Jenna Pearson-I currently reside in Schenectady, NY and have been working in corporate fitness in the Capital District for the past five years. I have a Master of Science in Sport and Exercise Science from Teesside University in Middlesbrough, England, and a BS in Applied Exercise Science from Springfield College. I enjoy doing just about anything active, but my two favorite pastimes are running and kayaking.  I’ve run five marathons, and am currently gearing up for my sixth.  During each marathon I become amazed by the strength my body has that my mind lacks. I truly enjoy working with people and teaching them firsthand about the benefits of physical activity. I have taught a variety of fitness classes at numerous facilities throughout the Capital District, including: Boot Camp, PILOXING, Spinning, Body Sculpting, KettleBell, Tabata, and more.  I believe exercise should be fun, and I strive to make each class I teach not just challenging, but also enjoyable.  My ultimate goal is to empower others to realize they are far stronger than they think they are.

Erin Lennon
-have been spinning for over 10 years and after saying I was going to get certified for the last five and pushing it off,  I finally got my certification in February of 2013 through Madd Dogg Athletics. I love spinning and love instructing on the Real Ryder bikes even more. I love to climb – it’s my favorite part of class especially when we throw in a hold into the mix. I also love my TRIM family! It’s an honor to teach here! I am always looking for new songs so any suggestions are great. Born and raised in Colonie, I currently live in the town with my boyfriend, Brian and our two dogs, Francesca and Maximus.
