I’m a good listener. Embarking on a health and fitness journey can bring up many emotions. I’m here for you. A strong support system is vital to your success on this journey. I am part of your support system. I also have groups set up that you can join to increase your circle of support.
I am a stickler for form. There is absolutely no reason to push yourself incorrectly and cause injury. Movements we do in the gym build on themselves. This is not a competition. This is not a race. Your workouts are about YOU. I will never push you to do something harmful.
I think working out should be fun. I want to make sure my clients enjoy their workouts, especially when doing something they may not be particularly fond of. I like to laugh with my clients, and am full of terrible puns and relevant analogies. We smile and laugh while we sweat and work hard.
I found fitness in my mid-20s. As a bartender, while setting up, I lifted a heavy bucket of ice, and strained my back. Realizing I was far too young to give myself such an injury, I decided to get STRONG. After my injury healed, I got a gym membership and hired a trainer.
I realized that I enjoyed working out! I started lifting weights and taking spin classes. I saw my body change. I FELT stronger. Then, at 27, I found roller derby. This gave me a new plethora of reasons to be fit, strong, and healthy. I chose the skate name Big Nasty partly to be intimidating, partly because when I strap on my skates, I feel larger than life.
I eventually decided to be back to school, and become a personal fitness trainer. I graduated from ACC in 2014 with an Associate’s Degree in Exercise Science, and am certified through the American College of Sports Medicine. I studied many of the different certifications at ACC, and found ACSM to the gold standard in the health and fitness industry.
"Jen is fun and amazing to work with and is able to personally tailor my work outs to accommodate my joint issues. She goes above and beyond."
"Not only is Jen a great trainer, but she is truly a great person! I contacted Jen over FB and was so happy I did. She makes work outs fun and is always switching things up, so I don't get bored. I never feel too intimidated by anything when working out with Jen. Don't hesitate to contact her!"
"Jen is a wonderful trainer. She is flexible with scheduling, organized and innovative in terms of workouts. She expertly blends accountability and emotional reward within the fitness goals. I highly recommend using her for weight loss, strength training and for women with pregnancy and post partum services. She won't disappoint!"
"Wireman is amazing, and my workout with her is my favorite part of the week. Her awareness, creativity, and encouragement are at crazy-high, awesome levels. She is aware of each muscle in each person she works with, and their ranges and handicaps. Her immense variety of exercises are fun, sometimes goofy, always challenging. Her consistent encouragement keeps me engaged and excited without coming off as too "peppy". Wireman is just the best ever, and it's insane how much stronger I've gotten through working with her. Especially my effed-up leg."
"Jen is working with me and my fiancé to get us into wedding shape. She plans smart work outs that push us but keeps us away from injury which is truly appreciated. She is positive, fun and I always look forward to our time together each week!"
