PERSISTENT is definitely the word to describe Oxygen Magazine’s Featured Athlete and FITBODY Magazine Model Jenna Dunham. After gaining weight during multiple pregnancies, Jenna Dunham took control of her fitness and came back stronger and fitter every time!
38 year old mother of 2 boys ages 5 and 1, and stepdaughter, age 10, and happily married for 6 years. I have been a fitness instructor part time for the past 15 years and currently teach Pilates classes. I love running, Spartan Races, kettlebells, and lifting weights. I also enjoy learning about alternative medicine and have been involved in the natural food/supplement industry for over 10 years.
I have lost 80 pounds, 30 pounds, and 70 pounds of gained weight during my pregnancies. This took anywhere from 3 to 9 months, but I totally transformed my body each time.
Working with Julie Lohre and having support from family and friends has helped me the most with my transformation. Also, I am a stubborn person and that has helped me dig in and not give up 🙂
What do you love most about fitness?
I love the way I feel, inside and out when I make fitness a priority in my life. It is a stress reliever, a mood booster, and a way of just clearing my head. It gives me energy and helps me feel and look younger.
From here my fitness goals are to one day like to compete in an Ironman. Aside from that, I would like to work on continuously improving on my running time and my physique.
What motivates you to live a healthy lifestyle?
My kids motivate me the most! I want to be a good example for them, first and foremost. Additionally, I want to be able to motivate and inspire other moms, and that keeps me on the right track.
Best part of working with Julie Lohre
Julie Lohre is one of the most sincere and caring people that I know. She really helps me to find a balance between fitness and real life. She doesn’t just care about getting to stage or winning, she wants us all to make this a lifestyle and make our diets and workouts part of every day life. Her food plans are for real people, she doesn’t restrict or give out unreasonable diets or workouts. They may not be easy, but they are balanced and tailored to fit personal situations and needs.
Worst part of working with Julie Lohre
I just really can’t think of anything, and I laugh when I see that question!
Favorite clean eating food or recipe
4 oz ground turkey, 6 steamed asparagus spears, 1/2 small avocado. Mix together and voila! I love this quick and easy meal!
I also love 2 scoops Beverly International’s Ultimate Muscle Protein, 1 tsp sugar free, fat free banana pudding mix, enough water or unsweetened almond milk to make a pudding, top with 1/4 cup crushed up Fiber One cereal and a little fat free redi whip. Banana Pudding!! So good!
Jenna Before & After
