Hello, My name is Sheila, from Surrey, BC Canada. My health and fitness story started in September 2017 when my doctor gave me a medical diagnosis that I didn’t want hear but knew deep down it was true. I was 44 years old and 307 lbs. I was a wife and mother of 2, and I knew if I wanted to be there for my family in the long run, that I needed to go all in and fix my health. I started with changing my food habits and cutting out sugar. I started going to bed earlier as proper sleep I learned was part of the equation. After starting out with walking as my form of exercise I was ready in November of 2017 to kick it up and start working out. I had always loved step aerobics and weight training but I knew to be successful at exercise I had to be able to work out under my schedule. My son loved watching videos on YouTube, so that gave me an idea to look on YouTube to see if there was anyone posting exercise routines. I found Jenny Ford right away and from that moment on 5:30 am was my favorite time of the day. I would get up after my husband left for work but the kids were still in bed giving me my time to enjoy working out. Jenny you made it so easy with routines both challenging and fun and at my skill level. Your smiling face every morning encouraged me to do my best but to work at my pace. Once I started adding the core and ab workouts to my exercise routine I was noticing consistent weight loss. I am happy to share that I have lost 101 lbs and I have never felt better. I have been able to do so much more in my life and I am not just “Mom on the sidelines” anymore, I am participating in life with my husband and children. Thank you Jenny Ford for your dedication to your craft. You are such a beautiful person both inside and out.
It's been a 3 year journey starting at 70. I broke my arm. 3 months later a back compression fracture. Ready for assisted living? I decided NO. After losing the first 50, I knew I needed more inspiration...and there you were! I can't do 30 minutes at one time. However, I can do 15 minutes twice a day! 120 pound total loss. You are real. You are sincere. Somehow you touched me through the workouts (and Tyler's great choice of sound). I can do things I could not do a couple of years ago. I did go to PT. They started me on my road to recovery, but you carried me to the finish line...and I'm not stopping there! Everyone has that "button" inside of them that, when you push it, you can do amazing things you never thought you could! Rosalie Zukaitis
I started my journey in November 2017 after a health scare, at 245 lbs and I am now 154 lbs. I no longer take any blood pressure or diabetic medications. I always loved step aerobics, when I searched, you were the 1st one that popped up. I began walking 15 min. a day and increased it to 30 min. I then incorporated your step videos. The more I did the the stronger I got. Now I workout 5 days a week and do your step aerobics 3 times a week. You’re videos and kind words keep me motivated. There are times when I just wanted to give up but then all of a sudden on cue I'd hear you say “you are strong” or “you have to take care of you”, and it makes me push even harder.
My name is Lisa, I'm 37, a wife and mum of 2 from the UK. Starting weight 253.5 lbs. I suffer from depression and one day thought how could I get my lazy butt off the sofa and do some exercise. I scanned through YouTube and found Jenny Ford, I sweat buckets. It gave me so much energy, that I did it again AND the dancing ones too. I ended up buying a step, so I could participate in all the step workouts. In September, I started Slimming World. I have lost 73 lbs in 8 months.
I would like to share my success story with you. 9 months ago I started weight watchers and at the same time I started doing step to your videos on YouTube. Today I weigh a whole 97 lbs lighter and I am nearly at my target and it's thanks to you with your step videos that has helped me achieve this amazing weight loss. -Many thanks Nigel
Four generations working out together: Jessamy (34) is a busy mom of five, with her mom Teresa (56), grandmother Janice (75), and daughter. Jessamy said: "I love your workouts. I got a $50 step for my birthday on February 1st and have been stepping with you 5 days a week since then. I have lost 6 pounds with a 40 pound goal! The 30 minute workouts are perfect for me. I am a mom of 5 and cannot afford the time it takes to drive to a gym to workout everyday but with your workouts, I have been successful! It’s been a lifesaver. My 55 year old mom has started to work out with you too and my grandma who is 78. She doesn’t use a step but is really enjoying following on the ground with you!"
It's not a before and after...It's a Before and For Now....I am wearing the same shirt in both pictures, only I am 45 pounds lighter in the second one. I am forever grateful that I found Jenny Ford Fitness on YouTube! I love getting up in the mornings and starting my day with Jenny! Thank you for all that you do for us!! -Cheryl Crane
I have lived away from my home country of Australia for the last 6 years and I gained a lot of weight due. I couldn't bear to look at photos of myself anymore so I decided to make a change. I fell in love with your step aerobics workouts as soon as I started trying them. They are easy to follow and so much fun! It's taken me a year but I've lost a total of 64 lbs. I look and feel great, and owe a big part of it to your videos! I always look forward to your new videos. -Nicole Kahler-Viene Pak Chong, Thailand (formerly, Gold Coast, Australia)
My fitness journey began 6 months ago. I was the heaviest that I'd ever been. I'm 5'6"and was hovering between 175 and 180. We watch keeping up with the Kardashians. Khloe has lost a lot of weight. I saw her doing step workouts. I ordered a step and found you. I continued to do your step workouts everyday. I've lost a total of 24 lbs, and got all new clothes because I had to! Lol! Thank you for making me love myself again. You really make a difference in this world! -Kristeejo Brant
I started my weight loss journey 7 weeks ago. With changing my diet and using your workout videos daily, I'm down 15 lbs and counting! I'm off to a great start. Thank you for such enjoyable videos that make working out fun.
