Meet Our Class Instructors
My name is Sylvia Kolakowski. 18 years ago, I moved to Mississippi. Little did I realize how much the food is fried here. I began to gain weight pretty quick feeling depressed, sluggish and extremely tired. A friend of mine recommended that I join her at a local church that offered workout classes 3 times a week. Slowly the weight began to come off and I was feeling like my old self. When Zumba was introduced , I felt that I had finally found my passion. I’ve been certified since 2013 and teach in various locations in the area. I’m a perfect example that age is just a number! I you want to stay active and healthy, find what you love and keep moving!
