Music and movement have been Franlene’s passions since she was a child. She was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York to Puerto Rican parents. She has always been active one way or another, through sports, cheerleading, or break dancing at local community events. For the last 14 years she has lived in Florida and worked in law enforcement, where she was a drill instructor and led Police and Corrections Academy recruits on marching drills and strength training. Recently, Franlene shifted from law enforcement to her decade-long passion for fitness, becoming a certified Zumba Instructor in 2016. With Strong music and movement, she strives to motivate and drive her classes to take their fitness to the next level.
