1982 Best Consultant, Exerise

Jinx Cahill

When Star wanted to know how Joan Kennedy lost 20 pounds, the tabloid called Jinx. Thirty-nine years old, Jinx herself used to weigh 40 pounds more than her current 110, and now keeps herself (and her clients) trim with an exercise regimen that combines yoga, modern dance, ballet, and “Marine Corps training exercises.” “They flow from one to another,” she explains. “It’s not just physical fitness that my students get out of this, it’s a self-identification. I love the people who come in here. Some of them have become so advanced, so fit, that i wonder what’s left for them after me. The Israeli army?”
