Jessi Makenny

 

Jessi holds Bachelor of Kinesiology from the University of British Columbia and is a CSEP certified Exercise Physiologist. She is passionate about the science of exercise, training, and movement patterns, but also believes in simply helping people to cultivate lifelong enjoyment of physical activity.

Jessi grew up on a working ranch outside Calgary and spent time as a kid competing in multiple sports such as basketball, volleyball, cross country skiing, and track and field. Her passion for sport led her to pursue a degree in Kinesiology in Vancouver, and her love of the Rocky Mountains and the Calgary community brought her home. She believes helping people to become and remain healthier and more active is the best way to serve this fantastic city.

In her spare time, Jessi enjoys all things outside. Mountain biking and backcountry skiing are her passions right now, but she has dabbled in climbing, kayaking, road cycling, and the occasional team sport. She likes to give back to the outdoor community through multiple trail building and maintenance projects in and around Calgary.
