Meet Our Team


Brenna Fox

Hello friend!! :)

First of all, I'm really glad you're here, and I want you to know that if you need help with anything related to health or fitness, or just life, I am here for you; no strings attached! Serving others to the best of my ability is my number one focus- it just happens to be through the medium of health.

Know how valuable you are, AS you are.

I was born and raised in Alaska and, yes, I've hit a moose with my car.

I am the oldest of six kids- my mom homeschooled us, we lived all over the state, and it was a blast. My first interest in fitness was at the age of 14 when I took up running (and had to do so at -40*F sometimes!)

After high school I earned my associates in culinary arts.

It was a TON of fun, I would totally do it again just for kicks.

I worked in restaurants and as a bartender for a few years to pay for a bachelor's degree in Business Management. Upon graduation, I commissioned into the United States Marine Corps. While in the service, I dealt with severe alcoholism, which eventually led to my getting out, but also (praise God!), to my sobriety.

(Also happy to chat about this if you or a loved one are struggling!)

My husband, Seth, is also a Marine and we live in south Texas for the time being. I started this and a few other companies, and fell absolutely in love with the challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship. (For more background on how this company came to be, please read the About page! It's a great story.)

Today my training consists mainly of running, circuit training and weight lifting, although that has slowed down a bit recently, as we are expecting Baby Fox in April 2022!!

For many years I did not use my culinary degree, but recently I am so excited to say that we have been rolling out a killer recipe database for the member site and I am LOVING revisiting this level of creativity.

I did go back to school in 2020 and earned my MBA. Of course, I also have my ACE personal training certification, as well as my strength and condition and pre and post partum certifications. I've been in the health and fitness industry for over 10 years; in that time I have helped thousands of people permanently and (somewhat) painlessly change their lives, and I continue to love every single minute of it.

Team Victoriam is grateful you're here; we hope you stick around and find what you came for, and even more! Always remember that you are worth the work, and worthy of the results.


Books & Accounting

Caitlin Engwis 


My name is Caitlin & I’m the financial guru in the team! I have a degree in accounting and like to be the person behind the scenes crunching numbers.

I met Brenna in 2010 in small town Alaska and we instantly hit it off! In 2020 Brenna asked if I wanted to take over the books and of course I accepted! Working for someone I respect and someone who truly loves helping others is a real treat.


Elite Trainer & Nutrition Expert

Samantha Pennell

"Without proper nutrition, exercise is just added stress to your body."

Hi! My name is Samantha Pennell, aspiring nutrition expert. I am not there yet, but hope to be someday.

I was also born and raised in Alaska, and am raising my own family here. My husband and I have three kiddos, two of them being twins! Trust me, I am familiar with the challenges that so many of you are facing, and I'm here to support you.

I stumbled across my love for this lifestyle by navigating my own life struggles. You know: babies, lack of sleep, stress, work, anxiety, marriage, hormones. You name it, I was battling it. That is- until I decided that I was going to get out of my own way. Give up my excuses. Work on myself! I decide life was too short to not feel comfortable in my own skin, or wake up with the energy to face the day and run with my kids.

Since then I have obtained my personal training certification, directed a medical fitness program, engineered a nutrition protocol with a team of well-established doctors and completed training with Rejuv Medical, on of America's premier regenerative medicine facilities.

Brenna and I connected a year ago, through a shared love of 1stPhorm actually, and immediately realized how much value we could create if we worked together. In addition to being involved in daily accountability with our members, I provide high level nutrition programming and resources.

For so many, tracking macros alone is not enough. Very often there are underlying hormone, food intolerance or deficiency factors that have gone unaddressed for years. I help you to focus on the root of the issue and finally find the results you have worked so hard for. Women's health, specifically, is my specialty.

None of that really matters though. What DOES matter is that you're here. I would like to start by saying thank you for trusting us with your health. Please know that it is our pleasure to educate you and cheer you on throughout this journey.

No question is dumb, so ask away!

We aren't quite mind readers, but we're getting pretty close :)

Welcome aboard! You belong here.


Graphic Design & Marketing 


Hi there!

I'm Jen, and I do the artsy stuff around here. I have a degree in studio art, and many years of experience in marketing.

Earlier this year, I decided to take the leap and try my hand at freelance marketing and graphic design work. My intense planner brain was ringing every alarm to warm me of the risks of this, but a little voice in the back said, "DO IT!" So, in a very uncharacteristically bold fashion, I did.

Turns out being bold paid off; a few months into the unknown Brenna reached out to me. I met Brenna about 10 years ago when we were both still living in Alaska. She brought banana bread to a party, and I instantly loved her. Brenna is the type of person that your mom would meet and say "what a great influence that Brenna girl is." And she would be right. It's such a joy to be in her circle again, and to give her messages of positivity for you a bit of flair.

See you on Instagram!
