Hello! I'm Amanda Kohn, and I live in Lexington, KY. I've been a ZIN™ Member since Oct 2016 and I absolutely love teaching Zumba. Come visit my class. I guarantee you will have a blast when you ditch the workout and join the party! Got questions? Don't hesitate to drop me a message!

My Story:
In 2014, I was in a physical rut.  After having my third (and last!) kid, I had very little time to take care of my health.  As a result, I was overweight - heavier than ever before - and my cholesterol hit 300.  I was only 31 years old.  I tried a few group fitness classes at my gym, but repetitive weight lifting and drill-style HIIT programs just weren't for me. 

I took my first Zumba class on a Sunday afternoon, sweat all the way through my clothes, and couldn't move the next day.  But I loved it so much I took another class the following Wednesday!  The music and choreo reminded me of cheerleading in high school and I stubbornly tried to keep up despite being so very out of shape.  I kept going every week to at least 3 Zumba classes.  My family missed me and had to piece together a few dinners on their own, but my cholesterol dropped to 204 and I had lost more than 30 pounds in less than a year. (I was also a lot less of a grumpy-pants.  I'm just saying.)

After 2 years of dancing in the back corners of the room, quietly reliving my glory days as a cheerleader, choreographer and coach, I did the training to become a licensed Zumba instructor.  With years of unused choreo dancing in my head, I could finally pull together my own routines, and maybe even some day share them with a class of my own.  In just 3 months, I auditioned and (some how???) was offered a class at the shiny, new YMCA in town!  Luck, luck, and more luck!  

Today, I'm a lot healthier though I still have a long way to go with my eating habits. :)  I now teach an average of 3 classes a week and love watching my students transform as I did.  Whether it's mastering a new choreo, losing weight, or making friends, I feel so very lucky to get to observe those moments as they happen for my students.  Zumba is indeed a fitness program, but it is also a community of some of the nicest people you'll ever meet, and a happy place for nearly anyone who tries a few classes.  I hope you can find your happy place in my class, or in other classes within our Zumba Community.  

Let it move you, and let it change you for the better!
Amanda
