Eileen Jones

Eileen Jones

Health & Fitness Specialist

Education: Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion with a Minor in Nutrition; Certified Health Education Specialist
Experience:Fitness Specialist for Countryside YMCA, 2018
Wellness Philosophy:Your body fights to keep you alive every day. Literally, every second your cells are fighting to keep you healthy. When you remove appearance from the equation and approach fitness with a focus on what your body can do, a light inside of you flickers. Your legs get stronger, your runs get faster, and each workout becomes a chance to celebrate your body instead of criticizing it. I believe that fitness has the power to transform lives and increase happiness. Imagine what you could do if you let go of your internal fears and judgments, and simply appreciated your amazing body.
