John’s passion for fitness took root in an unlikely place: Ballroom Dancing. He eventually became a professional ballroom instructor for Fred Astaire, competing nationally before he ventured out on his own to further his studies in dance, fitness and health. For the past twenty years, John has brought this passion and calling to the world of group fitness and personal training. He is certified in a variety of formats, including Cycling, Core & Strength Conditioning, Step, Kickboxing, TRX, Zumba® and Pilates.
John believes that consistency and trust in muscle memory are essential to body and muscle awareness. His classes are characterized by popular, dance-y tracks and an ability to make his students laugh (even while they are grimacing in pain). With unstoppable enthusiasm and a genuine love of life, John’s classes are a testament to the adage that “Attitude is everything.”
