85 year old fitness instructor keeps students on their toes
(OC Register) – Beejay Janiga always learns the names of the many students who take her fitness classes, although she’s likely to address them as young man or young lady.
Janiga, 85, teaches five classes a week at the Tustin Area Senior Center, where many of her students are her junior.
But no one seems younger at heart than Janiga, who laughs, hugs and applies pink lipstick before a work out.
On a morning last week, Janiga played upbeat music across many genres as she led 61 “mature adults,” plus a woman’s young granddaughter in stretching, cardio and weight conditioning.
After a segment with resistance bands Janiga, who lives in Tustin, said, “OK, kids, enough resting. A little aerobic time.”
