SMP 41: Lift Weights Faster With Jen Sinkler
In this episode, Seb and Josh interview the wondefully “Stella” Jen Sinkler of www.jensinkler.com. A laugh a minute, Jen share’s her story and manages to go toe to toe with Seb & Josh and keep them both in check. Great story and fantastic entertainment.
Who is Jen Sinkler? In her own words…
I’m Jen Sinkler. I spent a decade as Experience Life magazine’s fitness editor and editorial director of fitness, and now I’m a fitness writer for a number of national magazines. I’m passionate about delivering high-quality information in a way that doesn’t patronize or bore you (unfortunately, these often seem to be your options). I continue to draw on my background in publishing, providing interviews with those leading in their respective fields. I don’t do the thing where I pretend to be an expert in every topic — that seems exhausting and ill advised, so instead I seek out the best information and provide it to you here.
I also train clients at The Movement Minneapolis, a gym I own with my husband, deadlift aficionado David Dellanave. Our facility implements a biofeedback-based training approach in a small-group training environment. The methods we use mean everyone trains a little bit differently, in a way that suits that person’s body best each day. It’s a little bit weird, to tell you the truth.
Speaking of weird, I’m a fitness eclectic, and I like it that way. Not everyone enjoys hefting the same implement or training in the same style, and I want to be able to use all the toys in the gym, and to teach my clients to, as well.
I’m a kettlebell instructor through the RKC (Level 2) and KBA, and an Olympic lifting coach through USA Weightlifting; I also hold coaching certifications through Onnit, Primal Move, Progressive Calisthenics, TACFIT, CrossFit and DVRT (Ultimate Sandbag).
Social media is a fantastic way to connect, so if you’re around, swing by and say hi or ask me questions on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram (I’m on Pinterest, too). I’ve been named one of Huffington Post’s “20 of the Best Fitness Experts Worth Following on Twitter,” one of Shape magazine’s “Top 30 Motivators of 2013,” and one of Greatist’s “15 Must-Read Trainers Rocking the Web in 2013” and “100 Most Influential People in Health and Fitness” for both 2014 and 2015.
I played rugby for 13 years, many of those on the U.S. national 7s and 15s teams. I like to brawl a little bit, and I’m usually up for any sort of sport. What do you want to play?
In my spare time, I meditate, cook the meanest breakfast and reads every book I can get my hands on — 10 minutes at a time, before I fall asleep at night, the bed littered with our beloved dogs, Franklin and Zoey, who are featured heavily in my social media streams.
