Games Departure and Last Chance for Shirts

The time has come!  I’m heading down to Carson, CA for the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games.  I’ve been training since September with all of you guys by my side at some point or another…either sweating it out with me, cheering me on or giving me a “pick-me-up” when I most needed it.  You may not even realize that you helped me, but just the consideration of asking how my training is going, or a quick “Go Jenny” when I was doing a workout on my own and wanted to quit, or telling me quads are getting bigger (Chris Friedland)..ha!  Really though, you all, in some way or another have been a part of my journey and for that I can never thank you enough!

This is the last time I will post this…I promise!  But, there are a few “Team LaBaw” shirts left (mostly women’s tank tops in green and purple but a few men’s XL tees in green and grey).  I am headed out of town, but I will leave the extras at the gym.  The other coaches will be able to help you out if you want one.  They will be $20/shirt.  Thank you so much to those of you that have already purchased one, or two…or more.  The support is SO VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!  If you have already asked for one and haven’t picked it up, it’s at the gym waiting for you.

Here goes nothing Norcal….I’m gonna represent the best I know how!


Written by Jenny

Jenny LaBaw has been an athlete her entire life. As a 3-sport collegiate athlete, she competed in soccer, indoor and outdoor track and field. Post college she found her need for competition fulfilled through endurance running races anywhere from 5K’s to marathons. Her competitive drive led her to CrossFit in 2010 where she started training to compete at the elite level. In 2011, her first year competing in CrossFit, Jenny placed 2nd at the Northern California Regionals earning herself a spot to The 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games where she gained the title as the 6th Fittest Woman on Earth. In 2012 she improved her regional standings, taking 1st in Northern California and once again a spot to The Reebok CrossFit Games. Injury took her out of the 2013 season, but is working hard at returning to the Reebok CrossFit Games in 2014. Although, she enjoys competing, Jenny's true love is being outdoors mountain biking, hiking, waterskiing, snow skiing, camping and more with her boyfriend, Marcus and two yellow labs, Ziggy and Pogo. With her love for sport and exercise, Jenny chose a career as a personal trainer so she could share her passion of health and fitness with others. Attending Cornell College, she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Physical Education with an emphasis in Fitness and Wellness. Prior to Norcal, she has trained in gyms, private training studios, and coached soccer. Her 10+ years of coaching experience has allowed her to work directly with a wide variety of people from children trying to discover their coordination to adults wanting to shed a few pounds to professional athletes looking to be the best in the world. No matter what walk of life you are coming to her from, her mission is to make you realize your potential and help get you there. She will prove to you that you can be stronger, more fit, and healthier than you think you can be. With her inspiration, motivation and dedication, she will challenge your body, encourage your mind, and help you to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Jenny will help you be your best!
