Personal Trainer

She does not take fitness as a serious thing or a pressure on the body. It is not a chore for her.

Jennifer is good at running since grade school. She also keeps varying her workout routine by incorporating exercises like Physique 57 and SoulCycle.

A better gym motivates a person to go more often. So Carpenter likes to go to Equinox.

Regarding diet, she likes to maintain a balance between her splurges and eating clean, organic foods. As a gym-goer, eating clean foods will have a good impact on the body and the workout can be performed with much greater intensity. Jennifer feels herself full of energy, when she eats clean, organic foods.

Her go-to snack is having salad at Trader Joe’s.
