Getting Fit with Jennifer Galardi

If you are worried about gaining a few unwanted pounds as the holidays approach, a Washington and Lee alumna has created a gift that might just be what you need. Jennifer Galardi of the Class of 1996 has just produced a new DVD called “Ballet Body” and subtitled “5 ‘Feel-Good’ Workouts.” Jennifer and the new DVD are featured in a story in the Scranton Times-Tribune near her hometown of Abington, Pa. Among other insights, Jennifer says that she got started in the fitness field by teaching aerobics classes during her undergraduate days at W&L. And she’s certainly taken that initial experience to new heights, not only with her own DVD but by starring in a number of other DVDs produced by one of  gyms, Crunch, where she teaches in Los Angeles and, recently, by co-starring with reality TV star Kim Kardashian in the “Fit In Your Jeans by Friday” series of DVDs. She has also taught dance and fitness classes at Sports Club LA and Equinox. You can catch a quick preview of Jennifer’s work on this video on which she teaches “The Galardi Move.” In addition, you can find a number of videos starring Jennifer on this Exercise TV site.
