JENNY INGARRA, INSTRUCTOR
Like many college students I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I received my B.S. in Biology from Sacred Heart University in 2004. From there I ventured into the animal science field where I did field research of the Desert Tortoise, working for U.S. Fish and Wildlife, living right outside of Las Vegas making $60 a week, yes I said week! Needless to say, I went broke and moved back east to Kingston, New York with my parents. There was a course at the Community College to become a Certified Personal Trainer. I have been an athlete since I was a little kid so I have always enjoyed exercise. Some may call me a freak for that! Anyway, I made the choice to pursue a career in a field that I already enjoy. I am truly blessed to do something I love.
I have always been an active person, but never had a consistent workout routine. I was always "just happy & content" with my body and weight. Between 2001-2005 I had 3 children, all large at birth and all delivered via c-sections. With each subsequent child, I kept a few pounds on. By 2006, I was starting to push the limits with a size 10-12 pants and knew that if I did not do something & remain consistent with it, I was going to go down a road that I did not want to be on. In December 2006, my neighbor asked me if I was interested in joining Weight Watchers with her. My response was "sure" but I knew I was not committed. My diet was my main focus at this point ~ I started counting my points, watching my portions and choosing better food. I slowly started adding in walking around my neighborhood and then strength training exercises. By August 2007, I have lost 30 pounds, hit my lifetime goal with Weight Watchers and was fitting into a size 4 pants. In September 2007, I started researching more strength training & eating more clean food (all natural, unprocessed). Since then I have continued to work on building my muscle tone and maintaining my weight.
I know that there are hundreds of people who have a very similar situation as I did as well as hundreds of frustrated people looking to lose weight and get in shape. This is why I followed my dream of becoming a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer and started Evolution Fitness. I will show you how to GET FIT and STAY FIT without having to belong to a gym or need expensive exercise equipment.
