I attended a HOT HULA Master Class with Anna-Rita Sloss at LVAC and 24HR Fitness in Las Vegas. Immediately, I fell in love with HOT HULA fitness and knew this was the workout for me. She announced that she was looking for Instructors and handed out signup sheets. My sister is an exercise physiologist and mentioned that we could team teach together. We both signed up and planned to attend the first training in Las Vegas. At that time I was 208lbs, straight from couch-sitting but knew instantly that this was a workout that I could do and would keep me off the couch. I never aspired to become a fitness instructor, but I am loving this journey. My first goal was to lose weight and become an instructor. After I did that, I aimed for Master Trainer. I now have been teaching for 3 years and in February of last year attended a Master Camp for HOT HULA fitness and HOT FUSION and in July of that same year became a Master Trainer for both formats. I’m loving my journey because of both of these formats. I now am teaching  Silver&Fit, attended a QiForze and Be Bad Hip Hop certification and hope to add other dance fitness formats to my belt. I grew up with Polynesian dancing and Hip Hop dancing. Anything with dancing, I'm down. HOT HULA fitness has been so much fun, and it’s in my blood. HOT FUSION, on the other hand, was a lot more challenging. The dancing I knew I could do, but the weights scared me. It didn't take me to long to get the Old Skool moves again. The weights and compound moves made me work hard. I can say now that the difference it has made to my body has been AMAZING. I have now grown to love the weight section more than the dancing. I'm a HOT HULA/HOT FUSION fanatic. Teaching both programs has been so much fun. I love seeing the hard work they put in and all the stories of how each program has helped make them stronger or the moves easier. I love attending trainings and sharing what I have learned. The goal is to make their journey smooth and a lot easier then when I started. For me in Las Vegas, it is my goal to get HOT HULA fitness and HOT FUSION exposure in ALL of Nevada and to help with American Samoa, where my sister, Master Trainer Ursula Te'o-Martin, is living. I will continue go wherever is needed to get HOT HULA/HOT FUSION noticed and keep pushing for this program to grow bigger than it is now.

 Favorite food is steak and a lobster/crab topping with fully loaded mashed potatoes, green beans and mushrooms. "Two of the most precious things in my life are the gospel of Jesus Christ and my family." This is a saying that my mom would always say in her testimony, and I have come to feel the same. What I want people to remember about me after I have gone is that I loved life, was unafraid to try new things, I loved and put my family on a pedestal, and I could always be counted on. I hope they remember me as an all-around good person.
