Fit Moms - moms who balance the crazy mom life and fitnessStayFitMom: What do you love most about Zumba?

Kara: It’s fun so it keeps me motivated to be consistent with exercising.  I also love seeing that it makes people
super happy.  I always say that everyone has at least a little desire to be able to dance.  It’s easy to feel awkward or self conscious but with Zumba I can give them the moves and the more they do it the more they turn into a dancing exercising machine!

StayFitMom: What’s your biggest struggle when it comes to living healthy?

Kara: My biggest struggle when it comes to living healthy is coming up with different delicious meals! Social media is great to get ides! Another struggle is to resist treats so I allow myself treats sometimes. Then I don’t feel mad and deprived.

 

 

 

 

 

Inspirational Mommies- Moms who balance family life with fitnessStayFitMom: What is the biggest reward that comes with balancing health, fitness and being a mom?

Kara: Balancing health, fitness, and being a mom can be really tricky but there some great rewards that come with sticking to it.  My biggest reward is that it makes me a happier better version of me.  Then when I am happier I am a much better mom and I have more energy to do all the things busy moms do.  Teaching Zumba is also so rewarding because it keeps me active but most importantly I have seen so many women become happy and confident.

StayFitMom: Biggest piece of advice for women who want to incorporate health and fitness into their lives?

Kara: The best advice I can give women who want to incorporate health and fitness in their lives is to first decide you’re going to do it.  Know that you are important and make YOU a priority!  It’s so important to figure out what kind of exercise you like, and just do it.  I like Zumba because it’s always a party but we work hard too.  I also throw in some weight lifting a few times a week.  You have to find what you like and what works for you!
