Meet Jenni Porter of Jenergy Performance in Beverly Hills/ Bay Area

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jenni Porter.

Jenni, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Growing up, I played almost every single sport you could think of to where sports and teamwork was grilled in my brain at a very young age. Playing softball through college, I picked up the hobby of boxing on the side. This quickly turned into sparring, competitions, and getting the opportunity to travel and learn from some of the greatest boxing coaches in the world. After several injuries as an athlete while still trying to take care of myself financially, I had decided to use my education and begin Coaching/ Strength Training. I begin to explore with different cross-training from football, to soccer, to indoor cycling, and even to swimming and fell in love with what it was doing for the athletes I was training. Teamwork and community will always be important to me and I strongly believe in holding that. Every connection, coach, parent, athlete, I have ever met I stayed connected since day one. Fast forward to which is now seven years later; I have blessed to cross paths and train professional Athletes, celebrities, children, teams, adults, and most recently become a choreographer for fight scenes on several Netflix series! As of now, I travel weekly from the Bay Area to Los Angeles where I have clients, friends, and an awesome team/ community in both.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road has never been smooth, but I do really think if you make your career around your lifestyle, your struggles are not so bad. I am really passionate about my business, team, and community which I do carry in my life outside of coaching. It is my life.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
Our team strongly believes that every single human is an athlete as we are inclusive to athletes of all levels. Specializing in Athletic Development, we help all athletes understand how to move like the pros as well as introducing different cross-training. We are most well known for our boxing program, which is has been said to be one of the hardest workouts in the Los Angeles Area.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Teamwork & Community is the key to all success.
