In 2009, Jerod decided to make a change for the better with regards to his health and found himself doing one of the things he’s always loved to do, but was never trained in, and that was DANCE. His love of dance and visiting his local dance studio led him into getting actively involved in several dance workout formats where he decided to become an instructor. Jerod was actively involved in Latin Jam Workout, shortly thereafter he became a Licensed Zumba Instructor and holds a license to teach Basic 1, Zumba Step and STRONG by Zumba. He has participated and guest instructed in several fitness events throughout the City of Los Angeles.

“I try to inspire others through my journey as well as through daily quotes and affirmations that either I make up or find and want to share and put out in the universe. Come along with me on my journey—feel free to discuss anything with me—I love conversing with good people who have goals and direction in their life.”
“It takes one voice to motivate the uninspired.”
