I have been overweight for most of my life.
I have yo-yo'ed between being very heavy, and not-so-heavy, but always overweight.
I have wanted to be a fitness instructor for 20+ years, but have never been able to control my weight.
And then Zumba changed my life. I have been able to achieve my dream of being a fitness instructor, and have been able to control my weight for the first time in my life.
I am 40 years old, and I am in the best shape and the fittest that I have ever been. I have lost 32kgs and over 100cms - and have kept the weight off for over 2 years.
I can help you. I know many of you are struggling with your weight as I have done, and I wanted to share my journey with you to show you that it can be done. I know how horrible it feels to be fat, frumpy and unhappy.
But I changed my life, and you can to. I have been where you are now - I know how it feels.
With Zumba love, Shantelle.
FROM MY PARTICIPANTS.......
I just want to let everyone considering the challenge know that it's the best thing you can do for yourself and your family! Exercising is fun with Zumba with Shantelle and our lovely participants. We laugh, sweat and work hard but with smiles on our faces! Not to mention the smiles and happiness and satisfaction you feel when you jump on the scales! Shantelle is inspirational, extremely supportive and she cares about each individual and wants YOU to succeed! Give her challenge a go and you won't regret it! So many classes and variety to choose from. I personally find it hard to pick a favourite. I love all the classes! Fitness, Toning, Aqua, Sentao, Gold, I've tried them all and love them all! Wish I had more time to do more! Don't think, just do it and be amazed at what you can achieve with Zumba Shantelle!
Shantelle is fantastic and very encouraging, and her Zumba classes are great. I lost weight and toned up after baby number 3. Having just had baby number 4, I can't wait to start back!
I am a GP working in the Gold Coast and a colleague of mine introduced me to Shantelle's class in Aqua Zumba a couple of months ago and I have since then loved exercising. Shantelle inspires me a lot to walk my talk. She is a living witness to weight loss and healthy lifestyle with energetic exhilarating fun exercise routines. The songs that she picks are great and it has a soul. Highly recommended!!!
Just awesome, and such an inspiration.
Thanks Zumba with Shantelle for making me feel so welcome at your Zumba class last night. It was my first ever Zumba class and I had a ball. You explained everything to me before it started, looked after me during the class and made sure I 'survived' after the class. You introduced me to EVERYONE - so even though I arrived alone I didn't feel alone. It was definitely not what I expected....it was better!Thanks again!
