Jen MacLean

After having H1N1 in the fall, Jen was looking for a supplement to help her meet the extensive demands of working full-time and training. Having heard positive things about 7SYSTEMS, and knowing several athletes on the 7SYSTEMS team, she decided to try it. Despite Jen’s daily exposure to germs and viruses at work,¬† she has been in perfect health since starting with 7SYSTEMS, and she couldn’t be happier with the effect that it has had on both her training and overall health.

Jen knows a lot about health.¬† After spending her high school years competing in multiple team sports, Jen went to Queen’s University, where she competed on the varsity cross-country and swim teams. It was during this time that she joined the triathlon club, and began to focus her athletic attention on triathlon. While in her third year at Queen’s, Jen accompanied a friend to a World University Games qualifying race, and ended up earning herself a spot. This first international exposure gained her entry to the National Triathlon Centre, where she remained¬† a resident athlete from 2000-2004. During this time she raced ITU events around the world, with results including 3rd place at Canadian Elite Nationals, 1st at University Championships, and ITU finishes as high as 8th. Jen twice qualified to represent Canada at Elite U23 World Championships, and was later a member of the Canadian National Development Team. After taking five years off of racing triathlons to do her Master’s and start her career as a Pediatric Occupational Therapist, Jen has recently returned to triathlon, and is training with Human Powered Racing in Victoria BC.
