Maggie Zoeller is a relatively new instructor here at Elite Sports Clubs, but she’s no fitness novice! Fun fact, Maggie is also a Milwaukee Bucks Dancer. Here’s your chance to get to know her a little better and learn about her health and fitness philosophy.
Meet Maggie Zoeller:
What classes do you currently teach?
Hi Low Cardio and The Fix
How long have you been teaching group exercise?
What made you want to start teaching group exercise?
I have always had a passion to move and be active and wanted to share that with others. I took a Body Attack class in high school for the first time and immediately fell in love with the energy of the class, the positive drive to push one another, and the acceptance of anyone and everyone to walk into class. Group exercise to me isn’t just about getting a great physical workout in, it’s also about leaving class feeling emotionally a part of something special and sharing it with one another. It is way to make ourselves not only look better, but feel better too.
What is your favorite part about teaching your class(es)?
My favorite part about teaching group exercise classes is seeing the change in the members’ physical and emotional self over time from taking the class. Nothing beats seeing the joy of a member who feels they have successfully improved physically and emotionally after taking group exercise classes.
What’s your favorite song or style of music to teach to?
My favorite style of music would be Club/Dance. I feel the intensity and beats of the music being so much energy to class!
What is your favorite exercise to do in your class?
How do you stay active outside of your own classes?
Outside of class I dance professionally. I dance with the Milwaukee Bucks. I also train in aerial silks. Outside if my own classes I love to take as many other group exercise classes as I can, lift, and go for runs!
What advice do you give people who are coming into your classes for the first time?
To come to class with an open mind and to just keep moving. The first class should never be easy, it should be challenging and make you want to come back for more.
What personal advice do you give someone who is looking to get to a healthier point in their life?
My advice is to stay active, eat smart, get sleep, and take time for yourself. Taking the time to be on your own and reflect on what you are satisfied with and what you want to still accomplish. Doing this can inspire you to take that leap, and give you that push that you need in order to accomplish what you desire. Only you can make the change you want to see in yourself to improve your health!
