“A great training experience
! Jenn is the best. She challenges me while being supportive and caring. When I had a injury (not from the training), she made sure our regimen worked around and didn’t exacerbate my condition. She’s knowledgeable, sensitive, and fun to be around. Saldare is a great place to train. It’s small yet has everything you need. Absolutely give Saldare and Jenn a try!”

Jenn's start in fitness

As a kid, Jenn was a more cerebral student and would constantly try to avoid gym class. However, at the age of 15, her mom took her to a group exercise class and a spark was set. Jenn began taking classes daily, and two years later at the age of 17, she began teaching group exercise part time while at college.

Jenn graduated from NYU with her BA in Psychology and continued to teach group exercise during her postgraduate work at Northeastern University where she graduated with a Master’s in Counseling Psychology. After three years of a professional career in the psychology, Jenn realized that her true passion was integrated health and wellness. She decided to switch gears into a career where she would be able to truly support clients in a more holistic manner, as they made meaningful and lasting changes in their lives.

Jenn earned her certification as a Personal Trainer, and accepted a role as the Assistant Fitness Director and Personal Trainer at Healthworks in Boston, MA. In 2009, Jenn purchased Saldare Body Therapy located in Boston’s South End, where she and her highly trained staff continue to help others improve their quality of life every day!

Jenn enjoys working with all fitness levels, and her specialties include nutrition and lifestyle coaching, training clients new to exercise as well as clients with (or recovering from) injuries. Jenn works with expectant and new mothers, clients seeking private Pilates and yoga instruction, and high-intensity circuit training.

Have a question about Personal Training?

 

"Nothing beats one-on-one yoga and coaching! You’ll never get the full benefit from big-group yoga without occasional 1-on-1 private training. While it can still be a serious (and beneficial) work-out, Jenn adds her own “spin” to keep the sessions fun/interesting."
