Featured Instructor: Jami Wright

Jami began dancing as a young girl with tap, ballet and jazz classes. Throughout her school years she jamicompeted in various sports including volleyball, track and basketball.  As a native Montanan, Jami enjoys several outdoor activities with her husband, Jason, and their two kids.  Their favorite pursuits include camping, boating, hiking, and generally being active across Montana’s beautiful landscapes.

After becoming a Mom, Jami explored dance fitness classes as a student in order to stay fit.  She liked the classes so much that she was inspired to make them a consistent part of her life by becoming a certified Red Hot Dance Fitness (RHDF) Instructor in January 2013.  Today, Jami enjoys connecting with her students through dance and helping them each find their own inner dance goddess!  Her favorite part about teaching is “watching students having fun, expressing themselves and building their confidence in a comfortable atmosphere.”

“My students enjoy RHDF classes for the easy-to-learn moves to chart-topping singles and new choreography every week that keeps classes fresh and upbeat. Overall, students say RHDF classes are a great way to have fun and burn calories at the same time!” You can GET SWEATY with Jami at The Source in Missoula, MT

Featured Instructor: Annie Johnson

This stay at home mom of two (June Tru 1 and Eva 3) never thought she would be a fitness instructor. “I always thought instructors were in the gym 24/7 and had to have the perfect body.”

Luckily Annie’s mom knew differently and signed her up for a Zumba training in February 2011 for her 22nd Birthday. “I started teaching right away. When I heard about Red Hot Dance Fitness I got really excited. My favorite dance routines in class were always top charted songs and to fill my entire class playlist with these, was a dream come true! In July 2013 I took Red Hot Dance and Barre Teacher Training, this was just a few weeks after having my son. I knew this was something I wanted to be apart of and if I had to nurse my new born baby during training I was going to do it!”

Now a certified instructor in both Red Hot Dance Fitness and Red Hot Barre she has packed classes is blown away by the response of members. One of Annie’s students adds, “I love Red Hot dance! Its a fun way to relieve my stress and Annie makes it easy to learn the moves.” That is one of the reasons Annie loves teaching this format as well.  “I am so glad (my director) brought the Red Hot program to Harbor Square Athletic Club and I would encourage other gyms and studios to bring Red hot to their business as well!”

“My experience teaching Red Hot Barre has been amazing, it’s helped me get in shape after gaining weight and losing muscle while pregnant. I don’t think my butt and legs have ever been this strong before! Hearing about my students getting results from my barre class is my absolute joy.”

“Let’s Werk and GET SWEATY!” Check out Annie’s classes at Harbor Square Athletic Club and Shake It Off Fitness

Shake it Off Fitness – Featured Facility

Shake it off Fitness studio owner Sheree James went from teaching classes to renting space at various dance studios on a per class basis to eventually making one studio her home.  She invested in her new space with some paint, a ballet barre, mirrors, a sound system and speakers and quickly began running a variety of classes at what now is known as Shake it Off Fitness.

Sheree spoke to us about her team at SIO, “I’ve branded my business primarily with high-energy work-outs from instructors that are out-going and really care about people.  I built my classes with my personality, music selection, high-energy and high impact workouts and I wanted instructors who would be willing and able to do the same. I’ve made some mistakes along the way in instructor selections where it just didn’t end-up being the right fit for the business and/or the instructor.  I’m at a point in the business where I have the right team, the right balance, and the right number of classes and options for a small biz.” Realizing the huge demand for barre classes, Sheree and her instructing team recently attended a Red Hot Barre Instructor Training and now they offer Barre classes which helps diversify class options at SIO.
