 Hi Everyone! My name is Melinda I was born and raised in Michigan. I have a wonderful husband and five children, so my home is filled with lots of energy (you can imagine). I have always worked out trying different programs and classes. I fell in love with Zumba at Body Language and became a certified Zumba instructor in 2011. Zumba has brought a unique balance to my life, allowing me to put my dancing shoes on and just have fun!

.Andrea Von Behren

Did you know that Andrea has never lost a hula hoop contest, in fact she was on Bozo's Big Top show ( hula hooping of course!). Her bucket list includes going to Alaska and hiking through the Grand Canyon. Who would have guessed that her favorite songs are: Mama Mia, Hairspray, Grease! (only all of us that have been in her ZUMBA classes!)
I love the fact that life has led me down this road of health and enabled me to touch so many students' lives. I am truly passionate about offering a fitness, yoga and nutrition program that allows every student to look and feel his/her best and am SO grateful to be surrounded by an awesome staff who share my passion and a wonderful family who have supported me every step along the way. The training that I received in order to be able to effectively share my passions include my degree from MSU as a Registered Dietitian, A.C.E Fitness Certification and Yoga Certification provided by Jonny Kest’s Center for Yoga as well as over 13 years of teaching experience. Look forward to having YOU in class!!
