LIZA PEZZIMENTI- HARBOUR

OWNER/ ZUMBA®, YOGA TRAPEZE®, BARRE INTENSITY®, VERAFLOW® Instructor/ LMT/ Group Fitness AFAA Certified

​I started teaching Zumba in 2006 right after the birth of our fourth child. Though not in terrible shape I was feeling like some of the best years of my life were kind of slipping away in a physical state of mediocrity. I was a member of a local gym and piddled around on an elliptical and an exercise class here and there. Nothing especially struck me as wanting to push myself to work harder and I was constantly catching myself watching the clock. Having been reared in a home where physical activity and taking care of one's self was a normal part of life, I knew I wanted something more but hadn't yet really found my niche.

Erich Courtad

Certified Personal Trainer & Sports Nutritionist/ C.O.R.E. FIT Trainer

In my mid to late 30’s I decided to start a healthier lifestyle. I started exercising a few times a week and then slowly changing my eating habits. Now I am in my 40’s and it has become a passion of mine to be the best version of myself.

I graduated from UD in 2000. I have done many things in my career from factory work to restaurant management to a small business owner. I am currently on an Education Commission, the 1st Chair for the Home and School Board, and one of the board members for a small software company. I’m able to devote my time to these organizations because I am also a stay at home dad. I love being home with our 2 year old daughter and being available to coach our 10 year old and 12 year old boys in all their various sports and activities. When I am not busy doing all of those things I love to get out and play soccer!

Having a healthy mind, body and soul are extremely important to me which is why I have recently acquired a certification in personal training and sports nutrition. My goals for this class are full body workouts for strength and balance with bits of cardio mixed into the workout. I will also be working on healthy lifestyle changes. I am really excited to share my knowledge with all of you to achieve your goals.

Katelyn Gibson

JUMPS Instructor

Hi there!  I started coming to Salsa City Fitness in 2016 after graduating from Miami University. I was looking for a way to get in shape since I no longer live walking distance from the campus rec center. A friend of mine and fellow instructor, Mikayla Gao, (shout out) told me about Salsa City and invited me to come to Zumba with her. I had taken a hip hop dance exercise class at Miami and loved it so I thought I’d give it a go. After my first Zumba class I LOVED it! The atmosphere and community I have gained through Salsa City has been unreal! After a lot of contemplation, I decided to get Zumba certified in November of 2017! I now teach JUMPS and sub ZUMBA classes at Salsa City! I have also created a health account on Instagram (@healthykg13) *shameless plug* to keep me accountable and to hopefully encourage others on their journey to a healthier lifestyle.  I am so excited to start teaching and spreading the joy and fun that Zumba brought into my life with others!

In addition, having a degree in Marketing and experience with web design I teamed up with Liza to help take Salsa City to the next level when it came to marketing strategies. One of the first things we talked about was revamping the website and so what you are on right now is the new product! We are constantly working on improvements and have a lot more exciting things to come!

Can’t wait to see you in class!

Colleen Moore

Belly Dance Instructor

Middle Eastern dance, more popularly known as belly dance, is a beautiful and expressive art form that has been passed from mother to daughter and woman to woman for a thousand generations.  Not only can it help you burn calories (up to 350 calories per hour) and tone muscle, it is also a wonderful activity for developing fitness, grace, a sense of timing and self-esteem.

Colleen has been belly dancing for over 15 years. She performs with her troupe, Cairo Mystique, in various locations throughout the Miami Valley. She has studied Middle Eastern dance, also known as Raqs Sharqi, in classes held by various local artists like Kira (of Kira’s Oasis) and Zattana Al-Naseem (of Troupe Roja) and in workshops from national artists including Aziza, Bozenka, Karim Nagi and many more. Her dance is heavily influenced by the Egyptian Cabaret style and fuses elements of tribal and modern dance to create unique and fun choreographies and performances. 

Colleen began teaching beginner belly dance classes at a studio in Centerville, OH, in 2012. She brought her class to Salsa City Fitness in 2014.  In Colleen’s class, students will learn basic belly dance moves, proper posture, and some stretching techniques. She will provide structured drills of foundational movements to help students develop good form and technique as well as creative dance combinations to use for practice or performances. Colleen’s friendly and upbeat instruction fuses traditional Middle Eastern music with more contemporary songs to create an atmosphere that is casual and fun. All levels and background of dance are welcome, even those with no experience at all!
