Episode 15 with Jeanette Jenkins

Our little ol’ podcast all of sudden gets more glamorous with one of Hollywood’s most sought-after celebrity trainers -- Jeannette Jenkins! How fancy is her client list? Jeanette has trained everyone from Alicia Keys to P!nk to Kelly Rowland  and so many more.

In addition to her personal training, Jeanette runs her own online fitness community at The Hollywood Trainer.com which helps members get healthy, eat right and feel better based on her more than 25 years of experience in fitness, health and nutrition.

On top of her many accomplishments Jeanette also ran her very first marathon (the New York marathon!) in 2016 to raise money for Keys’ charity that she co-founded Keep a Child Alive. The non-profit helps provide healthcare, medicine, and support to children and families affected by HIV.

Topics covered in our interview:

  • Her years living in public housing in Oshawa, Canada, and how it shaped her desire to be both generous to others in need and fueled her independent streak.
  • How she makes sure all of her business ventures have a charity component.
  • The time a man told her she would never be able to become a certified financial planner and how she keeps negative people at distance.
  • The reasoning behind her motto “Your heart is more important than your hair.”
  • The science behind HIIT workouts and how fat is burned efficiently afterwards.
  • Why she wishes more trainers would pay attention to risks and rewards before trying borderline dangerous exercises with clients.
  • Her worries about running her first marathon and how she plans to heal afterwards (Hint -- lots of foam rolling and stretching!)

Episode 14  with Meb Keflezighi

Are you ready for a super cool interview with a superstar runner? Well, you are in luck because in this episode we talk with long distance champion Meb Keflezighi who completely charmed us with his sweetness and sincerity.  

 

From his early days growing up in war-torn Eritrea, Africa, to running (and winning) the Boston marathon a year after the deadly bombings --- Meb’s unflagging spirit, hard work and determination have propelled him to the top of the running world while also staying grounded and devoted to charitable works.

As Meb was making a round of appearances on behalf of KT Tape right before the annual New York Marathon, the Fit Bottomed Girls were lucky enough to ask him a few questions and get some insight on how he stays so steady and focused.

Topics covered in our interview:

  • Meb and Kristen bonding before the call.
  • What was going through his mind when he crossed the finish line in Boston.  
  • The meaning behind his motto “Run to win.”
  • The time he managed to perform a few push-ups at the finish line at the 2016 Rio Olympics and the surprising reason he tried for one more shot at representing his country.
  • His charity work with the Meb Foundation which helps those in need to find balance in health, education and fitness.
  • The challenges he faces training over the age of 40.
  • How his parents sacrificed to make sure Meb and his siblings achieve the American dream.

Plus, Margo, Jenn and Kristen discuss their favorite mantras to help them stay focused in the face of adversity.
