My hope is that my participants gain this same joy and sense of fulfillment from my class.

Teaches: High Fitness
I enjoy group fitness because of the atmosphere it provides. It is a fun and supportive environment that is welcoming to all ages and ability levels where you can get a great workout!
I got into fitness a little over two years ago and group fitness will always have a special place in my heart. As someone who always feared going into the gym and not knowing what to do, group fitness allowed me to follow along with the instructor while also being surrounded in an encouraging environment. I want to be able to give that experience to others and help them find their passion for fitness and have fun while doing it!
Teaches: BodyFlow, BodyPump
I first attended Jaclyn's BodyPump class and fell in love with the sense of community I found within the group. I really wanted to be a part of it and help participants feel as comfortable as possible. I have found lifelong friends from teaching and participating in group fitness at the rec, and I want others to find that too.
Teaches: Full Body Strength
I enjoy group fitness because it helps to have a community to help keep me
accountable and to engage with throughout my fitness journey.
I enjoy cycle and group fitness because I love connecting to people that have the same passions as I do and feeding off everyone's energy in the class. Having fun, listening to good music and working out brings out the best in me, and watching it bring out the people around me is an indescribable feeling.
It gives me an opportunity to unwind, share my journey and experiences of how fitness has helped me in life.
Teaches: BodyPump, F45, Zumba, Hip Hop, Barre
I wanted to become a group fitness instructor so I could share my love for cycle and group fitness as a whole. I also wanted to get involved in group fitness to meet other students who also enjoy working out in an encouraging environment.
Ever since I was young, I have had a passion for exercise. Whether it was in sport or in the weight room, I have always been moving. I love the opportunity to spread my passion for exercise to those that are either just starting exercise or
looking to continue/explore exercise and fitness in a new way. I intend for my class to be something to look forward to in a day. I hope that my class is fun, motivating, and helpful to all those that decide to take it. My goal for my participants has nothing to do with a mirror, a scale, or a clothing size, rather, my goal is that my participants leave with a sense of joy and excitement for exercise.
