BIO

Jen Howell grew up in Calvert County. She graduated from Northern High School and decided to continue to make this her home. After high school, she continued her education by receiving her Associates from The College of Southern Maryland in Biotechnology, a Bachelors from the University of Maryland University College (UMUC) in Environmental Management with a minor in Biology, and then a Masters from UMUC in Secondary Education. Jen is currently a science teacher for Calvert County Public Schools. Her love for teaching, as well as learning new things for herself, continued in deciding to earn her CrossFit Level 1 certification. She shares her love of fitness with the rest of her family, including her husband (coach Brian Howell) and her three children. She started CrossFit in January of 2017 when her husband talked her into joining right before the CrossFit Open and then was eager to join in on the fun. For her, spending an hour at the gym is not just time to strengthen your body, but also your mind. “Allowing time to decompress and enjoy time with your community allows for you to step away for your stresses for at least an hour a day.”

Certifications

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
NASM Certified Nutrition Coach (NASM-CNC)

I love to learn new things myself so being open to learning something new or extending my knowledge as well as wanting to share that with others can be very beneficial.

I love to help people learn new things and get better at things. Coaching is a great way to do both of those.

Clean or deadlift. 

Spend time with my family and be outdoors.

When they say it is for anyone, they are telling you the truth. All ages and all backgrounds can benefit from CrossFit or exercise in general.
