Jennifer Penney's wake up call: An interview about how slow is the new strong.
Updated: Dec 22, 2020
Is it possible to slow down, be sensually attuned & get stronger? Abso-friggin-lutely.
Meet Jennifer Penney. She wants you to stop killing yourself in your workouts -- and connect with your body. In fact, Jennifer has been in the business of killing yourself in fitness classes for 20 years until a self created injury became a wake up call.
Case in point? Her company, ABCstronger.com, teaches women how to slow down, get stronger, and recover fully from common ailments that women experience after having kids.
Jennifer is also the creator of a regular workshop series that she leads in her private Facebook group - Stronger Pelvic Floor. These have given women a place to start and begin their own healing journey to a stronger self via slowing down.
"I would have been teaching with my arm falling off" it felt like that's what strength was - but it wasn't at all - ignoring all of those signals made it tougher ... when I slowed down and started to feel and connect - I actually got so much stronger. “ Jennifer says, and she's on a mission to help women hear this wake up call and get stronger by slowing down and connecting with their body.
If you’ve ever felt too far gone, or too far past postpartum, too unmotivated, or too something, today's interview is a must-see. Jennifer is connecting the dots that every women needs to know when it comes to healing our bodies and being truly strong.
