The road to success is paved with failures. We are not defined by them, but grow from them. To be successful at anything that we do, we learn from our own mistakes, and that of others. When choosing the right coach, one might be inclined to pursue the expertise of someone that has years of knowledge, and that looks the part. A simple and basic approach to seeking help. When it comes to knowledge, there are many options for coaches to choose from.
A question to ask yourself may be “Is it only knowledge that I seek?” Or would you prefer to be guided by someone who has had the life experience, has struggled and persevered time and time again to achieve, not only a strong educational foundation, but a healthy perspective on nutrition, fitness, and mental health?
When investing in coaching with Jordan, you’re not only gaining access to her vast knowledge of health and fitness, but, also, her experience in overcoming the personal challenges that she has faced. This combination of information and dedication to her own goals, will shed light to the fact that anyone, struggling within any kind of situation, can make the necessary life changes to achieve their goals.
Jordan Macdonald was born in Calgary Alberta. Knowing at an early age that our health, both mental and physical, are key to living the optimal life, she was very active throughout her junior years. Although, her real journey of struggle started when she attended University in 2014. After holding the overall title for champion wrestler in high school from 2010-2012, she had become less active and thus gained some unwanted weight. Struggling with body image, feelings of unworthiness and self loathing, she resorted to a starvation diet and chasing a number on a scale. Like so many women, she believed that her self worth revolved around being thin.
Being the overcomer that she is, she did not fall into the societal norm, and give into the pressures of her external environment. She made peace with herself, and found sanctuary in training, eating healthy, nutritious foods, and hydrating her body, mind and spirit with self love. She took a step back, assessed her life and asked some very simple, yet pressing questions such as : Am I happy? Do I feel fulfilled? How do I want my life to look/feel? And Most importantly, Am I ready and willing to make the sacrifices necessary to make those changes for good?
Jordans answers to those shocked her, propelling her forward and only looking back reflect on how far she has really come. With her new found passion for life, and eagerness to help those around her, she now holds a Degree in Kinesiology, has been a certified ISSA Personal Trainer and Holistic Nutritionist since 2018 and is a skilled transformation specialist.
