Verve Health & Fitness has recently hired a new trainer to fill out our already strong roster of personal trainers. We want to welcome Jackie O’Neill, NASM-CPT.
Jackie has been personal trainer since 2012, since she was an undergraduate in Kinesiology at the University of Illinois. She joins Verve while currently studying for her doctorate in Physical Therapy at George Washington University.
“My goal was always to go to Physical Therapy school, but I didn't want to wait until graduation to begin working with people on overcoming barriers.” Jackie remarked in a recent interview for this post. “[While at undergrad] I became certified as a personal trainer and found that I didn't want to give it up, even after starting graduate school.”
“I love working with clients that are open-minded and ambitious about achieving their fitness goals,” she added. “I love being a source of motivation for people when they need it.”
A multi-sport competitive athlete growing, she has become an avid cyclist, recently completing an 800-mile bike tour of the Northeastern United States. “I love getting out on my bike whenever I can—especially on a nice, sunny day—and just making up a route as I go until I decide it's time to turn around and go back.”
Jackie plans on using this experience at Verve to grow as a trainer and learn new styles of personal training. “The trainers at Verve are so knowledgeable, experienced and friendly that I am really looking forward to learning a lot from them. I's always fun to check out what each other is doing and find ways to incorporate something that you like or find interesting into your own style.”
If you see Jackie in the hall or working with a client in the gym, be sure to give her a quick “hello!” and welcome her to Verve.

Some site changes this week….
- Whiteboard photos. Starting this week, we’ll be moving the WOD Results to the primary WOD page. The reasons are because they were starting to overwhelm the design of the site, weren’t providing any additional benefit by being posted in a different place as the workout itself and made it more difficult in the end to find the workout and the results.You’ll start seeing some of the older posts disappear as I migrate the whiteboard photos to the original posting.
- Navigation. “Photos & WOD Results” is now just “Photos.” The WOD Results group will now live under the WOD. The photos of the big scoreboard will remain as a separate group underneath the WOD.
That’s it. Good luck with the 13.3 workout, everyone.
