DYW was simply a life changing program for me. It helped me learn to love my body and take care of myself in a positive, healthy way. I have a newfound passion for exercise and fitness, so much that I pursued my own fitness certification as a spin instructor. I’m thankful for this program everyday because its a true testament to the power of mental toughness and self-love. I owe my confidence and healthy lifestyle to Jeni-Fit- Kimmie Siehl

Loosing weight has always been easy for me. Just watch what I ate and run a few miles and it would come off. But then I hit 40 my luck had changed. I’ve spent the past few years just chasing my weight. Dieting and trying new exercise programs has not worked. With a bad knee my running days were over. Two years ago I found Jeni-Fit. I had been to many classes including spin, barre, TRX and tone, but I still couldn’t shake the extra pounds. When Jen talked to me about DYW I couldn’t wait to try it. Each nutrition class I went to taught me more about not only weight loss, but how to change my way of eating. Deflate Your Weight has armed me with so many tips on healthy eating that even when I fall off the wagon it’s so easy to get back on and start where I left off. Thank you Jeni-Fit for making eating healthy so much easier then it ever was – Karen Cueto

After seeing how much success a couple of friends had with JeniFit and Deflate Your Weight, I knew I had to get involved. With the help of the whole Jenifit Team, I have transformed not only in body but more importantly in mind. At a very important time in my life, DYW has helped me develop a new sense of self and grow so much in such a little amount of time. I now know how to listen to and care for my body in ways I would have never imagined. The JeniFit community has been a constant source of motivation and support to continue to be the best me I can, and I can’t thank everyone enough for that! I’m looking forward to seeing how the knowledge and skills I’ve gained continue to expand and help me along this life-long journey!- Jenn Helm
Dyw has helped me to get back on track. The support at the weekly meetings was great. The meal plans were easy to follow and the personal training kept me accountable. The tools I’ve learned at DYW will help me continue in my fitness journey to reach my ultimate goal.

I have been a JF client for 1 1/2 yrs and have enjoyed it right from the beginning. My very first class was Spin with Christine, I wasn’t able to get out of the saddle the whole time and didn’t think I’d last the 45 min but I did it and felt great! Although I couldn’t walk for the next couple of days, for those of you who have spent a whole spin class in the saddle you know what I mean, I knew that I was hooked on JF.
I just recently finished DYW and can’t say enough about this program. My main obstacle was/is portion control and this program has helped tremendously with that. I highly recommend getting the portion control containers from Jeni-Fit, they’ve become a staple in my food prep. The three amigo’s, better known as Jenifer, Ann and Cheryl were a great support system during the program. They each had a hand in helping me on this journey and I know I will be able to take their knowledge and advice and have continued success. I have to say that my favorite part was the semi personal training sessions. It gives you the opportunity to try all the classes that JF has to offer. My partner in crime was Janine Abrahamson and she was awesome! Our first training was with Jenifer and she had us each carry a 10lb medicine ball up 3 flights. That 10lb ball represented the 10+ extra pounds I was carrying around with me all the time. I’m happy and proud to say that I’m down 12+ lbs and have finally dropped that ball!

What started out as a suggestion from a good friend to try a spin class at Jeni-Fit has changed into a life changing journey.   I felt so comfortable and accepted at Jeni-Fit that I began to try some of the other classes offered like barre and boxing. I quickly became hooked.  The classes are small and the instructors are very helpful.

I decided to join DYW in September 2014 to lose the baby weight; my baby is 9 years old! After the initial assessment I was nervous that I would not be able to stick with it but that quickly changed because I was given the tools to make better food choices. I started eating “clean”, tracking my food, and exercising regularly.  DYW taught me that weight loss is 90% mental and I was ready to make myself a priority. I felt so inspired by Christine’s story that I began to think I can DO this!

Jen makes sure that everyone feels comfortable at Jeni-Fit. She takes the time to really listen to what you have to say and helps you achieve your goals. My DYW group was and still is wonderful. There is so much support, encouragement and motivation at Jeni-Fit that you feel like you have become a part of a family, a community of women and men supporting one another to be the best you can be.

After the 9 week program I lost 26 lbs. and felt so good about myself. I continued to exercise regularly and joined a second mini DYW to keep me on track. Not only did I stay on track but I lost another 11 lbs., bringing my total to 37lbs.

To date, I have lost 43lbs and gained my life back. I feel like the “old” me. Christine and Jen continue to support and encourage me along this journey and now it is time for me to pay it forward.      


As a long time Jeni-Fit client I decided to participate in the first ever Deflate Your Weight Challenge in September 2012. I was determined to take off unwanted pounds and reclaim my health. The combination of nutritional guidance, exercise and the support of my fellow participates helped me lose 20 pounds in the first six weeks. The program kept me motivated, held me accountable, provided sweat drenching workouts and tracked and celebrated my success along the way. After the challenge I continued to take Jeni-Fit classes regularly, committed to eating “clean” and to date am down a total of 50 pounds. DYW taught me that weight loss is not only physical but also mental. I needed to change my mindset about food, exercise and commitment to myself. I needed to tell myself I can and I did!

