Courtney Weiss 

Physical fitness and activity has always been a big part of Courtney’s life. She grew up dancing, cheerleading and playing softball. She even went on to join the dance team in college, competing at a national level. After college, she began running and taking fitness classes at a local gym and fell in love. Soon after, she received her certifications in Group Exercise and Personal Training. After leaving a career in Corporate Finance, Courtney decided that fitness was her true calling. Courtney started SWEAT because she wanted a first-rate group exercise and personal training studio in Shawnee. She has over 8 years of experience in personal training and group exercise instruction. Her motto is “No one ever drowned in SWEAT!”

Megan grew up in Kansas City, Kansas "an original Dotte", and graduated from Bishop Ward High School.  After graduation, she went to Benedictine College in Atchison, KS (Go Ravens!).   There she played volleyball for BC and graduated with her B.A. in Secondary Education and Biology.   After college, Megan was the high school biology teacher for Piper High School for 6 years.  During those 6 years, Megan was also Piper High School's head dance coach and assistant swimming coach.   By day, she was a teacher, by night she taught group exercise classes at the YMCA.  She then moved to Iowa in 2008, where her fitness career really took off.  She taught Zumba at the YMCA of Greater Des Moines, the Ankeny Community Education program, and also taught Zumba classes for Meredith Corp.  Last June, she moved back to KC after 3 years and now she is ready to Zumba her heart out again in Shawnee!

Megan has always had a passion for dance, grew up dancing, and has always loved fitness.  She has been a group exercise fitness Instructor for now 7 years, and has been a Zumba instructor for also 7 years.  Her passion for Zumba is an understatement; she is addicted to teaching it and cannot wait to bring it into your fitness life.  Zumba is Megan's passion, but she also loves to teach many other group exercise classes, and can't wait to bring them to SWEAT.
