I have always been really active from a young age, growing up with a body of water literally in my back yard, it was important to learn how to swim and I loved it. I would have to be persuaded to come out of the water by mom before I shriveled up or as she would say…”come on out now before you turn into a fish!” In the winter we would ice skate and my uncles and aunts would always show me new things to try. My mom placed me in gymnastics and dance and I competed through High School and a bit in college. After college I found my passion for cross country running and group fitness. I got my personal training certification, group fitness certification, and spin certification. I loved fitness so much I eventually made the career change to working at a corporate fitness center full-time in Boston as a manager and trainer. I’ve taught everything from step aerobics to yoga. I also fell in love hard with kettlebells and worked to gain my AKC all while being an avid runner and assistant cross-country coach at Emerson College. I’ve run the Boston and Chicago marathons, countless ½ marathons and 10K’s. I’ve participated in 3 fitness competitions as a body builder and learned a whole lot about myself and what I can do when I put my mind to it.
In 2013 I wanted to support people not only in their fitness but in their overall wellbeing and became a full-time health and wellness coach. I am a Certified Intrinsic Coach, and in 2019 I earned my board certification from the National Board of Certified Health and Wellness Coaches!
When I joined Boutique Fitness as a client, I absolutely fell in love with the workouts. Having a fitness background, I could tell these ladies knew what they were doing and I was in an amazing place. I also realized that I missed that aspect of coaching. In 2019 when I joined the team of amazing coaches, I was beyond thrilled. I was grateful to be among some of the most caring, intelligent and compassionate women I have met. I was also thrilled to be able to coach some pretty amazing clients and support them in meeting their goals.
I’ve learned that rest, recovery, and proper nutrition are the foundation to having a really great workout and put those 4 together and you feel strong and powerful in the other areas of your life.
Jenn’s favorite tip: Make sleep a priority! When you feel rested you are able to get the best out of you and your workouts!
