Jenn Langen Finds Community Through Movement

California native and future neuroscience grad student, Jenn Langen rediscovers movement and the power of community through climbing. On a quest to find a form of exercise that could fill the void of a former competitive swimming career, Jenn began climbing and tracking her progress on her YouTube Channel, "Jenn Sends", and quickly realised the impact she had made in sharing her journey with her viewers.

Jenn also found that the skills she learnt from climbing translate to other areas of her life—from giving her the confidence to show off her strength, problem-solve quickly and take on obstacles with a calm approach. Although climbing outside and in gyms is on hold right now, Jenn has found ways to keep up the momentum by building her climbing wall at home and encouraging her community to find other ways to move. Climbing has shown her that trying a new sport can not only be a vehicle for movement and strength, but it can also help build a strong community.
