More about Jen
Jen Hamilton has been a dynamic and compelling leader in the fitness industry for over 18 years. The founder of Cardio-Core Bootcamp, Oxygen is not her first franchise.
When the opportunity to help build the Bootcamp Program at Oxygen Yoga & Fitness was presented to her, she saw the benefits that of fusing yoga and fitness combined with FAR infrared heat.
Jen’s dynamic and vibrant personality continue to be the driving force behind the brands culture, strength and continued growth. Her innovation and inventive style created the yoga fusion model that has set Oxygen Yoga & Fitness apart as the industry leader it is today.
The second location of Oxygen Yoga & Fitness, or the first franchise location opened in March of 2012. Since then, Oxygen Yoga & Fitness has been steadily expanding and growing. There are currently over 80 locations sold across Canada.
Jen is dedicated to helping our members make lifestyle changes to achieve better health, wellness and personal growth. Many new members come to Oxygen with low confidence and bloom with self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment through their practice. Other members come for rehabilitation, have arthritis, or are recovering from an accident and find relief in the Far Infrared therapeutic environment. Members often share their success stories of how they have evolved and found their sense of self through their practice.
Jen’s passion is to help her members achieve overall balance and a healthier lifestyle.
When people attend the yoga and fitness fusion sessions, they leave feeling both detoxified and energized. The studios have created positive changes in many people’s lives through the practice, the mantras, and the overall energy that is the Oxygen Yoga & Fitness culture.
