Tara Simich is 23 years old. She is a Perth based entrepreneur, having founded The Jungle Body when she was 19, which now sports over 300 franchises across 6 countries. For the first two years, the business made a loss. Not a cent in sight. Then, the UK discovered the boutique fitness craze and from there, Tara hasn’t looked back.
Exercise is obviously very dear to you. Where did your love of exercise begin?
I didn’t think that I would end up in fitness. Now in hindsight my whole life has been about fitness. My Mum was always into health and fitness. I remember being 10 years old and doing Denise Austin workouts DVD’s with Mum. I always loved the gym through high school and I danced (ballroom dancing). I was always around health, fitness & dance but it never occurred to me that it would be something I’d end up in.
