About our Founder - Jan Batkin

Hello, I'm Jan Batkin.  I have over 26 years of experience in the fitness and wellness industry. I am a National Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Group Fitness Instructor. I pride myself in helping women become "ageless." I believe that as we age, we need to perform the correct exercises for our bodies.  This way, we stay injury-free and build bone and muscle mass.  Exercise can be fun and exciting if taught the proper way. Allow me to inspire, motivate and empower you to be the best version of yourself at any age!

Summer Hardy, Zumba Fusion Instructor

My name is Summer Hardy.  I am a  Group Fitness Instructor and Fitness Coach. My career in fitness began just over 7 years ago. I love to dance and started my fitness career teaching Zumba and added Aqua Aerobics, HIIT Training, BootCamp and more. I believe fitness should be fun and you should have a smile on your face while doing it.  I teach Zumba Fusion at JB  Fit Club…nervous to try it out?…don’t be! I promise to make it a fun, effective, positive experience. I have heard all the concerns you could imagine: “I have 2 left feet”, “I have no rhythm”, “my knees are bad”. I keep the choreography simple and there’s no jumping required. You will quickly memorize the routines and have no problem following along. Zumba is a blast and I can’t wait to party with you!

Amanda Bernardino, Walking Guide 

I’m Amanda Bernardino. I’ve been taking fitness classes and walking a variety of paths consistently for the past 9 years. I enjoy being outside and finding new trails in our area to explore. 


While walking in the park one day last year, I met Jan as she was teaching a fitness class. I was thrilled to discover a group of women exercising together and supporting each other.    I found having a supportive group of friends encourages me to work harder.


Sheila Hostetler, Walking Guide

 I have been a fan of walking outdoors for as long as I can remember.  I love  to cycle and Spinning class which is how I met Jan B. who taught the class.  When COVID  struck and we were all at home, Jan started an exercise in the park program and the walking outings were an outgrowth.   What a great way to connect with new friends, talk and get outside. Find me on Tuesday and Friday on the trail of our beginning walking program.
