Jenna Barron - Owner BPE,
Active living and physical fitness have always been a passion of mine which is why I am thrilled that I have had the opportunity to open my own fitness studio. My passion for physical activity started at an early age, as living a healthy, active life was a priority to both of my parents, my mom being an avid runner and my dad who played professional hockey in Sweden. As a child, I played many different sports but as I began to grow up I started to focus specifically on Track and Ringette. Track taught me independence and self motivation, as it is an individual sport that requires A LOT of hard work and dedication and Ringette taught me how to be a team player working towards a common goal. I was fortunate enough to compete at the National level for both sports and then on the U of A Ringette team as well as the U of A track team while working towards my degree. In 2010, I completed the Victoria Marathon and am looking forward to running a half marathon this coming summer. My love for sports and physical activity led me to enroll in the Bachelor of Physical Education program at the University of Alberta where I graduated from in 2011 with a concentration in Active Living, Health and Well-being. I also earned my CSEP-CPT through my degree in 2008. Playing competitive sport taught me a lot about sports nutrition and long term training programs that I am able to apply to my clients today. I have been a personal trainer for the past 3 years and I have learned so much working with many different people ranging from high level athletes to individuals with knee and back injuries. Every new client has provided me with a new skill set and a fresh outlook on training and program development. My new passion is working with my clients to develop goals and help strive to achieve those goals as well as a healthy, new, balanced lifestyle. I am looking so forward to this coming year and hopefully I will have the opportunity to work with new clients and face new challenges in order to help others meet their fitness goals!
