Jennifer before and after

A lifelong athlete and gym-goer, Jennifer lived in various parts of the country before settling in the Bay Area in 2010. She worked for over 25 years in high-end restaurants as a manager, server, event planner and wedding coordinator. Over time, she fell into the sociable lifestyle that encompasses the hospitality business. These bad habits made her gain weight and left her living an unhealthy lifestyle.

Jennifer realized her true calling as a fitness instructor and eventual gym owner as a result of being encouraged by others in her fitness classes to become certified to teach. Her enthusiasm and high energy provided a positive environment for others to be around, and she found herself reveling in the ability to help people change their lives for the better.

She started her professional fitness journey in 2011 and has steadily pursued her passion for making a real difference in people’s lives. After years of self-reflection and introspection, she decided to make lots of real life changes of her own – including quitting drinking on June 27, 2011. That day forever changed her and her course in life.

Jennifer is a CrossFitter and participates in local competitions for fun. She has competed in numerous adventure races, triathlons and half-marathons. She is always on the go and is known to try any kind of athletic venture – at least once. She lives with her pitbull Lela in Oakland.
