Little Old Me

You feel lost, stuck and like you are living in Groundhog Day.

You are not alone, I have been there too.

I’m Jen Wilson, I am the founder and owner of Freedom In Training and the Warrior Woman Project, and my passion is helping amazing women be healthier and happier with as little fuss as possible.jen-wilson-portrait-020-web

Since 2009 I have been working with women (and some men) on their journey to accepting themselves. It started out with personal training and group fitness and along the way I discovered a huge step that we were missing just focusing on fitness and nutrition. How you feel and think about yourself from the inside, your mind-set.

I found my freedom through the confidence I gained from focusing on my and working out in the gym. It is the place that I go to when I need to clear my head, when I feel down and need a pick me up and the place that got me through the worst times during my marriage ending.

I get that the gym is not the place for everyone, some women find it intimidating, or mind numbingly boring (and that is okay) I am not going to tell you that all the answers to your problems are in the gym. They are not. Where you will find the answers to your problems is inside, but to hear the answers we need to quiet the noise and clear the chaos.

The Warrior Woman Project helps you find that inner warrior that wants the best for you and your happiness and awakens her to have you strong and loving who you are inside and out.

I have never been someone who sticks at things that she hates doing.

My philosophy is: Life is Too Short for that shit.

Don’t get me wrong, I have worked in jobs that I hated just to pay the bills and stayed in a relationship or two way longer than I should have.

You have to try things to see if you like them. Finding your passion for most of us is about trial and error. There are very few who are born knowing what they want to do with their life, and the trial and error part scares a lot of people away.

Some things in life you just need to suck it up and get on with, like school, I hated school. I wasn’t delighted to be there, but I went and did the best I could uninspired and unmotivated, doing what I was told because I don’t like to get in to trouble.

I had no idea what to do with my life when I left school, so I picked the college course that interested me the most – Travel & Tourism. This was mostly down to the fact that there was an ‘educational’ at the end of the year. Yip, that’s right, I made my first big life decision based on going on holiday. And many more decisions after followed the same motivation – travelling.

I loved that year at college, so much, that I got Student of the Year (not too shabby for someone who hated school and scraped through with 1 higher). That year took me in to a career in travel that spanned 13 years. I got to go and live in Greece and Gran Canaria then took off to live in Australia having traveled through quite a lot of Europe, South East Asia, China, Mongolia & Russia.

There came a point where I realised that my passion wasn’t in working in the travel industry. I love travelling but that is about where my love affair with it ends.

My passion was in fitness (I didn’t start to enjoy the gym until I was about 26), in the gym and helping people make a change in their lives. Anyone that gets up at 445am to be in the gym for 530am to be in a spin class at 6am seriously needs their head read or is in love with fitness. It took me a couple of years to work out how I was going to get my foot in the door and a couple of attempts at finding my road in.

Membership sales was NOT for me. Standing on the street in the middle of Sydney’s Bondi Junction, trying to get people’s phone numbers to take them on a tour of the gym was hell on earth. I lasted 3 weeks then walked out the day before my 30th Birthday. There was no way I was starting a new decade of my life doing something that stressed me out so much that I had a constant pain in my chest and made me feel sad leaving the house. The life was being sucked out of me, until I pulled my big girl pants on and walked my sassy ass out of there.

I got on a flight to China, got the train from China to Russia to fly back to the UK (travelling again) and in to college to learn about this health and fitness stuff. That not being enough of course I signed up for as many courses as I could afford to build as much knowledge as I could.

I had found it, my passion, the thing that made me work 7 days a week, all day in college then working until 9 or 10pm at night, studying or on courses all weekend. I embraced any opportunity to get experience and learn from others in the industry.

5 years down the line I completed a degree in sport and exercise science and postgraduate diploma TQFE (teaching in further education) under my belt and a Master Practitioner NLP qualification. Business ventures tried and failed. Relationships came and went. Lots of lessons were learned and a LOT of fun is being had.

I developed this business in the years after my marriage ended, my Australian husband couldn’t settle here in Scotland and I had been really homesick living in Australia so we made the very difficult, sad and heartbreaking decision to go our separate ways.

NLP, my classes and my clients saved me, I had a purpose to get out of bed and not wallow in my own self-pity. I had reasons to keep moving forward. I was inspired by other people’s stories.

I have freedom now that I know what I am passionate about helping women find their passion through personal development coaching, nutrition coaching and personal training (picking and choosing what suits them).

I can explore the different avenues open to me. I want to reach out to as many people as possible to help them find their freedom. I keep learning, I keep sharing.

 

If you follow my emails (if you don’t you can sign up if you scroll up and look just to the right of here)  you will know that every day I try to teach you something or point you in the direction of making your life better, happier, getting you away from the bad weeks. Someone recently said to me ‘you know you have bad weeks, then you have really bad weeks…’ These days I don’t have bad weeks, and if I do I focus on the positive stuff that came out of them.

jen-wilson-portrait-022-webLove me or hate me for it, it’s how I get through life.

I’m your happy go lucky ray of fucking sunshine.

I have had more than my fair share of shit thrown at me. I have had massive losses in love, life, friendships, and finances. But I have also had massive gains, and those gains will always outweigh the loss.

You have 2 choices in this life, stay down when you get knocked down and be a victim. Or, stand up, straighten your crown and fight on fearlessly.
