That’s me… Jen Wilson
I AM | Jen Wilson, movement & health rebel here to help women over 40 move and feel better in their body.
You feel old in your body before your time?
Do you creak and groan every time you get up out the chair?
Did you say to yourself last week, on Monday I will make a start… but have been saying that for months (maybe even years)?!
Have you lost your motivation to look after yourself and are feeling a bit overwhelmed at the thought of starting?
My top advice, start exactly where you are today with the only expectation that you will do your best and work with each day as it presents itself to you.
I am an absolute geek (always learning) and a little bit obsessed when it comes to finding ways in helping you look after your body in a way that works for you – you don’t like it, we don’t do it .
I am top heavy on the qualifications… From a BSc in sport and exercise science, Pilates, Yoga, Meditation, Massage, Personal Trainer, Barefoot specialist, Functional Movement Coach, nutrition coach, NLP Master practitioner, Reiki, blah, blah, blah… I can send you my CV if you want the full list.
Random Facts About Me
I drink a shit tonne of tea (mostly herbal blends I make myself).
I have been sober since Sept 2014 – not because of addiction, but a personal decision that my partying way’s were no longer serving me or my life’s purpose
You would see me get excited when I see animals, especially cows & puppies
Camping and paddle boarding are favourite non work activities
Sometimes I have crisps for dinner because I just can’t be bothered cooking
I live with a condition they call Crohn’s
I work with women in online live classes, on demand classes, 1:1 online or in person at my home studio in Springburn, Glasgow.
In my recent previous life was a National Fitness Presenter and Master Trainer (until I had to retire due to the Crohn’s )
Before I worked in health & fitness, I worked in the travel industry and have lived in Greece (Kos), Gran Canaria and Australia.
I love to hug a tree, get outside when I can, do witchy/hippie type activities, and have an allotment where I try to grow some of my own food.
Your body isn’t meant to ache, your joints and muscles are not meant to feel sticky and tight. Your body is meant to move with ease, good posture helps you stand tall. I use Pilates, Yoga, Functional Movement, Barefoot training, Massage and many more tricks to help you.
Be kind, be curious.
Move your body every single day.
Create a routine that gives YOU some me time.
Listen to your body and do what feels good in it.
I AM Jen Wilson.
