My name is Izabela Kin
I was born in Poland and since primary school I have practiced sports / team games, i.e. basketball, volleyball. I had an athletic predisposition, but I was not enthusiastic about developing them.
My love for sports and physical activity was not "love at first sight". As a teenager, I just wanted to BE SLIM, so I started running and going to aerobic classes.
Running was a nightmare back then, but luckily, aerobics stole my HEART! From the age of 15 it has become my daily routine. I cultivated this passion until my studies. After moving to Szczecin (where I studied at the Szczecin University of Technology), I became a certified fitness instructor and at the same time I competed in sports aerobics, representing the Szczecin University of Technology for 5 years.
In 2006 I moved to the USA as an IT specialist for 3 years and continued my development in Fitness. There I got certified with AFAA (Aerobic and Fitness Association of America) and I got to know the craziest form of fitness - ZUMBA.
In 2009 I became a Zumba Education Specialist and introduced ZumbaⓇ Fitness to Poland.
To this day, I conduct trainings in many countries around the world (Europe, Middle East, North and South America, Africa). For the last 12 years I have traveled almost every weekend, I have spent over 10,000 hours training several thousand instructors in the field of movement, training, fitness, dance, coaching and customer relations.
I conducted trainings and presented at many fitness conventions and fairs, incl. Zumba Convention in Orlando (every year from 2010-20), Los Angeles (2012), London (2012), France (2011), Eu4ya Convention (2010-17) and Go Active Show in Poland (2020), FIBO in Germany (2008).
For ZumbaⓇ Fitness, I have recorded educational materials for instructors, incl. ZumbaⓇ Core on-line training, ZumbaⓇ Toning Vol. 8 and Vol. 9 educational CD and many ZumbaⓇ Sentao, ZumbaⓇ Toning and ZumbaⓇ Kids on-line educational materials.
In 2012, I invited the ZumbaⓇ Fitness Beto creator Alberto Perez to Poland and we organized an event with his participation in Warsaw.
I cooperated with the magazine "Shape" (2015), for which I recorded a CD with ZumbaⓇ Fitness and ZumbaⓇ Toning training, "Be Active" (2018) creating a training based on the elements of Strong Nation™ training and "Woman's Health" (2018) by recording the training available on-line STRONG30.
In 2018, I presented the Strong Nation ™ program during Ewa Chodakowska's "Be Active Tour".
I was involved in development (2015) of the STRONG Nation ™ program (you will find my name in the manual), I conduct trainings continuing the development of STRONG Nation ™ instructors, the so-called SYNC LAB, where the instructor develops his technique. I am a fan of the following forms of exercise: STRONG Nation™, ZumbaⓇ Fitness, CrossFit, Body Art Extreme, Animal Flow and Kettlebell. I love creating my own Kettlebell Flow workouts.
Conducting Instructor's trainings is my main occupation, but I am a practitioner on a daily basis. For many years I have been conducting group trainings and personal trainings, and for 3 years I have supported the running of the Zumba Z-Studio in Poznań.
