ZenFit YouTube Channel
ZenFit is a mindful, beginner level exercise class designed to be accessible. As one of our students said, "It's like a full-body workout while meditating!" We do full-body strength-training exercises at a calm pace, focusing on breath, form, and technique. All videos are saved on ZenFit’s channel, so you can use them anytime.
ZenFit is developed by Alina Liao, Founder of Zenit. I don't believe we should measure fitness by how exhausted you feel at the end of a workout. I believe fitness is about learning to listen to your body, so you can build healthy, sustainable routines that honor your body. My experience as a competitive athlete and NCAA Division I gymnast gave me a deep appreciation for the value of listening to my body, and the importance of technique in exercising. I've now developed ZenFit to create an exercise class that incorporates mindfulness and is loving, community-oriented, and empowering.
In our one hour together, we start with a body-scan meditation, warm up, do a full-body circuit of strengthening movements, covering our core muscle groups, and wind down with stretching and a body-affirming meditation. The vibe is calm and encouraging. I want you to walk away feeling accepted, supported, and inspired by what your body can do.
