Jenny is currently part of the world record holding team for the mixed relay on the Canadian Fire Fit course. Initially, her pursuit to develop into a top-level competitor led her to become a ProActive member. Soon after Jenny knew that she had to be a part of this movement even more by becoming a fully certified coach! Jenny is personable, professional and passionate when it comes to leading her group fitness classes."
GROUP FITNESS COACH

Fitness is a way of life and I want to help coach others so they experience that same joy."
"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard then everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great."

REAL PEOPLE REAL RESULTS
"Health is not about the weight you lose, but about the life you gain!"
“Four months ago I wouldn’t have even imagined being where I am now. Proactive Training and Nutrition has taken my life and flipped it positive side up. Not only do I feel great about my body, I have ten times the energy when I wake up every morning."
"Signing up with ProActive Training and Nutrition was one of the smartest things I have ever done from a health standpoint. I was often fixated on the number on the scale, but working with ProActive helped shape a new perspective that focused more on strength and total body health. This new focus made me feel strong and confident. If you want to get into great shape, Emerson is your guy!”
"The trainers' motivation, energy, positive attitude and challenging workouts each week cannot be matched! The group environment is so inspiring to keep going and coming back for more! Workouts can be tailored to your fitness level as you progress and the outdoor classes are SO much fun! Cannot say enough good things."
"I was nervous coming to bootcamp for the first time. It was really tough but at the same time, Emerson encourages you to do it at your own pace. I was so out of shape. I had given up on getting back into shape. I was unhappy with how I looked and how my clothes fit. I did not expect to come as far as I have. If I had not come to Emerson's boot camp, I would still be sitting on the couch eating chocolate after a stressful day at work. “If you’re thinking of just trying a session, do it, and never look back.”
"If you are contemplating training with ProActive, I can assure you it will be your first step to success to achieving a healthier and fit body. I had so much fun at boot camp last summer, and can’t wait for boot camp to start up again this year!"
“Emerson and Proactive Training and Nutrition are absolutely amazing! Emerson makes working out fun! He is so encouraging and energetic, he always makes sure you understand the exercise and that you are performing it in the correct form. Everyone at the classes are so encouraging and friendly, it is a great team of people all trying to achieve the same goal of a healthier life style
