This amazing Texan boy used to assist multiple group cardio classes in his hometown from zumba to hip hop, aerobics, among others. Shortly after his move, Anthony found himself missing dancing and so he found his way into a fitness studio again. In February of 2018, his love for dancing as well as with a push from his mentors in the right direction, lead Anthony to get certified as licensed Zumba instructor.
Anthony's class can be described as high energy dance party with flairs of reggae-ton, merengue and other Latin rhythms with some fun pop and hip hop music mixed in. Anthony loves his very active lifestyle, as he will say "always on the go"! He plays in sports leagues, does his own workouts, and truly enjoys exploring all things California has to offer. "I want my students to reach their goals and have fun doing it. I love the energy that comes with a Zumba class and I never feel like it's just a workout!
