Has Covid-19 rendered your life devoid of physical activity? Intimidated by the challenges of starting a fitness routine? Sumera Garcia-Quadr, founder of Fusion Cardio Toronto, knows how you feel. Due to childhood struggles with conventional exercising as a girl, she wants to make sure that women feel comfortable gaining fitness and expressing themselves physically — through dance.
Dancing to Hip Hop, Latin and 80’s and 90’s pop is what kept me alive. Since this journey, my life has changed in ways that I could never have imagined.”
Dance and Fitness Classes for Women
Numerous Canadian publications have released articles raising awareness to the physical inactivity of Canadians, with females being less active than males. In 2011, Statistics Canada released a study indicating that only 15% of Canadians reached their suggested daily exercise intake, with females being less active than males in both adult and youth groupings (CBC Sports, 2016).

Services include Bollywood and Latin dance, Bollywood dance fitness, PoundFit, Barre and HipHop dance workouts, Mom and baby fitness, kids camps, and wedding dance lessons.
