It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since the world was hit with the COVID pandemic. We’ve been working from home, getting together with friends and family via Zoom and limiting our time gathering socially. If you are like most, you have experienced that during all this uncertainty, it’s been difficult to maintain habits and stick to an actual routine. Yet, for many of us, success is most often achieved when we create healthy and successful habits. So just how do we do that when we are still in the midst of a pandemic? Let 7B Women help you!

Join them for a virtual luncheon on Tuesday, Feb. 16, at noon featuring the husband-and-wife team of Kenny and Jenn Markwardt, owners of Sandpoint Strength, formerly CrossFit.

Kenny is a Two Brain business mentor and a certified strength and conditioning coach while Jenn is a Precision Nutrition certified coach. Together they have taken their passions and impacted countless lives over the years.

“One’s mindset, routine and environment are crucial in setting and reaching goals,” said Jenn, adding that this will be the primary focus of their presentation.

For Kenny, he has had a passion for fitness since he was 16 years of age.

“Over the years, fitness took on many forms for me. I started out with body composition training, spent nearly a decade in combat sports, found the functional fitness craze and eventually made my way to CrossFit,” he said. “Regardless of the execution, the theme stayed the same — if you put in the work, you could change your body and change your life.”

Jenn has the same passion when it comes to nutrition, making them a perfect match both personally and professionally. She has been instrumental in the business’s success and in helping others become healthy and fit.

“Jenn and Kenny have presented to our group in the past, and they are always a big hit,
 said 7B Women board member Gina Hall.
