Strong by Zumba
My name is Acura Harvey and I have been a group fitness instructor for three years. I am a single parent and a full time Registered Nurse. I served in the United States Army for eight years and encountered a knee injury that caused me to have surgery. After surgery I gained about 30 pounds and I had to get back in shape. I started my journey at Absolute Fitness about four years ago on a 7 day guest pass with a friend. After the seven days was up I joined the gym as a member. I started out with Zumba with many wonderful instructors and found my love for Zumba. I then tried other classes like spin, APT, yoga and many more. I loved going to the gym because the people were so friendly and willing to help me with my goals. That’s why I had to get certified in Zumba because if stepping into a Zumba class encouraged me to get fit then I knew I could inspire others to get fit to. I am not only certified to teach Zumba but also Strong by Zumba. I love doing what I do and hopefully I will inspire someone to get active to.
