The TriForce Story
TriForce started about 20 years ago, when Brooke and Jenn first met at their babysitter’s house. They've always shared a passion for an active, healthy lifestyle through sports and trying out new recipes (even to the point of catching the microwave on fire!). After going through schooling, in different concentrations, they've decided that their true passion lies in helping others achieve what they have: health and happiness.
That is why TriForce strives to offer top-of-the-line preventative health services in nutrition, physical and mental health at an affordable cost—we want to ensure that everyone who wants to make a positive change in their life has the ability to do so. Our goal is to create a facility that offers services for all components of health and well-being, and cultivate a community of healthy and happy individuals-- WELCOME!

Why become a health coach? Preventative health is vital to the quantity and QUALITY of life, however it's currently treated as a commodity. Information or gyms that are affordable can leave folks confused, unmotivated and stuck. I want to be a helping hand to show people that achieving the health and lifestyle they want is easy, affordable AND enjoyable!
Training style/ specialties:
- Strength and conditioning, particularly related to athletic performance
What do you love about TriForce? The community and self-realizations. No matter the day, I always leave with a BIG smile on my face-- which is even bigger when people realize how truly able and powerful they are. Nothing like incredibly surprised and excited faces after hitting a heavier weight or performing a new exercise they never thought they would ever be able to do!
Quick Fit Tip? Find a way of moving and eating that you ENJOY.
Fav foods? Anything I can dip: chips+ dip, veggies+ hummus, meat+ mashed potatoes, fruit+ peanut butter- cocoa powder spread
Hobbies outside TriForce? Eating Grant's newest food creation, sports- hockey, [beach] volleyball, basketball; hiking, travel (well, dreaming about traveling)
