It is not often we share weight loss before and after photos here, but the amazing transformation of Jennifer Nicole Lee is certainly worth sharing.
She taught herself how to exercise properly and how to eat healthily to lose weight. This photo shows how she looked before she started her workout program and how she looked afterwards (it is of course possible that there is a little extra work done with Photoshop here, but overall, the result is amazing).
You can see that she gained a lot of tummy fat after the birth of her son. Many women think that it is not possible to tighten their stomach once they are a mom, but this is simply not true. As you can see below, her transformation is truly amazing.
Jennifer Nicole Lee went on to compete in fitness model competitions and won. As a result she developed the Fitness Model Program which is designed to teach you how you can get in great shape too.
How Did She Do It?
Jennifer became very determined to get fit. She explained to FNC iMag in 2012:
” I was sick and tired of being fat and out of shape with little to no energy. Being a new mom really hit me hard; I wanted to be the best mom and wife I could be. I made a commitment to learn everything possible about how super fitness models and serious athletes ate and trained.”
Jennifer studied for over 6 years at University to learn about health, wellness, sports science and nutrition. She has since spent 5 years working as a personal trainer helping others to lose weight in get fit. During this time she won Ms. Bikini America and Ms. Bikini Universe.
Now she teaches how you too can lose weight and get fit and toned with her Fitness Model Program.
Key Fitness Methods
The key method to training for fitness, toning and weight loss is as follows, according to Jennifer Nicole Lee:
- Perform six circuits of three sets of 30-second strength moves, followed directly by 30-seconds of a body weighted cardio blast.
Strong is The New Skinny
Her trademark phrase is “Strong is The New Skinny” and by this she is referring not only the muscular strength, but also mental strength and emotional strength.
Staying focused and being persistent, determined and never giving up on your dream is vital if you want to get really fit. The same rules apply to athletes and professional sport players as they do to moms, dads and anyone else for that matter!
Strength training is the only way to really tone up though. Building athletic muscle makes all other fitness easier too. In fact, everything becomes easier if you build some muscle – do the shopping, carrying children, gardening, pushing a pram a long distance – you name it, all physical activity is made easier when you are stronger.
The Biggest Loser?
There are rumors that Jennifer Lee will be a weight loss and fitness coach on the next series of The Biggest Loser. More soon!
Really anyone that is still reasonably fit and healthy can get results like this. Losing weight and getting fit is as much about mental effort and iron willpower, as it is about physical exertion and sweat. You have to really want to make the change and then set up the perfect environment to make that change happen.
Everyone has obstacles, it does not matter whether you are a top level athlete or a busy working mom, everyone can find excuses to prevent them from exercising for a day, or come up with a reason why that comfort food is needed today.
The key is to just keep working at making yourself a better person – for this is why we all do it. We get in shape, lose fat and tone up to make ourselves better people. To be healthier, fitter and happier. So remember that always.
