Jessica Hammer has a talent for business and a love of coaching. Now she’s combining the two loves — and getting a little bit of help from her education at KU Edwards.

Hammer, a senior majoring in exercise science, last year opened a “treadmill studio” called KC Endurance with her husband, Jeremy. The business is located in the Waldo neighborhood of Kansas City, Mo.

“It’s like a spinning class, only with treadmills,” she said. “It’s the first one in Kansas City.”
