    Janet Jones Veloso: Founder of Vixen Workout

    How would you like to turn your passion into a thriving career? Janet Jones Veloso is a Miami native who began dancing since the tender age of three and later attended Florida State University as a dance major. She has always felt music very deeply and choreography has come easy to her. Her dancing chops landed her a prominent spot as a Miami Heat dancer and garnered the attention of well-respected choreographers in the business who gave her invaluable hands on experience. This lead her to open her own talent agency where she represented dancers, choreographers, and creative directors and worked alongside music labels and artist managers in Miami. In 2008 as the dreaded recession hit and job security declined Janet found herself with pressure from family and friends to leave the entertainment business and resort to getting a corporate job as a finance coordinator.

    For the next 3 years Janet’s life changed completely as she conformed to a life that she thought would fulfill her. She left her dancing days behind and concentrated on starting a family and being a mom. As time went by she felt as though she had lost herself and fell into a deep depression hitting rock bottom. She built the courage to pick herself back up and start over by using what she knew and loved most, dance. At first she didn’t have a plan or an idea of what she would do next but she knew she had to leave this part of her life behind in order to save herself.

    This experience made her realize that there needed to be a space for women who are in need to disconnect mentally from their responsibilities, express their emotions in a healthy way, and have a sense of community while improving their self-image and bodies. The Vixen Workout was born from this premise and has taken the workout world by storm by providing a one-of-a-kind experience. The dance format uses commercial choreography; killer music remixes, and stage lighting so you can experience yourself as a performer. (Basically you get to pretend you're opening for the VMA’s).

    Since its inception, the Vixen Workout has had over 100,000 participants aka the Vixen Army, over 250 certified instructors in 7 countries, and has been featured in the New York Times, ABC’s Nightline, Cosmopolitan, Allure, Shape, Self, USA Today, People Style Watch, and Huffington Post to name a few.

    Through her workout Janet hopes to have women come alive by fueling their mind, body, and soul with confidence. Music is truly the best medicine! It’s amazing how what began with just two attendees in her very first class is now a full on successful Vixen Army of thousands globally! Her workouts aim to make everyone feel powerful, able, and most importantly seen.
