A Chat with Akinya Joy Fitness
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Having my background in martial arts, cross country, track and field, and dance, Zumba with Akinya is a high-energy, calorie-burning, muscle-toning dance fitness party that gives you a full-body workout!
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Well, for starters, I play some of the best hits. I often choreograph to students’ song suggestions, too; dance fitness is fun when we’re jamming. I encourage everyone individually, provide alternative movements, and an environment where there’s lots of clapping, smiling, and “woot woot”-ing. :)
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My first job as a teen: Assistant Karate Instructor. And I loved it! I learned that I love to help, I love fitness, and I love to see others succeed in fitness. Thereafter, I studied and instructed dance and other forms of fitness. I’ve now combined that zeal and training into Zumba with Akinya.
What do you love most about your job?
I love to spread joy through dance & fitness, because it positively impacts the health, well-being, and happiness of many people who, then, positively impact others.
