Chris Lamanna is a passionate and dedicated student of the yogic arts. While attending college at Central Michigan University he felt called to something deeper, his disenchantment with life as he knew it led to a search for meaning. He spent many hours immersed in the study of religion, of alchemy and mythology, of yoga, tarot and astrology. His studies led him to develop a regular yoga practice which has evolved into a deeper connection with life itself which he yearns to share with others through the practices of yoga/meditation. He understands yoga as an art and science of refining the human organism starting with the gross(body)and moving to the subtle(spirit). Though he began practicing in his late teens, he received his 200 E-RYT yoga certification from The Yoga Studio of Seattle under Richard Schatchel in March of 2015. He is very excited to begin this new journey with Team Fit and looks forward to meeting many more teachers and students along his path.  












My name is Karen Green. I own a graphic design studio, and have 15 year old triplet boys. have struggled with my weight since I was in elementary school. When I was 13 years old, I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) which amongst other problems, makes it very difficult to lose/maintain weight. I went from being chubby, to fat, obese, morbidly obese, and finally super morbidly obese. I went on diet after diet, and would lose 50-100 pounds, but once I went “off” the diet, I would gain all the weight back, plus more. I didn’t want to exercise, because just getting up one flight of stairs had me huffing and puffing. It was in 2009, that my health started declining. My blood pressure went up, and was always in the neighborhood of 160/100. I had sleep apnea, chronic pain, chronic inflammation, GERD, and horrible headaches. I had blood work in the beginning of the year that indicated possible celiac disease, and from that point forward, I removed wheat from my diet. My pain and headaches went away, and I started breathing/feeling better. But my GERD, high blood pressure,and sleep apnea didn’t resolve. I decided that I needed more help than just diet, and decided to get a Lap-Band. I went in for all the tests, and failed each one miserably. Specifically, the Cardiac Stress test. I had to have a Cardiac Catheterization to see if there truly was calcifications in my heart. going to Zumba again. Once I was back, I knew it was time... and I went and got my certification to teach Zumba, and have been teaching ever since! Thankfully, the machine read my results wrong (because I was so large,the machine saw fat tissue as calcifications) I was finally cleared to get the Lap-Band, and had the surgery in August, 2009. I lost 100 pounds in the first six months, and then lost another 50 pounds in the next six months. I started exercising in August, 2010, by going to Zumba classes. In June 2011, I had lost 200 pounds, and had an arm-lift, breast-lift and tummy tuck. Once I was cleared to start exercising, I started going to Zumba again. Once I was back, I knew it was time... and I went and got my certification to teach Zumba, and have been teaching ever since!

My name is Angela Donnellon and I am a certified AFAA group instructor, licence in Zumba, Zumba Gold, Toning and Aqua and a Belly Dance instructor. I am from Ft Wayne Indiana and attended Indiana University for 2 years before joining the Army in 1986-1993. I moved to Michigan with husband who is from Eastpointe Michigan in 1995. I have a list of employment after getting out of service. I was a licence hair stylist, postal worker and eventually worked for Chrysler for over 8 years before taking the buyout to attend OCC for Exercise Science.
During my many employment I took an interest in any dance that was out of the norm. I loved to dance and at the time was an infomercial fanatic and had all the exercise craze video. I jumped on the Zumba ban wagon back in the early 2000s. I began to study Belly and Latin Dance in the year 2000. I began choreography routines for family reunions and job events held by employers. My hobby before attending school for Personal trainer was fitness, preferable dance but love boxing and kick boxing as well. My other hobby is working with Veteran in the UAW Veterans committee.
I starting attending Zumba classes around 2008 and became certified in May of 2010. I think for many of the trained dancer and dance lover, Zumba is an Godsend. We cant all be professional Dancer and make an living from it. So many tie it into fitness. It has given many who could or would not make a career out of dance a second chance, to do something they love for a living.
With that said, I am proud to be a part of the Team Fit team and hope to have a long successful relationship.
