Meet Jan: Our November – February Cover Star!
Have you met Jan? You've probably seen her around Monash Aquatic & Recreation Centre, she's been here since Day 1! Jan is our newest cover star for the November 17 - February 18 Group Fitness Timetable.
Q: How long have you been teaching?
A: I have been an Aqua Instructor for 20 years, specialising in working with Older Adults and people with disabilities.
Q: How long have you been with Active Monash?
A: I’ve been at MARC since day 1... 16 years.
Q: What programs do you teach?
A: I began the first aqua class at MARC and built the program to 16 classes. I often fill in for other aqua instructors & land programs for older adults (recycled teenagers )
Q: Why did you become an instructor?
A: After nursing, including midwifery, for 34 years, I needed a career change, one where I could still help people improve their quality of life, increase their fitness, stay active and fit to remain in own homes and if needing surgery/medical treatment, then their recovery would be quicker and easier, Group Fitness was a perfect fit!
Q: What do you LOVE about Group Fitness?
A: Teaching people to exercise with correct technique and posture, and then having fun with new found friends who enjoy doing the same...That is really enjoying life!
