We had the good fortune of connecting with Jennifer Jordan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jennifer, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I honestly didn’t even plan on starting my own business. I just wanted to teach my fitness classes in a different capacity and benefit from it. I ended up creating a brand that fit and stuck so I decided to turn it into a legitimate business.


Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
JJ BodyWERK, LLC. offers a variety of group fitness classes: Zumba/Dance
Toning and Sculpting
HIIT training/Bootcamp

I got to where I am today by simply stepping out on faith and letting the universe work its magic. You see, I spent years in the past sowing good seeds, practically teaching classes for free, and was happy receiving love and appreciation in return. So in turn, when I decided to step out on my own under my own brand it was destined to flourish. I left LA Fitness in January this year and BOOM, JJ BodyWERK launched in February.

I made a few phone calls to different gyms and studios in search of leasing space to conduct my classes. Behold! I found Tadda’s Fitness! Located in Decatur. It’s perfect! Everything about the facility is accommodating from the owner (Tasha), the staff and the large space!

What sets me apart from others is that I create a comfortable atmosphere where you can feel confident and welcomed while giving you an extremely high energy/exhilarating experience. My classes are fun! It’s a party! It’s a fellowship of positive vibes.

I still have my day job in IT Project Management so my only struggle is juggling both jobs while tending to my 7 year old daughter. Besides that, no complaints! Business good!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Everyone of my class attendees from LA Fitness! There’s too many to name but this group of people inspired me to brand my craft and turn it into a business. Many of them followed me over at my new location and became my client.
