If we lack the mental fortitude to tackle stressful situations head-on, stress can wreak havoc on our well-being. Building up our mental and emotional reserves is essential for navigating such challenges successfully. Through the cultivation of both mental and physical strength, we enhance our resilience, empowering us to conquer life's hurdles with confidence.

Engaging in regular exercise not only offers immediate relief from anxiety but also nurtures a lasting shield against stress and anxiety's detrimental effects. By consistently engaging in physical activities, we develop valuable coping mechanisms and techniques for regulating our emotions, equipping us to confront life's trials more effectively. Training our nervous system to exhibit resilience and to swiftly recover becomes attainable through self-care practices and calming strategies.

Jenn Zerling, also known as "JZ," stands as a Fitness and Age Management Expert, as well as a devoted mother of two. She authored the book "Breaking the Chains of Obesity, 107 Tools," and has established the JZ Fitness Lifestyle course. Despite a history steeped in athletic endeavors, her childhood nutrition left much to be desired, influencing her daily health decisions. Her personal journey, combined with her international credentials in obesity management, imparts a deep understanding of the struggles individuals face. 

JZ's educational background encompasses a master's degree in Kinesiology and over 13 years of experience in clinical nutrition and fitness within the age management sector. Her career spans roles in managing medical weight loss clinics. Presently, she leads through her company, JZ Fitness, and collaborates with prominent physicians in Age Management Medicine, overseeing weight loss and optimal aging for numerous patients. Notably, she serves as an Orangetheory Fitness coach, the resident nutritionist for Orangetheory Fitness studios in Los Angeles, and the fitness programmer for Matthew McConaughey's not-for-profit venture, JK Livin, which operates in multiple high schools nationwide.

Beneath JZ's impressive professional facade lies a personal narrative of enduring tremendous stress from the summer of 2022 to March 2023. Throughout this period, she managed the intricate balance of maintaining a 70+ hour workweek while remaining a devoted presence in the lives of her children, both under the age of 5. The past year has encompassed a transformative journey for both JZ and her family, encapsulating challenges and triumphs alike.
