Jenna has always lead an active lifestyle; competing at the Provincial level Track and Field as well as playing hockey for the University of Calgary and Officiating hockey at the intercollegiate level. Today, she enjoys golfing and running half marathons. With a PB of sub 1:30 and most recently 1hr31minutes, just 10 months after delivering her beautiful baby girl, Jenna believes balance in life is the key to leading a happy and healthy lifestyle.
She first fell in love with Pilates while overcoming a work related overuse injury as a Registered Massage Therapist in Alberta in 2004. Having also been in the fitness industry, several years at that point, she found the Stott Pilates method of combining a mind/body connection with a very specific approach to core conditioning to be a perfect fit. Pilates had made such a positive impact on Jenna, in both her recovery and in furthering her run training that she wanted to become a certified STOTT PILATES® instructor.
Jenna has extensive knowledge of the STOTT PILATES® Mat and Equipment repertoire as well as being one of the few instructors nationally to hold her STOTT PILATES® Golf Conditioning Specialist designation.
Jenna is also a YMCA Trainer of Fitness Leaders, a Bellyfit Master Trainer, a Bender Ball Master Trainer, and a YWCA Encore After Breast Cancer Trainer.
As the owner of Studio West Pilates, she hopes to share her wide range of knowledge to help others maintain a strong mind & body and assist them in achieving their fitness goals while remaining injury free.
