In 2003, I got my first job in the fitness industry as a part-time receptionist at Bodies in Motion Northridge. Looking back, I never EVER would have thought that job would spark an interest that would lead me to pursue a career in Fitness. But it sure did, and it has been nothing but a blessing in disguise! In the next few years, I became a Certified Personal Trainer and taught Group classes like Bootcamp, Body Sculpt, and Circuit Training. 

In April 2008, I was finally convinced (after multiple attempts) by a friend to take this new class called Zumba®. This 1 hour class combined my love for dance, fitness, and teaching! Whaaaat?? I was blown away!! Within 2 weeks of that first class, I found a Zumba Fitness Workshop in Fresno and got licensed instantly.

Fit Squad LA was founded a year later in December 2009 and the rest is history :)

Gail and I are so grateful to have our studio and for the incredible FSLA community that visit us everyday!

Our goal is simple: To create an environment that's welcoming, high-energy, and lots of FUN while breaking a sweat!! So come on in and bring all your friends & family to class! Get ready to shake, kick butt, and dance your heart out!

XO, C

Hola! Mi nombre Gail. Como estas?!

OK just kidding! I don't speak Spanish, but you wouldn't know it from all the Latin flavor I fling around the room via my gyrating hips! Zumba has helped me find my joy and share it with others - Just come try my classes and I guarantee two things - 1) You will leave smiling 2) You will leave sweaty!

Rescued from couch-potato status in May 2008, I barely lasted halfway though my first class & didn't even own a sports bra. After losing 9 pounds in 5 weeks, I realized that the program really worked for anti-gym girls like me! I began to believe there could be a chance that I didn't have to buy clothes that had an "x" next to the size. I did what I could to get to the gym. So many nights my boys (then 4 and 8) would play right next to me while I danced. Soon instead of looking forward to my couch time, I was counting the hours 'till class! From a size 18 to size 6 and 55 lbs lighter, I've got so much more energy and a sunnier, more positive outlook - something I used to only think was possible with a pizza and 32 oz. Coke!

Come by, say hi, and dance a little while - your mind, body, and spirit will thank you! See you soon!
