This certified fitness professional has over 25 years of experience, traveling throughout the United States, Latin America, and Europe as an International Zumba® Presenter. Her passion has always been to inspire and help others reach their fitness goals and live healthier lives. She has had the opportunity to work with world renowned fitness programs and equipment manufacturers such as Les Mills®, ViPR®, Technogym® to name a few.

With her mixture of experience and knowledge, Suyumi has developed some of the hottest and creative workouts. One of which is called “World Cup Workout”, a combination of high intensity, high repetition, athletic endurance, and agility training, just like the soccer pros discipline. She has also had the chance to teach new workout formats, such as “Cardio Kickboxing”, “Powerstrike”, and “Studio Cycling”. Naturally, she’s got A LOT of energy!

From Chicago to Miami, working with some of the most prestigious gyms, her unique style has landed her the honorific ‘in-house fitness expert,’ on several local television programs, such as “Deco Drive” WSVN 7News, “The South Florida Morning Show” 850 WFTL, and “Levantate” on Telemundo, just to name a few. She says, “I knew from an early age that I wanted to work in the fitness industry and change people’s lives by helping them reach their fitness goals.”

“In the fitness industry, especially in Mexico where I started my career, there were many challenges. Fitness was not a field that was considered a professional career, so getting education, certifications and being respected as a professional was very difficult. Furthermore, being female and wanting to make a name for yourself created even more obstacles,” she says.

Suyumi’s humble attitude is also one to be recognized. Giving back to the community has always been a very important part of her life, by serving and bringing happiness to others. She has been working with a non-profit organization, in her country of Mexico, to provide food for those less fortunate. Anytime she has the opportunity to return to Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, her hometown, it truly is a special moment. She says, “The most rewarding part is when students thank me for giving them the push and motivation to make a healthy lifestyle change and that they are happier and more fit. To have their affection and trust is priceless.”

Suyumi is a Reebok Ambassador for the third consecutive year. Not to mention, in 2015, she won the Racked Miami’s Hottest Trainer Competition. She enjoys traveling, reading, skating, and on rainy days, Netflix. Suyumi plans to continue educating herself and building her brand, and in a couple of years have her own business. She says, “When you work hard and truly never give up on your dreams, anything is possible.” This girl is on fire!

Get ready, because it’s all sweat and smiles alongside Suyumi this month.
