Setting and Smashing Goals With Jen Pittaro


Jen Pittaro is a current client and badass, and she’s letting nothing stand in her way of finally standing on stage for her fitness competition.  When Jen’s first competition went virtual due to the continued pandemic issues, she refused to let that stop her. She committed to prepping for another competition in November and she has continued to smash her goals week after week. It was a pleasure having her on the podcast and I can’t wait for her to finally step on stage. 


What we discussed in this episode:
