Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Jeannine came to San Diego by way of Los Angeles, where she began her career in fitness, health and wellness. Jeannine's early training in indoor cycling and yoga included an extensive, hands-on apprenticeship at one of LA’s premier spin studios. The intense training of those initial certification courses taught Jeannine not only the athletic fundamentals of those particular disciplines, but also ignited a passion for fitness instruction of all varieties.
She developed this passion, as well as her experience and expertise, at the Beverly Hills Country Club, where she also became an NASM Certified Personal Trainer. Eventually adding Pilates and barre to her fitness repertoire, Jeannine's unique combination of certifications and training have enhanced and honed her skills as a trainer and instructor for students of all levels. Jeannine strives to amplify her student’s physical performance through the integration of breath and movement, as well as increased flexibility, stamina and strength.
Each class with Jeannine at Studio Cybrid will bring new and inspiring music, tons of individual encouragement and most importantly – you'll have so much fun, you won't even realize how hard you're working! Jeannine's students can expect dedication, commitment, and a genuine desire to help each and every one achieve his or her fitness goals – whether it's weight loss, injury rehabilitation, or a general increase in health and wellness – Jeannine will get you there!
