Laughing Profile

Jenny Grothe is a female body builder and advocate for fitness. Her journey into bodybuilding didn’t start six years ago when she underwent her own body transformation. It started long before that. It started in 1987 when she was a teenager who was active in select sports and drill-team, and she didn’t have to work all hard to maintain a lean physique.

Jenny’s mom was also a bodybuilder – an “early adapter,” to the sport of female fitness and body-building, and a role model for Jenny. It took her many, many years to follow in her mother’s footsteps, but when she finally set her sights on competing at the young age of 38, she was quite overweight. Jenny’s life changed during the Fall of 2007. That’s when she decided (for the last time) to shed 60 pounds, trade unhealthy habits for good ones, and start “leading” her life rather than letting her life “lead” her.

It was at that time she learned about clean eating and is now a published author and admin of the popular Facebook Fan Page, “Recipes for Gals in Figure and Bodybuilding” which boasts more than 120,000 fans and grows by an average of 500 each week.

Jenny has had the opportunity to run the Boston Marathon twice, multiple others endurance and adventures races, and is now training for the New York Ing. Marathon come November. Being a non-runner in school, running is now a solace to her and connects her to her dad – who ran track in college. One of her most memorable and life changing moments was crossing the finish line of the Boston marathon just one minute before the bombs went off.

One of her most recent projects was releasing the Jen-Fit Lifestyle Program last year in which she shares structured steps, tips, and key teachings with accountability measures built in to help other women aspire to a desirable sustainable healthy lifestyle.

As a Brand Ambassador with FitFluential, Jenny has represented some of the biggest names in the fitness and health industries.

Jenny is also a contributing author to many popular fitness magazines – including Muscle & Fitness Hers, Oxygen, Iron Man, GORGO, and Haute Health to name a few. She was the featured guest, speaking weekly for a nationwide Sirius radio station for a period of 3 months.

Being fully immersed in the health and fitness industry by sharing her passion, Jenny has also had the opportunity to speak to women’s, fitness, and transformation groups all over the Western states – her favorite topics including Inspiring Women to Start, Determining our own Internal Strengths, Living a Balanced Life, Finding Spirituality in what most would consider a Vain Industry, and helping Women who struggle with various Eating Disorders. Having a strong reputation in the industry, Jenny has been interviewed by dozens of online communities, magazines, and blogging groups.

Jenny is passionate about fitness and bodybuilding, and shares her story of overcoming inactivity and being completely out of shape, to becoming a dynamic spokeswoman for what is possible for women who want to get fit and completely change their body image – and their belief in themselves!
