MW: Please introduce yourself?
JH: Hello Everyone! My name is Jana Hare, Fitness Professional, and owner of Dumbbell Bombshell Fitness
MW: How long have you been into fitness?
JH: I’ve always been active throughout childhood, during High School and my collegiate career, I was on the Dance team, but I have been teaching group fitness for nearly 8 years now.
MW: Do you teach fitness?
JH: Yes! I teach all sorts of things.. I have acquired experience and/or specialties in Zumba, Hip Hop dance, Boxing and Kickboxing, weight-training, core-focused training, bootcamps, aqua fitness, spin, mixed martial arts cardio, and a focus on aerial (suspended) yoga.
MW: Give me the way to lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks?
JH: Nutrition! And 3 days of weight-training with alternating 2-3 days of cardio in between. Dedicate an hour to each workout, and do High Intensity Interval Training on the cardio days. smile emoticon Enjoy!
MW: How did you get involved with Next Fitness Star?
JH: So, I had heard about the contest through a fitness mentor, and she told me “I would be a perfect fit”, and so I hired a videographer to follow me around to showcase all my different fitness disciplines, and we created a short video and submitted to Women’s Health in January during the “submission” phase, and they saw my passion and drive.
MW: Give me the process from start to now?
JH: The submission phase was about 2 months long, and they narrowed it down to the final 5 in March. I received the most wonderful email as I was doing cardio, and I just happened to check my phone, and I started crying! We were flown to NYC for a photo shoot in April, and were filmed all throughout the process, between make-overs, and experiencing NY, it was a dream. And we were flown back in June to showcase our workout moves at a Fitness Event hosted by Women’s Health. And we are now currently in full swing of the ‘Voting phase’!
MW: What does Next Fitness Star lintel?
JH: The winner will receive a DVD contract with Women’s Health Magazine, and become a contributor to the magazine for health and wellness tips! A fitness professional’s dream.
