My name is Jaelynn Ringer. I’m a 29 year old wife and mother that was born and raised in Michigan. I’ve been married a little over a year, to my husband Javon, and we now have a beautiful daughter, Lena, who is 6mos. I graduated from Michigan State University with my Bachelors and Masters in Kinesiology. Also during that time I was a sprinter/hurdler for the MSU Track and Field team, where I earned a few Big Ten medals and All-American titles. Fun fact: I also have a degree in music as a singer- songwriter, but anyway…Being active has always been a part of my life and I wanted to make sure that wasn’t something I lost after having a kid due to a busy schedule. During pregnancy I continued a high level of fitness and exercise, it was something I prided myself in. It wasn’t until after having Lena that I wasn’t sure what route to take to get back to my “normal” self. After my home birth of Lena, I was on a 3week “no exercise” rest period to allow my body to recover and I was super anxious to get back after it. Once that time had passed, I began doing at-home AppleFitness body weight workouts, just to get moving again and regain my strength and tone. After about 6wks, I knew I needed/wanted something more, I needed to get back into the gym regularly, but I had a child and nowhere to take her while I worked out in the evening because daycare was closed, my husband works late and I wasn’t getting a babysitter for one hour on days I wanted to workout. So I am grateful to have been told about this place. Coming to this gym has been nothing short of amazing. I love the challenging workouts that feed my inner competitiveness AND being able to bring Lena with me!
