The ever popular genre of Soca is a combination of Caribbean soul music and calypso. The strong drums, horns, and steel pan give the feel of being at the Carnival celebrations of the West Indies and you cannot help but move.
These up tempo beats and rhythms from the many island of the Caribbean have been synchronized with exercise to form a fresh new way to get fit called "SocaFitUSA".formally known as “Socacise”.
SocaFitUSA focuses on the core areas, such as waist, hips and leg strength. These can sometimes be the "problem areas" and with SocaFitUSA the inches are the first to go!!
meet your socafit USA instructor & founder!
My name is Keisha Bridgeman and I am the instructor and founder of SocaFitUSA here in Charlotte, North Carolina. My roots lye in Grenada West Indies and I am proud and grateful to be a part of this culture. I have been in dance for over 20 years of my life, and it is something I truly enjoy. I am a certified boot camp/group exercise instructor, and have been the sole SocaFitUSA instructor in North Carolina since 2009.
I have been featured in the Charlotte Observer under LiveWell Carolina’s, in association with Carolina's Health Care System; the largest Health care system in the Carolina's, and have worked with numerous organizations showcasing SocafitUSA as a fun & effective option for fitness. I have encouraged and motivated every student that attends my class to push themselves beyond what they think they can do, to experience better health and stamina. I believe that a passion to help others is rewarding on both sides, and when I started these classes my goal was to assist people in their journey to better health. I also wanted to begin a new and fresh way to exercise with the encouraged feeling of movement and less focus on the exercise itself. This class is fun, fulfilling and full of surprises, so much so that students will forget that they are working out....
