Below are some things my clients have to say!
Jenna has a passion and transfers it to her clients. I counted on you to push me (and you did). Your cheerful and positive. You really do your job with passion and feeling that as your client has a very positive effect. Sessions do not become a burden.

As a person who is not athletic and never exercised most of my life:
Jenna has the unique ability to be easily approachable and relatable, yet able to push me to do more strenuous workouts than I’ve ever done before. She’s a confidence builder.
I count on Jenna for a smile and an understanding yet upbeat attitude, which always elevates the mood I am in. Jenna is also very knowledgeable about whatever fitness topic I discuss with her. She stays abreast of current information.
I am impressed with Jenna because she is such an enthusiastic, giving, caring person and people are naturally drawn to her. She is a perfect role model in her personal fitness, too.
For the first time in my 60+ years, I have been at the same gym for over 2 years and regularly attend 3 classes/week- a life changer for me. This pattern was established in part because Jenna was such a pleasure to work with. I feel she truly has a gift for this type of work and can change other people’s lives as well.

Jenna has the ability to be warm and welcoming while remaining very professional in her role as fitness coach. I counted on Jenna to be always accessible for sharing her expertise in conditioning exercise and to do it in a wonderfully clear and supportive manner. She is friendly, upbeat, inclusive and knowledgeable. Her energy and positive attitude were delightful and made work-outs fun and rewarding.

