MANA Wahine Fitness

MANA: true mana (strength) never passes away it is handed down from one generation to the next.

WAHINE: carrier of life, woman. She who embodies the moon through its seasons.

My Hawaiian-ness allows me to see everything through cultural filters. As I stand in the 40th year & 7 children cycle of my life I prayed, “What will it take to move forward?” MANA… not my own strength but that of every women who pulses within my DNA. My grandmothers who made it through WW2, The Great Depression, the overthrow of Queen Liliuokalani and it is their strength that I will rely on to make better choices.

This idea inspired me to create a program which combines my Zumba® classes with Plate by Zumba™ and mix in some incentives. The motivational energy is MANA Wahine Fitness. It starts with the female but will flow into the family, tribe, community and anyone who believes in wellness. Health can sustain a movement and awareness will become the catalyst of a nation. You can quote me on that!

Get ready to dig deep & stay consistent. The only thing you’ll loose is calories (wink, wink) Everyone can participate…
🗻 Gym workout: Make a plan.

Month 1 Honeymoon month where everything is new and exciting. Plan, join, create and start your workouts along with meal prep.

Month 2 Midlife Crisis month when life gets in the way and it feels harder and harder to stick to your schedule. Don’t give up. This is a great time to collage a vision board with pictures of your future self.

Month 3 What Now month, you might notice that the old schedule isn’t working like it use to. No worries this happens to all of us. This is when you switch-up your workout for something that’s a little more demanding. You can do it.

Month 4 Back to Month 1 except you’re taking it to the next level adding weights, reps or a more advanced PT. Then move through each month always increasing or changing your workout routine. You don’t want your muscles to become complacent.

    Me and Rhiannon have been staying committed to working out every week since January 12th and on the 1st of February we joined Zumba also on the 1st started a AB Challenge. We find it easier to stay committed with a partner. I have done challenges before but I like having someone to workout with because there is no room for excuses. I too have 7 children. My youngest are 10 year old twins. I want to be able to be a mommy who they can look up to and do Zumba with. ❤
