Jason Penner

Head Trainer/Owner
Aspire Fitness is run by Jason Penner who has been in the athletic field since he was a young boy playing soccer. Jason then moved his focus to football, his career started with the Charleswood Broncos, then moved to his high school football team, the Oak Park Raiders. During his high school career Jason was highly decorated as a lineman, receiving the Kas Vidruk trophy (most outstanding lineman) two of his four years playing high school football. After high school Jason moved on to the University of Manitoba, where he and the Bison football program went to Toronto to compete in the 2001 Vanier Cup. Jason’s final year of football came as a running back for the inaugural season of the Winnipeg Rifles, he thoroughly enjoyed his time on the field but felt it was time to move on and concentrate on his academic career. When not on the gridiron Jason found himself in the class room pursuing his Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science. The four year degree offers courses ranging from the sociology of sport and exercise, to physiology of sport as well as the biomechanics of movement. Jason utilizes this multi-discipline approach to help clients reach their goals. During his final year of school, he began Aspire Fitness which to date has helped over 500 clients achieve their goals. Jason is always looking to further his education through literature and application.



Pushups to Pinups Coordinator
Sherri is an Aspire Fitness client that we first met when she participated in the second class of Pushups to Pinups program. Sherri’s previous participation in sports was in basketball, soccer, and running. Sherri felt it was time for a new fitness challenge and her husband, one of our client’s, suggested meeting with us to discuss the P2P program and even though she felt a bit nervous, Sherri signed up, jumped right into the program and never looked back. Since completing the program, Sherri has achieved her personal best half marathon finish and is trying her hand at adventure racing.
Having completed the P2P program, Sherri has an appreciation of the time and effort necessary to be successful in this program. She is available to answer any questions you may have throughout the P2P program, including organizing the services available prior to your photo shoot as well as booking your shoot with the very talented Kelly Morton of Kelly Morton Photography.
