ZINspiration Mondays: Jacqueline Gikow

This week's ZINspiration comes from Jacqueline Gikow, a new ZIN member who is 67 and says, "Living well shows that you can be fit as you age."

Year of Zumba certification:  2014
My three favorite songs for Zumba right now are:  Waka Waka, Zumbao, Knee Deep (feat. Jimmy Buffett)
The funniest thing that ever happened while teaching was: My first teaching experience. I was like a deer in headlights. I totally forgot the songs, the steps and all my choreo. Luckily, the class was really supportive and I have improved since then.
Zumba has impacted me by: Helping me to have an active outlook, providing me with new friends and letting me help others achieve a healthy lifestyle.
My best advice for new ZIN members is: Exercise patience. It takes a while to build your practice. Take advantage of the ZIN membership benefits and have fun!
Other things you should know about me are: I specialize in Zumba Gold and Aqua Zumba. I currently teaching private classes at the Christopher Residence in Chelsea, NY.
