Janey graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a degree in International Relations and started a career working in PR for the government in Westminster. 15 years ago Janey had never been to a gym and was a self confessed exercise hater!
A brief stint as a gym member confirmed her hatred for exercise with her experience of un-inspirational trainers and boring and ineffective gym programs. But, a chance aerobics class one morning before work changed her entire attitude to exercise and she discovered that with a friendly, fun and supportive instructor, great music and moves and training with other like-minded women, exercise could be great fun. 18 months later she had quit her job, sold her flat and become an aerobics instructor – everyone thought she’d gone mad!
After spending 18 months teaching a variety of classes including step, spin, aqua, conditioning, aerobics, body pump, body step, body balance and ante/post natal sessions in health clubs across London, she completed her Personal Training diploma in 2003 and set up Fit for a Princess.
