Alisa Calzonzi has been in dance her whole life and I'm fitness for over a decade. She began teaching fitness classes for her YMCA after a lack of programming at her branch was affecting their membership in a community that needed lifestyle changes the most. She began with Zumba Fitness ® and that led to teaching and becoming certified in strength training and eventually Pilates (among other various formats). She is passionate about helping people find their happy place in the fitness world.
