Our journey has just begun...
The concept of Sweet Fit VI was developed out of a passion for fitness and wanting to share that love with others in our community! At Sweet Fit VI, our mission is to motivate people of all ages and abilities to come together and achieve their fitness goals, and have fun while doing it! Indulge in your fitness journey at Sweet Fit VI!
In January 2018, I decided to take control of my health, body and overall well-being. Along with healthier eating habits, I started indoor cycling & fell in love! I eventually started cycling 3-4 times a week, and developed a new passion for fitness and wanting to share that passion with others! Cycling gives me the opportunity to clear my mind, zone out for about 45-60 minutes & focus on my ride! In the process, I've lost weight (45 lbs & counting), I'm healthier and most importantly, I feel good on the inside! I'm very thankful to the supportive team of women who encouraged and inspired me to be Great and Keep Pushing!
As a Certified Cycling Instructor, I promise to keep your classes fun, motivating & entertaining with feel good vibes! You will work hard and get in shape all while listening to some great tunes! (I also take song requests 😉). Will you join me on this Fitness Journey at Sweet Fit VI? I hope that you will. Let's do this together and become the best version of ourselves in 2019!
Asia was born in Houston, TX and is currently a Student Athlete at UVI - she has used basketball as a means to travel the world, which led her to St.Thomas! Being involved in fitness, Asia has learned how valuable it is to stay active. Her passion to motivate others along with her dedication to community outreach is what sparked her interest in Zumba! Asia has been a Zumba ZIN™ Member since August 2018 and absolutely loves teaching Zumba classes. Her reason is simple: Every class feels like a party! Asia's classes are designed to bring a fresh, fun and exciting environment to fitness! Asia's favorite quote is "Through discipline, you can achieve anything".
Sharon moved to St. Thomas in July with her husband, son (Zach) and daughters (SaraGrace and Samantha) from Nashville, Tennessee. Sharon is an English teacher at Edith Williams and a former Nashville police officer. Sharon has taught numerous fitness classes for more than 15 years at places such as the YMCA and Gold's Gym among others. She teaches high intensity, upbeat classes for all ages and ability levels. If you like to get a great total body workout and listen to some great (loud!) music while you sweat, Sharon's classes are for you!
For years I struggled to find a cardio workout that I actually liked (or that I could stick with). Early 2018, a friend invited me to an indoor cycling class and I have been cycling 3 times a week since! Indoor cycling gives me the burn I want while making me feel really good about myself. I am a Certified Cycling Instructor at Sweet Fit VI and I'm excited to share what I've learned along my journey with everybody! My goal is to inspire you and to get you excited about Fitness! Please join me for Indoor Indoor Cycling.. my classes are Challenging and Fun! You will leave feeling motivated, energized and ready for another session!

Classes will utilize the HIIT method (high intensity interval training), Tabatas (short intense bursts of cardio followed by a short break and back at it!), Push up variations, Burpees of all types, Core and even occasional light weight workouts. I use a scientifically proven exercise formula known as E.P.O.C.(Exercise Post Oxygen Consumption) to increase your metabolism up to 12-16 hours after your workout! That’s right, burn fat for HOURS after your workout! I also utilize the principle of muscle confusion. You will NEVER do the same workout twice! Why is this good? Because…your body will never adapt and you will never plateau! You will get results and they will come quick and continue to come…..month after month after month!
