Her journey to being the “queen of webcam workouts” is personal and relatable to so many women looking to embark on a wellness journey. JNL was born and raised Italian and if her family is anything like mine, pasta is a food group that stands alone. Her struggle with eating a lot, losing the weight, eating a lot was a repeat cycle that led to lack of self-esteem. Adding two children into the mix, JNL experienced what many women often do after having kids: no energy, aches, pains and not feeling adequate. So, she did something about it and embarked on a journey to find what she called the secrets to create energy and ultimately discovered there are no secrets. It was about finding balance.Persistence. We hear it all the time when it comes to fitness goals, but JNL stresses it should not be equated with perfection. JNL started training every day, but not to be perfect, not to be skinny, but for herself. People work out and think it is punishment and JNL wanted to reverse that mindset. Don’t think of exercise as a punishment because “strength comes in all shapes and sizes.”Her online workouts reach a widespread audience where women can log on, feel empowered and motivated in a non-judgmental atmosphere.
