Z Fit Team
I left my career as a teacher to build Z Fit Studios into a thriving Dance Fitness Studio that makes people enjoy fitness and feel better about themselves; and I can honestly say I love my job!! But that is thanks to the community we have created. I love to dance and I have been dancing for 28 years. I am a qualified primary & secondary school teacher and started teaching dance at a young age so I have plenty of experience teaching. My favourite dance style is Burlesque and in 2014 I performed in Paris at La Manufacture. Being an international guest artist for the evening was certainly a highlight in my dance career. Above all I love seeing the benefits that dance fitness and Z Fit Studios can provide. The benefits are both physical and psychological – I love chatting to my clients to hear how dance fitness has changed their life. Come and let it change yours.
Michayla has been involved in aerial arts since 2013, when she first started pole dancing to improve strength, fitness, and confidence. In 2014, She took up an additional class in aerial silks to increase her strength. After 2 terms, she fell in love with fabric! She progressed on to aerial hoop in 2015, which had always fascinated her. She has travelled across Australia for her aerial education, eventually earning her silks training qualification in 2015. She is always looking to improve her strength and flexibility, also training in contortion and on other circus apparatuses such as straps, cord lisse and static trapeze. She has performed in a number of shows, including in front of a 1000+ audience at the Grey Hound Hotel. When she is not twirling in the air, you can find Michayla deep in a textbook studying to be a doctor at the local hospital!
Robbie graduated The Victorian College of the Arts in 2011 and has been involved in dance since 1992. Originally from Castlemaine he trained and performed in Melbourne until 2014. Moving to Bendigo for teaching commitments he still travels to Melbourne and Sydney to rehearse and perform. Robbie has been working on a second development of "Hypnogogia" with Amanda Lever and is co-choreographing Liquid Skin’s new Film work as co-rehearsal director of Liquid Skin with Rochelle Carmichael. He is trained in multiple styles with a focus on Contemporary including self-developed cardio and dance based strength and flexibility training.
I am an instructor for Zumba - Monkey kids - Pole - Tyre Express and now AussieTwerk. I find it very rewarding seeing people happy, getting fitter and stronger, losing weight, gaining confidence and having fun!! Love my job and my Z Fit family. xo
Having been a dancer for the last sixteen years it has been a big part of my life.
I love to dance and even more so I love to see the excitement and joy it can bring to other people.
I have experience in classical ballet, jazz, hip hop, ballroom, contemporary, tap, burlesque, commercial and street styles. My love for dancing is ever growing especially as I learn new genres. Being an instructor at Z Fit studios means I can say that I honestly love my job and the people I get to work with. Being part of such a fun and exciting community only enhances the joy that dance fitness has bought to my life.
I am Zumba instructor here at Z Fit. I'm new to instructing but a long-time lover of all things Zumba. Zumba is the hobby that is good for my soul! I work full time as a mental health clinician and am a greater believer in the benefits of exercise to improve your emotional wellbeing while improving your overall fitness. I have been coming to Z Fit for 3 years now and love the feeling of community the studio offers. So strap on your high tops, slap on your brightest colours and come and join the Zumba party!
I'm a mother of two and also a part time teacher. I never really had a dancing background but I have loved dancing to the music since I was little. I started doing ZUMBA in August 2012 after my friend invited and introduced me to Z Fit Studios and this was 4 months after I had my second child. I loved doing ZUMBA and without noticing it I lost 4kg in a month. In March 2013 I became a ZUMBA instructor at Z Fit Studios and have taught ZUMBA since then. I teach Zumba Fitness and Zumba Mix (Zumba Toning & Zumba Step). Since I joined the studio, I've learnt different styles of dance including Burlesque and Pole dancing. It has helped me build my confidence and kept me active. I'm happy that I am a part of Z Fit Studios family and meet beautiful friends here. Oh, before I forget I make noises and am silly when I run my classes so don't be surprised if I pull funny faces during the class. ;) Would love to see you guys come and party with me!
I started at Z Fit as a Zumba student 5yrs ago. It was a fun and friendly atmosphere that kept me returning. When the opportunity came for me to be involved with Z Fit in a different capacity I was excited. I now work at the studio as office admin. It gives me great pleasure getting to know the clients and their families and seeing the enjoyment they get from being a part of Z Fit Studios.
I am one of the current pound instructors after falling in love with the class earlier this year. I love teaching the class and the way it makes fitness fun. I also attend a number of other classes at Z Fit after first joining to try the Aerial FUNFit class. Since then the studio has become a second home providing various classes to keep me fit in a fun and supportive environment.
I'm a Zumba instructor here at Z Fit. Love everything fitness and working out. Started Zumba with my partner (Chooneng) and as you do, got addicted. If you’re looking for some fun and to get a good sweat up. Come on in...
