Good morning Jennifer,
Before Anne and I began this journey with you, we did not have the best of diets. You could fit most of our fruits and vegetables in those little drawers in the refrigerator. Now that we have embraced your philosophy of a more plant based diet, things have changed in a big way. When I came home from the grocery store yesterday, I wanted to show you how much things have changed, so I took this photo. This is a typical 3 day supply of fruits and vegetables for us. Along with our fitness training, this is why we are so much healthier. This is why we are combined over 100 lbs down. This is why I am no longer “managing” my diabetes. Instead, I am on the verge of reversing my diabetes. These are just some of the thoughts this photo gave me. Anne and I have come so far, but like you say “we are just getting started”. We take great comfort knowing that you will be there with us every step of the way.
Leah joined Jen Allan Fitness in May 2014 at a Beginner Boot Camp at the park. At the time, she was very sedentary, overweight, not eating the healthiest, and very unhappy with her body image and lack of energy. Now, Leah is 40 pounds lighter and is a healthy weight, BMI, and body fat %! She is a true inspiration to everyone around her for her hard work, discipline, and how she committed to changing her life! Way to go Leah and so proud of you!! Read her story below!
At the start of the year, I joined one of Jen’s group classes. It was the best fitness decision I ever made. From the very first class, it was far superior to even one-on-one personal trainer sessions I had in the past. She made me like exercising for the first time in my life! Her classes are never the same and she’s constantly switching things up so it’s never boring.
Jen not only has the expert level knowledge of her field, she has what I think is the X factor among truly gifted personal trainer and fitness professionals: caring for your body as much as you do. And because she truly cares it means she optimizes each exercise movement for your body without injury, pushing you when she expertly deems you can handle it and stopping you when you’re not quite ready. Either way, she makes you feel encouraged to keep trying. I recommend her to anyone at any level of fitness. Her skills are that dynamic and she is that good! – Julie Jee, Pleasanton CA
