Janice Zito was born with a love for dance and fitness, and a passion for teaching. In 1994, she became certified by AFAA as a Group Exercise Instructor. This experience motivated her to pursue an education in the field. Janice studied Exercise Science and received a Bachelors degree in Education from Adelphi University in Garden City, New York. During her time at Adelphi she was also trained and certified by the American College Of Sports Medicine as a Health and Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer. In addition, she worked in the on site Cardiac Rehabilitation program. Janice landed her first full time job at the NBC Health and Fitness Center at Rockefeller Plaza in New York, where she taught Step, Kickboxing, Circuit, Hip Hop, and Weight/Strength training classes. This was an amazingly fun and unforgettable experience! In 2000, Janice took a journey to the west coast and moved to Seattle where she became certified to teach Les Mills Body Pump. During this time Janice switched gears and pursued a teaching career. She became a certified Montessori Elementary teacher and later received a Masters degree in Special Education back at Adelphi University. She’s currently a licensed ZUMBA and ZUMBA Step Instructor. Her favorite thing about group exercise is connecting with the participants and witnessing the transformations they make, both mind and body!
