Our Story

Ryan and Karin

When Ryan proposed did he offer Karin a ring?

Are you kidding!

Ryan bought a bicycle…not just any bike but a tandem…a bike you can only ride with someone you really trust.

That is when we became “Team Jennings”.

Years later, after two kids and several seasons of recreational riding we entered our first Adventure Race as “The Newlyweds” and won riding that very same tandem. The excitement of winning that race spurred us on. Working as a team we completed several more Adventure Races. Sometimes winning, sometimes just glad to finish, but never losing sight of having fun and the importance of teamwork.

In 2005 Team Jennings decided to embark on yet another adventure. We sold our home and hit the road with our kids, then ages 4 & 6, on an extended field trip around the United States. Sounds like an adventure doesn’t it? Besides seeing the sights we visited health clubs all around the nation doing “research” because we intended to open a “health club” when we settled down again.

We thought visiting health clubs would give us lots of good ideas on what works and what does not. A strange thing happened; we concluded that we did not want to open a  simple gym that offered the antiquated selectorized exercise equipment and let people try to figure it out on their own.  What we really wanted was to help people achieve their individual health and fitness goals with information and exercises that would challenge them head to toe.    This was an extraordinary “aha” moment for us:

XO Fitness was born!
