The most important thing for you to know about me is that I LOVE people, and that includes YOU!

I gained 48 pounds over the course of my pregnancy (I’m only 5’1″!) with my first son and I really struggled with feeling bad about myself. Doing the work to lose those 48 pounds was really difficult but my weight loss journey led me to realize that weight loss is a CHOICE.

I assumed that the weight would come right off after I had my baby, and I was shocked at how wrong I was!  It took many small changes and several months to feel like myself again. My body 18 years later definitely isn’t the same as it was before I had kids, but it’s strong and beautiful.

My Fit Life 4 system allows me to be your biggest cheerleader, holding your hand through weight loss success.

You aren’t alone, and this isn’t a one-size-fits-all program. I will be praying for and supporting you every step of this journey. If you are truly ready to embrace this system, YOU WILL SUCCEED.

I am a Certified Weight Loss Specialist, Certified Nutritional Consultant, Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach, and Certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor. I received my B.S. in Sports Medicine from Eastern Michigan University where I was a college cheerleader. My professional fitness journey began in 1993 when I first became certified to teach step aerobics (old school!). Today, I teach in-person classes at AKT in Royal Oak, Michigan. If you don’t live nearby and want to join, they also offer virtual workouts. Join us!

I’ve made several fitness DVD’s, hosted 3 seasons of my own tv show on Xfinity called “Jody’s Fit Life”, and have been the Fitness and Nutrition Expert for local NBC affiliate WDIV-4 since 2015. My passion has always been to share the truth about Nutrition and Fitness with the world!

I am married to my wonderful husband Eric, and have teenage 2 sons. Our French Bulldog, Morty and two cats bring much joy and laughter to our home.

I play piano and am learning to play the drums. I love God and believe in love, kindness, and compassion toward all people. I look forward to getting to know YOU!
