I have been passionate about fitness and athletic competition my whole life….from starting dance and gymnastics at age 2, to playing volleyball, basketball (yes, all 5’ of me!), track and softball in high school, to then trying something completely different and becoming a collegiate cheerleader at Iowa State University. Even after graduating with a degree in Accounting and becoming a CPA, I found myself still immersed in health and fitness. I taught Group Fitness classes and Personal Training during lunch and after work. I spent many weekends attending trainings and certifications, in my quest to learn anything and everything “fitness”. It became so much of a focus in my life, that after years of climbing the corporate ladder, I took a leap of faith and left the security of a career I had built for 10 years to find a position, where I could spend even more time sharing my love of fitness & health with others. It was a risk, BUT it was the best decision I ever made, to pursue my passion.
Coach JennyB – Nutrition Coach
Precision Nutrition Certified | NGA Bikini Pro
Jenny becomes friends with everyone she meets. I obviously liked her right away, when I found out she was a fellow Iowa State University grad. But more than that, she is genuinely one of the kindest people you will ever meet, and has a passion for helping others find the best version of themselves. She is a mother of two, who has endless energy and accomplishes more by 10am than most people do all day. She specializes in educating clients how to a make a healthy lifestyle work for them. She takes the time to get to know each client individually, and then helps them develop a plan based on their personality, life demands, and food preferences, so they can maintain life balance and a healthy mindset for life. She was once an avid runner and light dumbbell lifter, who transformed into a bikini competitor and powerlifter, through minimal cardio and heavy weights. I am honored, that I was her coach when she earned her NGA bikini pro card, in her first competition season. She is one of the hardest workers I know. In addition to competing in bikini competitions, she has expanded her competitions to powerlifting meets. She’s a self-proclaimed macro guru, who enjoys coaching clients through easy meal planning, macro counting, and nutrient timing. Time and time again, she empowers clients to make mindful choices showing them they can live, love, and enjoy life while maintaining a healthy lifestyle. If you follow the Guns N Poses Facebook page, you will see that Jenny loves developing easy, tasty recipes for the GNP family.
