• ABOUT ME

    First and foremost, I'm passionate about good health and great aging.

     

    As a certified health coach and women's fitness specialist, I help women over 45 who are ready to prioritize their health, regain their energy and reclaim their figures so they can feel fabulous again! I've personally experienced many of the struggles and issues that most women experience with aging and menopause. Through my own life experiences, I discovered that you really can take control of your health again, even if it feels out of control. With good nutrition, regular physical activity and a positive mindset you can not only survive menopause, but also actually age fabulously!

     

    After a long career in corporate marketing, I was faced with an opportunity to do something entirely different - something I was truly passionate about. And that passion was health and fitness, especially for women in this age group.

     

    Now, after earning multiple certifications and starting my own business, I coach, guide, support and empower other women to transform their own health and lifestyle habits to experience a renewed level of energy, strength, awareness and confidence so they can live more active and healthy lives and feel fabulous again!

    Feel Fabulous Again:

    90-Day Transformation

    Are you ready to take control of your health again? Are you tired of trying the latest "diet" only to find the weight loss doesn't last? Would you like to trade your unhealthy habits for healthy ones that are easy to maintain? Then it might be time for you to prioritize yourself and experience health coaching so you can feel fabulous again!

     

    During this 90-day transformational coaching program, completely transform your relationship with food and your body for good. Identify the foods and lifestyle habits that are sapping your "fabulousness" and what to do about it. Discover foods that give you the most energy for your unique body type (we're all different and have different needs), and turn healthy habits into behaviors that last.

    We address all aspects of your health - physical, mental, spiritual and emotional - in an inviting and empowering way.

     

    This allows you to experience a whole new level of energy, strength, awareness, weight loss, beauty and confidence to create the lifestyle you desire, and to be the woman you're meant to be while living a longer, healthier, more active life.

     

    Includes 12 coaching sessions by phone with resources, activities, experiential exercises and discovery.

    Have you ever thought you might start working out again if only you could be guided by a like-minded woman of your age who understands where you're at in your life, and can appreciate your challenges and vision?

    14-Day Reset Cleanse

    How do you know it's time for a cleanse?

    - do you feel bloated after eating?

    - do you have cravings for sugary or starchy foods?

    - do you have headaches frequently?

    - do you have frequent energy slumps?

    - do you have stubborn extra pounds that just won't budge?

     

    If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, it's time to jump-start your health with a new approach to nourishing your body.

     

    This cleanse is a gentle, yet effective way to release toxins and excess bloat, reset your digestive system and renew your baseline of well being - all while eating real, whole foods.

     

    Learn what foods help you to feel your best, decrease cravings for unhealthy foods, experience deeper sleep, feel great and have more energy!

     

    Includes 3 coaching sessions and all the resources you'll need to prepare for and complete the cleanse.

    WHAT CLIENTS SAY

    Lisa W.

    Fitness Coaching

    I just signed up for my second package of personal training sessions with Jenene! After reading about her interest in helping women over the age of forty, I decided it was time to do something for me and my health.

     

    I’m a busy wife and Mom with a couple of health issues. I’m 48 years old and have not consistently exercised in quite some time. Knowing I’d be uncomfortable and not personally committed to a gym, I thought personal training could be the answer. And it has been!

     

    Jenene has a darling home studio with several different kinds of exercise equipment. Her schedule is accommodating. Most importantly, Jenene is educated, organized, and thoughtful in her training session planning! She has the ability to push me, but can recognize and respect a limitation, too. Each personal training session is different and FUN!

     

    I always look forward to my work-outs with Jenene! I feel better: physically and mentally. I’ve learned new exercises and the reasoning behind them. It’s a commitment to a new lifestyle and I thank Jenene for her inspirational contribution!

    90-Day Transformation Program & Fitness Coaching

    Working with Jenene was truly transformational in so many ways! Women of a certain age make a choice…let yourself go physically and mentally or embrace the energy of what life has to offer and dig in! Jenene’s transformation program is a plan for life and with her as my health coach it is an experience I will never forget. Her program and process is structured for anyone willing to take a look at what’s good about your life and where you have opportunities to make things better. When we would have our weekly session I was like a sponge soaking up everything she had to say. What is the most amazing thing is that the journey she takes you on is all about you and rethinking how your see every aspect of who you are. For me, it was all about changing the negative narrative in my head and Jenene helped me do that with kindness and grace. I am a stronger person today than I ever thought possible and much of that new-found strength I credit to Jenene and her program for helping me find the way to a healthier lifestyle, a more positive self-image and tools and skills that I will be able to use for the rest of my life. Thank you Jenene!"

