Coach Vanessa Hohenwarter (Coach V), a high school varsity tri-athlete in soccer, track and softball, wanted to try new sports in college so she played volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee, flag football and joined the crew team. It was on the crew team that she met her now-husband and, upon graduation, the two of them moved to the Washington, DC area to pursue their careers.
Of course, Vanessa’s love of athletics and fitness moved with her. Locally, she has played recreational sports such as dodgeball, flag football, soccer, softball and volleyball and has participated in numerous triathlons and running races. Vanessa wanted to channel her passion for health and fitness and her desire to help others embrace active lifestyles into a career. So she became a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Trainer and opened 703Fitness - a personal training studio based out of her residence in Fairfax, VA where she helps clients of all ages achieve their fitness goals. She is also a Group Fitness Specialist, Women's Fitness Specialist, Senior Fitness Specialist and Youth Fitness Specialist. She additionally coaches several of her children's youth sports teams.
In Vanessa's first season as a Coach with RunFit Kidz, she and her husband found out she was pregnant... with twins! Fast forward a few blurry years later and those twins are now 8 and have a 6 year-old brother and a 5 year-old sister. As Vanessa's "Quad Squad" is all in elementary school, Vanessa is overjoyed to be coaching the RunFit Kidz program at their school!
