In 2009, Jerod became an active volunteer and student at his local dance studio, Heartbeat House. At that time he decided to make a change in his life for the better, and found himself doing one of the things he’s always loved: DANCE. His love for dance and the classes offered there led him into getting actively involved in several dance workout formats where he put in hard work in transforming himself from student to teacher. Jerod got involved in Latin Jam Workout, shortly thereafter he became a licensed Zumba Instructor. In addition to being certified in both Latin Jam Workout and Zumba, he is now a certified instructor for an urban-based world beats fitness program based out of Northern California that’s growing across the nation called U-Jam Fitness.
