About Jessica Cooke

Jessica Cooke

I’m Jessica Cooke, owner of Inspire Fitness, a training studio that’s helped 1,000’s of women transform their healthy, weight  and fitness, & fitness columnist for Easy Parenting.

There’s usually always a trigger when you start to gain weight. For me, it was having kids. For others, it may be a stressful job, a change in routine, it’s different for everyone.

I gained 42 pounds after giving birth to my second child Emily. 42 pounds! Nothing worked for me. Everything that used to worked for me, didn’t anymore. I was completely out of my old reliable routine. I had no time, I was tired all the time.

I had no energy and I just felt gross. All I wanted to do was eat. Eat big portions of food to comfort myself. Pick food off the kids plate. Have too many treat nights.

Food became a massive reward. On top of that, I lost all motivation to work out by myself, and I didn’t have any time to go to the gym. I was stuck. I was running a fitness business, looking after my kids, and my health was suffering. I felt panicky, and very stressed out.

I was feeling down, tired all the time, and I felt fat. None of my clothes fit. I spilled out of everything. And this was on my mind constantly. I lost all my confidence, I was wearing horrible clothes, as nothing else fit. I  had become a shadow of my former self.

No program worked for me, and I tried a lot. But I hate calorie counting, deprivation diets, actually any type of diet I hate, so that ruled out a lot of online programs for me. I couldn’t find anything out there that could help me get back into shape, with this new routine that I had.

So that’s why I created the #Feelgood Movement. I want to help women feel great, feel fit, toned and healthy, but not by calorie counting and diet watching.

I hate calorie counting, point counting and dieting.

I hate diet pills, weight loss supplements, Weight Watchers, Slimming world, and being a slave to the scales.

I tried for years to lose weight, and get to a really healthy place. I thought you had to diet and I was afraid to lift weights. I thought you had to weigh every morsel of food. Did you hear the same? Have you heard that carbs are bad? That you can only lose weight if you go into major calorie deficit?

That’s all lies, and you don’t have to do that. You don’t have to spend hours in the gym, and you don’t need to give up the foods you love.

I chased weight loss as a goal when feeling good should have been my goal.

That’s why I created The #FEELGOOD Movement, to share with you the tools that finally helped me lose the three stone, keep it off, and learn to love myself.

Committed to your success,
