I am Jed, some of my friends call me Masterjedai. I have an intense passion for dance and I love expressing myself through music. From there, my journey as a Zumba® instructor began. Zumba has changed my life drastically in more ways than one. Humility aside, I can aptly claim that I'm a success story—not just psychologically but also the more noticeable one, physically. I have never, in my wildest dreams, thought about playing a part in the “Best Fitness Workout in the Entire World”, until Zumba® came! I now love it, embrace it, and live it on a daily basis. 90% of Zumba® to me is the lives that I’ve touched, the people who have reached deep down into my soul, and the ones who connected with me on so many levels. I believe I am a better person because of what I do. It thrills me to see the personal growth that my students achieve through simple fun. Many come to reap the physical aspects of Zumba®, but so many have come to de-stress, to recover, to gain confidence, to heal, and to feel whole. I have, until the present, been working for the past 4 years as a Certified Zumba® Fitness Instructor. People who know me well usually aren’t very surprised by this fact. I’m bubbly, I’m packed with energy, and I’m pretty much constantly moving. It’s not a complete shocker that I teach a hyperactive, neon-filled dance fitness class. I'm currently based in Dubai and have been teaching here for 4 years now. This has been my new home and it has never felt more true. Hope to see you in one of my classes! Zumba® love.
