TEAM STRONG GIRLS Success Story – Chelsea C.

More than 1 year ago, Chelsea C. (age 16 at the time) and her mom came to looking to tighten up and create some structure with their diet and exercise regimen. Even with the extremely busy schedule of a high school student, the youngest of all of my STRONG GIRLS lost an incredible 28 lbs with me in just under 4 months including 5 inches off of her waist, 3 inches off of her waist, 9 inches off of her thighs, and 4 inches off of her arms. To this day, Chelsea’s transformation is one that I am not only extremely proud of but also holds a special place in my heart. She was one of my very original STRONG GIRLS and her story is such an inspiration because she made no excuses and just motored through her program. I am so, so, so proud of Chelsea! YOUNGEST STRONG GIRL!  

TEAM STRONG GIRLS Success Story – Wendy D.

TEAM STRONG GIRLS Success Story Wendy came to me a little more than 1 year ago looking to lean out and lose a little bit of weight. Having tried a number of different diets, we put together a program that was more realistic for her but was also aligned with her goals and we far exceeded what she was originally seeking. With her first goal of a lean, tight physique completed late last year this STRONG GIRL asked me my thoughts on competing in a Fitness Show and I said…absolutely!!! It was something Wendy set forth as a personal challenge tto try, at least, once in her lifetime. After a few months of “filling in the gaps” on her 6’1 frame with a building phase, Wendy rocked the stage last weekend at the IDFA Championships where I was shouting at the top of my lungs along with her STRONG SISTERS in the stands!!! Before her show and after trying on her The Crystal Suit contest bikini for the first time, Wendy said to me, “Thank …

TEAM STRONG GIRLS Success Story – Darcy F.

I am overjoyed to share the very inspirational success story of Darcy F. courtesy of TEAM STRONG GIRLS’ Coach Kim. Congratulations to the both of them for an excellent job!  ====================== I am so proud to launch my first STRONG GIRL Success Story as a photo shoot. Darcy F. and I were having a conversation late last year and she asked me if it was possible have a killer bikini body by the summer time in which I responded – UMM YA!!!! Darcy started with me around the time I was appointed as a STRONG GIRLS Coach eager to work with me as my first client and this STRONG MOM executed her program perfectly dropping more than 15 lbs and shredding over 5 inches from her hips and 4 inches around her waist! I would say she is more than Bikini Ready! Darcy says, “At 36 years old this is the best I’ve ever felt in my whole life! I’m stronger, leaner, healthier, and happier! The day of my photo shoot was one of the top …

TEAM STRONG ATHLETE Success Story – Tyler J.

Abs. Gotta love them. I had the pleasure of working with my dear friend Tyler J. over the last few months and am so proud of the work we’ve done. Tyler is a CrossFit athlete who originally came to me looking to put on muscle. He was eating excessive amounts of calories causing heavy bloating and just all around being uncomfortable. Muscle is a game of time. In fact, I can’t think of a process that requires more patience than muscle building. My work with Tyler was about pulling things back into a place where fitness was fun and also about learning rather than eating himself silly. A few months ago, his beautiful wife took up her hand in competing in her first Bikini show and Tyler transitioned from CrossFit to primarily Resistance Training so I took this as an opportune time to put together a strategy that did not have such a high energy expenditure by limiting his metabolic output…and lifting some really heavy weights. Based on the photos, I would say our time …

TEAM STRONG GIRLS Success Story – Colleen B.

TEAM STRONG GIRLS Success Story I’m very excited to share half of Colleen B’s journey who came to me last December looking to lean out and to also compete in her first Bikini contest so when I heard from her, I was beyond excited to get to work. I actually worked with Colleen a few years ago and always admired her physique because this STRONG MOM (yes MOM!) carries a lot of lean, sexy muscle. We are still in the process of getting her up on stage but we’re working through a nagging back issue which is preventing us from maximizing Squat and Deadlift movements but, nonetheless, that didn’t stop us from proceeding to get her contest ready because she looks drop dead gorgeous!!! We put together a strategy to bring up some key areas critical for the stage through a building stage of higher volume training for specific body parts and higher calories followed by a few weeks of reduced calories and higher metabolic output. The results thus far – JAW DROPPING GORGEOUS! Look …

TEAM STRONG GIRLS Success Story – Nicole B.

More than 1 year ago, Nicole B. came to me looking to lean out and maintain the muscle mass that she built up through her intense CrossFit training. In about 4 months this STRONG GIRL was posting new PRs, increased energy, leaned out immensely, and loved every single second of it! I love working with clients like Nicole because she is an absolute terror with the weights and I have often referred to her as my resident Wonder Woman or She-Hulk because…simply put…she like to life heavy sh*t. With this kind of fire burning inside her, it was only natural that she wanted to pursue something that was itching in the back of her mind for quite some time – COMPETING! I just love hearing this. This STRONG GIRL and I put together a strategy (Resistance Training, lots and lots and lots of food, and minimal cardio) to build up particular muscle groups to have her ready for Figure Category and I am so proud to say that with all of the work put in, …

TEAM STRONG GIRLS Success Story – Taryn R.

I had the pleasure of working with Taryn R over the last few months and, even better, had the opportunity to meet her just last week in the beautiful city of Victoria, BC to capture some images. She came to me as a full-time student finishing up her MBA looking to incorporate a training and nutrition strategy into her busy schedule. Fast forward to today and this STRONG GIRL has dropped 18 lbs along with shredding 5 inches around her belly button, 4 inches off of her thighs, and another 4 inches off of her hips. With her new lean and sexy physique, she has wrapped up her studies and has launched her own business as a Marketing Consultant! Taryn says, “This experience has beyond exceeded my expectations. I first started with Jenny because I wanted to lean out and ultimately lose some weight. However, my body has changed more than I ever could have imagined. My new physique is tight and lean and I love the muscle definition I have developed. To be perfectly …

TEAM STRONG GIRLS Success Story – Coraleigh J.

I’m so proud to have been a part of my client Coraleigh J’s transformation. She came to me almost 1 year ago looking for a nutrition strategy to help her lean out and to also fuel her intense CrossFit training. Hailing from the Seattle area, I was fortunate enough to meet her last year on a trip to the West Coast. We captured wonderful photos the first time around along and she showed me that she wasn’t just a gorgeous face but she was also a terror in the gym! When I suggested competing in an NPC Bikini show this STRONG GIRL was on board so we devised a longer term strategy to get her ready for her debut on the stage. Already in great shape when we started together, our total numbers were still awesome with 15 lbs lost along with dropping 4 inches off of her thighs, 3 inches around her waist, and 3 inches around her hips. More important than the numbers, this is one incredible transformation both from a physical standpoint …

TEAM STRONG GIRLS progress picture – Tamara L.

My client, Tamara L. (mother of 3, age 34) who works with me all the way from Alberta, came to me about 10 weeks ago to get into better shape, clean up her eating, and achieve some fat loss. By the looks of things, we’re just about there. She looks amazing and we’re both so happy with the results of her oh-so-sexy midsection! Tamara says, “Jenny I have been following the program and I have to say I’m very impressed by my progress and my abs. Even back in the day (before the kids) they never looked this good. Amazing!” By staying compliant with her nutrition program and crushing her workouts, this Supermom is showing that abs can happen even AFTER 3 babies!
