With a background in accounting and little athletic accomplishments to speak of growing up, Jen, or “J-Flo” as she’s most commonly known, stumbled into the health and fitness world through CrossFit in early 2009. Over the years, her passion for the sport and the impact of nutrition on her performance and overall health, have had a profound effect in many areas of her life.
As a mother of two (and with a third one on the way!), J-flo is grateful for the peace of mind that flexible eating has given her. J-Flo knows first-hand the struggles of yo-yo dieting, the sense of discomfort in her body and the frustrations of fad diets with little to no success.
Because of her own experiences, she is passionate about helping educate others to find sustainable methods of achieving their health, body, and fitness goals. J-flo believes that although fitness and athletics play an important role in a person’s overall health, nutrition is undoubtedly the foundation upon which health is built.
For J-Flo, the most rewarding aspect of coaching her nutrition clients is helping them to redefine their relationship with food and understand the concept of nutrition as a ‘lifestyle’ rather than a ‘diet’. J-Flo knows just how transformative this can be mentally and emotionally, and how powerful that transformation can be in unlocking a client’s true potential, athletically, aesthetically, and in everyday life.

Keirstein grew up around an active family that was always involved in some kind of sport but Keirstein wasn’t into sports at all. She ate her way through school without weight gain but after graduating, her metabolism finally caught up with her and she found she wasn’t able to eat whatever she wanted anymore! Keirstein went from 120lbs to 150lbs at 5’4, and for the first time ever, found herself having to think about her nutrition. She became unhappy with her appearance and so did what most people do; she started working out in a conventional gym and ate what she thought was “healthy” at the time. Soon enough she was jumping from diet to diet and fad to fad trying to find something that worked. Everything she tried was impossibly strict or left her feeling low energy and sluggish. Finally in 2016 Keirstein started going to CrossFit at North Naples CrossFit and that’s when her life completely changed.
At the time she had no idea what she was doing with school. She was the girl going to college because it was the “right” thing to do. She had no plan and was constantly switching career paths. About a year later Keirstein decided to quit school when she realized that fitness and health were where her passion lay. Keirstein loved what she learnt in the CrossFit community and from her coaches a the box. She learnt how to eat to fuel her body, she performed better and felt amazing and couldn’t believe that all this could be achieved without having to suffer some insane strict diet. Keirstein decided to intern at North Naples CrossFit and also enroll for the Precision Nutrition certification so that she could pursue her passions and help others enjoy the same quality of life she now experiences every day. Keirstein’s own experiences with health and fitness have made her realize how impactful nutrition is in many facets of our lives. Finding flexible eating has provided clarity to her nutrition where it used to be fraught with confusion. Keirstein is excited to help others implement this lifestyle and be the support system they need on their journeys. Look good, feel good and don’t suffer to get there.

Laura ran track in high school and tried to stay in shape with various fitness classes and distance running through her early 20’s. In 2015, after moving to a new city, she walked into her first CrossFit box.

Overtime, Laura has learned that consistency, developing strong habits and learning to love the process are keys to a successful lifelong relationship with food. She understands that nutrition is so much more than the food on your plate. It’s how we connect with family, comfort friends and fuel workouts. It’s at the core of our shared experiences and even more reason to learn to foster a healthy relationship with it and create habits that last a lifetime.
With a background in science, and a constantly growing obsession with all things health & fitness related, Laura is deeply passionate about sharing her nutrition knowledge with clients so that they have a better understanding and enjoyment of the foods they eat.
