“Over that time I noticed a trend in the women I was working with, they would reach their goal or get pretty close and start to self-sabotage….the Warrior Woman Project, which is now my main focused programme, in helping women get in to the right headspace to understand that they can achieve their results and deserve to have those results.” – Jen Wilson of the Warrior Women Project can help you to get your goals back on track and kickstart the year.

The New Year always comes with the same old half-baked resolutions. I want to get fit. I want to focus on work. I want be happy. These things sound great, and on paper they are, but the reality is that they can be hard to achieve. To make matters worse, not fulfilling these goals can be very disheartening. We find that by having someone in your corner, everything suddenly comes much easier. With guidance and support, you can easily break down each aim into manageable targets, and ace them.
Jen Wilson, from GirlCrew Glasgow, runs the awesomely named Warrior Woman Project, and it’s her job to ensure that you are getting the most out of life. “I hated PE at school, I would have done just about anything to get out of it, team sports and running about outside in the freezing cold were not for me. When I was about 22 I joined a local ladies only gym and used to watch the other women training (I must have looked like a right creep) and learned from them and magazines. When I started to see a change in my shape and started to feel great. I really gained confidence in my body shape and realised that I wanted to change my career and become a trainer.”
Eight years later Jen was finally in the right place, and returned to college to help turn her dream into a reality. After completing a BSc in Sport and Exercise, she set up her own business Freedom In Training. However, all wasn’t right in the world of fitness, and Jen started to notice something worrying. “Over that time I noticed a trend in the women I was working with, they would reach their goal or get pretty close and start to self-sabotage. That got me interested in the psychology of women and why this happened.”
Determined to get to the bottom of this, Jen became an NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) Master Practitioner and created the Warrior Woman Project. This amazing project helps to achieve the results they want in life. The Warrior Women Project helps “…women get in to the right headspace to understand that they can achieve their results and deserve to have those results. My approach to health and fitness is a no BS approach and I teach that balance is key to success.” By working with clients in one to one training, in groups, classes, or online Jen ensures that “…no matter where in the world people are I can help them.” It would seem the hard work is paying off. In December of 2016 Jen published her first book, Become a Warrior Woman 9 Rules to Sort Your Shit. Which she’s “…both terrified and excited about”. And this January she’ll be giving a TEDx talk on “…getting out of your comfort zone (again terrified and excited).”
