Jenny, also known as, "Jenny From The Block" or "JFTB" is a Certified CrossFit Trainer (CF-L3) and yoga instructor who was born and raised in Wisconsin. Alongside embracing the Cheesehead culture, she also grew up with a strong British influence from her English mother & sister and Scottish father. This influence has led to her strong love for travel and experiencing different cultures.
Fitness, sports, performance, and competition have constantly been a presence in Jenny’s life thanks to her parents encouraging her to try ALL things under the sun, such as ballet, tap, jazz, show choir, gymnastics, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and even log rolling (you're welcome). When not at DeNovo, Jenny enjoys spending time with her family, friends and dogs and enjoys the casual bike ride to a local brewery for a nice cold craft brew. She is a lover of animals and fun in the sun!
Her CrossFit journey started in August 2012 as an athlete...she soon realized that she wanted to pursue her certification and coach! The sport, culture and community of CrossFit has been a strong driving force for her ever since. Not only for her own personal fitness, but mainly for her passion for helping others be the best version of themselves they can be. She is a firm believer that CrossFit can be for anyone; she knows that it can be scary at first, yet has experienced, first hand, the magic that can happen when athletes believe in themselves and recognize that we are defined by the choices we make...we can sit, wish and hope, or we can act...we can sweat, suffer, celebrate and grow

Jorine is a CrossFit Level 2 Trainer (CF-L2) and has been coaching since September, 2012. Jorine was born and raised in Idaho Falls, Idaho and found her Colorado home when she and her husband moved to Fort Collins in 2011.
Believe it or not, Jorine was not always a fitness die-hard. In fact, she used to dislike taking the time to exercise believing there was better use of her time. In her early 20’s, she was experiencing some health issues including extreme fatigue and migraines. After many tests, she was diagnosed with hypoglycemia. The doctor’s prescription was to balance her diet by eating proper amounts of carbs, protein and fats and to exercise daily. It was shortly after she started feeling remarkably better just by eating better and exercising that she found her love and passion for fitness and a healthy lifestyle. She and her husband started doing CrossFit and it changed their lives physically, mentally and emotionally. Jorine knew then that she wanted to help others to realize their potential and to help them be their very best self. She completed her CrossFit Level 1 in June of 2012 and has been coaching ever since!
One of the most rewarding parts of her “job” is to work with athletes of all ages and abilities to help them to challenge themselves physically and also mentally. The workouts are tough, but anyone can do them regardless of any limitations as each workout is scalable to each individual’s needs and abilities. The other best part of CrossFit is the amazing community. They work together, suffer together and celebrate together. Here at DeNovo CrossFit, Jorine is thrilled for the opportunity to introduce CrossFit to you!
