I’m Jen. I’m a woman over 50, cruising toward 60, a suicide survivor, someone who has struggled with her weight since at least age 8, a joint replacement patient with a chronic knee injury, an animal rescuer, a wee bit of a rebel, and someone who embraces the concept that we need to focus on all the things that we can do instead of our limitations. My mantra is ONWARD! I don’t sugar coat, I’m an optimist and a realist. I tend to keep things simple. Our health is our greatest asset and I’m passionate about doing all I can to help myself and others to lead their healthiest and happiest lives.
I’m a certified personal trainer and health coach in Franklin (Simpson County) Kentucky, but I work with individuals who do not live in my immediate area through the beauty of technology. I’m adept at online coaching and training. I’m no-nonsense and I believe that if we aren’t having fun, we aren’t doing it right.
I believe in creating a lifestyle way of eating and moving that works for us as individuals. This involves creating new habits and kicking others to the curb. We are our habits. Fad diets, restricting entire food groups and pushing our bodies to the extreme in the short term will not benefit us in the long term. To me, something doesn’t “work” if we cannot sustain it and cannot be consistent.
There are things in life that we cannot control, such as aging, but there are so many things that we can. That attitude and belief is at the core of my Coaching. I strive to embrace the Positive, kick the Negative to the curb and do what I can to make a difference.
Healthier, Happier and Stronger in body, mind and spirit – let’s Get After It shall we?
