Jennifer has devoted her life to finding ways to help others. While attending college she discovered that she could further that devotion by majoring in Elementary Education which she now has obtained a B.S. degree in. Teaching others and leading them to a path of success seemed to be the ideal place for Jennifer to start her career. It was while Jennifer attended Radford University that she began to reminisce about her active days as a child involving swimming, cheerleading, dance, and gymnastics. Wanting to overcome her long time personal struggle with weight concerns, Jennifer, began exploring fitness and nutrition. Since then Jennifer has become a Nationally Certified Advanced Personal Trainer (NCSF) and is passionate about learning and practicing proper health, nutrition, and fitness. Having maintained her weight loss, Jennifer wants to inspire other women to achieve their goals for weight loss and other physical conditioning goals. Combining her love for teaching, helping others, fitness, and nutrition Jennifer is thrilled to be your next motivator and coach!Adam’s life was always geared around sports and fitness. Since the age of five he has been involved in a variety of sports and activities ranging from soccer (his first passion), track, cross-country, basketball, baseball, and BMX racing. At Salem High School in Virginia Beach he was fortunate to be a cross-country state qualifier and varsity soccer captain. He took his love of sports and fitness to Radford University where he graduated with a B.S. in Exercise, Sport and Health Education. Before completed his degree he obtained an Advanced Personal Trainer Certification (NCSF) and began coaching men and woman towards their health and fitness goals. Adam has since worked with over 100 Virginia Beach residents to help them lose weight, get in outstanding shape and improve the quality of their lives.
