Since childhood, I have always been a very active person. Performing for my family was my favorite thing to do to make them smile. My love for the arts, music and dance was born during my dance rehearsals, at my local dance school, and my theater classes. During my high school years, my favorite hobbies were dancing, in my local community dance crews, and fitness training. Yes guys, I was devoted to be active! While making physical activity a regular part of my daily life, I got to meet and work with famous professionals in the dance and theater field of my country. Then, when I entered the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico in 1997, I auditioned for the group, “The Magic Dancers” of this institution, and at the same time, I also managed to take extracurricular credits in health and fitness. Being selected a member of this dancing group gave me the amazing chance of training in different dance styles and of performing around my country. But my love and passion were sticked to my Hispanic roots on the Latin dance style, so I kept getting trained on this specific style over the years, besides working part-time as a model for a promotional marketing company in San Juan Puerto Rico while studying towards my bachelor’s degree in business administration.
After graduating from the university, and already living in the United States of America , I got the exceptional opportunity of being introduced to ZUMBA fitness, in 2007, by a friend. I remember her telling me, “You have to try this, and I’m sure you will fit perfect on it. So I tried it, and since then I haven’t stopped exercising for the good of myself and others under this unique and fun ZUMBA style. A few years ago, I got officially certified by the ZUMBA Institute, and the rest is history. Now, I have to confess that with the persistence in ZUMBA practice, I got to realize three unchangeable aspirations in my life. And these are… my passion for dance and music, my desire to help people, and my craving to stay healthy. At last, I have found the way to mix them all together, and so, every single day, I push myself to the extreme, enjoying magnificent results.
So, this is it you guys! My name is Arodis Machado, but my friends call me Ary, and I am a ZUMBA instructor (ZB, ZB2, ZT, C'09) and Hip-Hop Hustle Instructor. I am certified by the American Heart Association as CPR/AED and member of IDEA Health Fitness Association.
I am making the difference in this world! What about you? I’m sure you have a unique personality, so now’s the time to make a real and healthy resolution. Become part of ZUMBA FITNESS PARTY. Transform yourself, and pretty soon you’ll be proud of The New You. What are you waiting for?
