Founder, Heart & Soul Fitness, Certified REFIT® and REV+FLOW Instructor
Tana is a wife to a supportive husband and a stay-at-home mom to a beautiful little girl. Professionally, she is an elementary school educator. She has been a dancer since she was young and as an adult found that dancing is still the only workout she truly enjoys. She found REFIT® on YouTube a few years ago while dreading yet another trip to the gym. REFIT® had everything she was looking for and more! She has found it to be an amazingly fun workout with great music. She loves the impactful songs and inspiration given by instructors after each class. After giving birth and taking time off from teaching, she decided she wanted to be a REFIT® instructor. Her goal is to motivate her students to be the best version of themselves both inside and out. In a REFIT ® class, she believes in experiencing fitness, building community, and making an impact.
Certified REFIT® Instructor
Katie came sideways into REFIT® and is still a bit surprised on where it has taken her. Her career is scientific and traditionally her workouts consisted of running and MMA based works like Core de Force. A good friend convinced her to try REFIT® despite some resistance about the "danciness" but she was hooked. If you are nervous about coming into a dance fitness class because you feel like you have two left feet, or your don't do "dancy," her classes are a great way to ease into dance fitness with a mix of choreography that includes punching, kicks, and attitude. Katie's playlist can best be described as punchy and empowering with a mix of toning songs that will encourage you to explore your limits.

Certified REFIT® Instructor
Lizzie is a wife, super busy sports mama of two, a full-time elementary school teacher, and a new REFIT® instructor!
She found REFIT® and Heart and Soul Fitness when she was really struggling to "find time" to exercise. After attending her first class, she was so excited because it was fun, uplifting, encouraging, challenging, and didn't feel like something she "had to do," but something she wanted to do! Her daughter was also able to participate in class, and she LOVED being able to exercise with her! It then became much easier to find the time to exercise with REFIT® at Heart and Soul Fitness because it was something she truly enjoyed.
Lizzie says, "Come join me and the awesome Heart and Soul Fitness community! I promise that you'll have a great time and leave feeling encouraged and uplifted. Heart and Soul and REFIT® have truly changed my life!"

Certified Zumba® Instructor
Tony's mom always used to tell him that when she would take him to the park as a child he would become really happy when he heard music and would start to dance. Dancing and happiness! This is what happened to Tony when he discovered Zumba® four years ago. He is grateful for ID&F Studio and its owner Iris Flores that gave him the opportunity to become a Zumba® instructor. One day, by accident, he had to sub for an instructor at the studio while wearing pajamas and pink shoes! That is how he lead his first class. It was successful and the rest is history! Tony believes music brings happiness. Tony loves working out but working out to music.... that's even better. Tony says, "Let's dance and be happy together!"
