From Our Editors
Nicole White-Fiandaca struggled with her weight. She told NJ Iron Magazine that she was "extremely obese" after giving birth to her two children. This coupled with additional health problems led a physician to recommend gastric bypass surgery. Unwilling to accept her fate, she changed her diet and started a simple exercise routine. Eventually, she progressed to P90X and later discovered Zumba. The latter quickly became her favorite, and after three years of regular exercise, she has shed more than 100 pounds.
Nicole, now a certified Zumba instructor, teaches classes to children and adults. More like a dance party than a workout, Zumba pairs Latin dance moves with upbeat, international rhythms and resistance training. After overcoming her own battle against weight gain, Nicole welcomes anyone regardless of their ability. She encourages her students to follow her lead during class. But if that proves to be too great a challenge, then it's fine to just keep moving by imitating your favorite congressman being chased by a bee.
