Meet the Model: Jennifer Nasab
Jennifer Nasab is a personal trainer and GX24 instructor at 24 Hour Fitness, and it seems like there isn’t a movement she cannot do. Donkey kicks? Extended Side Angle? Pull-ups? No problem—and if she hasn’t done it before, she’s game to try it. We asked her our burning questions about her passion for fitness and more.
24Life: What led you to a career in fitness?
JN: I’m a registered dietitian and worked in a hospital in Montreal for five years before moving to California. At that time, I was teaching Les Mills BODYPUMP two or three times per week. When I started teaching for 24 Hour Fitness here in the East Bay, I loved the members’ energy and their love for fitness. I’m now a full-time hybrid trainer and instructor. Nothing is more rewarding than sharing what I love most doing and seeing people get stronger and hitting their goals. My life goal is to inspire!
24Life: Your most memorable moment with a client or member?
JN: There are too many! Every time I hear about a new muscle they see, or hitting a new PR in their 10K, or being more comfortable in the plane seat … a first pull-up, adding weight to squats, hitting their goal weight and setting new goals … all these moments are memorable and always make me so happy. I tear up a little; I’m very emotional.
24Life: You have 24 minutes to work out—what’s your go-to?
JN: Tabata: 20 seconds on/10 seconds off; eight rounds. Push-ups, pull-ups, burpees, squats, squat jumps, plyo lunges. Done!
24Life: What’s your favorite move?
24Life: Your least favorite?
24Life: What’s your superpower?
JN: I wish I could fly, but my real superpower is my determination. I have a very strong mind, and it always pushes me to go further and do better, to be the best me I can be.
24Life: Food or song you can’t live without?
JN: Peanut butter every day! My pick-me-up song is Luke Bryan’s “Knockin’ Boots.” That song makes everything good.
24Life: What’s one thing you wish every member knew?
JN: You CAN do it! You are so much stronger than you think. I say this regularly, but having members believe it would be a game changer.
