As a triple-certified fitness expert, I help women experience the mood and energy-boosting effects of exercise with a variety of online, on-demand, and strength classes, without the extreme moves.
I’m Jen, a former middle and high school Spanish teacher, who combined my love of teaching with my enthusiasm for fitness so that I could help the busy midlife woman learn to make exercise work for her body, hormones, and schedule.
As a former endurance athlete and cardio junkie, I spent years doing triathlons and marathons. While I didn’t start running until age 33, once I started, the only thing holding me back was pain. I suffered from bulging discs, anemia and extreme joint pain because I failed to incorporate strength and stretching into her training. Today, I help women of all levels gain the confidence and strength that is hidden within, from the comfort of their homes.

Helping Mid-life Women
How we age is our choice. Whether our aging process moves down the tracks at a rapid pace; aging us faster through poor diet and exercise habits, or takes the scenic highway; slower through natural methods, not reaching for every new cream or supplement.
Sustainable Active Lifestyle
As we age, the idea of working smarter not harder, and less is more, should be our focus. This will keep you injury free, prevent overtraining and provide better consistency, which supports achievement of long term results, to keep you doing the activities you enjoy.
At Home Workouts
All workouts are built around functional training and exercise sustainable for the long term, not a 30 day challenge. With functional movements, not vomit inducing burpees, the goals are for a strong, healthy, active lifestyle, filled with enjoyment and movement.
Best Results with Quick Workouts.
These workouts are designed to make you feel empowered and not defeated. So if you have ever wondered if and how you could get in a good workout without the gym and finish feeling strong, confident, and ready to enjoy your life, Fit with Shaver has your answers.
