Meet Deja

When it comes to fitness, Deja Riley is not the obvious choice. She’s Black, has natural hair, and tattoos yet she’s one of the most sought-after lululemon ambassadors and trainers for the MIRROR home gym.

After starting her career as a dancer, performing for the likes of Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, J.Lo, and Beyoncé, Deja transitioned from her decade-long dance career to fitness, creating Deja Riley Athletics to feed her physical impulses and inspire people to perspire. Deja serves on lululemon’s advisory board as an inclusion, diversity, equity and action (IDEA) representative. You can also find Deja on lululemon billboards and stores across the world, as one of the faces of “FEEL,” their largest, fully-integrated global brand advertising campaign to date.

Along with being a global ambassador, Deja developed her own workout method, DANCE OUT OF THE BOX, which combines both shadowboxing and dance in a music-driven cardio workout that will make you smile while you sweat.

As a former host on PopSugar, and host of her own YouTube Channel, she is on a mission to bring vibrant energy to people all over the world. Companies like Puma, Reebok, Samsung, Under Armour, Fitbit, PopSugar and more have sought out her unique talents as she’s well on her way to becoming a household name and making a lasting impact on the world in more ways than one.
