Lenecia is a RIPPED and Zumba instructor at the CRC who has been teaching for 9 years. Lenecia works in the UC Athletic Department supporting our student-athletes' mental health and performance. Her favorite part about working at the CRC is the accessibility and staff - "I love the fact that the UC Campus Rec is a short walk from my full-time job, and the staff and instructors are extremely helpful and professional!" She enjoys spending time with her husband and dogs, watching college sports and creating in her free time. Lenecia's best advice for a first-time participant is, "Group fitness classes can be intimidating at first, especially if it's a format that you're completely unfamiliar with.  I encourage anyone trying my classes for the first time to focus on having fun. Spending 45-minutes to an hour on your physical health a few times a week has a positive impact on your mental health as well - it's one of the best forms of self-care!"
