    Why Train With Me

    My thesis was published in the Journal of Athletic Training in 2019: Risk Factors for Initial and Subsequent Core or Lower Extremity Sprain or Strain Among Collegiate Football Players that was able to identify Internal “risk factors” that when a certain criterion was met, predisposed an athlete to injury 10-fold compared to those who didn’t. Life is not about the number of steps, but how and why you take them. It isn’t something that is controlled and altered but a gift we are given. Injuries are inevitable and effects people on more than just a physical level. It’s complex, involving external factors, mind, and spirit. To make a difference, therapists must be able to encompass the patient entirely. Life is about more than achieving goals; it’s about living and learning. I was a former college athlete and still strive to be active (currently training for another marathon and still an avid snowboarder, soccer player, lifter, and rock climber) so I know how hard the process can be injured or healthy. I have worked with many types of people of all ability levels and realize the patience, creativity, and support that it can entail. I care about my clients with my whole heart in hopes that they can get one step closer to their goals.

    "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!"
