ABOUT JENNIFER

We officially opened our doors to Ascension Fitness on August 30, 2010.  August 30th has a special meaning to me as it is the date that Hurricane Katrina dissipated, one day after the most destructive storm in our history took its best shot at New Orleans.  It represented the worst of times for many of us in Louisiana and at the time it appeared much of what we had known would never come back.  But looking at New Orleans today, we realize that Katrina brought out what was best in most of us.  Resilience... Strength... Comradery... Faith... Hope... Love... Compassion.

New Orleans has shown the resilience of her people and has begun her ascension into a new city, a city full of possibilities.

Our name, Ascension Fitness, was inspired by New Orleans’ revival.  The name, Ascension, signifies what we all have in us...greatness; and most importantly represents the journey we have been on and continue on.  Like you, my life has been forever changed trough this experience, without this change though I’m not sure I would have had the faith and confidence to start new, creating a new challenge and living my dream.
Jennifer is the owner and operator of Ascension Fitness.  She started Ascension Fitness with the vision to take New Orleans to a new level of Health and Fitness by instilling good habits to balance food, family, and fun with healthy limits!

“We set our clients up for success in all endeavors by carefully designing exercise programs to fulfill and exceed their specific needs while respecting current limitations.  Just like our New Orleans Saints our mantra is to always Finish Strong!”

Jennifer has over fifteen years of professional experience in the health and fitness industry.  During that time, Jenn has worked in nearly all aspects of the industry including:  Personal training and teaching group fitness classes since 1995; Three years in Corporate Fitness; Two years coordinating and facilitating Kid’s fitness classes in boxing, weight training, and “playing to exercise.”

In addition to her hands-on training experience, she has also contributed to Childhood Obesity Study by Dr. Mark Loftin, UNO and Dr. Melinda Southerland, LSU Health and Science Department in association with Tulane University.  As part of the study Jenn facilitated group controlled fitness classes for adolescent girls participating in the study and participated in New Orleans areas fitness programming and several local news & wellness spots.

Some of her most recent developments include the creation of the Mommy Movement program, a physically challenging specialized program specific for post-partum Moms to meet their fitness goals, while supporting them emotionally to overcome the challenges of motherhood.

She will also be authoring a soon to be released e-book “How to Get your Body Back After Having a Baby.”
