New Exclusive: Jari Love Blog
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.
In fact, one of Jari’s latest DVDs – Get Extremely RIPPED! 1000 – was rated a Top Pick by Oprah & Friends satellite radio network personality Gayle King in her “December 2010 Gift Guide” column in Oprah magazine. It also was rated “Best Calorie-Burning Session” in the February 2010 issue of Fitness magazine.
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 Get RIPPED!, 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.
Since the release of the first DVD – Get RIPPED! – in 2005, she has developed a fanatical fan following from consumers and news media alike. Jari’s Get RIPPED! craze was further fueled by the June 2006 release of Get RIPPED! Slim & Lean and Get RIPPED! To the Core, the November 2006 release of Get RIPPED! 1000 and the November 2007 release of Get RIPPED! & Chiseled. Spring 2009 brought along four new and innovative workouts to add to the mix, launching with Get Extremely RIPPED! and following with Get Extremely RIPPED! 1000, Get Extremely RIPPED! Body Rock and Get Extremely RIPPED! Lean Machine.
The popularity of these DVDs have generated unprecedented demand in Canadian health clubs for her personal classes and consistent Top 10 sales rankings month upon month on leading international fitness video websites. In the fitness category, her DVDs have ranked as high as No. 1 on CollageVideo.com.
With fitness critics, Jari and her products have received exemplary reviews, and the accolades continue to stockpile. Jari and her series have been featured in a number of major health and fitness magazines as well as regional and national newspapers throughout North America. Jari’s Get RIPPED! & Chiseled DVD was highlighted in USA Today as one of the top 10 workout videos. She was featured in the New York Times as one of the leading DVD makers, and in the Los Angeles Times as a fitness guru whose “high-intensity ‘Get RIPPED! series tackles the fat by working muscle groups two-by-two.”
Jari’s background as a certified trainer, fitness club owner, author and creator of the successful Get RIPPED! series garnered her a coveted spot on the Fitness Magazine Advisory Board where she previously served as a regular fitness expert for the magazine. Jari also is a frequent contributor for Replay Magazine which is distributed all across Canada. Locally in Calgary, Jari has secured a regular spot as a contributor to ‘Neighbors,’ a section of the Calgary Herald.
