What ignited this cultural awareness movement is the fusion of a multitude of influences that bottled up & needed to be shared! Afrofit is the product of a passion for body movement and a need to promote, accurately, the vast array of Afrocentric influences in our modern society. The initial expression is demonstrated in a fusion of cardio workout created from the blend of Afro-Caribbean rhythm infused with house, R&B, folkloric and hip-hop. It jump starts your body & get that metabolism going while allowing the exploration of new flavors in music & dances. Body movement is enjoyed in a marriage of rhythms that transport you through different countries on a musical voyage!
On a more practical aspect, Afrofit strongly believes that a body in motion tends to want to remain in motion... The laws of physics have demonstrated this fact. Afrofit is committed to apply this premise as mush as possible. The impact on one's health cannot be measured! This aspect of our mission is one that is rooted in the belief that we are each other's keepers. We have the tools to take care of ourselves. Afrofit is here to offer you one avenue to utilize these tools while having fun!

Afrofit is a labor of love; the expression of an amalgam of experiences & legacies. It is the projection of a lifestyle that was, that is & that will be for generations to come. Afrofit is to be a beacon to remind us that the Afrocentric culture has an important place in humanity and its contribution is endless.
