What’s in a name?

What’s in a name?  When I first conceptualized LocoMotion Fitness it was based on my need for dance fitness classes that were low impact with smooth transitions and no twisting of the knees; i.e. safe for a knee replacement.  The name came from how I saw myself in the mirror during classes; the joy and passion were there, but the movements looked a little crazy, “loco.”  After beating my body up playing sports when I was younger and eventually having a total knee replacement, I just couldn’t move the way I did when I was 30.  In my mind, my body was as fluid, flexible, and on beat as it was 30 years ago; my mind’s eye obviously needed glasses.  So while the name LocoMotion Fitness reflects how this active older adult moves, it doesn’t reflect the types of classes I teach nor my local roots.

Pending registration of a new name, LocoMotion Fitness will be rebranded to reflect the classes and the company’s roots.  Along with a new look and name, I am hoping to add a new dance fitness format to the Zumba Gold® classes already available.

Stay tuned for more information regarding these exciting new changes.

Peer fitness for active seniors. Helping seniors stay active and independent. I am 60+ with a total knee replacement. I believe fitness should be safe and accessible to everyone. I became a certified and licensed fitness instructor in my mid 50s, after the knee replacement. It's all about turning what other people see as a weakness into a strength.
