About Skoogfit

Jenny Skoog is a personal trainer who specializes in women’s fitness from bride-to-baby. Not only does she coach women through the most important moments of their lives, she is also a steadfast partner during labor and delivery. Jenny is a birth coach, a childbirth educator and master trainer in pre-and-postnatal fitness. Jenny’s passion for cooking also led her to become a nutritionist.

Skoog was born and raised on a small farm in rural Minnesota. Like many women in their mid-twenties, she moved to New York City in search of adventure.  After a few fattening and unsatisfying years in the corporate world, she chased a dream, deciding to turn her favorite hobby into a career. She accepted an offer at one of New York’s top gyms, where she honed her skills before launching her own fitness and health business, Skoogfit, a way of life for women seeking help with all aspects of their health picture. In 2013, she starred in her own TV show, Pushing It, and was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2014.

Her own fitness regimen includes Muay-Thai kickboxing, strength training, biking and running in Central Park. She lives in beautiful Harlem with her husband, Stanley, and their dog, Annie.
