Jennifer Kottkamp, Master Certified Health Coach
HI! I’m Jennifer Kottkamp and I’m a Master Certified Health Coach.
I’m also just a mom who loves feeling young and healthy because I have a lot things I want to do. I want to live to at least a healthy 100 and I plan to do it by aging backwards. What does that mean? Keeping my biological age (the age of my cells) behind my chronological age (the age I am). I’ve figured it out and I’m passionate about sharing that knowledge with others.
I struggled with exercise and nutrition most of my adult life. I was never happy with my weight or how my clothes fit because I was always pushing the limit to go up a dress size. To lose weight, I would restrict myself but then put it right back on when I went back to my normal way of eating. Oh, and I HATED exercising! It felt like torture and anything I tried would never last because there was no mind body connection. Any of this sounding familiar?
At 38, I got pregnant after trying for a year. Then I got serious about my health and started searching for simple changes that would stick. That led to a passion for nutrition and becoming a health coach at 45. Then I found an exercise that I loved and started teaching it at 47. Now in my 50’s, I’m a mom of a teenager, I’m still teaching fitness and I’m figuring out how to kick menopause in the ass! I may have been a slow starter, a turtle if you will. But you know what? The turtle wins the race!
If any of this resonates with you, let’s talk and see if we’re a good fit.
The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you’re not going to stay where you are.
