ABOUT JADYN REDDY
I’m a cat mom, fiancé, professional dancer that has toured the word, Barre/Pilates instructor and owner of ReddyFit, LLC. But beyond that, I am a kind and self-driven individual that has a tremendous passion for fitness, health and wellness.
I am going to break down my story for you, on how I went from dancer, to employee, to now 26 year old business owner.
As long as I can remember, I have lived and breathed dance. Dance became my identity at a very young age and I knew that it would be my career. Little did I know what actually came with the job description… to be SKINNY. Being a ballet dancer required you to be a certain way and I just thought that was how it was supposed to be. That working out for hours at the gym in addition to dancing and extreme dieting was something every ballet dancer just did. I didn’t actually realize I had an issue until half way through my sophomore year of college when my friends and family showed concern for my well-being. And let me tell you, I fought it for a very long time.
That process was a pivotal moment in my life. I had realized that I had an eating disorder. For years after, I struggled with body image. It affected my relationships with friends, significant others, food and my self-confidence. This was when I found therapy and I realized just how important mental health truly is. I came to an understanding that you simply can’t have a healthy relationship with working out if you don’t have a healthy relationship with yourself.
Back in 2016, I had the brand name ReddyFit in my head but knew that dance came first so I didn’t want to push forward with the idea nor did I have a clear idea of what I wanted it to be at the time. Originally, it was my own personal blog that I created where I posted about the food I was nourishing my body with post eating disorder (oh & celiac disease diagnosis). It was a way for me to keep myself accountable for fueling my body and getting a better grasp on nutrition. I did it for a while, until my professional dance career took off. From 2018-2020 I toured throughout Europe with SweetBird Productions shows of Rock The Ballet X and Romeo & Juliet. Then, COVID hit.
I got sent home from tour, jobless and not knowing when I would ever get the chance to dance again. After a few weeks of doing absolutely nothing besides taking Pilates classes, I realized that I needed to do something. That rent wasn’t just going to pay for itself. And, I knew that I didn’t want to work in any other field that didn’t involve fitness, health and wellness. I also knew that being an employee and teaching dance, barre and pilates full time wasn’t going to fulfill me either.
So, I decided to make the leap and start a fitness brand that focuses both on the mental and physical aspects of working out.
REDDYFIT is a fun, challenging, grounding, upbeat, positive, inspiring and motivating environment. It brings you a fitness boutique vibe experience, at affordable prices all from the comfort of your own home. & of course, we focus on toning, strengthening and sweating, but we also focus on mind-body connection, breath and connectivity. My vision with REDDYFIT is to bring a sense of community and support to each other through this crazy whirl, wind of life. We all need to breathe, eat and move to live so why not do it together?
