Meet Ziba Lennox, the Dancing Mama Who Is Transforming the Lives of Women Through Dance Fitness

Published

on

The first time I heard about dancing fitness, I wasn’t sure it was even a thing. However, that was years ago when I thought dance was just a reserve of the pros. Fast forward to 2019, Ziba Lennox caught my eye on Instagram for combining dance fitness & fashion. I had the chance to interact with Ziba Lennox, an entrepreneur and professional ballerina who is changing lives through dance. Lennox has been in the fitness industry for ten years now. Over the years, she has created and developed the revolutionary Dancing Mama Style into an irresistible trend and brand among women from all walks of life. A mother of two boys, Lennox stands both as a source of inspiration and encouragement to mothers. I spoke to Lennox about what she does, and she obliged to let me in on her success journey. There was so much to learn from this woman who believes that, “Dancing & moving are the best things you can do for your mental health.”

Growing up in a Ballet Class to Co-Founding a Company with Her Sister

Well, Lennox did not exactly grow up in a ballet class but considering that she enrolled at the tender age of two, you would be forgiven for saying she did. Her passion for dance was fanned to the extent that she became a full-blown professional ballerina. Surprisingly, or maybe not quite so, Lennox tagged her sister, Marisol, along in her love affair with the dance floor. The two were, and still, are inseparable. They even partnered to open MaZi Dance Fitness, a company that allows women to leverage dance to live healthy lives, with a focus on mental wellness. MaZi is a first of its kind in the world because they focus on the real feel of a dance studio that embraces everyone. Unlike what some might expect, Lennox went to school like all other kids  and later to the University of Rochester where she graduated with an MBA in Finance. “I decided to go to business school after seeing how hard it can be to transition out of dance later in life,” she says. As you can guess, a few years in business school didn’t do much to erase Lennox’s passion for dance. The dance guru worked for Target/Best Buy in Minneapolis shortly after which she and her sister formed MaZi. 

Making Profit and a Difference in Women’s Lives Without the Help of Investors

I asked Lennox what amazes her most when she looks back on how far she and her sister have come, and she told me she is proud that they, “have never had investors and were profitable since the first month of operation.” Considering that only a handful of businesses can boast of such a fete, Lennox positions herself as the daring entrepreneur who is not afraid to do things differently and win every time. Despite being tempted to think that dance is not that much of a life-impacting activity, Lennox made me realize that there is a whole lot of things people don’t know about the relationship between dance and wellness. She says, “Beyond being profitable and evolving with the fitness trends, the biggest success I feel is changing the lives of the people that come to MaZi.” 

What the Future Holds

In our conversation, I must admit I wasn’t as surprised as when Lennox told me, “I don’t often think about where I’m headed. I just work as hard as I can in the moment. It’s a strength and a weakness.” Come to think of it. If the dancing mama has come this far without being obsessed and worried about the future, she is more than okay going a thousand more miles in the same fashion. The kind of easiness she approaches life with is very inspiring. However, Lennox did mention something about working on the part of her business she wants to use to create awareness on causes.  

In summation, there is nothing quite like a woman motivated enough to take life by the horns. Ziba Lennox uses her experience in business, dance, and motherhood to inspire women to reach for greatness in life, and not take for granted talent and opportunity. If you are out there and like I have ever doubted the power of dance, you should reread this and share it with a friend.

How Dr. Zach Beatty Is Promoting Health Through Effective Chiropractic Adjustments

Published

on

Increasingly, alternative healthcare is gaining popularity around the world. One of the most popular alternative healthcare approaches at this time is chiropractic care, which treats joints misalignments, especially those of the spinal column, connected to the nervous system. Chiropractic treatments involve non-surgical procedures performed to restore joint function and support the nervous system.

Globally, chiropractic care is the top alternative healthcare procedure and the third largest among healthcare professions. A 2018 study showed that approximately 35 million Americans are treated by chiropractors every year. When it comes to low-back pain treatments, Americans have a higher preference for chiropractors than consulting physical therapists.

