Rena Bartlett

Rena is a Certified Personal Trainer and Powerlifting Coach. She got into competitive powerlifting after battling with an eating disorder and realized, if she wanted to get stronger, she had to eat more and had to change her mindset. For Rena, physical and mental strength go hand in hand and that’s what she helps you focus on. Her training focuses on getting you to move better and more efficiently not only in the gym, but daily life as well. In her free time, Rena is typically found reading on the couch with her two cats.

Jacob has been a fitness professional since 2007, working in a broad range of roles including personal training, gym ownership, and coaching competitive Olympic weightlifters, powerlifters, and CrossFit athletes.

Despite a lifetime of consistent exercise and over a decade of coaching athletes at high levels of competition, Jacob spent many years struggling to control his own eating habits and bodyweight. Between his experiences as a coach and those of his personal fitness journey, he brings a broad range of skills to bear when working with clients. Whether you’re a weightlifter who wants to refine your snatch technique, a powerlifter in need of programming to take your strength to the next level, a runner who wants to supplement your routine with strength training, or just looking to improve your quality of life through fitness, Jacob has the tools to help you succeed.

Jacob has been fortunate to learn from some of the best weightlifting, powerlifting, and endurance coaches in the United States. He has worked in writing and/or consulting capacities for Juggernaut Training Systems, Renaissance Periodization, Complete Human Performance, and Reactive Training Systems.

For clients of any level of fitness, Jacob emphasizes the development of skills and habits designed to build a productive and sustainable training process. He offers personal training, exercise programming, and a hybrid of the two - especially valuable for clients who travel frequently.

When he’s not writing programs or working with clients, Jacob enjoys training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, playing Magic: The Gathering, and reading between sets. You can reach him via this contact form, or e-mail him directly at
