I love dancing and working out!! I’ve always been athletic as far back as I can remember. And what can I say about dancing… I wore my first ballet slippers and Tap shoes at the age of 8.
Since then, I’ve become a Group Fitness Instructor and I strive to make every class fun, challenging and efficient. I give all my classes a personal touch, taking the time to get to know my clients and make sure they are performing at their best, whether they have been training for years or have never been to a Group Class before. I bring excitement and creativity to all my classes.
I’m certified to teach Cize, Insanity Workout, Piloxing, Piyo and Zumba® Fitness (Aqua, Toning & Step)
Noam is a certified personal trainer and a Pilates instructor. He also has years of extensive dance and martial arts training, having trained with some of the best masters in both fields.
His classes are as eclectic and diverse as the person himself. He brings a train hard or go home attitude to every class with just a hint of playfulness to entertain you. So expect the unexpected!
One thing for sure though, you will be pushed to the max physically as well as mentally. Oh yes, he believes that working the mind is as important as training the body. Whether in his Pilates or Zumba class you will be sure to sweat and have fun.
