Wabash CrossFit gym under new ownership

Jenna Hovermale, the new owner of Wabash CrossFit, believes that this new venture is a way for her and her family to help the community accomplish overall health.

“For us, Wabash CrossFit is more of a community, and we took it on more as a ‘let’s see what we can do for the community and for the gym members,’ rather than something that we need in order to support ourselves,” she told The Paper of Wabash County.

Jenna is originally from Arizona, and moved to Indianapolis in 2011 to work for the National FFA Organization after being an agriculture teacher for some time.

She met her now husband, Mark, while living in Indianapolis and together they discovered the world of CrossFit.
