Every Week I look to feature and interview a young mover and shaker who embodies the “Go Getta Spirit” and is doing great things for the people and themselves in the Western New York and Southern Ontario community. Having the the blessed opportunity of having my show “The Go Getta Mix” I look to use my platform to acknowledge those people nominated as “The Go Getta of The Week”.

Meet The Go Getta Of The Week Candice Marie Arroyo

Candice Marie Arroyo is a mentor, advocate for health & wellness, and a mother to 7-yr- old Cadence Olivia. She seeks to incorporate fun ways to get people moving, eating better, and living overall healthier lifestyles. Motivated by her own weight loss journey, Candice became an accredited Zumba instructor in May of 2011. She now teaches five classes per week at various locations.

Filled with hip-hop and salsa-esque moves, the workout is upbeat, challenging and all set to a score of classic and modern rhythms that people of any age can enjoy. Her journey also led her to the creation of the popular “30- Day Challenge” --- a strict eating plan for those who need a jumpstart or a reboot with their own health journeys. Participants are met with a widespread support system, including Candice’s daily texts, tips & tricks and recipe ideas. She even offers personal meal plans and prepping.

She manages all of this while spending her days as a Quality Coach for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York. Leaving her mark on health & wellness in her community and beyond, Candice wishes for everyone who crosses her path to be encouraged to conquer anything they set out to do:

“All things are achievable when you focus on your goal!”
