Jenn Pattee Bio
Jennifer Pattee and Basic Training
Jennifer Pattee is a competitive runner, outdoor fitness maven, and relentless pursuer of playtime.
Recently voted “Best Personal Trainer in SF” by the SF Weekly and “Best Bootcamp in SF” by the San Francisco Bay Guardian, this Lululemon ambassador alum and Athleta-sponsored athlete is on a mission to make working out something that everybody looks forward to.
She founded San Francisco’s Basic Training in 2008 to fill the void for others like her: those who join an outdoor training program with modest goals only to discover their innate athletic ability. For her, that modest goal was weight loss (fifteen pounds) but it soon turned into marathons, 50Ks, 50-mile ultramarathons, Ironman relays, and annual races down (and up and down and up) Marin’s famously grueling Dipsea trail. Along the way, Jenn found her passion, her strength and her dream job.
Today, she and her team of instructors lead groups of dedicated amateur athletes off the beaten path, with scenic trail runs and innovative cross-training routines designed to increase endurance, flexibility, core strength and speed.
