Meet Wasidah Francois
Wasidah “ Francois is a certified personal trainer, group certified exercise instructor, and national-qualified figure competitor who enjoys working with women and encouraging them to get healthy through exercise. Her background in both fitness and fashion make her a unique, marketable ambassador to lend her knowledge to brands, consumers, and as an expert speaker at events.
Wasidah always brings energy, enthusiasm, and positivity into each of her fitness classes, helping her students reach their peak potential during their workout by sharing encouragement, words of wisdom, and music that motivates. It’s why many of her students keep coming back for her group exercise classes at New York Sports Club, where she’s currently a Spinning instructor and boot camp instructor.
Wasidah got her start in the fitness industry in 2012 as a membership sales rep for New York Sports Clubs. After deciding she didn’t want to be in sales, she completed a Spinning mentorship at Equinox the following year. In 2014, she became a Spinning instructor at 24 Hour Fitness before joining New York Sports Clubs as a group fitness instructor that same year. Wasidah is also an instructor for “Plus One Health Management,” a private label gym business for a number of very high-end New York clients, including Goldman Sachs.
While Wasidah enjoys working with men and women of all sizes and fitness levels, her mission is to encourage women who have curves to love and celebrate their shape while getting them as fit and healthy as possible through her group exercise classes. Wasidah is currently working on her nutrition certification and prides herself on helping women develop an overall healthy and balanced lifestyle. She is also a certified doula.
