Jeff Jensen is an ISSA Certified Fitness Trainer who joined the SST team early in 2003. He comes to us from an extensive background in football, both as a player (when he was much younger!) and as a coach. Jeff has been involved with coaching linebackers, special teams, and strength & conditioning for numerous organizations including the Mississauga Football League, Clarkson High School, and 7 years with the Mississauga Warriors of the Ontario Varsity Football League. Coach J is an air traffic controller who joined SST for an opportunity to work with hungry young athletes. Jeff was a multi-sport athlete (football, hockey, basketball, volleyball, competitive swimming…) who, more than 20 years ago, realized that work in the weightroom translated positively to the field, court, ice, and pool. Jeff is still involved in many of these sports today, playing men’s league hockey, mixed league volleyball, filling in at the occasional touch football game with some of the guys from the airport, and there’s always been the workouts. Coach J’s specialty is plyometrics – watch for his articles on that subject elsewhere on the SST website.
Jeff’s job as an air traffic controller has allowed him the opportunity to take advantage of a number of courses designed to teach controllers to become instructors. This makes Coach J a patient teacher of new skills, but don’t light him off, he’s got a bark like a Marine Corps Drill Sergeant!
