About this pro

How does your service stand out?

Nova is a training program designed to fit your personal fitness objective, budget, and schedule. Jenna Mary Fryer, trainer at Nova PT, has had 3+ years experience in the field. Her specialties include integrative rehabilitation for acute or chronic injuries, women's strength training, fat loss, and strength&conditioning for MMA athletes. I want to pass on my passion and knowledge to others, especially those who are demotivated or intimidated. My goal is to ensure my clientele have a full understanding of movements needed to adjust body composition, increase muscle mass, build strength, and increase mobility.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Fitness had a profound impact on my life and I want to spread this passion to others. I love watching clients' transformations, but my favorite part of the job is seeing how they start to fall in love with being a stronger, healthier person. Fitness is a long journey, but it is worth the effort.

    Jenna is awesome.
    I cannot say enough great things about Jenna as a personal trainer. As a marathon runner myself who experiences pain daily from my training schedule and shin splints, Jenna has helped me to develop a solid stretching routine that helps me run pain free. She has also helped me to foam roll correctly. If you are a fellow runner or not one at all and just want to get into shape, look no further than Jenna at Nova Personal Training!

    Great Trainer!
    I trained with Jenna for about a year and was thrilled with my results. She was always able to keep the workouts dynamic -- there was a constant mixture of new exercises with increasing levels of challenge week after week.

    Look no further - Jenna is the best
    Jenna designed multiple programs (weight loss, build-strength and build muscle mass) along with teaching the proper form, motivating me to push through and achieve all of my goals. I couldn't have asked for more from a trainer.

    Amazing!
    Jenna is an excellent trainer. She goes above and beyond for her clients and is extremely dedicated to her job. I've have had exceptional results and now actually look forward to exercising!

    She is good
    I have worked with Jenna for about a year, she is a joy to work with but takes no shame in kicking you ass. She is a well versed crafts woman and an amazing trainer and fight coach. The beat thing about Jenna is the fact that she meets you where you are in your fitness journey and builds a program around you and your goals. I recommend her highly!

    Best Trainer Ever!
    At first I didn't think I'd be able to get fit - I'd get winded climbing a flight of stairs - but Jenna makes it so easy! Her workouts are engaging and fun, and she's incredibly knowledgable. There were so many times when I would have given up, but Jenna believed in me and helped me persevere. She designed a fitness routine and diet for my needs and totally transformed me into a healthy person!

    The Best
    Jenna's a pro! Smart, accommodating, and strong as three oxen. She will mold you into a powerful warrior.

    Jenna is great!
    I've been training with Jenna for almost a year and she is great! She makes the time enjoyable even if the activity you're doing is challenging and not so fun. She's also very considerate about personal limitations like injuries and is more than willing to change an entire program to fit your needs.

    Amazing trainer!
    Jenna is such a patient, supportive and awesome trainer! Personal training has always seemed really intimidating to me, but having a positive and affirming trainer like Jenna really changed my perspective and my outlook on my own health.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Depending on your experience and fitness goals, we will work 2-3 times a week. I start off with a basic yet effective program (1-2 months). We will raise all your base fitness levels including proper form, strength, cardio, balance, core stability, and posture. The next 2-3 months will build off of your program. We refine your program based on goal changes, movements you struggle with, and your goal.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been a personal trainer since 2014. I got my start at Jake's Fitness in Brooklyn and quickly moved to Equinox in Manhattan. Since my start, I have trained dozens of clients, all with different strengths and weaknesses. Equinox allows a continuing education process-I was lucky enough to attend hundreds of classes and seminars throughout my time with the company. I am well-versed in anatomy and physiology, including musculoskeletal pathologies. I have attended classes specializing in functional range conditioning, optimal performance training, integrative rehabilitation, alignment through exercise, functional movement, and nutritional coaching.

How did you get started doing this type of work?
At 21 years, I was extremely unhealthy. I was a chain-smoking artist who couldn't run a mile or do 1 pushup. I soon began to explore fitness through much trial and error. By the time I was 23, I had completely quit smoking, ran 4 half marathons, was lifting weights regularly, and was competing as an amateur muay thai fighter. After sustained injuries from martial arts, I took a hiatus to pursue fitness and health full-time. I am now a seasoned trainer with a wealth of knowledge in fitness, health, and proper movement.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I primarily work with amateur athletes and general population. As most sports go, most of the athletes I train are dealing with a chronic or acute injury. I take athletes through integrative rehabilitation, working with their physical therapist. I have also trained people with very different physical issues that led to similar pathologies. For instance, I had a 20 year old female client who constantly sprained her ankle due to hypermobility, but also a 36 year old male who suffered from plantar fasciitis due to hypomobility. I love to focus on strength training for women, since I have been through that exact journey before. There's an unfair stigma surrounding strength training: the "it-gets-you-bulky" myth (strength training actually promotes fatloss). My goal is to teach people that strength training is an important component of your fitness and rehab process.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure you have a fitness goal in mind, even if it's a general idea. Training without a goal is just exercise, and nothing will be accomplished. What does fitness mean to you? Do you want to work on your performance or body composition? Do you want to build strength or work on your cardio? Do you want to gain muscle or lose fat? Though all of these goals sound similar, they are very different when it comes to what program I create for you.
