At the time Zumba arrived in Australia Keren had already been personal training and teaching aerobics in gyms for over 11 years. When Keren heard about the Zumba Fitness program she fell in love with workout immediately and did her training within the second group of instructors to certify across Australia. This meant that she was in the forefront of the game and enabled her to establish herself prominently in the Zumba world of Australia.
Upon certifying Keren recognised the lack of affordable, casual fitness options for people and decided to start up her own ZUMBA with Keren business instructing private Zumba Fitness sessions out of the gym setting. The attendance for Keren’s classes was so high that within 6 months 2 classes per week turned to 12 classes a week and within 12 months there were 22 classes per week on her schedule and UNITED BY KEREN was born. The demand had grown at such a fast rate and it was obvious that people wanted an affordable workout that was fun, professional and still personal. So – Keren hand-picked a few of her regular participants who were natural, committed, passionate and excited to help lighten her load. They qualified as instructors and were guided by Keren to present a top-notch, fun and effective class and now Keren is able offer more value-for-money, no strings attached classes to all her participants.
My aim is to inspire and assist you to reach your goals and beyond in a fun, non-judgemental party atmosphere. I’ve worked in the fitness industry for over 14 years as an aerobics, cycle and aqua aerobics instructor. I’ve also managed my own small business as a Cert 4 personal trainer for all populations. I bring these years of experience and knowledge to my classes.
I thrive on seeing people change their attitude first and then their bodies in turn, making their life much happier and healthier.

I’m originally from Colombia: the birth place of Zumba! I grew up with the infectious Latin rhythms in my blood and I am ready to share this precious part of my culture with you. I bring the original Latin flavour to my classes as they take me back to my Colombia every time. We have a full on Latino party!! It has changed my life giving me the opportunity to find my passion which embodies touching people’s lives and watching them transform emotionally and physically. I look forward to sharing my passion with you.

I’m Gaby and I’m from Venezuela, but I arrived to Melbourne in February 2014. I’ve been dancing basically since I was born, but I tried a Zumba class for the first time about 5 years ago and Immediately I became a Zumba addict. Dancing is one of my biggest passions and I look forward that all my participants enjoy my classes as much as I do.
Zumba makes me feel like home!! and what I love the most about teaching it is to see my participants having fun and telling me that they can barely move after the class but with a big smile in their faces.
