Growing up I loved to try different types of fitness disciplines. I did netball, ballet, street dance, boxing and kick boxing until I got to the point where I didn’t have time as I was working two jobs.
Slowly my weight increased as I was eating for convenience and a visit to the doctors I was told I was overweight and knew then I had to change my lifestyle.
I changed my job and had more free time but wasn’t really confident to go to any classes, so I decided to order the Zumba® DVD’s and try them at home. After a few months of doing the same routine every night I was getting bored. A friend told me about a Zumba® class she attended and said I should try it.
I was a little hesitant but I needed something more than a DVD so I pushed myself to try it. As soon as I walked in I felt such a great atmosphere and within a few minutes I had forgotten about how I looked and was in my zone!!!! Akilé made it so much fun but a great workout too, from that point I was hooked so I attended more classes.
After a while I started to feel like it was something I really wanted to do myself so I asked Akilé if I had what it takes. As you can guess the answer was yes! From that point I haven’t looked back I’ve gained confidence and I’ve maintained a good weight. The team welcomed me to the family and I’ve made some great friends.
Thanks Akilé for this great opportunity to take my career to another level and helping me get the confidence that had been missing for a long time!
