If you like fitness and live in the DC area, chances are you've either taken or heard about Jenn Blackburn's classes. Jenn is one of the most talented fitness gurus in the country--no exaggeration--and, as a result, she was for the last six years, the area fitness manager for Equinox, her dream job. When the pandemic hit, Jenn left her dream job, realizing, like so many of us, that her priorities shifted. She is now an online instructor for Moxie, an online fitness platform (think Peloton but more interactive), and she has offered a free trial of her classes through this link: https://try.moxie.xyz/jen-blackburn-10-day-trial/. Jenn is a mom of five and tough as nails. While we spend some time talking about fitness, the bulk of this episode is a conversation about trauma and resilience. At age 48, Jenn is an expert on this topic after living a life that is filled with tragedy and, subsequently, hope. For those going through some hard stuff right now, we hope that this episode, which we release during Mental Health Awareness Month, that we can do hard things. In addition to Moxie, Jenn can be found on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/blackburn_jenn/
