Jeanette Jenkins is helping people of all ages improve the quality of their lives. As the personal trainer to many of Hollywood’s elite including Kelly Rowland, Pink, Shonda Rhimes and Alicia Keys, the Canada-bred fitness guru also dedicates her time and expertise to empower teen girls.
Jenkins joined forces with Team Graham and YSportz Camps on Saturday, July 11, 2015 for the launch of the SELECT 100 Camp. SELECT 100 provided a unique camp experience for 100 boys and 100 girls in the City of Detroit. The experience included the camp's founders Philadelphia Eagles linebacker / Michigan Wolverines alum (2009) Brandon Graham and his wife Carlyne, as well as other NFL players and YSportz Camps staff that coached, educated, and inspired youth through physical activity and motivational discussions. For the boys, physical activities were geared around football fundamentals and drills. For the girls, Jenkins led an obstacle course that was designed to resemble obstacles that they face in their everyday lives. In addition, the girls participated in a PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT yoga session.
"I wanted to make girls a part of it because obviously you see a lot of dudes at these camps, but there’s not much that the girls can do," says Brandon Graham (The Michigan Daily). The former first team All-American, Big Ten MVP and first round draft pick continues: "So what I wanted to do is bring in half and half for girls and boys. I’ve never seen a camp like this with girls involved, and I wanted to do something different than what everyone else has.”
Guests scored camp apparel (T-Shirts, Shorts, Shoes), Pretty Girls Sweat tees, Nike yoga mats, gift bags, beverages and lunch! To learn more about the camp and to discover ways you can get involved, visit teamgraham55.com.
