Doesn’t work: I'm Romeo, and I live in Montreal, QC. I've been a ZIN™ Member since Sep 2019 and I absolutely love teaching Zumba classes. The reason is simple: Every class feels like a party! I guarantee you will have a blast! Classes info are up to date, but if you got questions, don't hesitate to drop me a message!
Why not: How is the instructor qualified to teach Zumba? What is a ZIN member? There are some grammar issues here - make sure to have it checked by a trusted friend or the Decathlon Activities team! Users can contact the organizer using our platform, and class info is always up to date, so this info should not be included in your bio.
Doesn’t work: After many years spent in Africa taming lions, I saved civilization by stopping World War Two and I finally travelled through time to end up sharing my love for cycling at Decathlon in Eaton Center.
Why not: It’s fun, it’s cute, but how is the instructor qualified to teach spinning? We need a lot more info about the teacher, their qualifications, and their “vibe” as an activity leader.
I am an athlete that has been coaching since 2008. I have a Bachelor of Physical Activity from the University of Ottawa and have since developed a passion for triathlon, trail running and fitness. I’ve participated in 6 different marathons around the world including the New York Marathon in 2015, where I came in 110th (which is quite good!!!). I do every sport imaginable whether I'm good at it or not – I'm always up for a challenge! I love sharing my passion for new sports with everyone I meet.
