Julija Lesnikova-Foti, Fitness Vibe Instructor

Julija Lesnikova-Foti

A law Graduate, Julija moved to the UK from her home country Lithuania in 1999.

Julija has always had a passion for dance and fitness since she was a child and has always been an avid gym goer. In her words “I can’t imagine doing otherwise, it gives me vitality and discipline”.

Having secured work as a full-time Office Administrator at an Oil and Gas Company, Julija joined as a member at one of Europe’s biggest gyms and fitness facilities, The Reebok Sports Club (now Third Space).

It was almost 2 years later when she first met Akilé and took part in her first Fitness Vibe session.

“That was it; I was hooked instantly and made the most of every opportunity to take part in a class, even if it meant lining up for ages, as Fitness Vibe classes were always over subscribed.”

Being inspired by how Zumba® built her self-confidence and transformed her body, Julija decided she wanted to teach the Zumba® programme and pass on the passion and inspiration she experienced to other people. She was thrilled when Akilé had the same idea and the decision to bring Julija on to the teaching team was reached in early 2011.

“Today, I am proud to be a part of the Fitness Vibe team which brings unique, exhilarating and fun classes every day of the week not only to me but to so many others.”
