A Chat with Fitness with Harmonie
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Hi, I’m Harmonie. I’m an AFAA-certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor. I teach, Zumba, hip-hop, yoga, and Pilates. I take you through a full workout with strength training, cardio, and flexibility every time. All in a small private studio with usually only five students at a time.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
We do fun contests that can earn you big money but best of all help you to lose fat and gain lean mass. We also keep the studio dark with black lights and a disco ball; this way you can shake it and not feel intimidated. We also have theme nights about once a month. Come sweat and play with us.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I used to hate exercise, but then as I got older I felt older and I gained weight. I realized that exercising (and eating smart) was key to me not feeling old. I feel young and capable of keeping up with my teen boys. I wanted to share my love, plus I love dance; the choreography makes me feel good.
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing people smile whether that is just having a good time in class, or whether they are seeing consistently awesome results with contests and assessments. I also super love the whooping in class. It lifts my soul. I also like the education of the job. Exercise needs to be smart and fun.
