Meet Jair and Micquel Bernier of The Bernier Twins in Santa Monica

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jair and Micquel Bernier.

Jair and Micquel, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Born and raised in New Jersey for 18 years, then moved for Philadelphia for five years. Started working for a phenomenal company called Gloveworx which had us relocate in New York. And just after one month with the company they sent us to LA to be great

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Nothing is ever easy. Everything has to be worked for. We understood that the harder we worked the more opportunities we come our way. Opportunity always meets preparation. Therefore, We were in and out of the gym everyday getting better and working on our craft.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with The Bernier Twins – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
As twins, we modeled for various clothing companies and even got the opportunity to star in a reality tv show, Paradise Hotel on Fox. What sets us apart is that not only are we identical twins but we’re mirror twins. What that means is that if we were looking at each other our bodies are mirror images. For example, Micquel was born left-handed, and I (Jair) was born right-handed. We’re super proud of our growth and how awesome it is that we’re doing it together. As well as modeling, we work for a phenomenal company called Gloveworx, founded by Leyon Azubuike & Nick Henry. Gloveworx is a boxing and fitness gym where we train our clients to become the best that they can be. As boxing and fitness coaches, we train everyone the proper form and technique for them to become unstoppable. No one can replicate what we do here and the results we produce. A lot of imitators but no one can keep up with Gloveworx.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
We have learned that whenever we plan something, it never goes as it’s supposed to. Frankly, we don’t know what the future holds for us. But what we do know, as if we keep working hard and having faith, we will lead towards success.
