride in the fact to land the best (pharmacy technician) job any one could ever ask for and I worked for the most amazing boss, Eli Korn…He taught me for over 10 years about work ethic and how important it is to bust our butt to earn everything we want to accomplish in life and continue to do so! That was the best job in the world and the ultimate crew to work with ever! This experience gave me the drive obtain my pharmacy technician certification through Columbia Southern University. I am so grateful for Eli and for who I am today because of Poet’s Square Pharmacy!

2002, I met the most amazing man Peter Baio my husband to be that I knew that truth when fate happened in our lives and struck us both with love of the garter and bouquet at our late best friend’s wedding..Yes we both caught it! True story! No one can never tell me God does not know what he is doing! EVER!!

2003, I was very intrigued by stories one of my favorite Poet’s pharmacy customers, proactive American, dear friend, and mentor.  Peter Caram visited every day with the most amazing stories of his work with the Port Authority Police as an Officer during the 1993 bombing in the World Trade Center. In fact I highly recommend you read Caram’s eye opening book about the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing:http://www.amazon.com/1993-World-Trade-Center-Bombing/dp/185756586X

Caram’s writings was thought out and written immediately following the 1993 World Trade Bombing and foresaw 9-11-01 to happen in fact the entire book was published Oct. 2001. Folks please understand the pattern here our children’s lives and families lives depend on it!

Notice the flag of AL QAEDA , flying over the WHITE HOUSE , the same Al Qaeda flag that flew over the Egyptian Embassy and Libyan Consulate less than two weeks earlier. We ask you, are these moderate Muslims crazy… or just pushing their “civilization jihad?”

June 2003, I graduated with Presidents High Honor Roll with an A.S. degree in Criminal Justice…Peter will tell you he wrote my papers, so not true lol but yeah he definitely did help me through some real trial times but hey those are the best ones, right!

2004, My CJ degree landed me in a very extensive background check and lifelong interview process to land a job with the Department of Homeland Security. I gave oath to our country as a US Customs Officer. Bringing me to FLETC (Federal Law Enforcement Training Center) with an intensive anti-terrorist boot camp training that certainly kicked my butt and changed my life forever…Those 9 months were the…ugh..I don’t even have the words…God Bless our FRONTLINE is all I can say!!! I was Blessed to have known the right person, Phil Maddalena, to get me this job location..guess where?? Yep you guessed it, Buffalo, NY/Canada border to be with the Love of my Life!!

2005, Love of My Life, by Jim Brickman was played at our amazing wedding…Peter and I become one…

2006, 4Life Research I have been growing with this company that has been helping people’s health with Transfer Factor for over 10 years now…My approaching 5 years working from home with 4Life has assisted me not only with mine, my families, friends, and complete strangers health, but has been a huge part of my personal growth. As well as the ability to be home with my children. As we all have the decision to help ourselves to make the right decisions in our lives…I have come to learn and know about passion, perseverance, dedication, and love all in all = results…It’s all about the people, it’s all about the experience!!

2006, Solemnly, My Daddy went to be with the Lord…I am so Blessed to have Him take me under his wings for the special time I had with him here on earth. I know for a fact he is an angel watching over us all like the gazillion other angels we have, but my Daddy I know he is assisting to make this a better place..I know it!! I am so thankful for the personality and traits I picked up from him! The love and compassion he had for others and how he went out of his way to make the best for everyone even complete strangers was gosh something special that I must keep this legacy going!! It is my DUTY and I know I am not alone!! There is no greater love than a Love between a Father and Daughter!

2007, 2010, and now 2012 God has Blessed us with our three children who through their eyes I see the beauty of God’s creation and his Grace he pours onto others and sheer example of Unconditional Love that everyone has the ability to shower. Who does not want to be a part of their families lives and watch their children grow??

2012, I am on a mission for my family, friends, and everyone I am meant to assist on our journey…I always felt satisfied knowing I am helping people support their lives in exercise and eating healthy…That is why I chose Personal Training, Zumba Fitness, and 4Life.

If passion is what you are desiring to bring to your forefront in your life…you already have itit is within the rest is up to you!!

Age is never unhealthy, the lack of exercise causes all health risks.

For the first time ever we now offer Zumba® Gold at PACC!

Mops in Buffalo, NY It’s time WNY!

Every parent needs to go through this season of life a season to have to let grow..This is the first for me right now to have to send my Baby Girl to Big Kids School! :’) Exciting and sad at the same time but our need to fulfill our children’s needs is beyond important. Am I an expert, absolutely not..Am I scared..A Little..Sad..Yes BUT the new season will be a GREAT One!!

I have always LOVED my Job because I have been So VERY BLESSED to be home with my kiddos from day one and when Hubby came home he’d either come with me or stay home with the kids. My Job is not only fun, personally self-fulfilling, but is rewarding to not only myself but helping others. I tell everyone that I love teaching Zumba Fitness and Personal Train to have the me time to have adult conversation.

Not only is New Covenant Church our life giving church. Offering Zumba Fitness/Fitness Training but a MOPS Group that last year was a great success that makes a difference in not only my life but the life of many other Moms in our community. This year I have the vision to fill the family room with so many Moms like you and I who are hungry for that connection with others.

The overview of this years theme is derived from a book called, “Mom Connection: Creating Vibrant Relationships in the Midst of Motherhood.” The writer, Tracey Bianchi true essence is that moms need to be connected in relationships in order to be better moms. The content includes an emphasis on finding your rhythm in relationships, in terms of family, marriage, friendships and broader community. A few of us Moms got together to share our thoughts on this theme and there was such a strong agreement that this could not be any more perfect than where we are in this here season.

We are excited to announce our first Mops meeting will be Thursday, September 13th @ 9:15am-11:15am. Within the ministry we offer childcare (called Moppets) while all of us mother’s do get together for lots fun, food, and fellowship. I am excited to announce our first meeting will be “Planning Children’s Birthday Themes.” Jen and I will be decorating our own table to give some cute ideas for your kiddos birthdays and for less! 🙂 If anyone else would like to participate in our decorating please let us know. This will include food ideas which will be really cool because every meeting which is once a month. Always the 2nd Thursday of the month we always have a nice hot breakfast and the best coffee in the world!

So if you are looking for a place in your community to connect with many other moms who are going through exactly what you are going through, or will go through, or support with your own experiences well here is now for you! You may very well purchase our theme book prior to our first meeting for we will be going over the first chapter. We do have a few copies for sale as well. Do let us know if you would like us to include that in the Mops Membership fee of $35.00 with the book for an entire year.
