About me.

Hi and welcome to tryHomeFitness my name is Jenny. I have, for many years, enjoyed keeping fit and always felt it was a good fit for me as a career.

Qualifying as Level 2 Certified Personal Trainer I was able to maintain enthusiasm for helping others get fit after the arrival of 2 more mouths to feed.

I loved the gym energy and the quieter great outdoors but training at the gym has become redundant in more ways than one.
It’s now all about maintaining fitness at home and helping others achieve their goals from home.

I discovered running when I was challenged to a 12 mile run by a ‘friend’ at work, years after I thought I had ran my last long race at school. Without going into gory detail I was finished after a couple of miles and staggered the rest of the way.

But for some reason, I was hooked and both of us started entering competitions.

I began researching everything to do with running. I realized that aerobic exercise wasn’t enough so I looked at the strength training side strong more.

After the arrival of two children and I suddenly found less and less time for my own fitness. Eating whatever I wanted was now not an option. Fewer miles and less time at the gym meant more inches.

Friends and especially other women around me were in the same boat so where possible I would encourage them on a home fitness journey together which became the precursor to this blog.

My goal on this site is to provide the best information for those wishing to get fitter at home whatever age but especially if starting out.
