When Alicia Jones lost weight and found a healthy lifestyle without fad diets or punishing herself with exercise, she felt passionate about sharing how to do this with others.
After maintaining her own healthy weight loss for over 20 years, and while finishing her B.A in Kinesiology, she opened her first fitness company.
“I’ve always wanted to work with people who recognized that fitness was more than just improving how you look.” Alicia says, “It’s about being beautiful, healthy, and strong from the inside out so you can enjoy your best life and create your best years.”
Alicia feels passionate that each person is unique, and not just a number. “I don't believe that each woman should be a specific size or follow the exact same fitness and weight loss formula. We are all unique, and we deserve to find a plan that fits our lifestyles.”
While working as a fitness coach, she began gravitating towards helping women in their 50s at the gym. It was completely refreshing.
The more she focused her attention on serving only them, the more they began to share their lives with her- concerts they went to with their girlfriends, fun family vacations they were organizing, the time they’d spend playing with their grandbabies, their upcoming retirement plans. She became inspired by their outgoing drive to create enjoyment and build freedom into what they were doing with their lives.
Their stories and adventures gave Alicia a whole different perspective on life. She quickly became 100% committed to helping women over 50 feel as healthy and energized as they could be.
In 2017, Alicia decided to take a major leap and get serious about the online world. On a dream trip to Italy where she went to focus solely on online coaching (and traveling, one of her life’s passions) she landed her first-ever online client! The rest, they say, is history.
Alicia is committed to health and living a healthy adventurous life and her passion is to help others achieve the same. Find out more on how to do this at aliciajoneshealthyliving.com and read her informative blog https://aliciajoneshealthyliving.com/my-story-dedicated-to-all-women-over-50/
