Whitney Jones is a mother of two boys, 4-time fitness Olympian, 12-time Arnold Classic athlete, competition choreographer and trainer. She is also the owner of the Pro Physiques gym, the largest fitness gym in Arizona. She’s always been into sports and getting strong and this persisted all the way to college. Her active lifestyle was paused after graduation due to working 60-hour weeks at an advertising agency, but resumed after she got married and had a family. She realized that being a workaholic just wasn’t her definition of what life was about. She eventually decided to pursue her desire to become fit and her interest in teaching others.
In today’s episode, Whitney opens up about what it’s like to be a female bodybuilder and competitor, and her thoughts on her many critics and online haters. She also shares her story on what her life was like before she became who she is now, how her methods are different than most trainers, and tips for those who want to get fit and lean the safe way.