17 weeks of Jenny Ford Fitness step everyday, healthy eating, weight training 3x/week = 30 lb loss! Thanks Jenny Ford! -Laurie Tardiff
Hi Jenny, I've been working out with you for the last 6 months and have lost 50 pounds! I can't get to a gym due to work, a long commute and my two small children so being able to workout in my own home has been amazing. When I first started I could barely get through 10 minutes without feeling like I was having a heart attack. Now I get through 45 to an hour and feel great! Your Stepping Friend, Mary Rose Rutikanga
Success story sent in from Andrew's wife, Sara: So proud of my honey and all his success. 3 years ago we both started losing weight slowly. He has lost a total of 93.2 pounds, 70 of which he completed in only 1 year by being a strict calorie counter with MyFitnessPal (an app) and by religiously working out to Jenny Ford's workouts. His dedication is astounding! -La Crescenta, California
Jenny, Your workouts are the highlight of my workout days (besides weight lifting with my husband). Instead of seeking to just "lose weight", I was inspired by America Ninja Warrior, and my new goal is to accomplish one pull up (or one chin up) unassisted. I've got a long journey but your workouts have become an integral part of that journey. Since October, I've lost 39 lbs. You're a bright shining star and a blessing to all of us ladies! God bless you! -SC Stephensen
Hi Jenny!!! I'm still on my Weight Watchers journey and I still continue to do your workouts almost every day. As of Tuesday I have made it to 88 lbs lost in just over 8 months! I have NEVER been under 154 lbs as an adult so I'm feeling so very proud of myself right now! Again, I need to thank you for helping me get to where I am today!!!
I have lost 20 kg (44 pounds) and a lot of it was thanks to you. Jenny your online workouts are the best, so much fun. The habits I've created are lifelong ones and I will be keeping to them. I would start slowly, couldn't keep up at first or finish the exercise routine, but bit by bit did more and more! The main thing is don't be to obsessed with the moves. Get moving and enjoy. If I start to feel uncomfortable, I gradually stop or modify. Every bit of movement helps. Also I eat plenty more vegetables, eggs, and fruit. If I buy chips I check the servings on the pack and I divide them into freezer bags so it's one serving per pack. I will never deprive myself. -Erlina Meade
Hi, my name is Kasia and I come from Poland. I want to thank you for your great workouts. Thanks to you and your exercises I have lost 77 pounds in 7 months. You are amazing and I really like your energy. I'm not finish yet but I just wanna say that you are my inspiration. So thank you again!!
My name is Rebecca Hogg. I am 41 years old. When I started doing Jenny's workouts I was amazed to I felt toned, energized and motivated to keep going! I found her workouts easy to follow and uplifting. Thanks to Jenny and her amazing workouts I have been able to lose over 70 lbs in a year. I workout with Jenny 5 to 6 days a week. I feel like I'm working out with a friend. I can't thank Jenny enough for changing my health and changing my life!
Hi Jenny, I’m writing to your from Poland. I have 3 children. When my youngest one graduated, I found your step on YouTube. It’s been 6 months and thanks to your workouts I’ve lost 44 pounds. I think I will never cease to love step thanks to you. -Magda
Hi Jenny, My partner and I had recently moved into a new house that wasn't terribly close to a gym so it was easy to ignore it. I bought an Original Step and started looking for videos from my local library and was quickly discouraged. I found your 'Step by Step' workout on YouTube and used that for a while. My lightest weight was 235 lbs in 2010. Last year I was up to 285 lbs, and since working out with your videos, I'm down to 239 lbs. I just wanted you to know how much of an impact your work has made on my life so far. Cheers, Aaron Douglas (Milwaukee, WI)
Hey there. I just wanted to say thank you so much for your amazing step work outs. You helped me lose a total of 66 lbs! In 2012 I was over 200 lbs, 3 years and two babies later I'm down 66 lbs!
Thank you, Tina Jo
Since last year, I've lost 15 pounds, and I'm in the best shape of my life. I've stepped with you at least three times per week. Your personality is winning and you keep me motivated with your positive attitude. I always feel better when I spend time with you. I'm sharing this photo, which isn't the best, but there is a good reason I like it. We are on a trip to New Orleans, which is a walking town. It shows how I am now strong enough to carry my 34 pound son around town and have a great time. Not be winded at all. -Rachel Geisler
With your fitness videos from YouTube and your help I’ve lost 60 lbs. Thank you! Now my goal is to reach 66 lbs lost. Thanks to your videos, it really works. I thank you for your great motivation. -Denise
4 months with 60 minutes of Jenny Ford's workouts daily (Marching with Moves and cardio), Myfitnesspal app to help with calorie counting, and 35 lbs lost. Before and now pictures. Thank you so much Jenny Ford. -Claire Danielle Oyitch
Over 7 years ago, my husband and I changed our eating habits and began exercising. In the process we learned weight loss and health wasn't just something you do short term, but it is a lifestyle you adopt and attend to regularly. After being overweight my entire life, I finally felt comfortable in my body. Part of my journey has been finding exercises that keep me motivated, engaged and safe. As a double arm amputee with knee injuries, I found Jenny's step and marching workouts not only challenge me, but are easily adapted for personal circumstances. When I re-injured my knee a couple years ago I wondered if I would ever step again! I loved doing Jenny's step workouts. I started small with her aerobic workouts and thankfully was able to build back up to stepping! I appreciate how Jenny encourages you to do what feels good. Sometimes I can push harder than other days and that's okay! -Annae Jones
Love you Jenny. -R Ma
