Shana Verstegen’s passion for health and fitness developed at a young age, when her parents gave her a YMCA catalog of activities and asked her to check off her favorites. Now a world champion lumberjack athlete, fitness competitor, gymnast, pole vaulter and competitive runner, Shana’s passion continues to grow. Born and raised in Wisconsin, she now works as the fitness director for Supreme Health and Fitness in Madison, where she helps clients one on one and through group exercise. Her journey has taken her through fitness competitions including Fitness America and Ms. Fitness to modeling gigs for Muscle and Fitness, Flex and Oxygen magazines. She has also been featured on ESPN, ABC Wide World of Sports and the Outdoor Life Network for her success as a three-time world champion women’s professional log roller and boom runner. Shana serves as an advocate for finding a cure to Huntington’s disease, which her mother lived with for many years.
