About Founder - Clemence Albert
Now, he has taken things a step further by developing Dance Fitness as a core routine through his own establishment, Fitness Beatz. Clemence has his very own selection of Zumba® and international song tracks and choreography which make his classes stand out from the rest. These, in fact, are the key reasons that attract more and more people to his classes. You are sure to sweat it out and burn those calories in a fun and engaging way, like never before. You gotta try it to believe it!!
“What I love about Dance Fitness is the notion of exercise in disguise,” says Clemence. “It’s an exercise format that’s fun and easily accessible to people of all ages, regardless of fitness or dance experience levels.”
Fitness Beatz, established in 2013 by founder Clemence Albert, is the product of his passion and love for Dance, Music and Fitness. From a very young age, Clemence had developed a deep interest in dance. He credits the ever inspirational King of Pop, Michael Jackson as his biggest influence and reason for his passion for dance.
Clemence further developed this interest by entering the dance and media industry during his teenage years. He then formed a dance group and started performing in variety shows for Mediacorp and actively participated in dance competition and events. He was also the sole choreographer for many dance events. In 2001, Clemence had a major transformation in his life when he signed on as a Regular to serve the nation. Due to work commitment and an extended overseas posting, Clemence had to put his passion for music and dance on hold. He still maintained his fitness by working out in the gym often but he yearned to go back to his glory days of dancing. This would eventually cause him to make a bold career switch. In 2011, Clemence left his stable career where he had been for over a decade, to pursue his dreams.
Unfortunately by then, he had gained a lot of weight and was a hefty 83kg. He knew that he had to do something about his weight or risk experiencing serious health issues. He then started the typical routine of running and working out at the gym. Clemence was constantly in search of a more appealing fitness programme to suit his needs and interest: one which involved Dance and Music.
A year later, he found the magic formula. Thanks to Beto Perez (Founder of Zumba® Program) and ZES Michael Thomas, Clemence’s quest to find the best routine that suited him, was finally over. Zumba® fulfilled his many needs: Dance, Music, Fitness, Fun, Opportunities to Network and so much more. He then enrolled for the Zumba® Instructor Course and kick-started his journey of inspiring people to lose weight the way he did through Zumba® Dance Fitness. He lost a whopping 11 kg in just a year of teaching Zumba® Dance Fitness. And, he had so much fun doing it!
