CREATOR, WIFE, GROUP FITNESS ADDICT & BUSINESS GURU
The brains behind the business
In 2010, Perth born Tara Simich founded The Jungle Body® with the dream of creating a range of inspiring workouts that could transform your body but also give you a total endorphin overload!
Tara first cut her teeth on the fitness scene in New York and Los Angeles, developing a new gym alongside world heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko & former Golds Gym Venice Beach Manager Matteo Baker. It was here that Tara noticed a gap in the group fitness market for a workout that had it all; simple to follow, super effective & amazing music that everyone loves!
On return to Perth she was determined to create the ultimate full body workout with everything you need in a one simple workout! By day she studied a Bachelor of Economics and by night she rocked the gym with her own invention - KONGA®. The workout became more than just a fitness class. It transformed, healed, inspired, connected and motivated thousands. The music is euphoric, the moves are powerful, the people are humble, the vibe is fun and the results are epic.
Fast-forward 5 years of blood, sweat (a lot of sweat) and tears and The Jungle Body® now has 5 programs that can be found in Gyms & Healthclubs across the globe in places as far-flung as Austria, Malaysia and Italy! Tara has countless awards including 2014 WaToday Entrepreneur of the Year and has been featured in numerous publications such as Who! Cosmopolitan , Grazia, Marie Claire, Yahoo, The Financial Review and Womens Health & Fitness.
In 2015 Tara thought it was FINALLY time to launch the first DVD & show the world this amazing Program.
So here we are...
