Jenna is a beautiful and powerful leader that I met through the leadership workshop I’ve been doing. She’s become a good friend and is up to some big things. She started as a personal trainer and has trained some big names. She has a powerful story and is taking that to the next level and life coaching people to the next level in their lives.Jenna recently wrote a guest blog post on how to overcome being overwhelmed.
In your work as a personal trainer, who have you worked with that you can talk about?
I’ve worked with a smorgasbord of amazing human beings. I had been a trainer for just a month when I was 23, and my first client was Ben Stiller. I trained him for one of his movies and that experience catapulted my career into a vortex of limitless possibilities almost overnight. I was sought after by Jeremy Piven, Jackie Warner, Mark Hoppus (blink 182), the Marciano family, Kate Mara, Donald Penn (NFL), Katy Perry, Michael Rappaport and 3 Saudi Arabian princesses. I’ve also been blessed to work with Harold Rosen. He’s an 88 year old bad ass and he also invented the satellite that allows you to be reading this on your smartphone right now. I know. #mindblown
What’s a monumental moment in your life that has shaped your outlook?
When I was 17, I was in a head trauma accident that changed everything for me. I woke up from a coma with brain damage and had to relearn how to read, write, and verbally communicate. While I was in the ICU the doctors simultaneously diagnosed me with type 1 diabetes. I also had to learn how to manage that while I was regaining my sense of self. Doctors said I’d never be the same and they couldn’t have been more right. I made a full recovery, against their prognosis, and I graduated from high school on time even though they said it wasn’t possible. I realized that I can create and overcome anything if I want it badly enough.
What’s your vision?
My accident was the best thing that ever happened for me. It gave me the gift of realizing my life’s purpose. I’m on a mission everyday to motivate and inspire as many people as possible to move their bodies, eat REAL food, love themselves, and be a contribution to the higher good by paying it forward. We hold the key to total wellness and a healed world in our hands. Can you imagine what this world would be like if everyone loved themselves? I know it’s possible, and it all starts with Self Love.
What’s your mission for I’m On A Mission?
In this collective universe, we’re all on some kind of a mission every single day and throughout our entire life. Everyone has a mission to complete and a purpose to fulfill. I’m On A Mission is a way of life and a mindset that is available to anyone. I’m building a team of like-minded ninjas all over the world who are also on a mission to kick ass in life and we’re known as #teamIAM. We rock my inspiring I•▲M apparel line, eat food that wasn’t made in a factory, love to raise the bar and sweat everyday, and motivate everyone around us to love who they are. For my next project, I’m filming a web series around the I’m On A Mission mindset – featuring incredible people who have overcome the impossible and/or turned their pain into purpose. I want this to reach, and change the lives of, millions of people. And so it will!
