Ali's Team

Ali has a great team that helps her manage all aspects of AliKat Moves. Krista and Marisa help by teaching classes, managing the calendar, assisting with class cards, accepting Zoom participants and much more!


Licensed Zumba® Instructor

AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor

Krista started taking classes with Ali in July 2013. Krista, on a weight loss journey of her own, knew she needed to live a more active and healthy lifestyle. Through a combination of eating smarter and getting daily exercise at AliKat Moves, she was able to lose 75lbs and has been able to maintain that weight loss for nearly 7 years...with hard work and a supportive, safe, welcoming environment to do it in. As a Special Education Administrator, she strongly believes in teamwork, dedication, perseverance and support in order to meet your individualized goals. 

To her, being healthy isn't just a number. It's how you feel and how you choose to live your life. Krista wants to be an inspiration to all the members at AliKat Moves, just as Ali was to her. Seeing people come into class excited and leaving smiling, sweaty and accomplished is a huge reward! The AliKat Moves community is her home away from home! In her free time, Krista enjoys powerlifting, spending time with family & friends, and writing.


With the encouragement of Ali, she decided to become a licensed Zumba® instructor in January 2014 and has been actively teaching since 2015 at AliKat Moves. Krista holds the following Zumba® Licenses: Basic I, Basic II, Zumba® Gold, Zumba® Toning, Zumba® Kids & Kids Jr.In addition, she has the following: AFAA Certification, Strong by Zumba, ProSkills Training


Licensed Zumba® Instructor

Marisa started taking classes with Ali in June, 2013.  She was looking for a way to get some exercise, and get back to her dance roots.  What she found was a class that felt more like a dance party, and a community of people that offered friendship, support, and empowerment.  It was with that support that Marisa became a licensed Zumba instructor in March, 2016.

When she’s not in the studio she is working with applicants to graduate business degrees at Boston University. In the studio, Marisa loves being a part of our members’ journeys, watching the joy on their faces during class, and helping them to feel the same sense of empowerment that she felt when she started her own journey with AliKat Moves.
