Our trampoline classes are a unique dynamic workout using aerobic exercises on mini trampolines with handle bars. Our classes are run in London and the aim is to make you happy and confident with increased fitness levels.
What is your Hustle and Juggle story?
In 2013 I was diagnosed with Colitis which means when I have a flare up I have frequent visits to A&E, hospital stays, regular doses of medication, IV treatments and a lot of abdominal pain and frequent toilet visits (up to 30 times daily). My illness has been a huge part of my business journey, it is the reason I started it was jumping classes back in my home town of Slovakia that showed me how to have fun again and the other health benefits that jumping brings. It gave me a new lease of life and by starting the business it helped me have a purpose in life again.
It has been a long road and I have worked really hard to succeed. Jumping Julia’s fitness classes are now run in and around London – Canada Water, Old Street and Kensington area and also David Lloyd Gym on Gloucester Road. This year (2016) I have also become an Exclusive Distributor UK for World Jumping. The World Jumping is an original licensing program and a top product based on medical research and practical experience and World Jumping Centres will be opening across the UK, enabling others to start their own business journey too.
What’s your message to anyone reading this to inspire them to keep going and remain visible?
My daily ritual includes meditation, gratitude for what I have and walking. I listen to my mind, body and keep positive. I let go of negative resistance, don’t dwell on things and rely on intuition. I would advise others to do the same.
