About me and The Home Fitness Club

Jen Zeltwanger

This site came to be because I've been involved in fitness and exercise most of my life and I love to write. In fact, I write for a living and my focus is the health and fitness industry. My fitness journey began in middle school with cross country and track and I added field hockey to the mix in high school. I earned a college degree in Exercise Science and have worked as a certified personal trainer, high school track coach, director of a trainer certification organization, college fitness professor and Physical Education teacher for Pre-K through 8th graders. 

As my family evolved (I have 3 kids) my fitness program had to evolve. When I quit working outside my home to be home with my children, I also quit working out outside my home (i.e. no more gym membership). I got creative with ways to get a good workout at home while the kids napped or played nearby.

I got tired of searching for ideas and only finding cutesy workouts or things that involved lifting your babies. (That can be a good workout but it wasn't enough for me!) I got tired of the idea that a home workout couldn't be challenging or produce results. I love creating intense workouts that get the job done quickly and efficiently. I love squats, HATE kale and like making fitness a natural part of my real life.

I decided that instead of searching the internet for ideas, I would just create my own. The Home Fitness Club was born in the summer of 2012. 

My site is constantly evolving but I love what I do and will continue to expand and add to it. I welcome comments and suggestions. Let me know if there is something you would like to see on the site or just drop me a line to say hi.

Happy Exercising,
