Teressa (Tee) began her fitness journey somewhat unexpectedly when she was diagnosed with cardio-myopathy in 2009. At the advice of her doctor, she started working out and eating healthier with losing weight in mind. Enter Zumba Fitness! Zumba became part of Teressa's everyday routine and the benefits were unbelievable. "Soon my weight was coming off, my body felt strong and flexible again, and the biggest benefit of all was the improved cardiovascular effect." Another thing she didn't expect was that she would fall in love with Zumba Fitness and make bringing fitness to her hometown of Clarkston her passion. As owner/instructor of Mueva Fitness, she wants everyone to know that no matter what age or physical condition, it's never too late to make your health a priority. Teressa married her high school sweetheart in 1987. She has three boys; Zack 24, Tristan 22, and Evan 20.
Teressa received her Group Exercise certification from the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America in 2015. She is a licensed Zumba, Zumba Toning, and Zumba Gold instructor and a current member of the Zumba Instructor Network.
