I was recently invited to chat with Ronsley Vaz on his Bond Appitit Podcast, chatting all things Motherhood, Freedom, Obstacle racing, Business, Food and many things in between! Ronsley’s intro into my Podcast is below:
Jen Dugard turned her passion into her career after taking note that there was a disconnect in the world of mothers, fitness and business. Jen is a highly motivated mother of two, fitness specialist and author, that dedicates her life to show all mums that they can put themselves first and achieve both the body and lifestyle of their dreams.
Jen’s mission is to passionately redefine what it means to be a mother in Australia today. While previously it has been all about looking after the baby and children, it can now also be about the specific life of the mum as well. First Jen breaks these misconception by giving mums back their confidence starting with their body images. Jen supports mums by creating communities that use exercise, support networks, and challenges that force mums to take time to specifically work on themselves.
Secondly Jen lives by example after achieving her best ever body after the birth of her second child. Through pursuing her own physical fitness passion, as an elite obstacle racer, she leads others showing that when mum is happy and healthy, there is only ever a positive impact on her children and the people around her.
Jen Dugard’s message on exercise as a mum is simple:
You must take the time to re-build from the inside out to become stronger, fitter and more confident then you have ever been.