Jenna is inspiring. You inspired me to be the very best at workouts. You inspired me to go beyond what I thought possible. You inspired me to get back to a place I had not been in a very very long time. I am the happiest I have ever been. I count on you for support, for your energy and for your belief. You are a committed person and in that you inspire others. I am impressed by you for your ability to “read” others. To detect their needs and deliver on that commitment. I can tell you I’ve lost 15#’s and gained 5#’s muscle. I now wear close fitting tops and have had my jeans taken in twice. My husband is my greatest admirer; my massage therapist tells me I have the “ledge” on my glutes. Life is good and I’m setting more and more goals. I thank God for you being there when I needed you.
Julie D. July 17, 2015
You are genuine. I mean that your enthusiasm, attitude, and demeanor come from a place of integrity. You generate positive energy that affects (or infects, if you like) your clients. I counted on that energy on days when I wasn’t necessarily generating enough of my own internal combustion power to see me through a workout. You supplied the extra amount needed. You work in an industry that you obviously love that most likely is undervalued in the marketplace—meaning that you’re probably underpaid financially but you must gain great internal rewards and satisfaction and life balance from the relationships you make and the lives you change.
Carl W. July 17, 2015
Jenna is a delightfully warm, friendly individual who challenges and encourages all the clients she works with. She is extremely well organized, to the point that the gym’s equipment is always in place for the next client, no matter how many individuals are using them. I counted on her to be aware of my physical limitations and adapt my workout schedule to accommodate my needs. Her gentle encouragement always made me feel that I could continue to do better each time I worked with her. Not only is Jenna an excellent teacher of physical activities, she lives a life style that incorporates what she teaches into her own life.
Barb B. July 17, 2015
Jenna has the ability to make people comfortable when they are out of their comfort zone, giving them small wins which encourages them to continue. I count on you for motivation and support. You have energy for your clients and a commitment to nutrition.
Jody B. July 17, 2015
Jenna works to be educated in both fitness and nutrition, and is knowledgeable and particular in both. You have a sincere enthusiasm and commitment to health and well being. You don’t ask for something you would not do. Your support and encouragement is unconditional to all that you train regardless of where they are in their fitness/health. Ultimately I feel like you have my best interests in your heart, you are exceptional and a perfectionist as a trainer and you are fun to be with.
Gloria S. July 17, 2015
Jenna has the ability to share her passion for fitness and health with others in a way that is contagious. She is skilled and effective at training and motivating people and does so with grace and respect for the individual. I can count on Jenna to be there for me as a friend and professional. I can count on her to be honest, kind and knowledgeable. I can count on her to be positive, and I can count on leaving our sessions/encounters feeling better about myself and my goals than when I first show up! I’m impressed how Jenna lives and breathes everything she preaches! She has an energy about her that is contagious, motivating and grounding. Jenna rocks!
Libby S. July 17, 2015
Jenna has the incredible ability to see the unique strengths of each client, Form Form Form over everything, knowing when to push and when to support, looking at the whole client/person and building all areas of confidence. You have the ability to bring out the BEST in me for every workout or class, and you are always smiling with a positive spirit. And every time I squeeze my glutes I think of you!
Jill D. July 17, 2015
Jenna brings light, fun and positivity to every encounter and interaction. You make people smile and laugh. And you are inherently happy – and that rubs off on even the grouchiest people! (Ha!) To teach me something new I can do for myself (and have fun at it, too!) every day. You see beauty and potential in every challenge! You make everyone a little bit better! This is why people want to work with and learn from you, Jenna dude!
Anne S. July 17, 2015
Jenna has the ability to make individuals feel encouraged and never judged. It doesn’t matter if someone is just starting out or has been into fitness for years, if they fall and need to restart, or if they feel like they have failed in the past. You ask thought provoking questions to encourage your clients to find the reasons behind things. They discover things that may have been setbacks in the past and you assist them to make the right changes. You encourage them to get back up and keep going. You’ve never made me feel bad about myself or nutrition, instead you assist me by giving me the tools, positive reinforcement and support I need. I count on you to be knowledgeable not only with fitness, but nutrition. You have great ideas, recipes, programs and are always improving yourself which benefits all. You are always there to answer any questions, which is huge. You strive for the best for your clients and care that they succeed. Your content is relevant to actual life, never focusing on quick changes, but lifestyle changes. As I said before, you’ve never made me feel like a failure when I’ve had Roller-coaster weight changes. You’re extremely knowledgeable and are constantly educating yourself to not only better yourself but client’s lives. You have fantastic technique and give excellent points to eliminate injuries. You have patience, drive, great work ethics, you’re honest, caring, and encouraging.
Krista M. July 17, 2015
Jenna has a unique ability to make people feel very comfortable and confident. You’re very easy to talk to and super friendly. I count on you to always give me confidence and encouragement and see things from a different and positive perspective. I am impressed about who you are by how you choose to live your life building up others.
Olivia H. July 17, 2015
There are many the gifts that Jenna brings to her clients:
Your vast knowledge for all aspects of the body, and its functions, your thirst to remain relevant and current, the ability to relay the technique in plain language while patiently demonstrating the exercise over and over, the eagerness to help your client achieve their perspective goals, your serene (in control) disposition, your ability to make everyone feel special and welcomed, all these topped by AN UNPARALLELED WORK ETHIC.
I count on you to have a great smile and a consistently rigorous and joyous workout. I trust you to work me out a bit more today than yesterday while, watching like a hawk my every move, technique, progress and safety. You have pointed out the strengths and weaknesses of my body, more than anyone else in the past, including Pilates. You always look genuinely happy to see your clients who eventually become your friends.
Barbara B. July 17, 2015
Jenna has an incredibly nurturing and enthusiastic way of getting her clients to do the best they can and strive for more. Whether you are an already-athletic 25 year old or a out-of-shape 60 year old, she makes you feel accepted and encouraged. As you were encouraging me to go beyond my expectations, I counted on you to be safe and intelligent with my work-outs. I really appreciate the knowledge you have about the body and the fact that you seem to be constantly educating yourself further. I could always count on your attention and enthusiastic cheer-leading. You seem to be an incredibly positive person with a big heart! And it seemed as if you were focused —outside of your time in the gym— on studying how to work with all kinds of bodies, keeping up with new training techniques and nutritional approaches. I really felt that you had a solid commitment to your work and took it seriously as an informed professional.
Laura T. July 17, 2015
I instantly trusted that you knew what you were doing & would help me learn how to lift/workout. You were the perfect combo of expert and coach — aka approachable/encouraging/fun. Yes, I should have mentioned fun earlier! Your commitment – you don’t just talk the talk but you walk the walk & you do it in a way that isn’t “i’m better than you” or “it’s really hard” but more of “yeah, I like to live healthy & workout & eat well…want to do it with me? Sweet. No? Ok, you got your own thing going on, cool.
Kourtney N. July 17, 2015
I think your unique ability is your level of energy. If I brought the same amount of energy to my job that you bring to yours (well, first I’d totally freak out all my male engineer coworkers), but I’d be SO productive. Without fail you were always super energetic and welcoming. Whether it was at 5:30AM or 12:00PM I could always feel your energy when I walked in the door. And it spread to me and then I was pumped to be there too.
Obviously I counted on you to teach me – teach me exercises, proper form, and educate me on WHY I was doing the things I was doing. You were always good at those things. But mainly, I counted on you to keep me motivated and accountable. Nobody else pushed me like you did, while also keeping me interested.
What impresses me about who you are is that you genuinely care so much. Having worked with several other trainers, I can say that the level of care you have for your clients is unmatched. You share in your clients’ success and beam with joy and pride when we accomplish something new and challenging. And then we feel all the good feels and keep coming back for more.
Jamie D. July 17, 2015
Jenna was wonderful at creating a feeling of community at the gym: calling out our names as we came in, introducing class members each and every class, introducing new people as they joined the gym, etc. Jenna remembered our needs: remembered that we were having trouble with a particular part of our body, etc. Jenna was always full of happy energy. Jenna was studying the impact of diet and exercise together and bringing that new knowledge to her clients.
