About Jad

Hi, my name is Jadranka Zivka Marinovic, also known as Jad, I’m a Melbourne-based professional kettlebell sport athlete, a certified kettlebell instructor, personal trainer and mother of two. I specialise in Kettlebell training for fitness, sport and Kettlebell Juggling.

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 farmAs 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 at fashion shows.
