JENNIFER ATILEMILE

Signed with IMG , MiLK, and BELLA, Jenn is one of our OG Peachies. Since moving to London, and then NYC, her modelling career has exploded. We are so proud of Jenn as we watch her grow into the super star she was destined to be, all the while keeping a strong hold on her ethical views - continuing to be a proud advocate for racial and body diversity. Luckily, J can still workout with us online! Check out her blog here.

You just have to realise that with modelling and generally in life, not everyone is going to like you, and that’s ok.

It’s important to remember that you should exercise because you want to, rather than to change something about you! 

What's your approach to health and fitness?


Do what you can when you can! It’s super important to move your body, but everyone leads busy lives. I travel a lot for work, so I’m often jet lagged or not able to get to my usual work out spots. If it’s 20 min intervals on the treadmill or Pilates on a towel in my hotel room, I’ll make the time! It’s important to remember that you should exercise because you want to, rather than to change something about you! 

Has your approach to health and fitness changed with age?


Absolutely. I used to exercise to burn a certain amount of calories a day, now I move because I can feel tension or stress in my body and I want to release it. Or I’m feeling mentally blocked and know the endorphins will change my mood instantly! Or I just have a lot of energy and I know I need to burn it!

How do you handle industry pressure as a model? 


At first it was hard. I worried a lot about what other people thought of me - meaning I took a lot of the criticism personally, which was really bad for me mentally. You just have to realise that with modelling and generally in life, not everyone is going to like you, and that’s ok. So long as you’re confident and like yourself, the right people, and jobs will come to you!

What do you love about training at Peaches?

I’m really lazy so I like something quick that makes me sweat and feels like I worked hard. Peaches does that. 1000%. Plus being overseas, I love working out with Tori and Bec because it feels like they’re in the room with me! Such amazing energy.

I would do almost anything for a good chocolate mousse. 

What are your favourite results from training at Peaches?


Definitely the improvement in perkiness in my booty, as well as my waist. Amazing definition. 

What's your favourite meal ever?


That’s really hard. That’s not fair! Haha. Probably chocolate mousse. Is that a meal? I would do almost anything for a good chocolate mousse. 

What's one thing we'd be surprised to learn about you?

 

That I sing! I started performing arts when I was about 5 years old. Tbh, a lot of people aren’t surprised when I tell them that though! Apparently I’m very dramatic ;)
