History of JH Fitness

Owner and Founder Jenny had been teaching fitness in the community for 7 years, but always felt something was missing from her career. She finally realised she wanted the opportunity to create her own business and bring community fitness to different areas of Nottingham.

After a talk with her close friend and fitness mentor Mel Bridger (creator of Beatz Fitness), she decided to take the plunge and in February 2019, JH Fitness was born (albeit with a slightly different name). Jenny started it with no logo, no classes and not much of a clue. She was very fortunate to have be given the opportunity to take over a class that was running in Netherfield and make it her own and JH Fitness then started to take shape and become a reality.

The launch of Glow Beatz which was JH Fitness' first class was arranged and promoted.
In April 2019 Glow Beatz and JH Fitness officially made its debut to the world and the launch was covered by Notts TV.
With the help of the very first team member, admin staff Danielle, the next week was even better and it grew from there.
After the success of Glow Beatz, Jenny wanted to see where else she could take the business and decided to take a leap of faith and launch a very new and untested class, PWR Beatz.

After a shaky start, it found it's feet and following on from there was the launches of Freestyle Fitness Yoga, Rockbox Fitness and Broadway Boogie.

A great community spirit was born which grew and grew and became home to a lot of people who wanted to make friends and feel at home with the bonus of getting fit.

In February 2020, a new instructor joined the team. A regular participant of JH Fitness, Lucy, made the leap and trained to become a Beatz instructor. She is a welcome addition to the team and is loved by all JH Fitness class members for her perky and fun teaching style and outgoing and friendly personality.

While JH Fitness is small right now, there is hope for it to keep growing and growing and as long as the people of Nottingham keep coming, JH Fitness will always be there to motivate, keep you moving and make you healthy and fit and fall in love with exercise again and again!
