Instructor Spotlight – Alicia Arroyo

ABC Fit Studio is so excited to have Alica Arroyo join our team of instructors! Alicia has been teaching group fitness for 14 years and has been licensed to teach Zumba for a little over 13 years. In that span of time, she has also taught most group fitness formats that include sculpting, barre, mat pilates, and just about any dance format. As a Zumba instructor, Alicia was licensed to present for Zumba in 2010 as a “Zumba Jammer” teaching original choreography to other instructors to help provide them with fresh original material for their own Zumba classes. This included hosting 3-hour workshops at least once a month, in addition to teaching about a dozen weekly Zumba classes (pre-covid). Alicia has hosted nearly 200 of these workshops. She also appeared on the Zumba DVD in 2010 and many promotional TV spots for Zumba Fitness. Alicia has also had some pilates reformer training through Balance Body and has been AFAA certified since 2006. Alicia lives in Rancho Santa Margarita with her husband of 26 years and has four children, three sons, and one daughter. Her two oldest boys are away at college. Make sure to hop in for some Strength+Balance+Core, Zumba, or Booty Blast on Tuesday & Thursday mornings with Alicia!

I joined ABC looking for a yoga studio but found pilates was more of my speed. This is not just a place to exercise but an environment where friends come together to get fit, healthy, and happy.
I love the instructors who take good care of everyone. I always get the best encouragement possible! I also like the small class sizes for anything from yoga and pilates to Zumba and TRX.
Thanks, ABC Fitness Studio, for making being healthy fun!

When my wife convinced me to try ABC Fitness, little did I know it would become an almost daily fixture in my life.
I enjoy multiple classes weekly and each is very special in approach to strength, balance, core, flexibility, and overall fitness. Feeling better and stronger physically leads to more enjoyment in all activities.
I feel stronger and fitter and look forward to continuing to rely on ABC Fitness as an integral part of my life.

I’ve been doing pilates for almost 3 years now, and I feel stronger and have improved functionally in my daily activities
I was recommended by my physical therapist when I was a patient with many joint problems. My PT thought Pilates would help me, and it did!
I feel stronger, and have a better tone, range of motion, and a stronger core. I can get up from a low sofa with less effort now as my core plus legs are stronger; I owe all these improvements to Pilates. My teacher is patient and kind, always helpful — thank you!

ABC has a great variety of group classes, which allows me to take multiple classes and challenge my body in different ways. It keeps the workouts fun and interesting. It helps me reduce stress and keeps me strong!

I certainly enjoyed the Pilates session with Charlotte — it provides some pain relief, increased flexibility, and makes me want to be more active.

I have been with ABC for about 7 years, and its biggest benefit has to be no more lower back pain and much more flexibility. Love it here!
— Mike P.
I love ABC Fitness!!! Over the years, I’ve worked out at many places, but this is the first one I absolutely love — so much so that I usually come 7 days a week! What is so special are the small classes that mean lots of individual attention, the extraordinarily knowledgeable instructors, and the nice variety of classes. It has been a huge benefit to my well-being.
