10/10 Jen is the real deal
 
By Jill Walz / Eagan, USA

My sister has been going to Jen for over three years. She always talked about how great the classes were. I played college sports and have since fell out of a fun workout routine. I also was not at all happy with what was going on with my body. I started with Jen just 10 months ago and I love it. There are so many different workouts. You never get bored or tired of the same routine because they are all different. It doesn’t matter if you are a rookie or not...Jen teaches and coaches you and puts you at ease. I would highly recommend Jen to anyone...young or old, experienced or new, fit or not...Jen will get you to where you want to be!!!

 
10/10 GREAT WORKOUT!
 
By Jen V / Inver Grove Heights, USA

I have been going to Jen's classes for almost 3 years and love it! Even after all this time, I'm still challenged at class. Jen shows alternative moves to accommodate everyone's needs. I have gained overall strength and lost many inches! My arms used to ache after doing household chores and my grip was very weak. This has all changed. I highly recommend Jen and Kettle Strength! If you're thinking about it...give it a try. You'll love it!

 
10/10 Hands down the BEST!!
 
By Kelly Kriesel / Farmington, United States

There is no better place than Jen’s kettlebell classes!! ! I have had the privilege of being trained by Jen for numerous years and what I love most about her & her classes is they are always evolving & pushing me to become stronger and better. I have numerous injuries (bad back & a repaired ruptured Achilles) that sometimes impede my workouts but yet another thing I love about Jen is she knows when I need to sharpen up my form, when I need to be pushed & when I need to be dialed back in. She will offer modifications to me so when I leave for the day I leave feeling like I had a fantastic workout even though I may had to modify because of having an off day. The kettlebell & Jen’s classes have played such an important role in my recoveries from my 2 surgeries and a vital role in keeping my back strong to live a pain free life. She keeps class fun and exciting while pushing you to become a better stronger you. There is no better feeling than getting through a challenging workout with the support and encouragement of an excellent instructor!! You truly are missing out if you don’t come and take one of Jen’s classes, I can guarantee you WILL be hooked after only one time! Jen is hands down the BEST!

 
10/10 Jen+Kettlebells= Best Workout Around!
 
By Molly McGillen / New Prague, USA

I am so grateful my path crossed with Jen's! She was able to create a customized workout plan for me that continually changes as I progress. Jen's workouts fit my life perfectly. They combine cardio and strength training without taking hours! I look forward to my 45 minutes with Jen as her energy is contagious! I have seen such an increase in energy and strength since starting Kettlebells. Her knowledge and passion about fitness is unlike anyone I have ever met!

 
10/10 Amazingly Motovatioal!
 
By Kimberly Hart / Apple Valley, United State

I started and was introduced to kettlebells by Jen around 4 years ago. Her passion and ability at teach are outstanding. Everyday when I go to workout, I am amazed by how she mixes things up. Keeping it at the perfect range of pushing us to try new things to mixing it with what we have mastered. I feel strong and confident during class and if I need some extra instruction, she can deliver it in a way that is positive and encouraging. The classes are full of fun and laughter which makes them so much more enjoyable. The results are incredible, and I feel my body has had a complete workout after leaving her classes. Seeing the age range and mix of men and woman shows me just how well Jen has the ability to connect with her clientele. I love telling people about the studio and anyone who has gone has been equally as impressed with the level of quality of instruction they receive. She is professional, yet has the ability to create a very inviting atmosphere. Hands down one of the best instructioners out there in the fitness industry!!

 
10/10 Most effective workout for strength and cardio
 
By Sue Mortensen / Mendota Heights, United States

I started with Jen's studio almost 2 years ago and have never felt stronger or more toned. I had never thrown a kettle-bell before and while my body screamed in protest to moving muscles that I did not know I had, my body now craves the challenging workouts that touch all muscle groups. I attend her classes at least 3 days a week and no workout is ever the same. I highly recommend Jen's hidden gem and encourage anyone interested to give it a try. You will not be sorry.

