Philosophy
Hi fitness friends!  My name is Kristina Cipolina and I love being a  fitness instructor!  In 2008 I gave birth to two very healthy and big twins!  I decided that working out at home was not for me and to try a group fitness class!  I attended a Zumba class and within the first song I was hooked.  I attended this studio for Zumba and other group fitness classes and loved the community and outpouring of support from other clients.  I was approached by the studio owner that she wished for me to join her team and get certified in Zumba.  This journey then blossomed into more certifications.  My next Love was Piloxing and I received that certification in 2014.  Then came Piloxing Barre later that year and my final grand certification is Piloxing Knockout that I received in 2015.  I have another love of running and I have completed two half marathons and an Amazing 10 mile run representing the Army that was a true honor to complete in Washington DC.  I have taken a few month off from teaching due to being diagnosed with breast cancer.  I have finished Chemotherapy and truly love the thought of teaching again and turning the page on this new chapter in my life. I am honored to now be part of Waverly Fitness and I welcome you to come try my classes and join me on this healthy journey!

Philosophy:
Hello! My name is Amanda Smith and I am a music teacher! I have the best “gig” in the world: I’m a stay at home mom of two crazy little boys.  I also teach music privately and am a professional musician in the area.  I love cardio classes; especially Pound and Zumba. I usually am in a class singing at the top of my lungs.  It helps me remember to breathe. True story! If you asked me a few months ago if I would see myself teaching in a fitness studio or gym the answer would be no.  However Zumba created an amazing program for little ones and their caregivers called Zumbini that I had to become certified in it! There’s nothing like this in our area and I’m excited to bring this amazing program to Fitness with Friends!

  • Zumbini

​Philosophy: 
"Everyone’s journey is unique so there is no “one size fits all” approach to healthy living! When it comes to helping people with their health and happiness my goal has always been to get that person to the best version of themselves through the best means for that person. It’s about finding out the person’s needs, wants, home/work environments, and abilities to create a healthy living plan that will work for them. Within a healthy living plan there needs to be balance with nutrition, strength training, cardio, AND mental well-being! They all complement each other and it is about striking that balance for the individual."

Philosophy:
​I want everyone to have fun while working out! There really can be something for everyone! I always tend to go for workouts that are driven by music. Music pulls people in and helps them to forget about the workout and focus on the FUN! Zumba got me started, but I plan to continue my fitness knowledge in different avenues so that I can help a larger group of people! I think if you can find a workout you enjoy, it makes it 10x easier to exercise!
