WELCOME WEDNESDAY – JENA – YOU AIN’T YOUR WEIGHT
Bombarded with societies pressure and idealizations, Jenna – the boss babe behind You Ain’t Your Weight is a complete breathe of fresh air. She coaches women on how to ditch the diet and love themselves again!
WHAT DO YOU MAKE/SELL? TELL US ABOUT YO’ SELF:
I coach women on how to ditch the diet in order to love food, their bodies and their lives again. I am hosting a summit coming up on September 19th where 21 body image experts will share how they got comfortable in their own skin and what we could do today to love our bodies more. Sign up for this summit can be found on my website.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD YOUR BUSINESS?
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
I was selling prepackaged workout programs that I had been doing for ten years and that never made me happy and I stopped one day and thought… what am I doing? Why would I push this way of being “healthy” and “fit” on others when it has only brought me pain and discontent. I then started coaching myself on how to eat intuitively and fall back in love with myself.
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOUR WORK?
My past inspires me because I know what a difference ditching the diet can make in your life. It affects way more than your weight and what you eat. It seeps into how you feel about yourself, your relationships, almost everything.
WHAT DO YOU DREAM FOR YOUR BUSINESS IN THE FUTURE?
I dream to help women all over the world with one on one coaching, an online program and group programs that change the way women see themselves.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM AND WHY?
I love Instagram because images can send such a strong message in such a short time.
HOW DO YOU PICK YOURSELF UP WHEN THINGS GO WRONG?
In business I have decided that I will not quit. Of course there will be failures and learning curves but if you don’t give up then there’s no choice but to get where you want to go eventually.
WHAT’S ONE THING NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT YOU? GIVE US AN INTERESTING FACT!
I am also an elementary school teacher and a personal trainer at Anytime Fitness in Okotoks, I am very busy J