 
10/10 A CUT ABOVE THE REST
 
By Mary Ann Beissel / Apple Valley, United States

I started working with Jen 7 months ago after a friend invited me to an intro class. I wanted my review to stand out however, the only one to stand out is Jen Kalmes ! Every review says the same thing over and over because there are only so many different ways one can say the same thing. Jen is an amazing instructor !! She is truly passionate about the kettlebell and her clients. Jen brings only positive, and encouraging vibes into her studio. She is truly sincere about wanting the best results for everyone, no matter what their fitness level might be. I have worked with personal instructors before but I did not know that they lacked passion until I met Jen. Jen watches our techniques and movements. She is so knowledgeable about the kettlebell workout and how it affects the human body. She is always there to improve our techniques, to keep us safe and moving forward. She is NEVER condescending or patronizing when instructing us. I have never left Jen's Studio without feeling better about myself. She carries a positive energy that she clearly wants everyone to be able to experience. I am very fortunate to have been introduced to her. Since working with Jen, I have lost 9.5 inches. I have had to get rid of so many clothes and a few belts. ( Yay ! ) My body fat has decreased from 36.7% to 33%. I have worked with other trainers but have never seen my body fat decrease like this before. If you want to feel better about yourself, to be able to physically move through your day to day life more easily, and not have to wait for someone to open your jar of pickles, then this is the place to come.

 
10/10 Life changing
 
By Diane Oslund / St Louis Park, USA

Jen is a high energy very knowledgeable instructor. I love that she helps people transform into the best version of themselves. Jen always makes me feel comfortable with where I'm at and shows me modifications if I need them. I'm so fortunate that I've been able to work with her and see the differences the workouts have made in my life. Love the studio too!! Thanks Jen for all you do to make my workouts Rock!

 
10/10 Amazing place!
 
By Shannon Pelzel / Prior Lake, USA

I've never been big into workout. That is until I started working out with Jen. Before long I was hooked 4-5 days a week. I was able to go down 2 sizes and 20 pounds lighter. Never felt stronger! Everyday is something different, Jen is always introducing new exercises to class. So you never get board! Encouraging environment be in! Crossroads Kettle Strength Studio is the place be!

 
10/10 Jen is amazing!
 
By Erin Porter / Farmington, USA

Jen is an awesome coach/instructor/motivator! She knows how to push her clients - but never makes you feel intimidated, she just truly makes you your best! If you've ever wanted to feel strong and empowered to try a kettlebell workout - but are intimidated by big gyms - this is a great place! Jen holds me accountable for my goals and helps me to accomplish them - there is nothing I can't do! I also love how much Jen is forever evolving her kettlebell practice - she's always got great new exercises and techniques. Workouts are never boring and always challenging!

 
10/10 Best Place to Workout By Far!
 
By Maria Mau / Rosemount, United States

I haven't really worked out since high school and I am now in my late 30s' and became more serious about working out. I worked out on and off where I start and stop at different gyms because you only typically receive the personal training sessions a couple times when you first sign up as a promo, then you are on your own. With Jen it is different as every class she creates effective workouts, she works with you and demonstrates everything! I never feel lost and her encouragement pushes you harder making you feel confident about your workout which makes you come back for more, not to mention the results. The workout lasts about 45 minutes which is perfect amount of time for someone who has full schedule. This is the first time I have ever stuck to any kind of workout for an extended period of time. I can't wait to continue my journey with Jen to better my health and physique. Thank you, Jen for an awesome start to a new me!

 
10/10 Jen is the best!!
 
By Ashley Parshley / Savage, USA

Jen is an amazing person and trainer. She is dedicated, focused, and will get you to where you want to be. Her studio is inviting and will leaving you wanting to come back everyday! No matter who you are or where you begin, Jen will be right by your side, coaching you through the struggles and celebrating your accomplishments!

 
10/10 A true inspiration!
 
By Melissa Behles / Eagan, USA

Jen's classes are the reason I fell in love with kettlebells almost three years ago! Every class that she teaches is so well thought out, include movements that work your entire body from head to toe, and most of all, are fun! She gives careful consideration to each class attendee so that everyone gets the most impact out of their individual workout. She thoroughly demonstrates each move, and gives great suggestions for modifications. She is a true mentor as a trainer and she continues to be an inspiration to me everyday!

 
10/10 Pushes me to be stronger!!
 
By Paige Suhsen / Eagan, United States

Jen is an amazing trainer! One thing I love about her being my trainer is that she pushes me to grab the heavier bell because she believes in me and believes I can do it. She teaches me moves I never thought I could ever do and continues to show me that I can be as strong as I want with hard work and dedication. I have been going to her classes for 3 years now and everyday is different and just, if not more, challenging than the previous day! Love her and love her classes.

 
10/10 Rewarding both physically and mentally...
 
