Elite Trainer | Charleston, SC
My name is Jenna Fail…yes Fail. I am 25 years old, proud wife to a wonderful husband & mom to 2 furry little babies! I followed in my moms footsteps with a background in Cosmetology. Although I don’t work behind a chair anymore I will always a passion for beauty. Growing up I was never active in sports. I remember dreading the schools yearly physical fitness test with mile run because I couldn’t do it. I would have never considered myself athletic & certainly never saw my life becoming what it is today. At 20 years old I found myself as a housewife with absolutely no goals in life. Waking up each day at noon, no income, no drive, no passion. I was unhappy and unmotivated. My husband was very active in the gym at this time and I saw how he was changing and how happy he was. He encouraged me and since I had all the time in the world, I decided to try out the gym. I am an "all in" kind of person. If I’m doing something, I do it all the way. So I knew starting this that I would take it serious. This was the first time in my life I truly dedicated myself to a goal. I had never been in a gym before & I had no clue what I was doing. I just wanted to feel better in a bikini. For me the results came fast and I was hooked! 5 years & 4 NPC national qualifications later, here I am. Funny how life plays out. Getting into the gym and training has taught me strength and discipline I never knew I had. My passion & career is teaching others that they have it too. Yes you. We are all capable of achieving whatever we set our minds to. As I always say: Change your mind, change your life! I once was weak with insecurities and fearful of what others thought. I wanted to blend in and do what everybody else did. Finding my strength through fitness has changed the way I handle and view everything. It has taught me patience, trust & discipline. Those 3 things alone with carry you far in all aspects of your life. I am fortunate to have found them through health & fitness.
MY "AHA" MOMENT
I’ve had countless “aha” moments in every aspect of my life & I still have them. I hope to have them when I’m 80. The day we stop learning is the day we stop growing. The most powerful “ahas” were learning life goes on, nothing lasts forever & that our mindset is our strongest tool.
MY SOURCE OF INSPIRATION
I am inspired by kindness. These days this world can often leave us feeling pretty hopeless. Seeing someone genuinely help someone else reminds me that although we may live an a pretty evil world, if we look close enough and with an open-heart we will see the good in it as well - even if its as small as a smile. That thought drives me to want to be that person for someone else.
THE NEVER SETTLE ATTITUDE
Being content is settling. The day you settle for what you have and what you are is the day you stop improving. I don’t care who you are, there is always room to improve. Myself included. Now this is not to be confused with un-grateful. Always be proud, humble & appreciative while working for better. Daily I focus on improving in some way shape or form. Remember, even the smallest improvement is still an improvement.
Honestly becoming a part of 1st Phorm has been my biggest achievement & my greatest honor. 1st Phorm has taught me more about myself than I ever knew existed & they have believed in me from the very beginning. There’s not one single member of 1st Phorm that I cant say I haven’t learned something valuable from. My determination is stronger, my goals are set higher & my confidence is unbreakable. I couldn’t say those things years ago before joining 1st Phorm. This opportunity has honestly changed my life and most days I still cant believe this is my life.
THE THING THAT KEEPS ME GOING
Simple, the Never Settle attitude as explained above. To be better we have to be better. I dream to see the world & reach positive messages to as many people as possible. Sometimes its just a simple phrase that strikes someone just right into changing their life and way they think. I want to be a positive voice in this often negative society that deems people inadequate of doing big things before giving them a chance. I’ve been that person who thought I wasn’t “good enough”. Turns out I am. Everyone is. You just have to believe it. I just want to reach people and help. That thought definitely keeps me going.
THE END GOAL
To love what I do everyday….actually, I do that already. I guess I’m living the dream.
