Over the past few years I have had 2 kids and gained way too many pounds. With a demanding work schedule, and two kids under three I never seemed to have enough energy or time to workout and when I did, I did not see results. I didn’t know how to make the changes necessary for my new lifestyle. I started my journey with Energia in August 2014 by taking the $5 Sunday spin class with Jen once a week and loved it! Secretely I wanted to do more, but I was unsure about being able to juggle anything more or making a commitment but my old clothes were folded away high up in my closet or squeezed in a corner of my closet taking valuable space, it was time to get rid of them or FIT Into them once again. Jen approached me excitedly after a class one day and asked about my story, she then suggested she train me. It was as if I was waiting for it, because I felt a sigh of relief, she cared SO Much about me and my success, she was positive and energetic and routed for me and told me it was doable that it was hard to say no!
When I first started, my goal was to run my very first 5k, but how could I if I couldn’t run more than 3 minutes before being out of breath! How did I get so out of shape?! Jen encouraged me to sign up for a 5k a couple of weeks in to our training and despite my initial reservations, in a matter of 5 weeks I ran my first 5k WITHOUT stopping once! Jen didn’t stop there, she has exposed me to various classes such as TRX, Bootcamp, HIIT, etc and monitors my daily diet and suggests recipes and alternatives! Over the past 10 weeks, Jen has completely changed my life! She has changed my eating and exercise routine to understand how much fat, sugar and sodium and calories I am consuming and has taught me how to properly and safely do exercises and pushes me to do more!
Since I started training with her 3.5 months ago, Jen has helped me lose 18 lbs and finally fit into my old clothes. She has given me the confidence and drive to know that I can push even further. She has provided me with the tools and techniques to be successful at this, and make this my new way of life. I strongly recommend Jen (JUST DON’T TAKE MY Personal training time slot!)
