Be the Best Version of Yourself

It’s almost summer, and it’s time to focus on your health. And that means no excuses. Are you ready to make a life change and be the best version of yourself? If so, meet Jenny Dean. She’s not your average fitness instructor. She’s a true, authentic believer in the ability to use fitness to change every aspect of your life—your health, your friendships, your career, your relationships with your partner and your children. She’s making huge waves in the fitness world and has changed the way Frisco feels about getting healthy. Just ask Mayor Jeff Cheney, who never misses a Jenny Dean class.

Jenny’s mission is to create a community with like-minded people who support and lift each other up daily.

“We rise by lifting others,” Jenny says. “I believe when you are in your best physical shape it affects everyaspect of your life. Your work performance improves, your relationships get better, your confidence increases; it affects how we live every day.”

To change your life, Jenny believes in incorporating these components into your daily routine.

HIIT it Hard for the Summer – Short workouts have great value and can be done several times throughout a day or can be a great way to utilize 10 to 20 minutes of time. No one really has an hour to work out anymore. Jenny Dean Fitness will launch a series of high-intensity interval training workouts on her website. These quick, effective HIIT training workouts that can be done at home or in the office. Make this a no-excuse year!

The Benefits of POWER Yoga – Yoga is the healing exercise of the decade. Just a few quick things yoga can do for you: increases stamina, strength and flexibility, tones the muscles, alleviates stress and tension, eliminates toxins, promotes blood circulation and boosts the immune system—and not to mention a big calorie burner! Jenny Dean Fitness will be launching on her website a 45-minute POWER flow yoga class that can be done in the comfort of your home.

Sleep Jenny believes sleep is more important than your daily workout. How we sleep sets the tone for the entire day. Did you know when you get less than seven hours of sleep a night, your performance decreases, your lung function decreases, your injury rate increases by 60 percent and lactic acid buildup increases, causing muscle fatigue and muscle soreness? Going without sleep for 20 hours is the same on your brain and body as being legally drunk. Our brains practice while we sleep. When you are getting good quality sleep, you are 20 to 30 times more efficient at a movement you learned the day before.

What to Do When You Are in a Rut – Working out must become a habit or you will quit. A few quick ways to get out of a rut include: using a workout calendar and having an accountability partner. Doing something is better than nothing. Be aware of excuses! Everyone has 100 excuses as to why we shouldn’t work out. We all say we are too “busy” to work out. The reality is, if it is important to us, we will find a way. Get motivated by keeping a picture of a body you like on your phone. Look at it every time you want to skip that workout. For the days you can’t make it to the gym, take a walk around the neighborhood.

Eat Right: Fuel Your Body – There is so much information about what diet to try, what to eat, when to eat it—it can all be very confusing! Jenny Dean approaches her food choices as if she’s putting gas in her car: If she doesn’t fill the car up, it doesn’t go anywhere! So, if you do not feed your muscles and brain, it will not perform for you. Jenny doesn’t believe in diets. She believes in eating clean, wholesome foods. If it has to be stored in the pantry, she’s not eating it. So everything is fresh and has a shelf life. Tips and easy options are available on Jenny Dean’s website. 

Healthy is about finding what works for you. Healthy can be hard; life gets in the way, and that’s OK.

“I want people to understand that when you choose to do better, healthy feels awesome,” Jenny says.

Being healthy affects everything. Exercise is more than just physical; it is therapeutic.

“I hope to be the reason someone took that walk during their lunch break or took a class after work,” Jenny says. “It starts with doing one thing and making that one thing a habit, which will turn into a daily routine.”

Jenny’s vision is to inspire others and leave them with a life-changing experience by providing life tips and true results that improve their body and spirit. This comes from caring about every individual and creating a safe, open, transparent environment.

“I want to leave a lasting impression while sharing knowledge and inspiring individuals to live their best life,” she says. “Once you are right in your body and mind, everything changes. I want to leave individuals feeling like they can do anything in the world, and my hope is that it lasts a lifetime.”
