"These classes are my therapy."
What made you join the Vixen Army?
I have been attending Vixen for 3 years now; and over the past year and a half I have had the membership. These classes are my therapy. I am not only able to let go of all of my stresses and worries from the day and just feel the music, but I am also able to feel my body and soul come alive. The best part, which I never even expected to happen, was that after class I was able to reflect on all of those feelings. I began to notice that I was not living MY life.
I recently made a few changes because I was feeling so deeply uncomfortable in my life; I knew that I had to do something. I was living as an empty shell of myself for so long that I didn’t even realize how unhappy I was until I took my first Vixen class after making these changes. That was the best class of my life! I have taken charge of my life and I am living every day in the present and making sure that the daily decisions I make are true to ME and my son.
I am 30 years old and feel as if I have just begun to live my life. I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for me. I will forever be grateful for Janet Jones, the Vixen Army and Ana with all of her little talks after class. Saying that this workout is inspirational is an understatement. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that I’ve lost 20 pounds and countless inches!

Favorite Cheat Meal?
I am not going to lie, most of my meals are cheat meals. I work out so I can eat whatever my little heart desires. But if I had to choose, the Chimi- Burrito from Latin House (with Vaca Frita)!
That’s a tough one because I love so many of them; but I have to say the new Drunk in Love mix just gets me in the zone! I also LOVE LOVE LOVED the Dirty Diana routine we did for Michael Jackson’s birthday class. Bring that one back Janet!
Kat Von D Liquid Matte in Lolita is my go to
I would have to say Michael Jackson, his music is timeless.
If you were a popstar, which would it be?
I honestly cannot think of one pop star that I would be. I have eclectic taste in music and I like certain things about all of them but none of them can fit the complexities that make up me. However, I can say that when I dance at Vixen I am a little bit Rihanna, with a dash of Bey a pinch of Nicki and a smidgeon of Iggy(…and somedays you’ll get a splash of Rick Ross too)
“It is well with my soul” This phrase is calming, inspiring and spiritual all at the same time. And it has brought me much needed peace.
