Nathan and Jenni Oates: Exercise/Fitness

Nathan & Jenni’s passion for overall health stems from their experiences coaching, personal training, and years devoted to a variety of sports, including competing at the Division I level of collegiate athletics. Their expertise is fueled by a deep desire to show others how to develop a lifestyle of fitness, as opposed to simply doing a workout. Their total motivation for BURSTClub™ was deeply personal and absolutely essential. Their frustration with fad diets and workouts that ended 30-60 days after they started, as well as some health issues, led them to research their options. The unexpected, life-altering loss of their number 3 child further solidified their quest for efficiency. Their son’s short time with their family taught them a powerful truth – one minute matters and can have lasting impact. For years the number 3 represented pain and loss to Nathan and Jenni. Now it represents life and hope – life lived maximizing the moments and hopes that health and fitness don’t have to be so all-consuming and complicated. You won’t find fads with Nathan and Jenni, only simple solutions for busy people that work as a lifestyle and redefine time.
