DANCE MASTER Laura Jefferies – Jete Dance I first began assistant teaching Jazz and Hip Hop at 13 years old. By 16 I was teaching my own classes 20 hours a week! My greatest love and passion is dance and fitness and with that I have created a place where students and teachers can be inspired, have fun, grow personally and technically, have chances to perform and provide endless opportunities under one roof. It really is a dream come true! Within Jete we have a culture that is rich in family values and a safe and relaxing environment. I promise you buy attending any Jete class you will be enriched physically and mentally while building confidence and bringing out your most creativeness. Magic is truly made on on the dance floor.. SEE YOU THERE! Financial Controller Melly English In 2012, I was introduced to the Snap Fitness Head Office team where I worked my way up to Accounts Manager. I now overlook and maintain over 40 accounts, including Fit Futures and manage these businesses alongside some of the best in the industry.One of the greatest things I have learnt from the health and fitness industry is that it starts with yourself. If you look after yourself – body, mind and spirit – you can go on to achieve anything! I endeavour to be someone who my peers, family and future children can look up to, so setting myself high goals in both my work and personal life is something that I do every day. Favourite Place in New Zealand Akaroa Favourite weekend activities Spending time with family and friends, day trips away from the city, camping. What I love about Fit Futures The positive and supportive team dynamic within the workplace and seeing that filter through to the students. Favourite quote or phrases Individual efforts can bring excellence, but only collective efforts can deliver effectively. Personal Trainer, Tutor and Powerlifting Champion Bryn Ealey About Byrn I worked in professional rugby for 18 months as a strength and conditioning coach. I still enjoy training athletes in helping them achieving their goals. Personal training for me was and still is something that I love doing, it gives me deeper meaning as to why I train people. Seeing others improve in all aspects of life is so rewarding and having the opportunity to teach aspiring trainers on how to do the same, is such a rewarding feeling. Favourite Place in New Zealand Anywhere by the beach Favourite weekend activities If not lifting weights, going on dates! What I love about Fit Futures My team, everyone is so supportive and sharing the common goal of seeing others grow. Favourite quote or phrases Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
