Jeni, a So Cal native, grew up dancing and being active from an early age. After dancing competitively and professionally for 18+ years, she majored in fashion and worked in the apparel industry for four years until she realized that she was missing the amazing feeling that dancing and being active gave her throughout the day. So, she decided to take a chance and leave the apparel industry to go back to her roots.
Now, slightly obsessed with fitness, Jeni loves training - strength training, boxing, cycling, yoga - it all makes sense to her because of her deep roots with Pilates. Pilates is the base of all her routines. No matter what workout she's doing, it provides the foundation for her body to take it on. Her upbeat and supportive attitude makes you want to come to her class every day for the challenging workout, but also to just spend time with her. Basically, she's the ideal combination of attentive trainer and best friend.
Jeni is nationally certified through the Pilates training program at Equinox. She is also certified in Barworks through Yogaworks and cycling through Schwinn.
