About Me

So happy that you decided to come to my blog and learn more about how to live a healthier lifestyle!

My name is Melissa Jenkins and I live in Utah!
I am a Mother to 3 beautiful kids! And I love my husband Brady so much!

December 2015

A little about me and how I am qualified to coach you in your journey to becoming healthier by either losing weight, toning your body, helping to maintain your weight, or if you are just coming to my blog because you like what you can learn.
I graduated from college in 2009, when our first born, Kate was 2 years old. I love my family very much and have always had a desire to keep them healthy and active. In 2010 our second daughter was born, Brynlee! And then we had our third child, a baby boy! Camden came into our lives in 2013.
This is me after the birth of my 10 lb. baby Boy

My Bachelor's degree is in Health Promotion and Nutrition Education. I am passionate about Health and Fitness and learning about what nutrients our bodies need, and sharing it with you.

I have taught many aerobic, group exercise classes including Turbo Kick, Step, Water Aerobics and now am teaching Turbo Fire!  I love motivating women and even kids to work hard and get the results they want!
I was able to crush through my plateau and lose all my baby weight

I gained the infamous Freshman 15 after high school, tried to lose it before I got married and that didn’t happen, and since then was never able to lose the weight. I was always hitting a plateau.  I am a mother of 3 kids, my last child was 10 lbs! I hit 170 lbs! I don't know if I am done having children yet- maybe 1 more, but I was sick of always being at a certain weight- I would lose weight from my babies slowly after having them, but I would eventually hit a plateau! And wasn’t able to reach my goal weight so many times I tried. I would give in to my excuses of being too busy with kids and would put half of myself into going to the gym, working out and sometimes would push myself, but then fall back into my excuses. And then it would be weeks before I would go to the gym again. Vicious cycle. I was sick of hitting a plateau after a year of having my child and not getting any results. But then I realized if I wanted to feel and look different, I had to do something different! So I knew my body would need a change and I needed to UP MY GAME! I wanted to lose more, but it wasn’t happening- I realized if I wanted different results, I needed to change something different.
I have always loved being healthy and exercising, but as a MOM- sometimes wouldn't take care of myself first. I decided to become a coach through an old friend- we reconnected and I saw all her posts and decided to ask her about it! I pretty much knew before we talked- I was in! I had tried P90X before with my husband, was a group fitness instructor teaching TURBO KICK before kids and I was ready to make a change! I signed up almost 3 months ago and am LOVING IT! I love helping women to be healthy and to put themselves first! I started wanting to work on myself and my results first, but decided to jump in and help others as well!
I am HAPPY to say, since starting into Coaching, and a HUGE believer in Shakeology helping my progress- I have gotten past my plateau and am at a weight I haven’t been in since high school! Most importantly I feel great and I feel like I can do just about anything I set my mind to! I love helping others to get past the mental block of “I can’t do it” And helping them reach their goals as well!

I have been able to support many women & men to reach their health and fitness goals. I have also been able to help others get on their own journey of Coaching! As a mother myself, life gets very busy with kids, but if we take care of our bodies, we will have the energy we need to run all over the place with the ones we love. We will be in this journey together.
