Get To Know STRONG by Zumba® Lead Master Trainer Ai Lee

Ai Lee Syarief is the epic Lead Master Trainer for music-led, high-intensity program STRONG by Zumba®. She co-created the workout and if you’ve taken a class, you know it pushes you past your limits and leaves you feeling completely empowered. With its burpees, push-ups, planks, punches, and jumps all synchronized to music, there’s just nothing like a #SBZ class. And there’s NO ONE like Ai Lee.

As co-creator of STRONG by Zumba, Ai Lee is responsible for educating all the master trainers of the program, teaching them new routines, correct form, and modifications for each class-goers’ fitness level. Recently, she even worked with Grammy-nominated DJ/producer Steve Aoki to create an original, exclusive song specifically for the class. Ai Lee provided Aoki with a silent routine (i.e., no music included) – he then watched the workout over and over to score a song that perfectly matched all the moves in the routine. Read more about that here.
