MixxedFit & FIT BodyWerk Instructor
Asia first decided to become an instructor as a way to keep herself active and in-shape. She's been teaching since 2014, but before that she was the student. In 2013, she realized that if she didn't get her life and health together, she would not be around to enjoy her family. She participated in a "Biggest Loser Challenge" at work, which sparked a fire of fitness for her. Asia started her weight loss journey at 275 lbs and lost 90 lbs in 1 year with Zumba and Personal Training. When her personal training ended, she knew she couldn't afford it again, but she also knew she couldn't afford to lose her motivation, so she had to come up with a plan. After seeing her weight loss and dedication, her instructors Mia, Ti-arah, and Lashawn were all asking her to get certified in Zumba and teach. She was extremely nervous so at the time she would just smile and joke it off. Asia believed she could never teach because she was not on "their level". But after really thinking about it, she said, "why not". She figured she could just try it and the rest is history. Zumba changed her life. She started off subbing for instructors and that grew into much more. Since then, she now teaches 13 classes a week full-time, which include Zumba, BodyWorks, Water Aerobics, Power Circuit, BootCamp, Yoga, and MixxedFit. In the beginning, she started a fitness journey for herself, but she ended up becoming like her mentors by helping other students see their passions and achieve their goals.
