K.I.S.H. Magazine Exclusive Interview with Jole Gravesande!

KISH: Tell us about you..

Hello, I am Canadian born and raised.  A fitness/wellness enthusiast with a passion for fashion.  I am a Full Time Physiotherapy/Occupational Therapy Assistant, and certified Stott Pilates Instructor/Reformer/Total Barre and TRX Instructor. I am the proud business owner of “Forever Fit by Jole”.  I love to surround myself with positive people that inspire me to be the best version of myself.  My hobbies include but not limited to:  travel, photography, fashion, exploring through nature, trialing out ethnic foods, listening/dancing to music, and relaxing while reading a good book.  I enjoy the simple pleasures that life has to offer.

KISH: What is your dream and how will accomplishing your dream benefit you and others

Jole: My dream is to have the ability to be a fitness and health influencer on global scale.  I want to promote the benefits of Pilates practice to all individuals looking to improve their overall health and fitness.  Pilates is slowly making its mark in the fitness industry but still has not become fully understood by most of the optimal results that can be achieved from the mindful movement exercises.  By accomplishing my dream I would have been able to educate and influence people to make their health and fitness a priority thereby promoting good health and Pilates practice into their lifestyle.  When you are healthy you tend to feel good, be happier and be in a good mental and physical state.

KISH: Who or what inspired you to pursue this dream?

Jole: Working with my rehabilitation patients and Pilates clients have inspired me to fulfill my dream.  By helping individuals fulfill their fitness goals and being a part of their rehab journey gives me a sense of joy and willingness to want to continue on my journey of promoting health and fitness.

KISH: What challenges have you encountered while pursuing your dream?

Jole: I face the challenge of being able to educate the benefits of Pilates.  Trying to encourage people that have never tried it and that are skeptical of the benefits it will play on their body.

KISH: Who or what inspired you to keep pushing regardless of the challenges you’ve encountered?

Jole: By seeing the results and hearing the positive feedback form individuals I work with pushes me to keep promoting and sharing education through in person or my social media platforms.

KISH: Please provide final thoughts/advice for others by finishing this sentence… dream.

Jole: Keep striving to fulfill your dream!
