Check out our amazing instructors! We will be adding more information on our instructors as the session goes on. Please check back soon for updates!
Andy Regalmuto - I have been a fitness instructor since 1988. I teach Spin classes and have been doing so since 2000, but my favorite form of exercise is Zumba! I have been teaching Zumba since 2009 and I love it. It’s a great workout for all people, all ages, and all fitness levels. It’s really exercise in disguise and you do not need to know how to dance. My other interests are: Member of the Rescue Riders-Advanced Accident Scene Management and First Aid for motorcycle trauma, Member of the Patriot Guard Riders, and a Member of the Warrior Watch Riders. My biggest accomplishment is being a Prostate Cancer Survivor since 2000.
Julie Wilson - I found my passion for helping women working at Curves in 2004. I became the full time manager and spent my days training women on the equipment and keeping them motivated through their workouts. In 2007, not long after losing my husband and gaining fifty pounds I began working at Women's Workout World. I immediately started teaching classes and to my delight, losing weight! I was trained to teach lifting, toning, abs, step and floor aerobics, Body Sync and small group functional classes. I also spent many hours working individually with members on their goals and training them on the correct form to use machines as well as free weights. I lost forty pounds and gained more muscle than I'd ever had in my 40 yrs. This life changing experience has created a desire for me to help women have the same opportunity and I knew the next step was to get my certification for personal training. Having accomplished that goal in Feb 2013, I started teaching lifting and toning classes for women five days a week. I'm so excited to be joining Salt Creek and continue to inspire women to stay fit and healthy.
Tammy Sopoci - My name is Tammy and I am a mother of three teenage girls. My passion is to help people in fitness. I am currently certified in Turbo Kick, Piyo, Hip Hop Hustle, Piloxing & S.T.R.I.D.E which is a Certification with Shaun T. My mission is to physically and mentally empower women through fitness.
Kim Lyszczarczyk- In 2009 I decided to take the leap from fitness student to teacher by becoming a licensed Zumba instructor and it was the best choice I've ever made. Since then, my passion for leading a healthy lifestyle and helping my students find the fun in fitness has grown exponentially. This thirst for professional growth has led me to become licensed in several other formats, including Zumba Toning, Zumba Step and Yoga. Coming from the competitive and stressful world of corporate finance, my daily fitness class was always the highlight - and outlet - of the day. Having that experience leads me to prepare classes that are mentally, physically and emotionally stimulating for my students. I know how important this hour is in your day and I want you to leave my class with a renewed sense of energy and a happy spirit!
Terri Villarreal: Terri Villarreal is a seasoned fitness instructor and personal trainer, but her first and long lasting love is teaching Zumba. Terri brings a mix of traditional Latin rhythms with a surprise splash of pop and/or country music to her Zumba classes. Terri’s classes are fun and energetic and appropriate for any fitness level.
Molly Siegel: I am a fitness enthusiast! I'm always striving to find new ways to keep exercising fun. Group fitness has always been my number one mode to exercise. I'm a big fan of circuit and interval training and also incorporating kickboxing moves into routines. I love the positive energy that's in a room of people exercising together. Since I haven't always been fit, I totally get what it's like to start a fitness journey. We're all in it together, working out to feel good and improve our own health, no matter how short or long of a time we've been active. Aside from my love of being a fitness instructor, I'm also a part- time elementary art teacher and mom of 3 young, very active, boys. Life is busy and great! I'm very excited to be working at Salt Creek!
