Meet Our Team

Athena's mission is to redefine female-focused fitness and build community through education about what it means to love our bodies and live our best lives. Our team is essential to that mission, bringing passion, and individual experience to every moment.

Jessica Engbers

Jessica moved to Olympia in the summer of 2019 and quickly fell in love with the Pacific Northwest. As someone who moved quite a bit throughout her life, she knew that a key component to making a new place a home is through finding a community. Jessica soon found her way to Athena and it has deeply enriched her life.

With a background in psychology and a passion for people, becoming a Les Mills instructor sounded like the perfect fit. She loves the concept of helping people pursue their own goals and in doing so feel their best physically, mentally and emotionally. Jessica is incredibly thankful for the opportunity to connect with her community in a new way through coaching.

When Jessica is not at Athena, you can find her serving with her husband at their local church or somewhere else outside in Olympia with her husband Jeremy, their dog Roxie and at least one of their friends. She is happiest by the ocean with lots of snacks, a cold drink and the company of as many of her family and friends as possible!

She is passionate about people pursuing their best lives.

She is wildly happy when she’s on a boat with the wind in her hair.

She feels most confident laughing with her family and friends.

She is terrified of being separated from all the ones she loves and snakes.

She never grows old of pizza, Friends and Taylor Swift.

She is inspired by her two grandmothers: Nanny and Mammaw.
