Personal Trainer

I’m Jenny, a quiet, sensitive, and free-spirited woman determined to bring natural and holistic living to the women in my community.  I am the Owner, Personal Trainer, Nutrition Specialist, and Energy behind Metanoia, a private studio in Downtown Lee’s Summit.

Why do I do what I do?  I want to live in a world surrounded by kind, fulfilled, and confident women who make wholesome impacts on their friends, family, and community. I love seeing a woman transform herself and by doing so, unknowingly inspiring others to grow into a new way of living.

Who do I work with? In my private studio, I work with motivated and goal-driven women who are ready to implement a consistent wellness plan in their lives.

I specialize in Women’s Fitness, Prenatal and Postpartum Nutrition + Fitness, The Pelvic Core Neuromuscular System, Functional Training, Weight-Loss, Digestive Health, Women’s Hormones, and Holistic Nutrition & Lifestyle.

My style: Instead of forcing you on the scale and posting before and after pictures for the world to see, I’m going to get to know you - listen to your struggles and what excites you. I start deliberate and un-rushed, easing you into a path that works for you - not only now, but later. I observe how your body moves to make sure you aren’t in pain or on the verge of getting hurt. I connect with you and am always looking for feedback, because I understand this is your journey - not mine. I believe in the power of sweating and nourishment, but I also know when to stop and have a cupcake.

When I’m not sweating in the studio, I’m…

  • Spending time with my two favorite people: my handy, way too handsome husband, Sam (aka Papa Bear) and my animal-loving, creative, music loving (almost teen!) daughter, Taylor (aka Little Foot). I’m Mama Bear, in case you were wondering.

  • Hanging out on our little urban homestead loving my chickens, bunnies, garden, and compost bins a little too much.

  • Chasing my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training; I’ll be formal by November-end!
