My Mission
I believe fitness is more than just losing weight or gaining muscle... It is a way of life and a key to life's happiness. Despite spending most of my adolescence and young adulthood as an athlete, I had moments afterward where I fell off the wagon. For me, I found those moments linked to depression. Mental health is extremely important to me and I believe we start with the triangular foundation of fitness, nutrition, and rest/recovery. From there, we add other mindfulness elements like meditation and practicing gratitude. I've seen what this has done for me and I want to be the vessel to help others achieve that as well. I love setting goals including mini ones to achieve and as a goal-oriented person, I want to help others strive for greater heights as well. We have infinite potential and I've always been fascinated by how high we can reach. Getting into fitness taught me ways in which I can achieve that and inspire those I come in contact with. Let's work! #TeamFocus

Why Train With Me

I believe the training experience with me is more than fitness. What makes me unique as a trainer from my perspective and feedback from MANY of my clients is my ability to provide a healing space for overall wellness! Many clients feel empowered when they leave my sessions stating a hybrid effect of great workouts plus therapy. I've had clients joke around calling me their life coach and have seen many start their day low before me and leave on a high! My background as a trained actor and improv performer has also served as a major benefit with me bringing my dynamic personality into the fold. As a trainer I believe it's important to pull from all your life's experiences and it's helped me have the ability to adapt and connect to ANY client I train. My football/track background, tuba playing, Engineering studies, being a proud member of Omega Psi Phi, and my love for the arts/film create for an exciting training environment outside of my vast fitness knowledge. I believe fitness is a vessel to overall wellness and happiness in our life and I provide encouragement, motivation, and even entertainment to help them get through their sessions and take on the world after!

My go-to workout

I'm a sports fan so anything that simulates athletic movements! HIIT, basketball, and a nice lift!

Healthy food I love

Nothing like baked or grilled chicken with a side of lightly seasoned potatoes and broccoli! Yum!

Healthy food I hate

UNSEASONED broccoli (I'll eat it if I HAVE to) haha! You probably won't see me with avocados much...

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!"
