My Mission
I know what it is to have ups and downs with fitness and nutrition. It isn't easy for anyone! For those that are serious about better health and are willing to invest in themselves, the rewards are many. We all struggle at times to be consistent. I love helping people overcome their obstacles and move closer to their goals. I like to be there when times are good : but especially when clients get off track and need a little direction. I was 80 pounds overweight 13 years ago. It took me about a year to lose the excess weight ;but through sensible diet and fitness I have been able to keep the weight off and I can help others that are struggling. I try to make it as fun as possible so that clients will stick with the program to reach whatever goals they are pursuing.

Why Train With Me

I have years of experience and education, and connect well with people. I have an abundance of emotional intelligence to help when times seem difficult.

My go-to workout

I will do a HIRT circuit which hits all of the major muscle groups with no rest between exercises.

Healthy food I love

I have a predominately meat based diet with some non-starchy vegetables mostly. 2 meals a day.

Healthy food I hate

I avoid most starchy carbs, white foods, and kale. I'm not fond of organ meats especially liver.

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!"
