Heart Food Podcast | 036 | Jessica Oar – Hormonal fat loss & training, taking unapologetic action, & living powerfully

I’m so excited to have my awesome & talented friend Jessica Oar on the show today. This is one of my favorite episodes to date – it embodies what I believe eating well & moving is about: becoming unapologetically empowered in your own life & body through action & awareness. Jess gives us an incredible amount of practical, actionable, and simple knowledge to care for yourself, grow, hold yourself to a high standard, and be the best & most powerFULL YOU that you can be.

Jess helps motivated women to take unapologetic action in their training and life. She’s the creator of Be PowerFULL Lifestyle Club where women get fit, find their power and lead FULL lives. She specializes in coaching women to achieve hormonal fat-loss and dial into their unique response to food, exercise and their lifestyle. Jess is a mom to two boys, 6 and 4, and coaches daily out of her home gym, just south of Boston.

healing my relationship with food & my body

We cannot make sustainable change with food, our bodies, or our surrounding habits until we honestly explore and get curious about our relationship with each of them. Mindset change is not easy, but so, so worth it.
