It Couple

Jennifer and Keith

March 17th, 2016

The first thing you’ll notice about Jennifer Matos and Keith Holmes II is that they make a drop dead gorgeous couple. Both professional fitness instructors at the lake shore YMCA in Austin (Jenn is also weeks away from obtaining her cosmetology license), these two make a living inspiring other Austinites to look and feel their best. And the next thing you’ll see is how they’re looking at each other — the longtime couple (six years and counting!) are still very much in love. There’s a tangible warmth when you’re around them, and they have the delightful habit of making each other smile almost constantly. The last thing you’ll notice about Jennifer and Keith is that they’re using sign language — because being deaf is only one of the incredible things this very cool couple has in common.

  7. What a great couple. I love that they shared that they had ups & downs in the beginning and they’ve grown together. That is ultimately the hardest part of starting a relationship…
