Tara Simich sweeps world with fit­ness work­outs

New Zealand Fitness - - FROM THE EDITOR -

Af­ter spend­ing 2009 in the US tri­alling trend­ing work­outs in a fea­si­bil­ity study for Ukrainian heavy­weight boxer Wladimir Kl­itschko, Tara Simich re­turned to the Perth mar­ket with her “fresh” work­out idea.

Fast-for­ward five years and her unique work­outs can now be found in places as far flung has Saudi Ara­bia, Fin­land and Lon­don. There are 500 Konga classes world­wide that hap­pen each week!

Now Tara is look­ing for in­struc­tors to start in New Zealand.

Tara felt there was a gap in the fit­ness mar­ket, which was heav­ily mo­nop­o­lised by Les Mills and Zumba.

“Ev­ery­one is just so time-poor th­ese days – in an hour work­out, you want to leave drenched in sweat. We use all lat­est hip hop and dance tracks rather than typ­i­cal aerobics mu­sic and we change it all up ev­ery four weeks so you never get bored,” she said.

Tara has quickly gone from film­ing work­outs in her mum’s lounge room, work­ing at Price­wa­ter­house­Coop­ers in an ad­vi­sory role and study­ing eco­nomics at Curtin Univer­sity, to now head­ing up one of the world’s lead­ing group fit­ness providers – at only 24.