What I love about Jeni-Fit is the warm, friendly environment among members and instructors. It is not intimidating which for me was an important factor in getting started and sticking with it. The small class sizes at Jeni-Fit give you the benefits of personal training, but with the encouragement and energy of a group class. Instructors know you by name and provide you with the motivation you need to push yourself further than you would on your own. Jeni-Fit is more than just a gym to me. It’s an amazing community of people who support and care about each other. At Jeni-Fit I get to workout, have fun, make friends and most importantly see results.

The biggest compliment I get is when people tell me I am an inspiration. I did this for myself but am in awe of how my journey has helped so many realize that it’s never too late to reclaim your life and get fit. With the encouragement of Jenifer and my friends at Jeni-Fit I decided to get certified and share my passion. I am currently certified in Indoor Cycling, Piloxing and trained in the Jeni-Barre Method. I believe that fitness classes should be motivating, challenging but most of all fun. As I like to say, “I want you leaving with a smile but feeling like I kicked your butt!”

Thank you Jenifer and your team at Jeni-Fit for helping me see my potential and reach my goals. There’s no better feeling than Healthy!



As one of your “original” Jeni-Fit clients, I’ve been enjoying your indoor and outdoor classes. Last year, however, I decided to “Make Change Happen” for myself and did your Deflate Your Weight program. As a working Mom who hates to cook, I thought it would be too hard to get any real results, but the combination of nutrition and fitness classes were very manageable and provided the tools I needed to finally lose weight and get healthy.

I lost 13.5 pounds during Deflate Your Weight and a total of 20 pounds since I started. Remarkably, I’ve gone down THREE pants sizes! I got to buy myself a whole new wardrobe!

Better than that, however, I’ve made lasting changes to live a healthier life.
I feel better and stronger than I have in a long time. Your variety of classes keeps me coming back (Zumba is my new favorite) and your personal touch and attention helps me stay motivated and on track to keep the weight off.

Thank you for your support and encouragement and for helping me to finally meet my weight loss goals!



I know I needed to do something about my weight and my fitness level. I hated treadmills and did not have the discipline to drag myself to the gym. When I saw an online ad for a boxing class, I decided to try it.

I was looking for exercise that was not boring or repetitive. When I started, I could not keep up with the other participants. All the trainers took the time to make sure the programs met my exercise level. I always felt like I got personal attention in a group environment and for group rates.

As my weight came down and my endurance increases, the classes remain challenging. All the instructors are fun and enthusiastic without being intimidating.

Both the boxing and the spinning are great workouts but also great fun. I enjoy it so much that I actually look forward to a 5:45 AM class.

Even though most of my fellow participants are women, as a man I am continually engaged but also entirely comfortable.

I have now been attending classes for over 15 months. I have lost over 45 pounds and my cholesterol level has dropped from 207 to 169.

I am a true believer that change can happen!



Like almost everyone at every age, I had a desire to lose weight and put my physical fitness in my own hands. At 19 and a college student, I figured there was no better time to start than now. With the help of a very special aunt of mine, she introduced me to Jeni-Fit’s Deflate your Weight program and motivated me to start my journey.

At first I was nervous and feeling a bit out of place as one of the youngest people I saw in the gym and in the program, but within that same week of the beginning of the program, those feelings quickly evaporated. The Jeni-Fit family, (yes you quickly learn it is a family,) are the most motivational, supporting, and loving people you can find. That was a HUGE impact on my success. I was overwhelmed by inspiration and encouragement to keep going and push harder to reach my goal.

It’s evident that the Deflate Your Weight program changed my life. In the nine weeks of the program, I lost 30 pounds and three months after completing the program lost a total of 50 pounds. But I don’t like to focus on what I lost, it’s rather what I gained. I gained self confidence, happiness, motivation, and most importantly a new healthy lifestyle.

If you can’t already tell by all the other success stories, Jeni-Fit provides you with all the resources you need to find results. Never at 19 would I have thought that what I would look forward to most when coming home from school is going to Jeni-Fit. I still have more I look to fulfill and I’m still on my journey, but I can say with full confidence that it’s been the best and most accomplishing thing I’ve done in my life thus far.


I joined Jeni-Fit not with the intention of losing weight, but to become stronger, healthier and fit. Losing weight was a bonus!! At Jeni-Fit I started with the “DYW – Deflate Your Weight” program. I learned to shop for food, which lead to eating better. I learned to exercise the right way so I didn’t get injured. The large  variety of classes  kept me motivated and never bored. As Jenifer would say my eating became “mindful” and I “gave it my all” while I was exercising, I didn’t quit! Living right has become a way of life. I’m taking care of myself to stay a better me. Thanks, Jenifer. I truly could not have done it without you and your studio. xoxo
