Topics Discussed in This Episode:

  • What inspired Jenny to become a body transformation coach
  • How Jenny battled with an eating disorder and how her miscarriages led her to take a deeper look into her hormone health
  • What Jenny’s lifestyle looked like before and after her miscarriages
  • Jenny’s role as the President of STRONG Fitness Magazine and how her life has shifted since taking on that role


Key Takeaways:

  • Doing cardio workouts twice a day is just training your body to do more to lose fat. But it can damage your metabolism especially if you’re not fueling your body properly.
  • Eating right is 90% of the battle when you’re trying to lose body fat. You have to know how much you’re eating.
  • Rest days between the days you’re weight training are when your body makes those changes.


Action Steps:

  • Focus on strength instead of weight loss.
  • Learn to fill your body with the right nutrients, and don’t be afraid of food and calories.
  • When it comes to weight training, train smarter, not harder.
  • If you’re new to weight lifting, try it three times a week. Then, bump it up to four times a week.


Jenny said:

“I look at those experiences [of miscarraige] now as a blessing, because it did allow me to dig deeper into my own health.”


“One of our Strong Girl’s methods is ‘aspire to inspire’ — sharing your journey because you never know who you’re going to inspire when you share your journey.”
