Terre Pruitt is a Certified Nia White Belt* and a Licensed Nia Teacher.
A couple of years ago I was sitting on the couch and I made a comment, like I had always done, about being fat or out of shape (I don’t even remember what I said). My husband must have been sick of hearing it because he said, “Why don’t you do something about it?” —-ARGH!!!— For once he was right. Why did I just complain about it and never do anything? So, I bought a Turbo Jam DVD and have been working out every since.
As I started working out I realized that people need to move. Our bodies were made to move. The saying, “Use it or lose it” applies to movement, strength, balance, agility, all that stuff that goes along with our bodies. So I decided that I wanted to do something to help people, but I didn’t know what. I know I am not the stereo typical Personal Trainer type person, but I thought that I could get certified as one and start there. I am a certified personal trainer, and I would love to work with people as a trainer to help them get healthy, but it wasn’t until I found Nia that I felt I could really help a larger number of people and in a totally complete—mind/body—way.
I love to practice Nia. I love the way I feel after I have “done something Nia.” But I also still enjoy other types of workouts. I think that people need to find what they enjoy because they need to keep moving their bodies their ENTIRE lives. There is so much information out there about health, wellness, and fitness, I am learning what I can and thought I could share some tidbits with you.
Terre is also a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Council on Strength and Fitness as well as a certified PiYo Instructor.
