Zee's Story | Leicester City
When Zumba arrived, Zee finally found a way of exercising that combined her passion to express herself through movement, staying active and keeping fit. She started her business, Zfit, with the intent to share this amazing discovery with other women going through the same struggle. What started as a group of women coming together to stay active in a way that didn't feel like exercise, soon became a synergy of women from every background & generation. They started breaking down barriers and connecting the community in a way that was revolutionary. Quite by accident Zee ended up becoming a community ambassador, having found that she could relate to many of the struggle's women go through.
Zee wants to shout louder to recognise the variety of ways to exercise and stay fit that meet all our needs & caters for all the ways that make us unique. After a year of social distancing, we enter a new world of new possibilities and fresh hope of coming socially together. For Zee that hope is a new dawn of fitness; a place welcoming to all; a place to escape; stay active as a lifestyle and feel good. A place where ALL body shapes are celebrated.
