Hi, my name is Jadranka Zivka Marinovic, also known as Jad, I am a mother of two beautiful boys, certified personal trainer, Professional kettlebell sport athlete, and I specialise in Kettlebell lifting for fitness and sport. I am very excited to be able to share with you my fitness journey and also help you with your fitness goals training with kettlebells anywhere anytime.


A little bit about my background, how I got into kettlebell training and transformation!

My life has revolved around my passion for lifting weights and fitness. As a child I did gymnastics and dancing, but I also had an adventure living in Croatia between the ages of 12 and 14. During those years I discovered my true strength, and had lots of chances to test it out living on a farm. As a teenager, at 15 years old, I started lifting weights and wanted to inspire women to lift weights. As a builder’s daughter, I am no stranger to lifting odd heavy objects on site, at a property development. In 1992 I began my career in the fitness industry as an Aerobics Instructor, and I have 25 years of conventional strength training experience. Basically I was what they call a ‘gym junkie’, training 6 days a week for 2 hours a day minimum. I also have a background as a fitness bikini model and dancer. I discovered the kettlebell following the birth of my first son and returned to the fitness industry to teach and motivate others with their fitness and health goals. Training and healthy eating habits helped me drop all of the 34 kg I put on during my first pregnancy. This transformation training with kettlebells not only lead me to competing as an athlete in Kettlebell Sport but also get me into the best shape of my life. To date I have been competing and hosting kettlebell sport events since 2010 competing in several international competitions. Some of my achievements include becoming Australia’s 1st Master of Sport International Class which is the highest rank you can achieve in Kettelbell Sport, 1st Kettlebell Marathon World Champion and pioneer plus more.
