My name is Jave Fierro. I am a wife, mother and certified Zumba® Instructor. My Warrior story begins in 2008 when my husband and I lost our son Jacob to Cancer. Amazingly enough, I found out I was pregnant with our little girl Audrey within days of his passing. 9 months and over 60lbs later…our little girl arrived. I knew I needed to lose the weight and find a healthier way to deal with the shattering loss of our son. So, I began taking Zumba® classes and eventually gained the confidence to become a certified instructor in Nov 2010. Fast forward to 2015 – when I was honored to meet Vanessa Barron. She encouraged me to become a Zumba® Instructor for Warrior Fitness. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. Every member of the Warrior Family comes to class with energy and enthusiasm which makes being an instructor both fun and easy. Much like Tchicaya’s story of strength through adversity, I feel as if the tragedy my husband I endured has made me a better instructor and a better warrior.
