Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here! If there’s anything I want you to know about me, I believe your body is powerful! It can do amazing things. In fact, when you begin to focus on all the incredible things your body can do, life becomes so much more enjoyable! The time you set aside for exercise each day can be something you look forward to.  

I love when step lovers all over the world find their way to my workouts! Trust me, I’m just as sad as you were when your local gym cancelled all your favorite step classes. I created a YouTube fitness channel with over 20 full-length Step Aerobics workouts you can work your way through, and I’ll continually add more. (I’ve even uploaded other workouts for my non-steppers too.)

My newest program Step Across America is now up on Amazon Prime Video for free if you have *Amazon Prime, or for rental or purchase. (*Available only in the USA, UK, Germany, and Japan at this time.)

If you love the convenience of working out at home on your schedule, and are looking for safe, fun, quality workouts, I’m always here for you!

website-aboutAbout Me: I started as a group fitness instructor teaching water aerobics so my sons could have free swim lessons. Teaching group fitness opened up a joy inside of me I had never experienced before! In 2008, I certified as a fitness instructor and had the amazing opportunity to attend a ‘One-on-One Instructor Training’ with Christi Taylor.

In 2009 I filmed my first step workout DVD called UnexpectedStepUnexpected Step. Once the DVD was complete I sent it off to Collage Video for review. At the time, Collage had a very intensive review process, where real-live instructors would extensively evaluate workouts that were submitted. I was over the moon when they requested an order from me. My DVD was being sold next to all of the amazing fitness professionals I’d worked out with in my home through the years.

Shortly after I turned 30, I lost my dad to pancreatic cancer.  Exercise gave me strength to face tough times in life, including losing my dad.  As a result, I’m very passionate about providing affordable (FREE), quality workouts for everyone.  I try to include a variety of workouts on my site YouTube Channel, and Amazon to give you lots of options to work out at home. I’ve even put together five 30 Day Workout Programs, in addition to my Learn to Step program and my Marching Program you can start at any time.

I love hearing from my participants all over the world. Send me your success story.  I’d love to feature you! No success is too small. I especially enjoyed reading comments from Susan, one of my participants on the Video Fitness Forum. She gave a review of my latest DVD, and my workouts as a whole:

  1. Dear Jenny
    I have been an enthusiastic stepper since the 90s but stopped going to gyms after my son was born. Besides, they have been reducing the number of Step classes…
    Thanks to your YouTube videos now I can do them at home! Your cues are just right . The choreography complex is enough so that we don´t get bored but not so complex that can´t be followed. I also love the percentage graph that shows how much of the workout has been completed. Keep up the good work! People from all around the world appreciated it!

  2. I would like to know if you can sell DVD’s for :
    1) Lower Body Weights-Aspen
    2) Upper Body Weights-Aspen
    3) Core and Abs

    I workout to one of your DVD’s every morning in my garage. My TV in the garage only takes DVD’s.
    Thanks so much! Anne

  3. I found you on youtube and love your workouts. You have become a verb in our house, I tell my husband “I’m going to Jenny” and he knows I’m doing one of your workouts. That aside, I struggle with the turn steps and straddles and would love for you to expand your tutorial section to include some of the more advanced steps.
    Thanks for sharing your workouts!

  4. I really like your shorter step workouts. Will you put some on DVD? What is step across America? I’m 61 so I have had to tone it down a little no high impact for me.

  5. Hi Jenny,

    I’m thrilled that you have new stuff. I had already seen it a few days ago on your website. However, how come you don’t DVD all your latest workouts? I’d love to buy them!
