Jennifer KNOWS that most people want to have the beautiful and fit physique and NOT become a bodybuilder. That is also how Jennifer has felt her whole career. She desires to emphasize the beautiful healthy physique for all those she trains! However those who want to enter the world of competition cannot find a more experienced coach!
Jennifer’s number one priority is attaining muscular balance. If the ‘body armor’ (muscles) are all tight and balanced the chances of injury from a fall, etc., is slim to none as the muscles keep the joints, tendons and ligaments protected and where they should be. But on top of that the body will become stronger, more appealing, energized, better blood flow, more oxygenated and just plain HEALTHIER!
Jennifer TEACHES her students. Whenever she has a session with a client she will explain why a particular exercise is important and where it works. How the importance of ‘focus’ can mean a quicker response from the body.
Training is not just limited to adults. Training can be started as early as 6 years old (however weights are limited to a lesser resistance). Since Jennifer was also a high school coach she also works with lots of student-athletes including Blair Lamb (now on the professional golfing circuit) since she was a Sophomore in high school. She trains basketball and volleyball players for vertical jumping and overall fitness. Jennifer's expertise is Weight-training and Running for all sports!
Jennifer has a local connection to many doctors who send their patients to her for rehabilitation. She has also studied with a local sports rehabilitation center for techniques in wrapping AND diagnosing injuries. Jennifer promotes physical therapy as ‘step one’ toward recovery and her training as ‘step two’ to move onto better overall health in all areas including cardiovascular and resistance.
