Before and After: Jocelyn Ege
She Rocks Fitness has posted its first before and after photos of Jocelyn! Jocelyn and I started working together a year and a half ago, after she had her second baby, J.R. We met each other many years ago through her younger sister, with whom I played Division I field hockey at the College of William and Mary. We did not reconnect until she and her husband had decided to move to Denver a little over 4 years ago. After giving birth to J.R., Jocelyn called and asked for my help and so the training journey began…
When Jocelyn and I first started training together, she weighed 154 pounds and wore a size 12. She wasn’t physically active, nor was she careful about what she was eating. We started training two times a week doing 60 minute circuit training sessions with a stability ball and 2 pound dumbbells. The first month was frustrating for Jocelyn. She had no endurance, balance, nor strength. The great thing about Jocelyn is that SHE NEVER GAVE UP! No matter how tired she was I would be there every Tuesday and Thursday morning pushing her through sessions. Her dedication was, and still is, truly remarkable with all that she had going on in her life.
After a year and a half of two sessions a week, Jocelyn has made remarkable progress. We now use 8 pound dumbbells for all of our circuit training sessions. Our hour long sessions have now increased to 90 minutes or 120 minutes, so Jocelyn can not only do her 60 minute circuit training but also her running. She is able to do lunges, planks, and leg curls with little or no wobbles. She has lost all of her pregnancy weight and then some. But what she loves the most is how much stronger she has become! She has a noticeably stronger core, legs, and defined arms (which she says is her favorite part). Since a year and a half ago, Jocelyn now weights 127 and is a size 4.
Jocelyn is also an amazing cook and has made many healthy changes throughout this past year for herself and her family. Many of her recipes will be featured on this blog. She is a big fan of Greek Yogurt, Flat-Out, Hummus, Almond Butter, and granola, just to name a few. Her recipes include healthy muffins, Mediterranean entrees, Mexican, pizzas, and salads. They are quick, easy, nutritious, and delicious! Keep an eye out for them!
Jocelyn: You are an amazing wife, mother, and client! Your progress has been wonderful to watch and I am so glad that I have been able to help you through this journey. We will continue to plan training sessions for the future! Make sure to check back at the end of the summer to see Jocelyn on the beaches of Mexico!
