Instructor: Coumba Baradji
If you’re looking for energy and fun, Coumba’s classes are for you! This triathlon trainer loves to motivate and encourage her students to push themselves. Her proudest accomplishments are when people go beyond their abilities. She is frequently telling her students to “Be strong, be brave — giving up is not an option.”
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).
Coumba joined Echelon because she enjoys the live classes and fun energy. She finds being a member of the Echelon Community s rewarding because of the great opportunities to push herself and excel in a fun way.
Coumba advises new members to go step by step and gradually move forward! “Set yourself SMART goals to be always motivated.” A SMART goal is Simple, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-Bound.
