About Jenifer

Jenifer Wirtshafter

“Exercise brings me Joy, and sharing that joy with my friends and clients is my passion and my mission!”

A lifelong devotee to fitness and exercise, Jenifer started teaching group exercise classes in high school and continued teaching throughout college. At Rutgers, Jenifer raced on the downhill ski team. After graduating, she wanted to share her love for the sport and put the corporate world on hold while she traveled the world and then became a ski instructor in Vail, Colorado.

Her corporate career began at General Electric in Sales and Marketing but in 2006, Jenifer returned to her passion and became an ACE certified trainer. In that same year, she founded Jeni-Fit Studios. Jenifer has multiple national fitness certifications and has studied nutrition extensively. Her central New Jersey business is a place “Where Change Happens.” JeniFit specializes in teaching clients how to incorporate healthy nutrition and exercise into their lifestyle. “Our goal is to make changes that last a lifetime!” Jenifer’s clients rave about the success they have had following her Deflate Your Weight Program. They are passionate about the program because, ”it works!”

After 12 years of being in a Studio setting, Jenifer decided to travel outside of the walls of the Studio and to take groups on outdoor journeys. There she could share her passion for nature. Jenifer loves all things outdoors. The time she spends in nature allows her to be present and mindful. Whether jogging, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, downhill skiing or walking her dog in the park, the outdoors is where she feels that she is her best self.

Jenifer grew up eating a heart healthy diet, her philosophy is “if it comes from a plant eat it and if it is made in a plant, don’t.” She has shared this mantra with clients for many years in helping them achieve a healthier, happier life. Jenifer believes that good food is a great medium to bring people together in a joyous way. She strives to eat healthy and to eat local! Each Live Journey Fit trip is filled with delicious, locally sourced foods, drinks and snacks whenever possible.

A study abroad program in High School birthed an endless love of travel and desire to see the world. She learned that sometimes you don’t have to go far to uncover amazing, hidden gems. This passion and Jenifer’s love of healthy eating, outdoor adventure and mindfulness were the impetus for a new business. In 2016 Live Journey Fit was born.
