In the spirit of badass, I have re-invited a guest for the first time ever on this podcast. I’m really excited to sit down again with my very dear old friend, Jen Oliver. Jen’s energy is compelling and her attitude is so positive. She is the founder of Love FitMama and author of the new book, The Love FitMama Way. Jen’s mission in life is to empower women — postpartum women in particular — to find themselves and their inner strength. She also teaches women how to harness a mindset that brings them abundance, how to discover play every single day, and how to create this coherence and energy with respect to your heart and capacity to love.
This interview was so amazing and I hope you’ll stay tuned to listen to everything my good friend Jen Oliver has to say. We spent time talking about the physiological implications of our attitude and mindset, our capacity to actually control the electromagnetic field around our heart, and ideas of how we get to a mindset that brings us positivity, gratitude, and abundance on a daily basis. Jen is smart, articulate, and has a lot to say about empowering women!

More About Jen Oliver
Jen is the founder and CEO of FitMama. Jen learned early on that being a FitMama all starts with LOVE and created a movement of empowering women to love their bodies and love their lives. She is a certified Bellies Inc. trainer and specializes in the pre- and post-natal journey of building a solid foundation in the body by pre-habbing and re-habbing the core.
Jen has completed a Master’s degree in Exercise and Healthy Psychology at McMaster University and co-founded LivferU Personal Management Consulting in 2008. She continues to train and coach individuals to achieve their goals and has been a sought-after speaker throughout Canada.
Jen’s athleticism and love for sports led her to pursue her undergraduate education at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario while playing five years of varsity basketball. After Graduating with two Bachelors degrees, one in Honours Psychology and one in Physical and Health Education, Jen went on to work in the field of health and fitness. Her industry career included personal training, fitness instruction, nutrition coaching, fitness competing, educating others through health, nutrition and wellness seminars and fitness club management.
Jen believes nutrition is the cornerstone of optimal health and without the proper nutrients to create healthy brain chemistry, it is impossible to be your best for yourself or those around you.
