I’ve Been Where You Are And Know How Frustrating It Is To Have So Little Energy And Have So Little Success At Changing Things For The Better
I’m different than most nutrition and fitness coaches because I work to help you make nutrition and fitness a lifestyle, not a quick-fix, even for busy people — like you — who feel like they don’t have the time or energy to focus on themselves. In fact, I’m much like you – let me explain:
Once upon a time, not so very long ago, I was in a VERY different career.
I traveled almost every week for work. I made a lot of money, but the “cost” on a human level was very high.
High stress, high blood pressure, high anxiety. I could go on, but I think you get the point.
I hardly slept. It was rare for me to get even more than 5-6 hours of sleep a night because I’d wake up in the middle of almost every night in a panic, unable to fall back to sleep.
My workouts were falling apart. I wasn’t doing enough of the things I loved, like mountain biking and CrossFit.
I hurt. In every way.
But I came to the realization that something had to change.
I had to take a step back.
I had to shift the focus to myself.
I prioritized sleep and recovery, sometimes opting to skip a workout if I just wasn’t feeling it. What a change in priorities, right?
I fueled my body with plenty of food, increasing my fat intake to support my hormonal health.
I meditated more often (daily.) I slept. I got massages. I recovered.
Wow. So different from the “go hard or go home” mentality of young male studs with big biceps and a big Instagram following.
By focusing my attention on myself, I gained more energy to focus on other people in my life. This helped me see improvement in my life and better help others. Crazy how that works, right?
I didn’t succeed until I focused on the things that really worked, which are the BASICS. When I focused on the basics and keeping it simple, I built the body and life that I needed in order to succeed in the other parts of my life, and I can help do the same thing for you.
I like to say that “Simple steps bring you greater success.”
"Coach Jen helped me manage my nutrition and training in a way that took the guesswork off my busy #weekendwarrior plate. I didn't have to decide how and when to eat, I didn't have to design or adjust training plans to fit an ever-changing schedule, and she lay down the law on recovery, sleep, and stress management to ensure I was making the most of the program. Thanks, Jen!"
"I lost the weight I wanted to, aced my fitness test for the military and felt amazing. Can’t recommend Jen’s support enough."
"I am starting to see my core! I feel stronger during climbing, biking, etc. I feel healthier and I'm down 2 pant sizes in about 8 months"
"Jen's reputation spread across our gym quickly, and after one consultation with her, I knew I would like her approach and professionalism. Absolutely give a Jen a try. You will be amazed by what you learn even though you may think you have heard it all. She roots for you and really wants you to be able to LEARN HOW to keep consistent on your own. Her ideas, her communication to all her clients as a group - she creates a tribe that roots for each other. Not many other plans or coaches do that. "
"It is the best program and decision we have made, well ever. I lost 10" and toned up, and I [now] understand that my body doesn’t require lots of food for energy. Thank you so much, Jen! We feel so much better!"
"I received a high level of care I didn't expect from a remote coach. If you're considering a coach, you already know you want a change. ACTION is required for a result. My time with Jen has been more beneficial than I can relay. I wanted to achieve certain goals for years with very little progress; she helped to push me in doing the hard stuff, celebrated the wins, & called me out when I was playing small. If you're holding back, you're holding your potential self back, I did this for years. It's up to you."
"My greatest success was refocusing my mind set on consistency and the process, versus the little things like the scale. Jen did a great job refocusing me. It isn't about the scale, it isn't about being perfect. Jen has been amazing to work with. I cannot thank her enough for the patience and guidance she has given me."
“This whole journey [is] to change the way I view food and still enjoy eating what I want because that’s the whole point! I’ve learned the best way to fuel my body to feel my best and perform at 100%. I’ve PR’d every lift and consistently move faster with body weight movements. So here’s to getting stronger, and leaner, and a HUGE thank you to Jen [who] has been unbelievably awesome and supportive.”
"They did biometric screening at work and all my numbers are in the desirable range and my overall cholesterol is almost 30 points lower."
"I just wanted to share with you how much my mindset has shifted... I felt like a badass in the gym. And I am still enjoying foods I love!"
