Jenny Rearick

I’m passionate about understanding how the body works, how movement quality affects long-term health and fitness, and finding methods of training that don’t leave you feeling like you’re just trying to survive. We all deserve to thrive.

I began coaching strength & conditioning after my departure from a successful collegiate volleyball career. Collegiate sports opened my eyes to the positive impact strength can have on sport performance. More recently, I’ve joined Certified Functional Strength Coach as an Educator and Coach. Since joining the CFSC team, I’ve been on a mission to help people find their place in the gym and athletes be their best on the field or court. I want to help people exercise and move in a way that doesn’t cause pain and guides them (with a plan) toward their fitness and lifestyle goals; whether that be young athletes, weekend warriors, or everyday people who simply want to feel and look better.

There is a better way to train. One that doesn’t abuse your body along the way.

Outside of the gym, you can find me reading, hiking with Brendon and my step-daughter, enjoying the sun, and frequenting Tahoe. My goal is to enjoy everything life has to offer - everything in moderation, including moderation!

Athletic Accomplishments: Division I Volleyball with honors (Northern Illinois University), Division III Volleyball with honors (Loras College), Olympic Weightlifting Competitor

Professional Endeavors: Certified Functional Strength Coach (CFSC) Educator

Qualifications: Certified Functional Strength Coach L1 & L2

Brendon Rearick

Opening a training facility has been a dream of mine since I was 20 years old. It started with me reading Gary Vaynerchuk’s book Crush It and writing up business plans for my Entrepreneurship class at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. And here I am, ten years later, opening Train Smarter AND Harder with my wife in Brentwood, CA.

I began my coaching career at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning (MBSC) in Woburn, MA after graduating with a degree in Kinesiology. The growth-focused environment at MBSC motivated me in a way I had never experienced before. In just a few short years, I worked to become the Program Director at MBSC and earned my massage therapy license in the process, which lead to opening Movement As Medicine - a massage therapy clinic connected to MBSC. Soon after, I co-founded an educational company with four co-workers called Certified Functional Strength Coach. In just five years, CFSC has certified over 6,000 trainers in more than 20 countries.

My personal mission is to spread the positive by-products of coaching and movement using strength and conditioning as my platform. My career mission (before I retire) is to make physical activity the “most commonly prescribed drug in the world.” My hope is that when you train with me, and at TS&H, you see these missions embodied in the culture we’ve built and through the way we train.

I have an inexhaustible drive to learn and I dedicate most of my free time to reading and writing. If you have a book recommendation please find me and share! I have a beautiful, very active 5-year old daughter who has more energy than we know what to do with. When I’m home, you can find me lounging by the pool drinking a cold beer. Hiking is hands down my favorite form of exercise. To me, nothing beats the outdoors.
