With certifications from ISSA in both Fitness Nutrition and Fitness Training, as well as a certified Pre- and Postnatal Coach, I have a passion for helping people be the best they can be. I offer supportive coaching, especially good for those intimidated by they typical "gym" experience.
I get it, life is busy and hard. Time is difficult to come by. I work, I have kids, and I love sleep. I get that exercise may be a low priority. My job is not to yell at you, make you cry, or make you dread your workout. The hardest step in starting a workout regimen really is that first one -- knowing you want to change your life and asking for help. I will be there to work with you, to help you, and to support you.

I have been meeting with Jennifer since April (3 months) for personal training sessions for me and a family member. We had goals of losing weight as well as getting stronger, but we don't like gyms. Jennifer meets with us at a public track and has taught us so many exercises that we can do at home. This is so motivating to be able to exercise anytime ... and to be seeing results! We are losing weight and able to lift some weights and exercise for longer. Jennifer is extremely patient and encouraging. I appreciate that she gives us exercises that are a little hard at first, but encourages us that we can do it. I hesitated for a long time to get a personal trainer because I thought I'd be uncomfortable. We are both so glad we found Jennifer and highly recommend her to anyone of any age who wants to get in shape!
I have long wanted to get healthier. I needed to lose a little weight and I wanted to be able to walk and go up stairs and lift "heavy" (for me) things. I wanted to get healthy but I never did anything about it. Meeting with Jennifer has made me more motivated because I now believe that losing weight and being stronger and healthier is possible! She is so kind and encouraging. She has different exercises based on the clients' needs and different ideas for helping us to keep going
