Meet Jenn Menzer of Jenn Menzer Fitness Arizona

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jenn Menzer.

Jenn is a multi-modal health and fitness expert who has been improving lives since 2001. Pulling from her diverse fitness expertise in Strength Training, Pilates and Yoga, a Master’s in Counseling Psychology, and Certified Holistic Nutrition Counseling practice, Jenn creates truly customized and effective fitness and nutritional programming that will change your life. Part coach, educator, and 100% motivator; Jenn is your greatest health-enabler. You’ll also get a healthy dose of humor and delightfully direct banter to keep you motivated and entertained all while she sneakily propels you through plateaus.

After years as a Mental Health Clinician, Jenn realized her true passion was health and fitness. She decided to switch gears where she could support and motivate clients with healthy eating and lifestyle choices that create lasting change.

Jenn got her start as the Assistant Fitness Director at Healthworks Fitness Centers for Women in Boston, MA. It was there that she continued her study and earned certifications as a Personal Trainer, Pilates Instructor, Yoga Teacher, and Nutrition Coach. After many wonderful years at Healthworks, Jenn decided to pursue her dream of owning her own studio and purchased Saldare Spa, a boutique fitness and wellness studio in Boston’s historic South End where she and her highly trained staff supported clients on proper fitness, nutrition and holistic wellness.

Seven amazing years later Jenn sold Saldare, moved to Phoenix, and founded Jenn Menzer Fitness Arizona. She continues to support clients looking to live healthy, happy and fulfilled lives.  

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No, it definitely hasn’t been easy. Three years ago I was involved in a car accident. While riding my bike I was hit head on by a truck and my life was flipped upside down, literally.  I have been working since then to regain my strength, rehab my body and rebuild my business to help others who struggle with injuries and limitations to live their best lives. Last year proved to be another challenge as my husband and I decided to move to Phoenix. It isn’t easy to pick your life up and move across the country to start your business from scratch but with hard work, faith and the help of my new Phoenix fitness family I am again rebuilding my business and blessed with the pleasure of working with my clients here in the valley.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Jenn Menzer Fitness Arizona – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
What I am most proud of and what sets me apart from others is my experience and diverse fitness and wellness background. I have over 17 years in the industry, 16 certifications and a MS in Counseling that supports my coaching practice every day. Clients benefit a customized mix of fitness modalities, unconditional support, accountability and tough love (when needed) to achieve their vision of optimal health.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I just got certified in Barre, so I’ll be adding that to my class schedule this Fall, and I plan to host a Yoga/Barre/Wellness retreat sometime in 2019. Stay tuned for that via my website!
