When it comes to fitness, finding something that you enjoy and suits your personality and lifestyle is vital to a long and successful relationship.
This was what motivated Jen Bily to start Life Extension, a fitness centre that aims to offer an environment where you can find a form of training that suits you, whether in a small group class environment or through private and semi private sessions.
“I’ve been doing mobile personal training for years, so it’s exciting to have a home base and for my clients to have a home base,” she says.
Jen still teaches private classes on site as well as off site should clients request it, but she has also gathered together a group of likeminded fitness professionals who teach classes at Life Extension, ranging from Box-Fit and Yoga to Zumba and Chair-lesque, so your fitness regime can be as unique as you are.
“I am trying to offer something that people like and get – fitness is an individual thing, it is about finding something that you like and sticking with it, but we want to get results as well,” says Jen.
She teaches classes including power circuit, physique, as well as a fit sport tennis class that focuses on the fitness and skills required for tennis, with the intention of adding more sports specific classes in future.
“I like to keep the classes small so I can really monitor what’s going on,” says Jen.
“I try to still make it very personalised – there will be other people in the room and you might be doing the same exercises, but I can guide you, change up your weights or how you do the exercise,” she says.
With the different teachers bringing their expertise together under one roof it makes it easy to change up your fitness routine if you ever feel that you are losing motivation. However, with Jen on your case that is not too likely to happen.
“I like to keep the classes varying and challenging,” she says.
The gym even includes a kids’ corner, where children can sit and do their homework or play while mum takes part in a fitness class.
“I’ve found that the clients that miss training sessions, when they do miss the kids are usually involved, so I just like to provide that service. It’s about the lifestyle being healthy, happy and fit as a family as well,” she says.
Of course, Jen says that more often than not the kids end up wanting to get involved in the training, which is definitely a positive outcome. Modelling a healthy lifestyle is after all the best way for parents to prevent children from falling victim to the ever increasing child obesity levels in Cayman.
Jen says that the aim of Life Extension is to challenge people and help them succeed in overcoming those challenges.
“I hope when people leave here the feel a little bit tired, but also invigorated, that’s the goal for most exercise programmes. We like to say that this is a place where you can exercise, socialise and revitalise,” says Jen.
