Sherife Tayfun, Fitness Vibe Instructor and Executive Director

Sherife Tayfun

Sherife was on the Latin scene in the mid 90’s where Salsa clubs could only be found in Central London.

In 1998 Sherife competed in the UKA Salsa Championships and out of 60 couples, achieved the finals (9th place).

She thoroughly enjoyed the Salsa scene but it wasn’t so much fun on her own, so whilst preparing for the Championships, she dragged younger sister, Akilé to accompany her.

“Akilé absolutely hated it”, Sherife recalls, “but she was a natural and very soon we were all over the Latin and Salsa circuit like a rash!”

Having always been a part of Fitness Vibe, Sherife has always played an active role.

Her eclectic background in sports, yoga, psychology, motivational work, business management and teaching Latin dance meant she had a unique platform to teach Zumba® and Zumba® Toning. In addition she is Exercise to Music Qualified and First Aid trained so you are in good hands!

“I pride myself as an Instructor of good and safe technique which allows my students to see results and achieve personal fitness goals.”
