Being an owner and/or director at a child care center can be very rewarding; but it can also be incredibly stressful. 

Making sure you have good stress resilience and maintain a healthy lifestyle can directly impact your daily life. In today’s episode we are joined by personal trainer, Jennifer Schmit. She talks not only about your physical health, but your overall wellness and things you can do while you are at work to maintain a healthy lifestyle! 

We also discuss ways that a child care organization can build health and wellness into their culture to help build stress resilience and model healthy living.

Listen to all that and more in today’s podcast!

After going through her own drastic transformation (losing over 70 pounds - pictures below), Jennifer became passionate about helping people understand the importance of their health and well-being. It was after that transformation in 2015 that she became a certified trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Since her certification, she works at a boot-camp style gym helping others transform their health. It is also that passion that makes her continue taking courses and classes for different certifications to further her knowledge in the fitness field. Fitness and health continues to be her life motivation.
