"Make it scared!" Meet our new Shazzy Health Teacher Tanya Williams! by Shazzy Health
Hello everybody!!! I'm Tanya Williams. Most people call me Tan. I live in Slidell, LA. Slidell is a city about 40 km outside of New Orleans. I'm originally from New Orleans. I have been a licensed Zumba instructor for two years. Two months ago I became a Strong Zumba certified fitness trainer. I am also a group fitness instructor and personal trainer certified by the AFPA (American Fitness Professionals Association). I am currently working on my certification as a nutritionist and sports nutritionist through the ISSA (International Sports Sciences Association). I am also a 12 year old United States Air Force veteran. I am currently working as a middle school teacher for science.
In a house with two older brothers, it was only natural that I, the only girl and the youngest, should follow in their footsteps and do sports. I ran athletics in middle school and high school. When I went to the military, I went through intensive physical training because it was a necessary part of the job. I am now active by participating in street races sponsored by NOTC (New Orleans Track Club) and going to the gym to keep fit with cardio machines and weights. I've never been on a dance team, but I've always had a passion for dance. I always danced in my free time and developed a passion for dance. When I was 12 I danced in front of friends and my family for entertainment.
Growing up was great, I came from a family with great parents. Excellent family support. However, I had a big problem with shyness, low self-esteem and self-doubt. It affected me everywhere. One day I asked God to get me out of this mindset. Although sport was a point of sale, something was still missing. God gave me a gift, a passion for fitness, to spread the gospel and build trust in others by helping them maintain a positive attitude through fitness while serving Christ. This is my primary goal as a Shazzy Fitness Instructor. By stepping on faith instead of fear. With the "make it fearful" mentality, I am really grateful for the opportunity to be obedient and to use the gift that God gave me to reach the masses, serve the Lord and win souls, and through Shazzy Fitness is it about that .
I have always wanted to bring group fitness to church through a format that is faith-oriented and family-friendly. A Google search led me to Shazzy Fitness, which offers everything a Christian group fitness instructor could ask for. It offers the perfect opportunity to serve people and positively influence people's lives. For example, when people come to class after a hard day or when they are having a hard time in life, my goal is for them to experience shazzy fitness and prayer in the group fitness class as a base and refuge.
