Stephanie- Hi, my name is Stephanie! I've been teaching dance aerobics for 10+ years and currently teach SHiNE Dance Fitness. I am a strong believer that working out should be fun, that helps you stick with it. For my real job, I train doctors and nurses on how to use their patient tracking software. I've always been passionate about learning, so naturally teaching aerobics came easily to me. I was diagnosed with severe allergies and asthma as a child and was told that I would always have a hard time breathing. I didn't let that stop me, after many years of medications and management, I am happy to say that I am able to use 90% of my lungs and have been cleared to teach aerobics (teaching aerobics helped me to achieve this goal). I hope that my story encourages people to continue to fight and improve themselves. I hope to see you in class soon!

Carol –Hi! My closest friends and family call me C.J. (feel free to call me Carol or CJ, I’ll answer to both). I am a stepmother to 5 boys who always keep me guessing, the youngest of 4 sisters, and a lover of the giant dog breeds! At one point, I had a Siberian Husky, Saint Bernard and a Newfoundland.... that’s a lot of fur! Now a days, my boys are grown and I’m down to my Newfoundland. Those that know me and grew up
with me would all agree that I have never had a ‘physical workout’ type of personality... But all it took
was a surprise to my sister at one of her POUND classes, and the hook set. I participated in that fateful
class 2 years ago and haven’t looked back since. It literally changed my perspective on working out, that
it could actually be FUN and ENJOYABLE. Just last year I became a certified POUND Pro to take my love
of the ripstix to the next level. To be able to share the release and freedom one can experience in
POUND class in truly amazing. I am grateful to be given the opportunity to be able to Rock out with you
and can’t wait to hear your story.

Amber- Hey y’all! My name is Amber and I have been a certified Pound Pro since January 2020. I took my first class in October 2019 and it was love at first strike! I truly fell in love with the connection POUND brings, not only through music, but people as well. Our Colorado POUND commUNITY is simply the best! One of my favorite things about POUND is that perfection is not a requirement. It is a class for any age at any stage, for everyone and every-body. I am also a certified REB3L Groove instructor, but am not currently teaching. My family relocated to Colorado in 2018. I have been married just shy of 16 years and have two beautiful daughters. “Mom” has been my official full-time job for the last 10 years. When I'm not in class, you can usually find me doing anything outdoors, a DIY project, or curled up with a good book. I am a complete foodie and will forever be a lover of Dr. Pepper. My faith and my family are the things I hold dearest to my heart. I hope I see you class very soon! I cannot wait for you to join the band. Rocking out is always more fun with others. [💚] Love, Ripstixs, and Hair Flips, Amber
Jenn-Hi there! My name is Jenn and I am a certified 200-hour yoga instructor. My journey started in 2016 when I took a flow-based yoga class that combined dynamic movement with mindful breathwork. What started out as a physical activity to help undo the damage caused by a computer-based desk job, quickly became an integral part of my mental health wellness. In 2021, I was presented with an amazing opportunity to go through Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga Farm Ithaca. I received my YTT certificate in January, 2022.
Through the practice of yoga, I've learned how essential it is to nurture the connection between the mind, body, and spirit. Learning how to pause, listen, and "just be" in the present moment is such a gift. My goal as an instructor is to provide space for others to be themselves and enjoy yoga in whatever capacity they want or need.
When I'm not being "zen" as my family lovingly calls my passion, I can be found enjoying the outdoors with my hubby, two boys, and my chocolate lab Brutus. We love to golf, hike, paddleboard, camp, and be outdoors as much as possible. Unless it's hockey season, and then you can find me at the rink being a goalie mom.
Jessica- Hello future self love patrons!! My name is Jessica and I have been with Reb3l Groove for over 5 years and am now a certified intructor and currently working on my Reb3l Strength certification.
I would start by saying that prior to discovering Reb3l, I have never, EVER, been into fitness and pretty much neglected just your basic healthy necessities of life. I was not a seriously involved kid growing up, and I have zero background in dance or any type of performance. I have had a deep dark history of insecurities and stage fright.
As a lot of us have experienced, I took a break up for me to become motivated. Lol. Needless to say my mom had taken a Reb3l class and begged me to come.
I walked in to my first class, stood in the back and enjoyed my time. This was a class of all ages, all sizes, different backgrounds, but the energy was on fire! By my 3rd class I was hooked.
More than fitness, I needed a mental pick-me-up. My confidence has grown, I have more energy, I feel sexy and if anything, you can't help but to smile!
I am a mom of 3 kids, a fur baby, an auntie, a spouse and still full time Barber. Life can be overwhelming and I think Reb3l/ fitness is so powerful. I think it's even made me a better mom. I want to inspire my kids to inspire. Teach my kids that self love and happiness is so important. I wanna give that to you all too!
I am delighted to be apart of this team and I look forward to dancing with you!!
