113: Jessica Rothenberg on Working Smarter (Not Harder) in the Gym, Ignoring Naysayers, the Overabundance of Food, and Getting Kids to Eat Healthy

June 17, 2018

This week I’m chatting with Jessica Rothenberg from the Training Hour! Jessica is a personal trainer and online coach who has years of experience helping clients reach their personal health and wellness goals. In this episode, Jessica shares her health journey when it comes to fitness and food, how it has evolved over the years, and the biggest lessons she’s learned. She talks about what it was like getting in shape and fighting the naysayers who were telling her she was doing it wrong, and how to stand firm in your beliefs. Jessica shares her best tips on how to work smarter and not harder in the gym, what to do when what you’re doing isn’t working, and the best way to get longterm, lasting results with fitness. She also shares the most common mistakes she sees that are holding people back on their health journeys. Jessica talks more about how her diet has changed over the years, the benefits of fasting and who should and shouldn’t do it, and the problem with an abundance of food. She also discusses her best tips for journaling and tracking health symptoms, how to get kids to eat healthy without seeing food as a punishment or a reward, and more about how she met her boyfriend, Sal Di Stefano!
