Jari Love is a certified personal trainer and the creator of Get RIPPED!®, the five-phase, no-nonsense full body workout system designed to help people of any fitness level shed unwanted pounds in just weeks. The hot-selling and critically acclaimed Get RIPPED!® series enables individuals to burn up to three times more calories than the traditional weight-training program and has received rave reviews from fitness critics throughout North America since the first title debuted in late 2005.
After many years as a recording artist, model, and actor, Jari obtained her Personal Fitness Trainer (PFT) certification and began working with clients as a personal trainer. A competitive runner since her teens, health and fitness has always been central to Jari’s life. However, with increasing responsibilities over time she had fewer hours to devote to training, so she used her knowledge of physiology to create a results-oriented workout for the busy parent and business person whose goal is to maintain peak fitness. Jari named this five-phase program Get RIPPED!® after the weight-lifting term meaning increased muscle and decreased body fat. After many of her personal clients were able to meet lifelong fitness goals as a result of doing the program, Jari decided that it was possible to develop group fitness classes based on the same concepts.
