Through Zumba, Siti Khadijah Z.A (Instructor Katz) has managed to reduce her weight to 20kg and more.This was achieved gradually within 1 year+ after doing Zumba.
After giving birth to 2 wonderful children and almost 5 years being a SAHM, she decided it’s time to start getting Active again!
“At that time, I was 92kg (after the birth of my 2nd child). But gradually, I have managed to loss all that weight through my Zumba Classes!” says Ms. Siti Khadijah.
Currently, She is an ActiveSG Trainer and is teaching mulitple classes per week in the East of Singapore i.e. Bedok, Tampines and at the Pasir Ris.
“I have been teaching Zumba® Fitness for more than 5 years and have been in the Bellydance industry for more than 8 years. I teach 8 classes per week and interacts with almost 180 students weekly”.
Before becoming a Zumba® Instructor, She was a staff at Etonhouse International School. She then stopped (due to pregnancies) and became a full-time housewife. She also volunteers at the BCF (Breast Cancer Foundation) for several months.
In 2013, She started teaching 1 class per week and when her children started growing up and becoming more independent, it was then she increased to teaching twice a week and subsequently increasing it more.
She continues to teach classes up till today.
Aside from teaching Zumba® Fitness (for Adults), she also teach Zumba® Kids (for Children), Bellydance (for Adults) and Bellydance (for Kids) classes at the Local Sports Centres and Community Centres in Bedok, Tampines and Pasir Ris.
“My wish is to keep on motivating Others especially Women in Singapore to continue attending Fitness / Dance Classes. As Women and our Bodies undergoes many changes throughtout our lifetime such as puberty, child-birth and menopause, there is a more need for us to continue living a Healthy lifestyle!”
“Women, mothers, wives and those above 45 years of age must continue making time for Fitness. My life as an Instructor and teaching classes only started after the birth of my second child. If i can pick up a healthier lifestyle, so can you”, she adds.
“I also urges other (male) family members to support and encourage your spouses to attend and enjoy 1 hour of fitness / dance classes per week”.
Last words from Instructor Katz:
“I would really advise everyone, to please, Do not be Hesitant to invest abit of your time and finance for your Health and Fitness.
We are the ones that will be benefitting from these classes under an experienced and skilled instructor. You only have 1 Body in this lifetime”.
“Do take care of it”, she says.
