Meet Jen Cardella

I thought it would be fun to get to know some of our female coaches here at Crossfit Central. Over the next few weeks I will be spotlighting the amazing women who train/nurture/yell at/laugh with us. Now, on to.......

Jen Cardella

How were you introduced to Crossfit?

I was first introduced to crossfit while working overseas. It looked crazy...and I was tired of running marathon after marathon...so I tried it. I was hooked after the first week. I started at Crossfit Central as soon as I got back to the U.S.

Favorite WOD/lift:

Diane, Heavy Front Squat

Favorite Zone/Paleo Meal:
Steak salad with bell pepper, avocado, and baby tomatoes

Favorite cheat meal:
pineapple wrapped in prosciutto, dark chocolate, and wine

I have always wanted to be a pistol instructor

1 word people use to describe me: loyal

Outside of the gym I like to play with my dogs, visit my grandparents in New Braunfels, work in my yard, and run

Favorite place to eat in Austin: Buenos Aires Cafe

Song that gets me pumped up for a workout: Anything by Beastie Boys

Something nobody really knows about me or would be surprised to know: I have 5 younger brothers and sisters- all are or will be taller than me.

Best piece of advice anyone’s ever given you: Keep your mouth shut, your ears open, and be honest.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Living in Italy with my husband....sipping wine and crossfitting
