004. All Things Body Positivity & Fitness With Jenna Doak

Jenna Doak gives us an alternative way of looking at body positivity and fitness. Body Positive Fitness owner and industry professional, Jenna walks us through her journey in the fitness world and how she has created a safe, positive, and mindful space for all bodies, at all levels and capabilities.
Jenna and Dana discuss how mental health plays a part in their journey with fitness and movement, and how the portrayal of different body types is changing in both society and in pop-culture.

Jenna Doak is a Certified Personal Trainer of 13 years, she works out of multiple locations in Toronto and has her own private studio in Newmarket. Jenna runs a Body Positive Fitness and Yoga business called Body Positive Fitness.

Jenna's relationship with fitness and her body hasn't always been body positive as she strived for the perfect "trainers body" for most of her career. Her ideals about her body and the way it should look were deeply skewed because of the fitness and diet industry expectations. Jenna developed an exercise and eating disorder early in her career that continued into her late twenties. At 26 years old and eight years into her career she was tired of fighting herself and she stumbled across body positivity online. For the next couple years Jenna retaught and unwired her brain of all the expectations she'd believed in. Jenna now teaches clients that fitness and movement shouldn't be about changing our bodies. Jenna has opened up spaces for all bodies, ages and genders to feel comfortable learning movement, lifting and yoga. Jenna takes pride in all of her spaces being 100% judgement free, anti-diet culture and LGBTQ positive.