    Fitness Coaching

    "I made a number of health decisions that made 2017 a huge year for me. I had bariatric surgery on February 13th. Prior to the surgery I had lost 22lbs. following the advice of the dietitian at the weight loss center. The success of my surgery included exercise. This was emphasized in all of the classes and appointments. I worked with Jenene Armstrong in her long and successful marketing career and viewed her to be a hard worker, a good person and someone I could trust. We reconnected about her passion, being a health coach. The timing could not have been more perfect and it feels like she was an answer to my prayer.

    Jenene has been patient, supportive and when needed, pushy. I cannot sing her praises enough. She has worked on my balance and I am doing things that I would have never imagined possible. I honestly didn’t think that Jenene could be better in this role than her prior marketing role, but she is. Jenene has motivated and encouraged me. She truly is a great coach and you will be amazed. She mixes things up so that the workouts are varied and interesting, and Jenene makes these sessions fun. Yes, I said fun. Keeps me wanting to be there and I hate to miss when I travel for work. But because Jenene has given me so many ways to keep moving when traveling, I can still keep working. Jenene is simply wonderful. Please work with her and you will be so happy that you did. I am.

    I have now lost almost 114 pounds. I am not focused on the number, but on what I am able to do without pain and with greater confidence. Jenene, thank you. I cannot tell you how much your confidence in me has helped. I encourage everyone to take that first step. Jenene has a great workout studio and everything needed – a ballet bar and a TRX. I used to have pain with all types of movement. It is gone. Seriously."

    14-Day Reset Cleanse

    "I participated in a detox cleanse through Jenene's Health and Fitness business and it was a great experience. I loved that it was all natural and educational. Through this process I learned a lot about nutrition and how food impacted my sleep, mood and energy. I personally used this cleanse to jump-start my journey to healthier living. As a coach, Jenene was amazing. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable, but she was also patient, kind and a lot of fun to work with. She was very skilled at meeting me where I was at and finding out what works for me. I highly recommend her as a coach and an expert in health and fitness. "

    Jeanne L.

    90-Day Transformation Program & Fitness Coaching

    "When I embarked on the health coaching journey, I didn't know what to expect. From our first meeting, Jenene put me at ease and helped me understand what was ahead. And what a journey it was! The program was extremely valuable for me as I learned to build a new foundation for my future good health. At every step Jenene helped me with her patience, knowledge, and insights. She always listened and asked great questions to help me see what I needed to do. The nutritional advice and experiential exercises were very valuable, but what surprised me most about the program was that Jenene helped me change the way I think about my health and all that goes into it. She helped me shed old habits and old ways of looking at things so that I could embark on a healthy new journey that will make my future bright!"

    Nicky M.

    Fitness Coaching

    "June 15, 2017, was my initial session with Jenene. I didn't feel very confident that day because I was recovering from surgery on February 28, 2017. Jenene made me feel safe and comfortable as we discussed what I wanted from her. It's been nine months and I feel as if I have given birth to a new Self! Jenene introduced me to the TRX - a system I had never heard of but almost instantly fell in love with. The exercises she coaches me on have strengthened and toned my body. She also gives me tips on eating healthy foods.

    Because of her encouragement, six days a week I do some type of exercise. I can't recommend Jenene highly enough. If you want to feel better about your body and your overall health, work with her. Growing up I wasn't very athletic and felt I wasn't able to do physical exercises very well. Now I realize that I didn't have the right help. With Jenene's help I stand up straighter and have more confidence in most everything I do! "

    Mandi R.

    14-Day Reset Cleanse

    "Jenene helped my husband and I to do a reset cleanse, and we had great success due to the thorough materials, the recipes, and the guidance Jenene provided in advance. She not only helped us prepare, she coached us through the two weeks of the cleanse and following. We were able to meet our goals, and we learned some new things from the cleanse. We couldn't have done it without her expertise and coaching! "
