Ann Wiley  (Zumba Instructor)
Ann's weight loss journey began early in 2010. She was suddenly having to un-tag herself from a number of facebook photos. She knew she had gained weight, but those 10 pounds she had promised to lose each year had now turned into over 40 pounds. After seeing the photos online, she decided to stop promising to lose the extra weight and take action to get rid of it once and for all.

Ann joined Weight Watchers in January of 2010 and by October had stripped away 26 pounds. She was successful in meeting her goal and became a lifetime member, but then suddenly hit a plateau. Changing her eating habits had helped, but she needed to amp up her exercise routine.

Ann began taking classes at a local fitness center and was encouraged by a friend to try Zumba. after one class, she was hooked. The latin rhythms and music kept her motivated as she began to shed inches and pounds again. Through Zumba, Ann found you could have fun and still get in a high-cardio workout. After a year of being a zumba student, Ann decided to lead the Zumba party and received ler license in February 2012. Since becoming an instructor, Ann has continued her weight loss journey and has gotten rid of a total of 46 pounds.

Ann continues to follow the Weight Watchers program. Daily, she also finds joy in all things fitness because of both the physical and emotional benefits it offers.
