JJ Flizanes-The Invisible Fitness formula
JJ Flizanes is an Empowerment Strategist, author of Fit 2 Love: How to Get Physically, Emotionally, and Spiritually Fit to Attract the Love of Your Life, and host of the Fit 2 Love Podcast Show.
She's on a mission to transform the meaning of the word "fitness" to include not just the state of a person's physical body, but also the emotional, mental, and spiritual factors which affect a person's overall well being.
When she was thirteen, and puberty hit she was one of the only girls in class with hips and breasts, and she felt ugly. As a cheerleader for her junior high school, she was considered a "base," because she had hips someone could use as stairs to climb onto her shoulders. She knew from the beginning she was too heavy, too curvy, to experience being a "flyer"—one of the girls on top of the pyramid. It made her feel ashamed of her body.
But, feeling awkward and ugly strengthened her self-esteem, because she felt forced to focus on other aspects of her personality talent and intelligence.
Whilst working in a gym as a receptionist she was inspired to pursue an education in personal training and from the beginning focused on science and how to apply it to her clients bodies to make changes and improvements.
As she learned more about biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and physics, She developed a profound regard for her body for the miracle and perfection it is. This doesn't mean she always loves the way it looks on the outside! In fact, she's had to learn and keeps practicing the art of loving herself unconditionally.
We talked about her holistic approach to exercise and wellness and her new book The Invisible Fitness Formula: 5 Secrets to Release Weight & End Body Shame
