Jennie has exercised regularly since she was 18 years old. She was always known by her friends and family as a healthy and fit person, exercising 5-6 days per week and eating lots of fruits and veggies. However, she never did weight training.
Jennie and her husband Kevin welcomed their first child, a boy named Winston, into their family last spring. Jennie gained a healthy 40 pounds during her pregnancy. Knowing that Jennie would want to get back into shape after the pregnancy, her mother Anne gave her a personal training package as a gift. Jennie began working with Brenna Tomlinson, a personal trainer at Milestone.
Jennie met with Brenna twice a week to establish new dietary habits, to weigh-in regularly, and to fine-tune a personalized cardio and strength training program. Working with Brenna and adding strength training into her fitness regimen for the first time ever, Jennie lost 40 pounds within the first 4-5 months. After month 8 she had lost a total of 65 pounds! That is 25 pounds lower than her pre-pregnancy weight!
Jennie is consistent in her training. She does 30-55 minutes of cardio five to six days a week. She also cooks and eats healthy by avoiding white flour, high fat and high sodium foods and includes high protein, low fat and high fiber foods as well as drinking 80oz of water daily. Jennie also spaces out her meals to avoid storing calories and slowing metabolism. Jennie and Brenna continue to meet at the gym once a week for weight training and to track the dietary habits and cardio that Jennie does on her own. Congratulations, Jennie, on all your hard work!
