Owner of Secret Physique® and class instructor Jenny Anania, grew up dancing with her 2 older sisters and later moved on to competitive dancing. She danced at college and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science and a minor in Business. Jenny then became a New England Patriots Cheerleader and had the honor of cheering on the sidelines at Superbowl XXXVI. She then began her modeling and fitness path while appearing in calendars and catalogs while cheering for the Patriots.
Jenny decided to move to Los Angeles to further her career in dance and enjoy the Hollywood lifestyle. She soon joined the Purrfect Angelz, an LA based performance dance group, which gave her the opportunity to travel all over the country performing for many different venues and events including: trade shows, sporting events, music videos, music award shows, commercials and charitable functions. Jenny was also one of the managers of the world famous Viper Room, on Sunset Blvd for the four years she lived in LA.
Her passion for fitness led her to become a fitness model and appear in magazines and workout videos such as Crunch Fitness, Men's Health Magazine, Fit Tv's All Star Workouts, Body by Jake, and The Firm. Also while in LA, Jenny discovered "barre", also known as the Lotte Berk Method, which many celebrities, and aspiring actors and actresses were using to slim down and tone up. The technique combined ballet, Pilates and yoga, and would totally reshape their bodies, creating a sleek, dancer's body. She was amazed at the results, and fell in love with this unique workout that she found to be different than any other. It was a perfect mix of fitness and dance.
Jenny then moved home to be closer to her family, and share this method she found by opening Secret Physique®. After opening her first studio in 2008, she was chosen as a lululemon athletica ambassador and has enjoyed taking part in their community events, and sharing their manifesto with others. The business name "Secret" comes from the book "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne, where putting your mind to believing that thoughts become things, and you can reach any goal you set your mind to! She opened her 2nd studio in Quincy in October 2011, and her 3rd studio in Hingham in November 2012, and there are more studios in the future for Secret Physique®. Jenny is also POUND-Rockout.
