I am a C6 tetraplegic paralyzed from the midchest down due to a car accident in 1995. Outside of physical therapy, I had never really thought about fitness very much until I gained a lot of weight after I had my two children (in 2003 and 2005). I went to our local YMCA to see if there was anything I could do to work out, lose weight and get myself back into physi- cal shape. I tried Zumba® and fell in love with the music and the fact that I was moving my body and having fun. Before I knew it, I was losing weight and gain- ing confidence, endurance and strength.
