Warrior Mom with JJ Virgin

JJ Quotes (4).jpg

 

I am so excited to introduce to you our guest this week, New York Times bestselling author, celebrity nutrition expert, and Fitness Hall of Famer, JJ Virgin. Her latest book, Miracle Mindset, shows warrior moms how to be strong, positive leaders for their families. She also shares inspirational lessons that she learned as she fought for her own son’s life.

Listen to the podcast HERE

During JJ’s first book launch her 16 year-old son was hit by a car and left for dead. She shares how she used the “Miracle Mindset” to fight for her son’s life and “overrule” what doctors were telling her. She believes that our best time of growth is during challenges and that her family is now “better for what happened.”

We also walk through her famous Virgin diet and she explains why “eating less and exercising more” does not always work.  We also talk about weight loss resistance, the link between self worth and health, and why you should always put your health first.

Her story is incredibly inspiring and will empower you to “go for the impossible”.

Linda Mitchell

Linda Mitchell is more than qualified to help women reach a point of empowerment . As an Institute of Integrative Nutrition graduate, an award-winning fitness competitor, and elite obstacle racer. she collaborated on the fitness portion of the book “Fat Flush for Life” with mentor and New York Times Best Selling author Ann Louise Gittleman. This book was listed in Time magazine as one of the top ten diet books for 2009. As a former columnist for 12 years for Ms. Fitness magazine, Linda decided to put everything into a book and it really evolved and became “The Sisterhood of S.W.E.A.T.”.  Her book and the studio are all about helping women build confidence and self-esteem and learning to feel 100% great about themselves.    

Mitchell launched The Chickfit Studio in 2013. She says “At Chickfit, our priority is building women’s self-confidence. Our belief is that their newfound self-love will transfer into giving support and love to one another. Self-improvement equals empowerment.”

Mitchell was inspired to open The Chickfit Studio after she found that deep down in her heart she wanted to do something that was worthwhile and made real, lasting changes in people’s lives. She opened The Chickfit Studio after working as a group fitness director and personal trainer for about 25 years.
