As an individual & brand, we're striving to create an inclusive global fitness community looking to grow their positive impact on the world around them. We aim to do this by building their own confidence & well-being by bettering their physical & mental health, through fitness.
Growing up I was going through a really tough season toward the end of my teen years into my early twenties, which altered my career choices. Having faced a cancelled family immigration, being diagnosed clinically depressed, having a father who was a functional alcoholic, my parents getting divorced and then my father passing away very unexpectedly all within a very short time frame.
A lot had happened in a short space of time and it felt like the floor had been pulled out from beneath my feet – I realised I had no idea who I was and what I wanted any more. I struggled with a victim mentality for a long time. It felt as if my identity had been taken away from me and everything I had envisioned for myself when I was at high school – go to university, study occupational therapy – was no longer of any interest. It was a terrifying and lonely space to be in.
Rikki’s mother (now my mother-in-law!) invited me to attend a group fitness class with her, and from the very first class it absolutely changed my life! The sense of community and support from the people in my group fit classes became a daily anchor of self-affirmation and empowerment. The physical and mental benefits of exercise began reshaping my attitude towards life. The group fitness coach at my gym took me under her wing. She became my mentor – she coached me through mental and physical wellness and I’ll forever be grateful for this. She helped refocus my value and purpose. I knew from then, group fitness would be the right vehicle for me to help others the way this woman had done for me.
8 years later, I've been fortunate to have a successful and rewarding career in the Health & Fitness space. I've been blessed to serve as a Global Ambassador for the largest group fitness company in the World - Les Mills. I have also led the floor presenting at multiple international fitness events in the USA, Japan, Russia, Spain, South Africa, China, Germany, Singapore, UAE, New Zealand, Australia, Greece, Canada to name a few. This has given me access to such a diverse set of cultural relationships that I'm eternally grateful for. In addition to my passion for teaching group fitness classes in regular local gyms, I've also been fortunate to work with prominent brands like Reebok & Cosmopolitan.
Rikki & I decided in 2020 with the Corona-Virus outbreak, national lock-downs and having our first-born Ella Skye Jäck, that we wanted to bring the gift of fitness and the powerful benefits it can harness to a broader online community. We also wanted to bring communities from around the world together, with a common goal of improving & learning from one another. Everything we offer our community today was created out of personal challenges that we needed solutions for.
While each persons journey is completely unique, we believe any physical activity and the right nutrition will at a minimum reap benefits and improve your confidence, if not change or save your life!
Love & Light,
