Heather LaRose

Owner/USA Boxing Certified Coach

Heather is a coach and co-owner at St Johns Boxing. As someone with a penchant for physical expression, she has enjoyed a varied athletic background over the course of her life.  While she gained a lot through team sports and more traditional gym workouts, she found boxing to be the thing that “hit just right”. Heather discovered boxing in 2017 when she needed an effective way to deal with stress while getting her Master’s degree in Architecture. She found boxing to be a great way to stay fit and deal with stress and it soon became a daily activity.

Heather is a body positive and friendly trainer who works with all ability levels to help develop confidence, fitness, and skills.

Jennifer Rousseau

USA Boxing Certified Coach
ACE Certified Personal Trainer

Jennifer takes a thoughtful and methodical approach to training, aiming to get people out of their heads and into their bodies while exercising. She drills form and movement until they become reflexive so students are able to conserve brain power for strategy and defense. She also enjoys finding strength exercises that are analogous to or compliment movements utilized in boxing. This helps build power, improve balance, and hone skills.  Her favorite part of the job is continual learning. She finds reward in learning new things, sharing information, and watching students catch on and get better and better every week. Outside of boxing Jennifer is a scientist by trade, which lends to her methodical approach to teaching. In her free time she enjoys reading, cooking, strength training, knitting, “collecting weird old crap”, learning new things, and parenting two squirrelly kids.
