At the start of her own weight loss journey Akilah found motivation in group workouts. The gym had its benefits but their was a greater connection combining dance and exercising, with people who where embarking on the same journey.
Over time Akilah learned to bridge dance and integrated fitness into a group fitness class. Effectively using the structure of a dance class into the form of a workout. She later further her knowledge in fitness and studied under AFAA to become a certified group fitness instructor.
Body Werk has become its own genre in the concept of group fitness. The elements of Akilah' s personality, her creativity, hype music, dance, transparency, and body inclusiveness, changes the perspective of how people view fitness.
