My Mission
I am someone who has always loved health and fitness. One day, I got sick and tired of seeing "fitness influencers" promoting lackluster workouts and fad diets that had no empirical support. My mission is to use scientifically supported recommendations derived from peer-reviewed research to optimize my client's time and effort spent exercising. I pride myself on taking my client's unique circumstances into account when developing a training plan and never using a one size fits all approach. My goal as a trainer is to have my clients use behavioral modifications to make long-lasting lifestyle changes that make my clients feel happier, healthier, and more fulfilled. Since becoming an ACE CPT, I have worked with a very diverse group of over 100 clients and if you are someone that is eager to make progress towards your goals and learn more about the technicalities of exercise, movement, or nutrition, I encourage you to reach out to find out more about what I have to offer.

Why Train With Me

My training philosophy revolves around incorporating scientific research and a client's personal circumstances into their training program. While there is ample information online, most clients do not want to surf through scientific research articles to find out how to reach their goals. That is what I am there for, to incorporate those research findings and create a practical training program for my clients to help them efficiently reach their goals.

My go-to workout

I believe that people should choose exercises that they enjoy! For me, that is weightlifting.

Healthy food I love

Some of my favorite foods are apples, chicken, brussel sprouts, greek yogurt, and fish.

Healthy food I hate

While I tend to like most foods, I can not get behind tomatoes or cottage cheese!

Client stories

"Before finding Kickoff, I wasted so much time sitting in my car at the gym trying to google the "best" workout for the day. Now I never fret over workouts - they're sent to me with clear instruction in the Kickoff app. Working with my trainer via text has been such a benefit. Having that accountability was key - I beat my goal by 10 lbs, losing 40 lbs before my wedding day!"

"I have loved every single week of Kickoff. As a busy, working mom, I don't like leaving my home & family to go to the gym. My trainer Jen designs workout plans for me that work with what I have at home. She levels me up in strength when I'm ready & adjusts when I'm not feeling my best. Kickoff is realistic, sustainable & supportive. That's why it's been so successful for me!"
