In 1996 I attempted to acquire a Personal Trainer position in one of the largest chains of coed health clubs in Chicago. There were no openings near me. I found myself walking past Women's Workout World. My sister, Imelda, told me to see if they had any openings. Upon inquiring inside, I was offered a management position because of my degree in management. Instead, I accepted a position as Class Instructor until a Personal Training position became available. I taught aerobics, cardio kickboxing, resist –a –ball and step classes for approximately 5 months.
