Head Trainer & Fitness Director
I’m a retired Baltimore Police Officer who taught self defense and weight management at the academy, with more than 18 years of personal training experience. I am a believer in “muscle confusion”. Doing the same workout everyday is not beneficial and also boring. See results and a change with me!

Hi there! My name is Jenny Mahaffey and I’m here to help you reach your personal best. I have a strong passion for health and wellness, as well as a desire to encourage and inspire others to obtain their goals.

I first became an AFPA Group Exercise Instructor in 2005, then received additional certifications in Senior Fitness, Arthritis Aquatics, Gliding and Kickboxing Instruction. In November 2009, I was holding my 3 month old son in my arms as a doctor diagnosed my other 18 month old son with a severe brain disorder, and life as I knew it stopped. The next day I became a stay at home mom in order to manage his twice-daily therapy appointments. I had long days and sleepless nights, at which time I decided to dedicate my career to fitness and became a Certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition and Wellness Consultant.
In 2013, I was promoted to Head Trainer and Wellness Coordinator at LDRC. Meanwhile, I implemented and managed the fitness program at the Flight Trampoline Park, also in Fairfax. I loved my clients, my class participants, and my career choice.
Yet in August, life called us to Ocean View, Delaware and I’m so happy to be here. Sooooo happy. It is beautiful here. If you’re not sure about personal training come chat with me at the gym. I’ll be happy to speak with you. I’d love to help you be the best you!
I am NFPT certified in Personal Training and Sports Nutrition, with continuing education credits through AFPA in Core Strength, BOSU Balance/Conditioning and Lower Body Sculpting. I am also a national NPC Figure Competitor (bodybuilding).
I strive to help my clients reach their goals and believe that anything is possible! Whether the aim is general health, rehabilitation from injuries, sports specific conditioning, physique transformation or just to feel good, I will do my best to help them achieve it. Another beneficial aspect gained from training is confidence and a sense of pride and accomplishment!
