Joining TB Afrofit has been one of the best things I've ever done! This is a warm community of people who genuinely care about health and wellness and celebrating African cultural heritage with pride and authenticity. I've taken the Afrofit classes as well as Chakacha and Wednesday Night Drilling. They have boosted my self-confidence and cultural awareness, not to mention strengthened my body in more ways I can count. People, don't sleep on this awesome movement! Come, join us! You will not be disappointed.
"Thank you Natacha Zamor and Brayo Judah for offering this 2 day workshop. Brayo took us on a cultural voyage in the lifestyle associated with Soukous. Yes, barriers & boundaries were challenged. Brayo dug deep in educating us on its roots; why it is danced, when it is danced, how.... it is danced and the advantages of being fit enough... to dance this dance. And there are many interesting advantages!! It demands waistline control and core isolation such that many of us were sore for days. Just like any intense movement, to master, you must build the right muscles groups in order to sustain (and went non-stop for 4hrs) which takes discipline & practice, muscle memory and repetition. A great educational experience. An incredible workout. And an encouraged "LET IT GO" moment. We need more of this! And guys, you all will benefit from this is every way imaginable!!"
This past Saturday, was my first experience with Afro Fit! I loved it! Natacha, is not only a true artist in her craft, but extremely well versed and knowledgeable about the physiology of the body as it relates to each movement. She cleverly throws in a FREE history lesson about the beats she plays as a back drop for each movement!!.
Natacha Zamor is a leading Afro movement instructor and specializes in one of our most sensual dances, African Chakacha dance. Natacha also boldly teaches pure Haitian Folklore, a dance art form which was looked upon with shame and disdain in it's very nation. It's movements serve as the essence of connection to the divine feminine, Earth, and spirit. Her instruction leaves no stone unturned. Every element of wisdom and technique is utilized, from beginner to advanced dancers.
"AfroFit is Spearhead a Move with a Vision. The one thing I am sure about is this will be a legacy in this world and an answer to many. Was a blessing for me to share African Rhymes with you and I miss you guys. You are the best and lovely students. Keep up the great work."
Natacha is a great instructor. She is motivating and full of energy during her workout. Seeing how hard she works out makes me want to push harder. Her online Afrofit class is a variety of moves and musics are all strategic enough to get you moving without realizing how much work you're putting in. When taking this class get ready to sweat and get a really good workout. You'll definitely feel it the next day but stretch well and you won't regret it.

Awesome time learning African Body Movement
I recently attended Afrofit's African Body Movement Bootcamp. I had an awesome time. At first, I felt self conscious, but that feeling went away quickly b/c the atmosphere was super friendly. The class was fun, energetic and challenging. I moved muscles that I did not know Existed. Thanks to Natacha for taking the time to correct my posture....I wish that I lived closer so I could attend Afrofit's classes on a regular basis, but I will be back...
Natacha, attending your workshop made me realize what an awesome dance teacher you are! I could always tell how passionate you are about dance, but attending your class yesterday made me realize that teaching must be another passion of yours. The way you broke down the moves, and with such patience, made the 'Yanvalou' seem so easy for everyone! Looking forward to attending your next workshop.

She provides a safe, supportive environment for you to learn and grow at your own pace. Since continuing to take Chakacha, I have experienced significant areas of transformation within my life: *Enhanced Mental and Emotional wellBEING *Increased Physical Endurance *Improved Core Strength/ Body Definition *Boost in Confidence as I AM Going Beyond Perceived Limits I am so grateful to have added Chakacha as one of my most powerful tools, in my toolkit. It has become a universal tool for me, transcending the idea, that it is just another 'cool dance' to learn. Chakacha unassumingly morphed into a superpower for me.

Tampabay Afrofit is both challenging and fun. Natacha Zamor is an amazing instructor and her energy is infectious. One she gets you going, it's impossible to stop moving. I was hooked after my first AFROFIT CLASSESafrofit session and i kept going back for more. Tampabay afrofit provides a wealth of long term benefits and education for all ages.
I started working out with Natacha 4 months ago when I realized that her online fitness class options were a great option to my "busy mom" weekly schedule. Being able to take classes with her online offered me no more excuses to not take care of myself. She is my fitness accountability partner with whom I meet twice a week. Natacha is an excellent coach: she teaches me the "how and why" behind the exercises we do, which is essential for me when I exercise. Her workout sessions are tough yet fun and energized. I wholeheartedly recommend everyone to this revolutionary idea of online personal fitness with Natacha!
"Afrofit has not only really challenged my cardio endurance, but it also made my muscles burn! I have so much fun working out my entire body while dancing to wonderful African rhythms. Natacha's passion is so contagious it motivates me to execute every move with energy and enthusiasm. Time goes by really fast and my sore muscles the next day makes every experience worth it. Can't wait to see what else the Afrofit family has in store!!!!"
This woman has put in the time and work to make herself a household name. Not only has she invested in carefully educating herself, but she has developed a program that would appeal to any age group. She does all of this with great heart and love for her community, because she knows the dangers of an unhealthy lifestyle. She practices what she preaches. During her class, you will be encouraged every step of the way. Catch her online or in Tampa. Please do not sleep on Tampabay Afrofit!
I've been part of the TampaBay Afrofit tribe for over a year and the experience is just as exhilarating today as on day one! I love continuously learning more about CHAKACHA CLASSES, soukous, mutuashi, Haitian folk and the beautiful cultures from which they have emerged. There are so many layers to uncover that you really have to make it part of your lifestyle (as you'll hear Brayo & Natacha say 😊). Only then will you unlock the true rewards these dances bring. Working with Natacha and Brayo, has taught me more about how my body works and I've seen how these movements translate to social dance. Beyond these intellectual and physical benefits, I truly value the frienships I've made and the community built through TampaBay Afrofit. To put it briefly, Arrroooo!
Natacha is a wonderful teacher! Her patience and passion (and definitely her moves) truly inspire me. The tribe is awesome and there is a definite sense of community. I love it!

"It is a healing within layers of the heart when you invite yourself to another's rejoice and expansion; it is a win-win awarded reward that enlightens the roots of our soul. I am indeed a fan of TampaBay Afrofit and all that it intends for the greater collective as blessings in more ways than one. Thank YOU!"
"The workshop with Brayo hosted by TampabayAfrofit- Natacha Zamor was so entertaining, educational and hard. It takes a lot to move in a way that is so innate to a dancer such as he is. Hopefully, this is not the last time we will have one of his workshops."
