My goal in creating MirZuk Fitness is to help women take time to create the energy they need to fully engage in life, while looking and feeling fantastic! I’ve created this business around my dream to make fitness available to those who are ready to take the next step towards living a healthy life, full of vitality, in a body that they are proud to be in. If you are committed to your health, then I am here to help.
Here’s the background story on how I came to be where I am today. My mother put me into dance classes as soon as I could walk. Fast forward to high school graduation. I had been dancing all that time in between and at age 19 I became a professional dance teacher. The performance aspect of my dance background led to acting and singing as well. I performed in several musicals throughout high school, college and beyond. In 1990 I was a student at New World School of the Arts in Miami as a dance major. I had to take several classes, one of which was Pilates. Little did I know at that time that Pilates would become a trend and that I would be teaching in NYC a decade later.
I became a certified group fitness instructor in 1997 when I was looking for a way to expand my horizons, blow up my comfort zone, and make more money while performing in a version of “Oklahoma” at a local dinner theater. I made enough money to make a move, and decided- Hey why not pursue acting in NYC!?
I took the leap. The first job I got in NYC was as a waitress at a bar in Chelsea. One of my new friends there was a Personal Trainer. It was right up my alley and I was inspired. Since I had been a group fitness instructor and a dance teacher, I figured I could make the switch to training. I walked into a NYSC and was hired on the spot as a ‘floor trainer’. To make my way up in the training ranks I tagged along with other trainers and met lots of members, growing my network and my knowledge at the same time.
I got a few clients from NYSC and found that I was in love with helping people in this way. I loved working one on one with people to help them become healthier in all aspects of their lives. I loved seeing the results of our work together. I dropped acting altogether because helping people live healthier lives was so much more rewarding. I was in LOVE with this new life!
From NYSC I moved on to Synergy Fitness on 81st and 3rd. I loved working there and had many clients of all different walks of life. I settled in happily and stayed there for 2 years. Managers came and went and started to make big messes of everything. I decided to take the leap and go out on my own. I worked nonstop and soon hit the ceiling of how many clients I could work with. I despised turning people away, so I figured I needed to clone myself. I met with other trainers who were as eager to help people as I was and started building my team.
From there I began working as a Group Fitness Instructor again at Equinox Fitness Clubs so that I could affect more people in a positive way, be more interactive, stay current, and challenge myself.
And here I am today running the business of my dreams! For the longer version of my start in this business, click here . I have several blog posts that describe in detail how I created the business. I love what I do and feel like the luckiest person alive when my clients reach their goals. Cheers to you!
