For the first time ever, Fly Girl with Lisa Marie is coming to Miami, Friday, February 23rd at Nago Academy in Miami.
What is Fly Girl? Who remembers watching “In Living Color” on TV wishing you were one of the dancers who called themselves the Fly Girls. And let’s face it, the hip hop music they danced to, til this day, is your favorite style of hip hop to get down to. This is where Jennifer Lopez got her big break as a professional dancer and still the fly-est girl we know in the entertainment industry.
Lisa Marie brings your inner Fly Girl and breaks down dance moves that takes you back to the 90s and beyond. All the music we sang and danced to what made the 90s such an amazing era in street dance.
And the best news is that you don’t have to be a professional to enjoy this event! Lisa Marie is known to make dance moves simple, easy and fun while working up a sweat. So grab your girlfriends, and even your guy friends (who said guys weren’t fly?) and don’t miss Fly Girl with Lisa Marie in Miami!

After 2 months of personal training with Bobby at The Custom Fitness Institute, the final results are now in. If you have been following lunasol vida on Instagram, you would have seen the workouts I was doing at my training sessions. If you haven’t seen it, have no fear because I will be posting it on this blog to recap the type of workouts I did to burn fat & gain muscles. After this experience, I learned what I have to do to get rid of the stubborn fat that doesn’t want to leave, the proper way to build muscle and can’t wait to share my knowledge to everyone who wants to do the same.
Watch the video and see how much fat has been lost and how much muscle was gained. Learn why it’s so important to take body measurements rather than weighing yourself on the scale to determine your progress. And as always, stay focused, stay active and never be afraid to ask for help in reaching your fitness goals.
Yes, it’s true… I can dance for hours & run for miles, but ask me to go to the gym to lift weights and I’m lost (and will probably end up in the group-fitness studio instead). It’s not my favorite activity and I’m sure many can relate.
If this sounds familiar, don’t give up! Find a friend who will push you and motivate you to hit the weights. I decided to turn to my friend, Bobby Jackson, who is a professional personal trainer and owner of The Custom Fitness Institute in Pompano Beach, FL. Personal trainers are trained to guide you and help you take your fitness to the next level.
First step to a personal training program should always be a Fitness Assessment. In this video, you will see what a Fitness Assessment is and the proper way to measure your body fat percentage & body mass index (BMI).
Wish me luck!
Now here’s a little story I’ve got to tell, about 2 bad chinos you know so well… ha! (If you know the original rhyme, comment below for a chance to win a special prize from me!)
Well this China (a nickname my hubby calls me) decided to audition for a spot in the Fly Girl 101 session, led by the talented Lisa Marie, at this year’s Zumba® convention. In order to audition, you had to learn the routine she choreographed and add the 2 last counts of 8 of your own stylo to the song “I Wanna Sex You Up” by Color Me Badd…. what?!?! I was all in. I wanted to keep it real to my Miami roots, where graffiti is considered colorful art and bust out my gold hoops, nameplate, cross & chain I’ve had since the 90’s. The only thing is that Miami is 20 min for where I live now and the deadline was like tomorrow. Thank God for #FATVillage in downtown Fort Lauderdale where the art culture is blooming. I waited for Chino (my nickname for my hubby aka Jimmy) to come home from work Thursday evening and off we went to go film the video.
Now it was time to film. The sun was setting but man this weather lately has been super hot & humid so I didn’t want to take too long to record it. The idea was to keep it smooth but hit the movements to make it look clean. I am a bit of a perfectionist and did the routine a couple of times… well… more like several times before I was content with the final product. Jimmy saw them all the same and wanted to call it a day. But my eyes could see when my arms weren’t where they should be, or a movement wasn’t as strong as I wanted it to be. It was the last shot that I was like, ok… this is it… if it’s not “perfect” in my eyes, then there is nothing I can do about it because it’s hot, he’s hungry, and I’m getting tired. The last shot ended up being the one I submitted and most content with. Finally! Let’s go home.
Now time to edit! Not only did I edit the video to add my name and title of the video, I also edited the song to have a short intro and cut the right section of the song that I danced to. Took awhile but I enjoy editing (not always but this one was fun for me!) Uploaded it on YouTube and emailed it as instructed. I was excited more than I was nervous. It was fun to film something I could relate to, something that is totally me, and the style of dance I grew up dancing especially in Miami.
A week later is when I got the email saying, Congratulations FLY GIRL!!! What?!?! Honestly, tears of happiness came as I called Jimmy to share the good news. We did this together and together we celebrated. Now, I’m sharing the good news to my students and followers. Thanks to everyone who encouraged and believed in me. Can’t wait to share on what’s to come.
