Well hello!

I’m Jenn

My personal journey began in college when I lost weight for the first time. It’s where I found my love of fitness and became an aerobics instructor. After graduating, I left teaching behind for a desk job and gained the weight, plus some, back. The financial downturn of 2008 brought me back to my love of fitness and teaching. Today, my routine is an open book. Ask me anything.

Over the years I tried various trendy, celebrity weight loss and fitness programs. Some worked in the short term and some made me feel like poo. Without long-term success, I started to believe that being tired after lunch was normal and that my creaking knees would prevent me from playing volleyball or running because aging really did mean feeling lethargic and achy. #Sadness

Since then I’ve discovered…

  • There are no absolutes. There’s just you, your current situation, and how you will navigate it.
  • Life is not static. One-size-fits-all programs set you up for frustration and failure.
  • You must tune into what your body is telling you to find sustainable health success.
  • My engineering background has given me a unique perspective on the body.
  • Go slow, start small, and choose progress over perfection.
  • What worked before may not work now and probably will not work later.
  • Feeling better than “just getting by” is doable in any situation and season of life.

I’m here to support you, be your biggest cheerleader, and guide you to feel the way you want to feel.

Are you curious about how you can make progress toward a FitBodyPhatLife even when the Universe is piling it on?

The Secret of My Success

Is your health slipping while caring for someone whose health is, also, slipping?

When Papa came home from the hospital in January 2021 his needs had changed. For three months, I traveled 9 hours round-trip helping with meds and doctor’s appointments, being a point of contact in varying conversations and constantly hoping he wouldn’t need the ER (which happened 16 times when someone else wasn’t there).

Even as a coach, my healthy habits and ability to care for myself went out the window when I became a caregiver. I had to learn all over again how to feel successful in my health and well-being.

The stress, the astronomical exhaustion, and the sheer will to keep going are something I still look back on in bewilderment.

If you’re struggling and you don’t think a coach would understand, I will and others to do too.


My favorite change-your-day tunes.

Every day is a new day, with high hopes and big dreams. Whether you’re feeling challenged by a loved one, a significant other, a business dream, or your own self-talk – YOU are the builder of your legacy.

This playlist is a vibe. Something that starts out easy and gets your body swaying to the groove for a shift in your energy that just might change your day.

It works for me. I hope it’ll work for you too. 💕
