Jera Foster-Fell was born and raised in New York City, went to school in LA, worked as a graphic artist, then, to help her get over a break-up, started a fitness regimen that led her all the way to the Soul Cycle instructor podium. In less than 4 years, she has amassed nearly 200,000 Instagram followers by sharing her life, which has most recently been in flux. Her followers love her because she is raw, open and as willing to be unedited as she is capable of being sexy. She is changing. She is refreshing. She is on a mission to connect.
