My name is Jennifer Monsos. In 1999, I smoked two packs of cigarettes a day, and struggled with my weight. In 2003, I completed the Whistlestop Marathon in Ashland, Wisconsin! in 2013, I finished the Missoula Marathon and I have done a bunch of half marathons, walking or running. If I can do it, you can do it too, and I would love to help you!
yogafitnesswellness….has grown from a desire to help others achieve wellness. After practicing yoga for a while, I decided I would like to offer classes to others in our small town. It has taken time to get people to understand the benefits of yoga, but those who attend regularily love the feeling they get from a class.
After losing 50 lbs and training for a marathon, I decided I also wanted to offer others the opportunity to be healthy. There is really no mystery to good health. Good eating habits along with regular exercise is really all it takes. A commitment to a program designed just for you is the important thing. Once you feel good, you won’t want to go back to your old ways. If you need encouragement, sign up for my email list. I will email you encouragement, recipes, exercise tips and other tidbits of information you may find useful. Also, feel free to email me with questions, ideas or comments! Together, we can help each other achieve wellness….
My mission is to provide encouragement in a body positive and non judgmental environment to anyone wishing to get healthy. Healthy does not mean skinny! It means overall wellbeing, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Without all three, you cannot be totally healthy! I also strive to offer products and supplements of only the highest quality. I will only make available products I feel will enhance your well-being. Feel free to pick and choose the products and supplements to best suit your needs. CLICK HERE to contact me!
