Hi! I am Jenni Allen. No, not THAT Jennie Allen (see, her name has an "e" on the end) and I created this site to share my thoughts, revelations, failures, basically some of the ups and downs of life, with anyone who might need someone to relate to, cry with or maybe even laugh at.
I own and operate a small personal training studio with my amazing husband, James, who has a passion for fitness that, to be honestly honest, I don't really share but I am his "helper" in him fulfilling this dream. While James has been likened to a Greek god with his chiseled abs and love for protein smoothies, I tend to refer to myself as the "Relatable Personal Trainer". I don't really like exercise, but I do it because "it's good for me". I LOVE good food. Not necessarily good for me food, but yummy calorie dense, sugar ladened not so good for me food. I not only feel my clients pain, I share it.
I do have a passion for seeing others succeed. God has placed a mantle of leadership on my shoulders and some days, when I recognize I am nothing without Him, I ROCK! Some days, the ones when I try and walk in this calling with my own strength, I feel like crawling under a rock. Leading women is hard, but oh so worth it. As women we are called to rally around our fellow sisters and raise them up and we, as individuals, will be better for it. I promise. Jesus promises us that in real relationships, we flourish.
Thanks for joining me on this journey and it is truly my prayer that something here, a Word, an experience or a joke (even if its at my own expense) will lift your Spirit and make your day a little brighter.
