Zumba- We had a Zumbathon for a Fallen Police Officer in Topeka on January 18 ath Lee Arena at Wasburn University. Several Genesis Instructors from Topeka and Lawrence along with a few out of town guests Rocked the Arena and raised over $1400.00 for the FOP fund. We filled the Arena with over 289 Dancers with 25 vendors. I also had a Great DJ and a Ballon designer decorate the stage. This was a awesome way to have th community out to support the Topeka Police Dept and all they do for us! The Photos will tell the story!!!!!  

We have more Zumbathons coming up ..Plus a ZIN Master training and a Basic 1 and 2 Zumba training. Im hoping to get a few new recruits that weekend!!!

 

Feature Instructor: SW Topeka Genesis

Angie Hemsley


I started teaching in the fall of 2009.

I began my professional journey when I wanted to cross train with spin while training for a marathon. After a few months I decided to go out on a limb and try my hand at subbing. The next week I had two classes: Power Circuit Blast. I was so nervous my first class, but once I started teaching, I knew I had found my passion. My teaching evolved into one-on-one personal training, bootcamp, spin, Bodypump and now Group Power.

- AFFA certified personal trainer
- Bodypump certified 5 years ago
- Group Power certified 5 months ago

Fitness Philosophy: My fitness philosophy is to stay consistent. Also, HAVE FUN! No workout should be boring. I never take myself too seriously, and I'm always willing to try new things. I love the energy that comes from the group fitness room. Combining music, moves and people creates this energy that keeps you coming back for more.

What gets me motivated to workout? Music. Find the right music and the magic happens.

Angie was the lead this week for a Secret Bonus Song- Video we submitted for MOSSA and Group Power!! Send us good Luck !! We Rocked it, hope they like it!
