Born and raised in California, internationally published fitness model, fitness writer, Cellucor athlete, Dcore fitness apparel athlete and celebrity trainer Jen Jewell has maintained a passion for staying active and physically fit since an early age. A former competitive gymnast, she grew up working out 5-to-6 days a week. Yet when injuries sidelined her gymnastics career, Jen promptly joined a local health club in pursuit of other fitness goals.
From instructing group fitness classes (starting back in high school) to working one-on-one with clients, she has been involved in the health and fitness industry for more than a decade. "Keeping fitness fun" is a top priority that she applies to her clients as well as her own workouts. Her clientele is diverse, ranging from celebrities, athletes, and other fitness competitors to anyone who simply wants to take their fitness to the next level.
Jen loves to take her workouts to the beach, stairs, hikes, and other outdoor areas that Southern Cali has to offer. For nutrition, Jen adheres to a balanced, more sustainable approach and recommends this approach to her clients as well. Jen is a firm believer in adhering to and promoting a balanced, sustainable approach to fitness and overall wellness.
As a fitness cover model and health & fitness writer, Jen has contributed workouts, nutrition and wellness content features that have been published in a number of international magazines. These publications include (but are not limited to) Fitness, Women’s Health & Fitness, WellBella, Muscle & Body, Inside Fitness, Status Fitness, Iron Man, Muscle & Performance and more.
Jen is also a personal trainer and fitness lifestyle coach with clients all over the globe. Through her online training and coaching business, fitnessjewelltraining.com, she works with clientele worldwide via Skype sessions and provides detailed customized workout & nutrition programs for clients, no matter their goals. She’s also been adding fitness workshop & seminar events to her list of fitness adventures, and most recently traveled to South Africa for events helping others with their fitness. More locations and events are coming soon!
But Jen hasn't always worked in the field of fitness. In fact, after she completed her Bachelor's in both Marketing and Public Relations from California State University, Sacramento, she took a brief detour from her work in fitness. She spent time in corporate America as a business consultant for a Fortune 500 company and then as a medical sales representative. In November 2011, she decided to take a leap of faith, follow her passion for fitness, and left her corporate job behind in pursuit of a full-time career in fitness.
When not working with clients or preparing for her own fitness events, Jen loves to travel (tropical adventures and destinations with a rich history and archaeological sites rank at the top of her list), venture to museums, try new cuisine, read, and spend time with her loved ones.
