Fitness is my life… the physical, nutritional, and spiritual combined together are what makes me who I am. I am Gamiani Penaherrera, but you can call me Gami. In my country of origin, the Dominican Republic, I was always active. I was a long distance runner and was part of the volleyball team. I came to the United States in the early 90’s, where I met and married my wonderful husband. He was a professional soccer player. We have two fantastic boys who also play soccer. This led me to become a soccer coach. Soccer is truly a game our entire family loves. Building upon my love for soccer and running, I incorporated weight training into my routines. This led me to become a certified Zumba Instructor. My thirst for total fitness grew, and I became certified in Zumba Toning, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training),Tabata Bootcamp, LesMills Body Pump, and most recently, Piloxing. I am also certified in CPR.
Good nutrition is preventive medicine. I believe in order to be truly "fit" you need to be nutritionally, physically, and spiritually engaged. The most important goal of mine is to educate, empower, and motivate my clients with the knowledge that they need to help improve their eating habits which leads to overall well being.
Music is in my blood! It is a spiritual healer, motivator, and an extremely fun way to get moving! I always use music in my classes. It is a part of me. The louder the better! I am always very excited to be on the cutting edge of physical fitness! I am continually developing my fitness skills to provide you with a well-rounded program that fits your needs. So come join me, improve your health, and feel great! You will be hooked.
I truly believe I was born to do this, not only to help people look better, but to help them become stronger. I want to help people feel proud of themselves inside and out!
