Bob Evans Brunch Down on the Farm Following Fitness

Bob Evans Brunch Down on the Farm Following Fitness

What a great way to celebrate Day 100 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project. Zumba and yummy brunch at Bob Evans. Dancing, having a meal together after praying, and then catching up on life with a friend who is more like a sister is a perfect way for me to spend Saturday mornings. Kibby and I have been doing this for five years now but are unfortunately experiencing turn over with our teachers. After our class recently moved to an earlier time (hence brunch instead of lunch like before), it is now being cancelled after next Saturday. Our instructor was made another offer to teach dance elsewhere and it was too good for her to refuse. Though we’re happy for her, it’s a total bummer that our class is going away. That’s the bad news.

The good news is, since we are experiencing similar turnover at the Y where I’ve subbed for a few years, I’ve decided to bite the bullet and get my certification as I mentioned in a previous post. This just makes me more determined. Hopefully I’ll be able to take over both classes. It’s a double win for me because the Y is going to pay 75-100% of my training cost, and if I begin teaching at the other gym, I’ll get a free membership (I’ve gone as Kibby’s guest all these years). Zumba certification is costly as are gym memberships, so if any of you are interested in teaching, you can find classes on line by googling Zumba Trainings near you. Being AED and CPR certified is also required. Local fires stations offer these trainings. I hope you find this info helpful.

The wall mural makes us look as if we really are down on the farm!                                                     I’d just rummaged in my bag for my wallet to pay the bill, hence it and my umbrella sticking up! Kibby is gorgeous in her animal print and I’m in my Calvin Klein. We both know what we like!

Our server was awesome and captured the above picture, however he cut off our shoes.  These Calvin Klein gold braided wedge mules are oldies but goodies. They pair perfectly with the  Calvin Klein cork and its gold accents. An image consultant client bartered it for services.      That’s savvy!

As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Chick who understands the value of women being in life with one another, it is SO worth it for me to add “Certified Zumba Instructor” to my Pink Collar Portfolio Career. It’s another tool in my Coach’s belt since many of my image consultations involve addressing the issues most of us have with our bodies. Being more knowledgeable about fitness will benefit the women I work with. Besides, I adore dancing and have always wanted to teach it, so this is a dream come true.  Even if that wasn’t the case, I would do it anyway because as much as dance feeds my soul, time with my Soul Sister does that in spades. Getting certified and teaching the class will ensure we have many more years of Brunch Down on the Farm (or Lunch at BWs) Following Fitness!
