Jennifer’s Success Stories

Jennifer is a ray of sunshine and positive energy. She has challenged me to heights I thought impossible to reach. She has taught me many new things. We worked on corrective exercises, which increased my functional movement score from a 16 to a 19. I recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for a trainer!

I have an amazing trainer. I have diabetes and she helped me lower my A1c (blood sugar levels) from a 7.8 to a 6.0. She understands what I need to do and how much to challenge me. At every session, I do something different and exciting. I’m very lucky to have a trainer like Jennifer.

Jennifer is incredibly motivating and organized and focused on me as her client. She prepares sessions that maximize our time together and challenge me to my maximum capacity. I have worked with many trainers before and I have never had one as effective as Jennifer. She is knowledgeable about the exercises and challenges she gives me and also gives me great advice on eating properly. She has a bright and happy personality and she is always a pleasure to spend time with during my workouts. I have worked out with her for many months now and every month I add more sessions to each week because I am progressing in my strength and flexibility and balance and my body is gaining definition. Jennifer motivates me to exercise, think positively, and enjoy being at the gym! I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for a trainer because I think she’s the best!