By Lisa Glab / Eagan, United States

I have been going to Jen's classes since early February. I went for my free trial introduction class and week of workouts and fell in love with it. My past history of working out was free weights and machines so this was all new to me. Jen takes the time to show you proper form when doing all the swings. She explains it in such a way that when I am doing my swings or snatches, I am hearing her words of correct technique in my head. If I am doing something incorrect she will show me the correct way. I feel that I am getting personal training in every class. I like the strength and conditioning classes that I have attended and am looking forward to TRX classes that I will be going to with her new class schedule. Jen and her workouts have been so rewarding to me. I feel stronger physically and I enjoy the friendships I have made with her and other class members. If I could rate Jen and her studio higher than 10 I would! 100% :) :)

 
10/10 Consistent Progress!
 
By Kurt Hartmann / Eden Prairie, United States

Jen is awesome! She is a trainer that truly cares. Her passion for her clients and their success shows in every workout. Her classes and training sessions are amazing. Do yourself a favor and go train with her!

 
10/10 Has you doing things you wouldn't think you could
 
By Aimee Stark / Apple Valley, USA

I love this class it is fun and Jen is so motivating and really pushes you to your limits. My arm strength improved So much going to her classes . It's a great group of people !

 
10/10 Awesome Instructor!
 
By Angie Ribar / Eagan, USA

Jen makes every class fun and upbeat! I now look forward to working out and always leave feeling good about myself. She has such a great attitude and knows how to motivate. I have tried gym memberships and working out on my own and always found excuses as why today wasn't a good day. Now I can't wait to go to her classes; it's almost like having a personal trainer rather than a "class" she helps every individual work on his/her technique. Absolutely LOVE IT!

 
10/10 Addicted!
 
By Amy Fischer / Eagan, USA

I did the intro with Jen and I'm already addicted. I look forward to learning something new from an amazing instructor and role model!

10/10 Amazing trainer
 
By Shanna Suhsen / Eagan, Usa

Crossroads Kettle strength is the place to be if you have the tenacity and desire to build muscle, feel great, and meet new people.

Jen is the perfect trainer always there to provide guidance and be that cheerleader as you "swing" through the class awaiting the next challenge! The results are incredible and overall feeling provides me a huge sense of accomplishment. I recommend to all my friends.Thank -you Jen!

 
10/10 Jen is an amazing instructor!
 
By Jodi Bryntesen / Eagan, USA

Every class and every instruction Jen gives is PERSONAL. She is genuinely interested in helping each person she instructs to learn, improve, progress and be as great as he/she can be. I have been a regular at Jen's studio for one year now and my body has changed dramatically thanks to Jen's guidance and her thoughtful, creative and challenging workouts. Her level of expertise is exceptional and she is always changing things up to keep our workouts interesting, timely, fun and challenging.

 
10/10 Passionate, supportive, results-driven Instructor
 
By Amanda Engstrom / Minneapolis, United States

Jen is the ideal RKC instructor. She is personal and seriously interested in creating a customized plan for any person that comes to her with goals in mind. The atmosphere in her class is fun, results-driven, goal-driven, and with out any discomfort of being judged. Any experience level immediately feels welcome and supported. When I started with her I had absolutely no experience with kettle bells training but with her guidance and support I've lost 30 lbs in the past year. This surpassed my original goal by 15 lbs! I highly recommend Jen for anyone who wants a passionate, supportive, knowledgeable instructor who helps you obtain the results that you want!

 
10/10 Jen is outstanding!
 
By John Doran / Farmington, USA

Kettle bells with Jen are always fun and challenging! Jens enthusiasm and passion for fitness is infectious. No matter how I feel walking into a class her positive attitude and enthusiasm motivates me. I had never touched a bell until I took my first class with Jen over a year ago, now I’m hooked!

By Julie McLaughlin / Apple Valley, USA

Jen is always upbeat and encouraging regardless of your ability and fitness goals. She is able to change the workouts to always keep it interesting and keep you motivated. It is obvious that she loves what she does which makes her an excellent instructor.

 
10/10 Professional, intelligent and motivational!
 
By Jamie Dilla / Eden Prairie, MN, USA

This instructor is amazing! In one session she had me motivated to start and continue workouts for all the right reasons. She understood my shortcomings (age, weight, etc...) had my best interest at heart as well as taking into consideration my physical limitations. I look forward to working with her in the future!
