About Jenna

Are you looking for someone to keep you accountable and deliver personalized exercise programs to your front door? I'm here for you! 


Hey, I'm Jenna, your functional strength coach on a mission to inspire & educate women to step into the strongest versions of themselves!


I've long since loved the health and wellness industry - I started out playing sports throughout my childhood and into my early adulthood, which sparked my interest in how the body moves, changes, adapts, and thrives in our everyday environment. At the end of 2018, I found my true passion to be in the fitness industry, so I started teaching group exercise classes at my local YMCA. In the early part of 2019 I realized I could build on my coaching technique and so I began studying for my Personal Training Certification. Since June of 2019, I've been an active personal trainer, as well as, a group ex instructor at various gyms around Charlotte... reaching from the University area to Matthews. As a trainer, I've worked with a number of clients ranging from the ages of 25-60 years old. My programming is pretty straightforward - I work my clients through a number of varied phases (some examples are stabilization, strength endurance, hypertrophy, power, etc.) to ensure the program is tailored to their needs and goals. I always make sure to touch on balance, core, and resistance training to ensure a well-rounded routine, as well! As your personal trainer, I would take the time to listen to your goals/needs and tailor a program specific to YOU! 

My favorite exercise

Lower body - any single-leg movement with heavy weight... never fails to fire up the legs and build muscle.
Upper body - LOVE an overhead press... so challenging but in the best way!
Core - the bodysaw... if you've never done these before, oh baby, they do some damage.

My favorite quote

"Discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most" - Abraham Lincoln

My training philosophy

I believe training should make your daily life better and stronger through simple & functional practices. Training should be fun and effective while leaving you feeling better than when you started. In my programs you will find variations of the basics that are scalable over several months and years. I believe consistency and incremental increases are the keys to success.

My training experience

I've been a trainer for 3+ years now and have worked with varying levels of clients from beginner to advanced. I've continued to educate myself via various accredited programs - more particularly becoming a Certified Functional Strength Coach, which a lot of my programming knowledge is built from.

I have been working with Jenna for over 4 months now and would definitely recommend her as a personal trainer and coach. She is super flexible in scheduling and understands when a session needs to be moved. Jenna meets with me once a week and creates a monthly workout plan to guide me on the days we don't meet. She is always open to tailoring my workouts to meet my abilities, goals, and health needs and wants my input each week to make sure I also enjoy what I do. She is able to find the perfect balance of pushing me and encouraging me. Jenna is also always available to answer questions when I am working out without her, and she sends me videos of how an exercise should look. Jenna is extremely knowledgable in nutrition/eating habits, workout plans/exercises, and how the body works/moves. She can explain the rationale behind any workout. I have done session with Jenna in-person and virtually and both are great.

Jenna is always finding new ways to challenge me to be my best. I asked for someone to hold me accountable and push me when I think I've run out of fuel and she does just that! Her workouts are always dynamic, so I never get bored either! I have a pretty challenging schedule at times and she has always worked to accommodate my needs. I am SO glad we matched! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

I spent a while researching trainers and so glad I picked Jenna because she is the best, and exactly what I was looking for! She tailors my workouts according to my fitness goals and always explains the benefits of each exercise. She’s patient and makes sure my form is always correct when working out, which is so important. Jenna is extremely knowledgeable about fitness and she is always able to answer my questions about each exercise that she implements into my workouts, and also gives great nutrition advice. She is very motivating and makes me feel comfortable in a gym setting, which has always been an obstacle for me. She also comes to where I live to train me; she’s flexible when it comes to location and time. On top of all that, Jenna is down to earth and just enjoyable to be around!

I’ve been working with Jenna for a couple months now, we meet 3x a week and she’s absolutely fantastic! I started working with her to get my body moving regularly, increase strength, and most importantly to improve my mental health. Jenna hits all the targets when it comes to keeping me motivated, holding me accountable, and finding the right workouts and exercises tailored to fit my individual needs. I’ve felt such an improvement in my overall health and actually look forward to working out with her!! You can’t go wrong with Jenna, she’s amazing!

Dani J.

Amazing! I had such a blast with Jenna! She's fun, encouraging and didn't mind that my dog wanted to be a part of it all. I felt great during and after the session, I'm so excited to work with her again!
