Gorica Santos, BSN, MBA Profile
I was born in Europe and have been living in NH since 2002. I have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Pre-Med, as well as, an MBA. I am certified in Nutrition, Metabolism & Hormones. In the past 14 years, I have attended numerous trainings and workshops related to fitness & health and have been coaching women from all walks of life.
In addition, I am a Licensed Zumba Fitness Instructor & am certified in CPR & First Aid. Zumba has been one of the best things to come into my life and I enjoy sharing it others.
I am a member of the Zumba® Instructors’ Network (ZIN), and am forever learning and mastering new Zumba® moves and choreography with the help of the wonderful people at Zumba® Fitness
The best part of Zumba®, to me, is the lives that I’ve touched, and the people who have reached deep down into my soul and friendships that have been created over the years. I am a better person because of what I do. It thrills me to see the personal growth that my students achieve through simple “fun”! Many come to reap the physical aspects of Zumba®, but so many have come to “de-stress”, to”recover”, to gain confidence, and heal. Many of you came to your first class a bit shy, unsure and a little backward. Now…you are my “front row” divas. You have learned that letting go and having fun is “good for you”. Zumba® is good for your soul. It’s good for your body. And it’s GREAT for your mind.
