Jennifer Lovell - I was drawn to movement in early childhood with dance, and then later I developed an interest in athletics. After choosing to pursue dance full time in college, I moved to NYC for the performing opportunities, culture and adventure. While supporting myself financially through waiting tables paid the bills, it was physically exhausting when combined with dance training and performing. I branched out and went to school for a summer at NYU to obtain my Personal Training Certification. New York being what it was, I had no problem finding clients and gyms that were in need of my services. This experience opened the door to many other modalities of study and training for human movement, and I went on to earn Certifications in CrossFit, Restorative and Traditional Yoga, Pilates and Reiki Energy Healing. This lifelong path of learning has afforded me the ability to work closely with individuals and groups, incorporating a holistic view of health and fitness. In training and teaching, I try to meet someone where they are at on a given day, and work from there to find the best way to approach challenges and obstacles. This is truly my life’s passion and absolutely my favorite part of being a Coach, Instructor and Trainer.