When speaking about chiropractic treatment in San Diego, California, the name Dr. Zach Beatty will always emerge in the discussion. Dr. Beatty is the owner and primary chiropractor of Gonstead Family Chiropractic. The center provides chiropractic adjustments to the San Diego community. 

Chiropractic As A Business

Dr. Beatty is a practicing chiropractor with a specialization in using the chiropractic method known as the Gonstead technique. Like any other health and wellness business, chiropractic care is thriving because people are becoming more conscious about their health and physical well-being. “Other than being healthcare professionals, chiropractors are also entrepreneurs since most run their own business. So, to succeed in establishing a thriving treatment center, it is crucial to learn how to run a business,” Beatty stated.

More and more Americans visit chiropractors for their neck and back pains, giving a great increase to the need for chiropractic services. In fact, a recent study revealed that three in four Americans saw a chiropractor to treat their neck and back pains. The majority of these patients stated that chiropractic treatment is beneficial. The chiropractic industry in the United States alone generates yearly revenue of around $13 billion.

Dr. Beatty clarified that chiropractic care goes beyond managing back and spinal issues. He added that chiropractic care is used to enhance the health and well-being of individuals. Specifically, chiropractic adjustments lessen pain while improving movement and performance. It makes use of controlled force applied to a joint, optimizing the nervous system by bringing back the joint’s proper function and mobility.

Getting To Know Dr. Zach Beatty

Dr. Beatty grew up in the countryside. When he was young, he lived in northwest Pennsylvania in a small town of fewer than 1,000 residents. Dr. Beatty is highly athletic and participated in many sports activities. After high school, Dr. Beatty pursued a degree in Exercise Science at Baldwin Wallace University in Berea, Ohio. His growing interest in chiropractic led him to St. Louis, Missouri, to earn his doctorate in chiropractic at Logan University.

To kickstart his chiropractic business, Dr. Beatty moved to San Diego, California, to start practicing his profession as a chiropractor. In 2019, he led the opening of a state-of-the-art chiropractic facility in Kearny Mesa, located in central San Diego. “Over the years, I have been the team doctor for several high school and professional teams,” Dr. Beatty said.

Gonstead Family Chiropractic

Dr. Beatty shared that at Gonstead Family Chiropractic, there are experts in treating injuries resulting from vehicular accidents, neck and back pains, headaches, among others. Dr. Beatty said that they use the Gonstead Chiropractic technique in treating patients. “The Gonstead technique focuses on analyzing each person and their specific condition to provide extremely effective chiropractic adjustments for optimal results,” Dr. Beatty explained. Through this method, a complete analysis of the entire spine is performed to detect spinal misalignments. After this, a specific treatment plan is tailored for the individual and crafted to correct the misalignments that will help the body in its natural healing process.

“At Gonstead Family Chiropractic, our goal is to remove any nerve interference to permit the body’s nervous system’s optimal function and allow the body to heal itself,” Dr. Beatty explained. After he got his start, Beatty’s business continued and still continues, to grow. “We have been fortunate enough to work, even in the wake of COVID-19. We have even continued to grow despite the pandemic. To say thank you for all the successes that we have encountered from our beginnings, I make direct efforts to participate in volunteer activities for the homeless. Although right now, this volunteer work has currently been postponed due to the health crisis,” he added. The Gonstead Family Chiropractic has been giving back to the community through various annual food, costume, or other efforts to help less fortunate people. 

In A Nutshell

Patients express their satisfaction with the treatment and service provided by Dr. Beatty and his team at Gonstead Family Chiropractic. A satisfied patient shared that he had been suffering from sleeping problems due to his gastrointestinal acid reflux. He remarked that obtaining chiropractic treatment from Gonstead Family Chiropractic allowed him to have healthy sleep again. Admittedly, before seeking treatment he never thought that a chiropractor could solve his problem, but he was proven wrong and now urges all to seek chiropractic services to alleviate such challenges.
