Janeen Tramble, Trigg County Extension Agent for 4-H Youth Development, first applied to be in a television commercial for Curves last fall alongside a few other people. Although she didn’t get that gig, they approached her and asked her to be on a print advertisement they were working on.
“I’ve been a member of Curves since they opened in Cadiz seven or eight years ago, so I was like, ‘I know how to do that, this should not be hard,’” Tramble said. “I had already been to a Zumba class here in Cadiz one time … and I did the best I could.”
In the commercial, they wanted the models to dance to Zumba, a type of dance exercise taught that Curves started teaching recently, said Tramble, who also stated that the poster also advertises the Zumba class.
Faye Hainsworth, owner of the Cadiz Curves, said the other models brought in for the television commercial were Zumba instructors, and that some of them were eventually selected for that.
Tramble said that the shoot for the print advertisement, which consisted of quick shots of the models, was at the end of September. The advertisement officially went out earlier this month, she said.
“I was pretty excited that they liked it well enough that they’re putting it on a poster that’s going to every Curves,” Tramble said, adding that Hainsworth went to the Curves convention in Atlanta in November and saw the poster displayed prominently.
“I was at the convention, and a big screen popped up and Janeen was on it,” said Hainsworth. “We’re just so excited for her.”
Tramble is currently with Avenue Agency, a modeling agency in Nashville, Tenn., and has been for the past three years, and she said she has been taking some acting classes as well so that she can get more work.
Tramble, who will be 49 years old soon, said she has been doing modeling work in the area for about three years. It started she attended a Women’s Show a few years ago. When she signed for a door prize, the person taking door prize applications told her she should do some modeling.
