The Underdog

Meet The Disheartened…

This person has struggled with weight, health, and fitness for most of their life. They have tried every fad diet, miracle pill, and as-seen-on-tv exercise gadget. The Disheartened may have lost weight; yo-yo-ing up and down over the years, but has never achieved real wellness and has never been able to sustain any changes in lifestyle. This person has read every article on fitness and weight loss, but still feels like they know nothing at all. They are always looking for a quick-fix, some magic key that will finally help them achieve their goals.

Or perhaps this person has never tried a diet or hasn’t worked out before. Perhaps they come from a family that never understood healthy eating and nutrition. Perhaps they have used food to hide, gain comfort, provide entertainment and this person never knew any better. Maybe this person is ready to explore health and wellness for the first time, to feel good and strong, but they have no experience with meal plans or gyms and do not even know where to start.


The First 30 Days (weeks 1-4)

Welcome to the beginning of your journey! You’ve got this. You will have the teachings, the tools, and the support right at your fingertips. It is time to uncover the true champion within!
Your first 30 days are vital for your sustained success throughout the 12 weeks. You can expect:
Daily phone check-ins for accountability, encouragement, and progress tracking
To create momentum that will spur you on to strive harder and longer
To develop healthier habits that will impact your overall feeling of wellness and motivate you when the journey gets tough
These are the components of your journey in the first four weeks
  1. FITNESS: the focus here is to...
  • Establish a Baseline- Your initial meeting will be to assess and document where you are today. If you are in Calgary, we will do a Fit3D body scan and analysis gaining insight into your weight, lean body mass, general body measurements, and where your weight is distributed. 
  • Set SMART Goals- Setting goals helps you quantify and measure exactly what you want to achieve, and visualize the changes you want to make.
  • Build a Fitness Foundation- These first weeks will activate major and minor muscle groups, strengthen your core, and jumpstart your cardiovascular fitness. We will strive to introduce structure with a simple and straightforward exercise strategy.
  1. NUTRITION: the focus here is to...
  • Complete a comprehensive and honest nutrition intake, journal and discuss current eating habits, disclose allergies and food preferences, and build a customized eating plan. The Jensen Wellness approach to nutrition focuses on balanced meals and snacks of Whole Foods, with optimal portions of healthy fats, lean proteins, and carbohydrates. Your eating strategy will be simple and easy to follow, address meal timing, and be suitable for all ages.
  1. STRESS MANAGEMENT: the focus here is to...
  • Address all of the lifestyle habits that create barriers to your success. With a simplified structure for workouts and nutrition, you will find success very quickly in the way you feel, how you sleep, and your energy and you will even see success on your bathroom scale. The harmony you will feel when improving your activity, your eating, your sleep, and feeling your success will undoubtedly lead to reduced stress and better mental health.
  1. ROUTINE & STRUCTURE: the focus here is...
  • Committing to the system and sticking to the process. Your tailored workout plan is designed to help you meet your goals. We will lay out the routine and structure elements to integrate with your lifestyle, making it easier to stay on track.

Can You Relate?

We have created four personas to illustrate the possibilities, define the journeys, and model the success that is attainable for anyone seeking to achieve complete health and wellness. Everyone’s story and life path are unique, but we can all empathize with feeling purposeless, tired, and stressed out at some point in our lives. Can you relate to any of these personas?

The Next 30 Days (weeks 5-8)

Here you are! You made it through the first stretch and have replaced some poor habits with healthier ones. You feel stronger and lighter and you feel less dejected; a bit more capable, competent, and maybe even optimistic. This time, it really might work! You are ready for some new challenges; ready to add some intensity to your program. 

Your next 30 days are about maintaining your momentum, celebrating your successes, and upping the ante. You can expect:

  • The continued support of the Jensen Community
  • The elevated intensity in your fitness program
  • Regular accountability check-ins

These are the components of your journey for the middle four weeks

  1. FITNESS: the focus here is to...
  • Make the most of your stronger body with more intense workouts. Leverage your growing excitement and enthusiasm for fitness to push a little harder, stay a little longer, and lift a little more.
  1. NUTRITION: the focus here is to...
  • Enjoy healthy eating. The perceived struggle of giving up your favourite foods has been replaced with an appetite for clean, whole foods that fuel your body and improve every aspect of your life. Try some new recipes and meal ideas.
  1. STRESS MANAGEMENT: the focus here is to...
  • Stay in balance. You should be sleeping better and feeling energized. Taking control of your wellness is empowering and you feel less stressed and more prepared to face life’s challenges.
  1. ROUTINE & STRUCTURE: the focus here is...
  • Embracing the routine. You know the structure of your nutrition and fitness programs well by now and you can confidently adapt and refine the routine here and there to make it work for you and your lifestyle.
