Interviews

Jennifer Bexley – aka Jennuine Fitness

 

Meet Jen, a Fitness and Yoga instructor based on The White Isle of Ibiza. 

 

Here is her Q & A!

 

Q:  Hi Jen, what made you choose a career in fitness and yoga?  Is it something you’ve always wanted to do?

A:  I was an active teenager and was always into fitness, particularly swimming and running.  After leaving school, I started to train like crazy as I wanted to join the Army.  I ended up injuring myself so I decided to sign up in college to do an NVQ in Administration instead, and my workplace training was in a Sports Centre which I loved!  I was told that if I got my Lifeguard certificate, they’d offer me a job (which I did) and then I promptly took a Swimming Teacher course! The injury was a blessing really.

Q:  What made you decide on moving to, and pursuing a career on the island?

A:  I moved to Ibiza in 2009 to try my dab hand at DJ’ing.   I had been living and DJ’ing in Australia for 5 years and I came to attempt to pave my way into the club scene. However, due to too many late nights and inconsistency with work, I found my way back to the fitness industry.

Q:  What makes you stand out from other fitness and yoga instructors out there?

A:  I believe that my training is different.  I motivate and encourage people to really try their best in the sessions.  I pay close attention to posture and alignment, and also the way that the exercises are executed.  On top of that,  I absolutely love training and helping people to make a positive change. I am passionate about what I do, and others can see that.  It always makes me glow when I am talking about, or teaching fitness.

 

Q:  What’s been your biggest career achievement to date?

A:  I am still working on that one 😉 Watch this space….

Jen offers both group bookings, and personal training sessions with dedicated programmes

Q:  If you had to choose, what would be your favourite venue to teach from and why?

A:  I would love to do a massive fitness class at Ushuaia Beach Hotel.  Initially I  wanted to do a massive jump rope class but to be honest, any kind of fitness session would be awesome!  I’d have a DJ playing banging music to get everyone energised and there would be motivational images on the LED screens too. We’d just get out there and have it!

Q:  What’s your plans work-wise over the winter?

A:  A lot! I currently have personal training clients,  and I’m also running my fitness and Yoga classes both in San Antonio and at Fred’s Finca in Salinas. https://fredsfincaibiza.com/

I am continually working on my website jennuinefitness.com by creating new and exciting blog posts for people to enjoy.  It’s a new blog, so I have my work cut out developing all the content right now.  On the side, I am working with a new online training app so that I can help more people.  It’s quite exciting as I create the workouts and sign clients up to a specific program.  I can track the client’s progress through photos,  measurements,  group chats and Skype calls, plus I can even see when the client signs in for their workout, should they choose to let me see that is!

And if that’s not enough, I’m also busy working on a new brand called Fitness & Yoga Ibiza with a very good friend of mine https://www.thehighs.life/ where we will be delivering holiday makers and workers all their fitness and wellness needs in one.

keeping up the pace

Q: What can we expect to see from you next summer work-wise?

A: I can promise you that you will see me providing fitness and Yoga sessions with complete dedication and absolute passion to to all those willing to take part.

A:  Jennuine, Sustainable, Motivating, Strong, Confident
