Coumba’s Fitness Journey

Coumba has not always worked as a fitness instructor. Before joining the Echelon community, she was a flight attendant, a personal assistant, and worked in an actor studio! After deciding to use her passion for sports and teaching, she worked to receive a fitness instructor certificate (BPJEPS AF). 

What Brought Coumba to Echelon
