Katerina, a Nutrition and Exercise Science Graduate, like many became an addict in early 2010 when she found that her weight loss had reached a plateau.
It would surprise many to know that Katerina was almost twice her weight at just over 15 stone. Even as a Lighter Life Representative and despite winning awards for her weight loss and featuring in an inspirational magazine article, Katerina needed something else that was going to kick start the weight loss again. It was then she stumbled across Zumba with Latin Vibes.
By combining a healthy balanced diet, even though she still enjoys many of her pleasures, Katerina is now a remarkable 5 stones lighter.
“Katerina was one of those pupils that didn’t hold back and gave it everything she had in class”, says Akile. “I found that she was catching my attention more and more in class and I could see tremendous progress in her physical body shape and overall fitness. She had guts and determination, and I needed someone like this on the team – she would inspire so many. The rest is history.”
In 2010 Katerina auditioned and then became Zumba certified once going through the training programme. Since she has continued to invest in herself and is also a Qualified Exercise to Music Instructor.
“Zumba® has completely changed my life as it has given me confidence, lots of new friends, and an even bigger smile on my face.
If like me, you are reluctant to take that leap of faith or need that little extra something in your life, get involved. I promise, you won’t look back… I haven’t”.
