With great joy I would like to dedicate this blog to someone I recently met at Rogue Fitness Cabarete. At first glance she is a petite girl but it is soon clear that she has great strength and her gymnastic abilities can drive a chilling sensation throughout the body. Why? We all carry the potential for greatness, and if we truly desire something, incredible things can be achieved. Lea Toran Jenner is an excellent example of how with perseverance, effort and hard work incredible things can happen. Without hesitation, she stepped into a different world, not for money, but for a sense of inner contentment, fulfillment, and achievement. Testing our borders and waking up every day with a zest for life is what keeps us improving and finally enables us to inspire others and teach what we have learned.
Lea’s artistic life began in childhood, as a hyperactive 5 year old. She started with gymnastics, switched to aerobic gymnastics and eventually ended up on the German national team. At 18 years old, she represented her country at the World Championships and became part of the National Circus School of Montreal.There, she began to fulfill her lifetime dream of specializing in Cyr Wheel.
Here, in Cabarete, Lea is on holiday but even so she has her wheel with her. She has been training almost every day at Rogue, where she continues to practice and put us in awe. We are lucky to be getting a taste of her performance and if you would like to see what we are talking about, check out the video we took of her on youtube.
Not only is the Cyr Wheel incredibly fun for her, but it is also extremely strenuous and requires a lot of hard work. It is a functional training of weight shifting to keep the wheel in motion. It also combines core strength and deep stabilizing of the spinal muscles which are not seen but hold our bodies together. If you like what Lea does, don’t hesitate to visit us and we can arrange lessons for you. She is here for fourteen more days to be an inspiration for everyone. Lea teaches us to never give up and do what we love. See you guys at Rogue!
