Thanks to her “Navy brat” upbringing, Janel has lived all over the place, from her hometown in upstate New York to growing up in sunny San Diego. However, nowhere could have prepared her for the humidity of outdoor running in Virginia Beach! So Janel decided that she prefers to remain indoors and work on strength or power exercises instead. (We don’t blame her.) After getting a degree in health & fitness from East Carolina University, Janel worked in corporate fitness for the better part of a decade. These days, Janel swears by a mantra of “quality not quantity” when it comes to executing successful fitness plans for our Wareing’s Gym clients.
