Even though I'm into Zumba not running/figure/bodybuilding, I still like to stop by her FB page: Recipes for Gals in Figure and Bodybuilding

I met Betsy over 20 years ago when we worked together. She was someone that was easy to get along with and could always make you laugh. In fact our little group that sat together at work got separated by our supervisor because we were laughing too much. She eventually left the company I work for and moved on, but throughout the years we kept in touch.
Betsy brings a lot of fun and spunk to our classes. She is our merengue queen. Whenever I need a merengue in the playlist, I throw in one of her songs. Leave it to her to introduce the whistle to our class. First time she brought it, I think she startled all of us on stage. She surprises our guests with it. It's kind of funny 'cause they are totally caught off guard. She definitely knows how to work & get the crowd cheering. She is always happy...seriously she is. You can count on her to cheer you up. She's always looking for the good in others and she helps keep our team balanced when we have our 'moments'.
Love ya 'B'!!!
You are almost there!

As far as instructors, majority of us showed up to teach. We were missing 2 I believe. I know the pictures and some videos show us goofing off most of the time, but one thing for sure, the leading instructor is always doing his/her job to lead. Now the others, no guarantee what you're going to get from them. Most of the time, they follow & sometimes, they add their own flair...lol. You just have to be there to see what I mean.
This particular morning, someone was suppose to do warm-up...and um, he was running late. And the plan has been for him to do warm-up all last week...and that didn't happen. We had a little payback for him. We normally alternate songs between all of us. I thought I would throw in a fast one back to back with his medium tempo one. Yeah, I was getting some dirty looks during his routine. Hahahaha...thanks Liu for always being a good sport.
As if that wasn't enough picking on the poor guy, during his 3rd routine, not even planned, we slowly left the stage and left him solo. He didn't even notice we were standing at the side until 3/4 of the way through his routine. Only he can walk off and call us 'jerks'. Lol. Some may not get our humor, but that's just the way we are with one another. It's never about competition who's the better instructor or who has the most fans. We goof off and make fun of each other, crack jokes, play jokes on each other, but in the end, nothing but love for one another.
