Jen Childress, MS, MCHES, CPFT
I believe in a happy, healthy, and balanced lifestyle; and in making lasting, meaningful changes, one step at a time.
I meet people where they're at; whether it's cheering you on in just getting off the couch and dropping one fast food meal at a time; or pushing you to new heights in training you for the biggest events of your life. I believe that health is our most valuable asset.
I'm a fan of fitness; and promote being on the go! I'm the empress of accountability and create a motivating environment to help you achieve your best!
I believe in life, health, and abundance! I believe that everyday of our lives should be fabulous and fun!
I know that my purpose in life is to help others become their best selves too!
I have a Master's degree in Health Promotion Management, and am a Master Certified Health Education Specialist, a Certified Coach, and Certified Personal Fitness Trainer.
I have been selected as a 2016 Top Ten Woman in Business by the American Business Women's Association (ABWA), a national recognition of career accomplishments, community involvement, and contributions to ABWA.
STAY ON THE BEAT!

I'm currently reading Brene Brown's "Daring Greatly". Recently, I've been hearing a lot and reading quite a bit on the topic of vulnerability and authenticity, so it seemed like this book would help guide me on how to open up more and shine light on how I can help my clients on their journeys.
Louise Hay's "You Can Heal Your Life" was my first introduction to, and continues to be one of my go-to sources for mind/body healing. And, I often use what I've learned through her personally, and with my clients.
I frequently get asked the question about how much I workout; along with the comment about how working out and energy must just come super easy to me.
The truth is, just like you, some days I'm more motivated than others. There are days where my body is craving activity. I get the tingles and "ants in my pants" feeling and just need to MOVE! And, then there are days where I have to give myself a pep talk and promise myself some type of reward for getting up off the couch.
Just because the 4th is over, doesn't mean the glow is gone! Keep your sparkle going strong by staying hydrated. I know, I know, we often hear about the importance of staying hydrated; but it's the truth!

And a way for you to calculate how much water you need!
