About Feis Fit
Welcome to Feis Fit, a community of dancers, strength and conditioning coaches, and physical therapists working together to help Irish Dancers gain a competitive edge. My name is Jeanne Weller and I am a former Irish Dancer and now a personal trainer who specializes in developing fitness plans for dancers who want to take their dancing power, performance, and technique to the next level.
About the Creator
My name is Jeanne Weller, and I fell in love with Irish Dancing at age 6. Throughout my dancing career I competed in many regional, national, and world championships both individually and on teams. After my years as a competitor, I decided to focus on the fitness piece required for excellent dancing that many dancers miss. I started by earning a bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Fitness, getting certified in Personal Training and Group Exercise, and NOW continuously absorbing everything I can about how dancers and young athletes of all kinds train for optimal performance. I am very passionate about learning how the human body works and how to combine strength and conditioning principles with Irish Dance movement patterns to help every dancer reach their full potential. While I was in college, I began experimenting with customized dancer training programs as well as running Irish Dance boot camps in Central Ohio, helping many dancers achieve their goals including:
- Recalling at the Oireachtas
- Moving up many placements at Feiseanna and major competitions
- Qualifying for Worlds
- Winning major competitions
My fitness career brought me to Milwaukee, WI, where I have been blessed with the opportunity to do what I love — helping good Irish Dancers become excellent! Feis Fit in Milwaukee started September 2016, and already we’ve helped dancers achieve their dancing goals and beyond!
We have had dancers win major titles including the World Championships, qualify for Worlds and Oireachtas for the first time, and earn their solo dress!
Awards aside, at Feis Fit I truly believe that learning to enjoy the journey and challenges of Irish Dancing in a positive supportive community is the MOST important part of dancing. We were made to connect, grow, and help each other…and THAT is what makes Feis Fit truly great.
