Jen was the first member of State College Strength & Conditioning back in November 2010 working one-on-one with Bryan. She is also the first person to become a coach other than Bryan at State College Strength & Conditioning in 2011. In her teens, she ran track and cross country and continued running after high school before finding CrossFit. In addition to working as a Coach at State College Strength & Conditioning, Jen owns Jennifer Borigo, LMT – a massage therapy business. Jen loves climbing and mountain biking.
In 2013, Jen qualified for the USA Weightlifting Open in Dallas, TX.
Something most people don’t know about Jen? She is scared of heights. She loves to climb and go mountaineering, but she is scared the whole time!
