Fit Bottommed Girls
Jenn and Erin met while they were both working for a magazine publishing company in the Kansas City area. They quickly noticed the big similarities in their lives: Both lived in Lawrence, Kansas, while their boyfriends were attending graduate school, and both endured a lengthy 50-minute commute. Once they became carpooling buddies, they realized that not only were they saving the planet one tank of gas at time, but they were also forming a fast and lasting friendship. Among dissecting all aspects of life, from reality TV to their existential crises, fitness was always a topic of conversation on those commutes. Health nut Jenn would keep Erin motivated when workout motivation was lacking, and the two would enjoy noon walks and Zumba classes together. It wasn’t until Erin sadly moved states away that the pair came up with the idea of a fitness blog—effectively marrying their love of fitness with their love of writing.
Launched in May 2008, the Fit Bottomed Girls website features multiple weekday posts with fresh fitness content for real women and girls (and even the guys) interested in increasing their health through physical activity and sensible eating. The blog offers workout DVD reviews—including both new releases and Retro Reviews—fitness news, new product information, personal accounts of their exercise endeavors, tidbits on healthy food, workout music suggestions and playlists, and fitness humor. The FBGs pride themselves on their honest reviews and aren’t afraid to tell it like it is.
With over 15 years of experience in the field, Jenn Giles is all about health and wellness. She has a dual master’s degree in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology from Columbia University. She is a Registered Dietitian (RD) and is a Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD). She supplements all of this with her spin instructor certification and USATriathlon Level I Coach Certification.
Jennifer is passionate (actually obsessed) about the sport of triathlon. She has been personally participating in triathlons since 2000 and running road races since 1992. She is a two-time Ironman finisher and has completed countless numerous marathons. She has been a member of Power Bar Team Elite since 2006, and competed as a member of the 2006 Aquaphor/Active.com Sponsored Athlete Team. She was ranked as USAT All American Honorable mention in 2006 and 2011. Jennifer does all of this along side of her husband, Patrick, who is an equally accomplished triathlete and runner. They try as hard as they can to do all of their training and racing together.
Jennifer will tell you that her most important, most rewarding and most challenging job is as a mother of four. As a mother of four young children, she knows first hand the challenges of maintaining optimal fitness, overall good health and achieving goals while raising a family. And don’t argue with her that nutrition is not the cornerstone of that!!
Most importantly Jennifer knows how to motivate, inspire and challenge athletes based on their own abilities, strengths and everyday lifestyles. She believes there is an athlete in everyone-no matter what your abilities are – and if those abilities are many…then there is an even better athlete in there!
