Age 21FOUNDERS: FEMI & FANTA JONES
The Jones Sisters are the founders of a youth fitness program that teaches children how to swim using track and dance movements that emulate the different swim strokes. These double edge swords are athletic artists as well as twin sisters who use their passion to cut through the water. With a background in competitive dancing and versed in medicinal food sources/properties these collegians developed a program that fused their fields of expertise. Since childhood their father, a holistic herbalist, has been grooming their dietary habits. Well over over 10,000 hours of concentrated research, he champions that food is your medicine.
Rooted in academia and athletic principles, their core values stem from both parents. Their mother, a track and field scholarship recipient, graduated to become an educator and a juvenile sports coordinator. As children of an athletic coach naturally the twins attended interactive camps since early childhood gaining an insightful understanding of the needs of the participants.
Fanta, the youngest of the pair and Aquatic Director, has been a life guard in summer facilities and sports clubs in NYC for the past 2 years. She also teaches mixed level aerobic classes for children and adolescents. Much like her mother, swimming was a field that she excelled in during her college years. As Artistic Coordinator, Femi has choreographed over 30 competitive pieces for juvenile marching bands and composed dance summer camps. They have realized that active kids make active adults and early introduction sets the tone for an overall active life style.
