April Athlete of the Month - Jennifer Helmer!Apr 19, 2022
Powerlifter Jennifer Helmer is crushing it.
Last month, she hit a platform PR on squat and an all time PR on deadlift during a powerlifting competition.
This meet stands out as one of Jennifer’s proudest fitness accomplishments because she shared it with her daughter, a freshman studying architecture at KSU.
“Seeing my daughter compete in her first powerlifting competition and getting all time PRs on all her lifts was a very proud moment that I was glad we got to share,” she says.
In addition to lifting weights, Jennifer also enjoys paddle boarding, hiking and competing in endurance events during the summer.
“I’ve done many triathlons, obstacle races, runs and bike rides,” she says. “I am currently training for a triathlon and have a goal to compete in an Olympic distance.”
At the age of 39, she exercises to reap the health benefits.
“I love the way it makes me feel,” she says. “I have become a stronger, more independent woman.”
We love her competitive spirit and her drive to push herself.
