WHY DO U-JAM?

We asked WOD U-Jam Instructors (aka UJIs) & U-Jammers what inspired them to join the FamBam. Here's what a few of them had to say.

“I was really struggling right before I found U-Jam. After my first class, even though I didn’t know a single person, I felt like I was home! I never would have imagined the people it would bring into my life! It gave me a family. I found my sister soul mates (cheesy? I know, but it’s for reals!). It also helped me find myself again. U-Jam allows me to express myself in a way that I can’t do anywhere else! My inner beast and stanky self comes out and it’s SO freeing! I love that I get to share my story with others and “pass the torch” and strive to give my students and anyone I meet while at U-Jam the same experience I had! ”

Claire Black, Trainer | @claireeeeblack

“First time I took a class I was HOOOKED! Although at that time I had NO idea that the UJIS were such a tight knit band of supportive instructors!! It truly is like a family and I couldn’t be more grateful!!! 😍😍😍 Plus I met my bestie @claireeeeblack and she has had my back since day 1! 💜💜💜 U-Jam is my happy place, my stress relief, my way to dance as an adult (I never stuck with it as a kid) and my way of helping others achieve their fitness goals!! 🤗 I love this program so much!!”

Dre Fackrell, Instructor | @slay.with.dre

"Before I was an instructor, the energy of U-Jam is what inspired me. I took classes regularly which were great but also experiencing two high energy Master Classes is what really left me on a high. Props to the trainer and Educational Team in the 2nd Master Class that didn’t let me walk away from this opportunity a second time 🙌🏾 Currently as an Instructor, my students are who inspires me and remind me of why I stayed after that 2nd Master class. Knowing that I am changing lives each class and with every single beat is very motivating and a rewarding experience. Thank you @ujamfitness I LOVE MY JOB! 💜💜💜⁠"⁠

Erika Wright, Jam KrU | @missgetitwright 

"U-Jam, for me, challenges me so much on every level. When I got exposed to this fitness, the music, the energy, the people this format encompasses, I was completely blown away and humbled. It actually intimidated me the first time I experienced it and thought I could never teach this format. What is also amazing about U-Jam is how it unites people from all walks of life. U-Jam is inclusive, it's inspiring, and it's a welcoming comm-UNITY. All the things that makes this format so special, and I am honored to continue inspiring others in their journey."⁠
