Jen is a master’s athlete that returned to fitness shortly before her 40th birthday. As a kid, she was involved in sports and, in her 20s, she became an aerobics instructor and an avid runner. Still, like many adults, Jen let fitness go to the wayside due to work and family responsibilities. She put on over 40 pounds and felt terrible with widespread joint pain and terrible fatigue. After consulting with doctors and deciding she needed to set a better example for her children, Jen started running again, joined a bootcamp and hired a nutritionist to get her on a better path to health and it worked. She lost weight and started to feel and perform much better in all aspects of her life. She challenged herself more with 5k runs, obstacle races, mud runs and sprint triathlons, but it was her first CrossFit class in 2013 that stole her heart. Her only regret is not starting CrossFit sooner.
Through CrossFit, Jen found a passion for strength training she did not expect. It transformed her health, physique and, most importantly, her mindset. Jen became a coach to give back to the community and help others on their unique fitness journeys. Jen’s greatest joy coaching is helping people achieve something they never thought possible, whether that is lifting a certain weight, getting their first pull up or watching their health markers improve at their next doctor’s visit and more.
Jen is excited to be a part of the CrossFit Barbending community and is looking forward to helping people transform their health and learn how capable they truly are as they reach their full potential.
