Jacob Kender


Hi, everyone! My name Jacob. I am going into my senior year of the construction management degree here at Ferris. I enjoy working out because it benefits both my physical and mental health. Physically, it feels really good to push myself towards a goal that is not easily achievable. It also pushes me mentally to be consistent both in the gym and what I'm eating on a daily basis. I'm excited to work with other students and help them progress on their fitness journey, whatever that looks like to you! Let's get started when you're ready. 

Josie Schwierking


Hello! My name is Josie and I am a senior this year and will be graduating with a bachelors in marketing. I love to workout because I care about my health and it makes me feel and look good. I love starting my day with a workout because it gives me extra motivation to accomplish my daily goals. I'd love to work with you and help you develop more confidence in the gym and to help you achieve your fitness goals! Let's go!

Mara Lynch 


Hello! my name is Mara and I'll be entering my Junior year here at Ferris. I'm currently studying psychology, and in my free time, I enjoy getting in the gym and working out. Fitness for me has been a healthy outlet to work and focus on myself. Seeing results after putting in the work is very rewarding! I also love bringing my friends to the gym and working out with them as well. I would love to help students and others who want to lget in the gym but don't know where to start! I can't wait to help you work towards achieving your fitness goals.
