Thanks to Janis of JT Fitness and Golf for helping me get back on track! I just turned 50 and am working my way back to my “old”, healthier me. I have a job that either requires a lot of sitting at a desk or traveling – neither of which do you any favors. Janis was able to put together a program to fit in with my travel schedule, incorporate things I like to do and use the equipment that I might have on hand. She also was able to show me modifications that I could do to address my aging knees. The really neat part about this is that we are a thousand miles apart and I can do a workout remotely by use of a training app. Using the ap, the workouts are at my fingertip. Janis is also there to keep me accountable and track my progress. She is always able to answer my questions or come up with an alternative plan when I run into a roadblock. Thanks to Janis for helping me get back on track!
I love having workouts created for me and at the same time, I can do the workouts when it is convenient for me. I don’t have a lot of time each day and these workouts are perfect. I love that each exercise has a video so I can be reminded of how to do them. I love the personal training at my fingertips.
As a mom of 3 with a busy schedule going to the gym became a real challenge. When I did go I would always do the same workout. Total Body Transformation by Janis was the perfect solution. I got to do the workouts at home saving me time and it was personalized so I wasn’t stuck in my normal workout routine. It was so nice to ask her questions and discuss my results as well as my challenges. Her programs give you the personal training we all need without the inconvenience of going to the gym. I highly recommended Janis and JT Fitness and Golf.

About me

My greatest passion has always been to empower women like you to be their best selves – to feel their best and live their best.
Whether this is through healthy eating, teaching about proper ways to exercise, making small changes in your life, and incorporating healthy life strategies, I firmly believe that finding our best body and life is the most beneficial thing any woman can do for herself. Women have huge amount of responsibilities everyday! There are easy strategies to make your life easier.
How did I get my passion for health and wellness? This started when I was young. My family has a very strong history of diabetes as my mom and all of my maternal aunts and uncles have diabetes. Diabetes has affected my cousins as well. High blood pressure, cancer, heart disease, high cholesterol are pervasive throughout my family.
Alcoholism also runs in the family. I grew up with 2 parents who drank all the time, smoked like chimneys, ate unhealthy, and truly paid the price for their unhealthy behaviors. My dad died 7 years ago from lung cancer. He also dealt with high blood pressure, COPD, sleep apnea, digestive issues and being overweight. My dad took tons of meds while he was alive and today my mom takes around 20 pills a day. WOW! Life doesn’t have to be like this. It’s interesting the path that I ended up leading.
I always knew there was something that could be done differently. I definitely didn’t want to follow in their footsteps as I always saw them at the doctor and just dealing with health issues every single day. Who wants to live like this?
This is where I found the purpose for my business. I have been reignited again.
The deal with most disease is – IT IS PREVENTABLE. Type II Diabetes is a LIFESTYLE. There is so much that can be done to prevent so many diseases.
My background:
I grew up in small town USA – Beaver Dam, WI. I enjoyed growing up in a small town, but I was very excited to leave once it was time and find my next adventure. Growing up in a small town taught me some invaluable lessons and I did learn to keep life simple. It really is easier that way.
30 years later, I am still coaching, training and still loving the health and wellness industry with all it can do for people. I have coached hundreds of clients in helping them lose weight and feel great! I believe in guiding others achieve a life-long strategy for healthy living. I have worked with people of all types of issues, ages, and goals.
Please don’t think that taking care of my health is a walk in the park. I’m over 50 and I have to work at staying trim and fit. I work at it everyday.
What I do know is I like to keep things simple. Being healthy and fit does not have to be hard. We just have a tendency to make it hard.
What I know is for me….I love how being fit feels (and you don’t have to look perfect for this to happen). I feel strong and powerful. I want to share my SECRETS with you. I can guide you to find your strong, fit, and powerful SELF again! You will feel like you can take on the world, reach your goals, and know you are living the best life possible.
I am dedicated to helping YOU reach YOUR fitness and health goals.
Prior to owning my own business, I received my Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology. I spent 10 years working in cardiac rehab. After that, I worked in pharmaceutical sales for 14 years. I sold everything under the sun. I will tell you, selling pharmaceuticals was not my passion and ended up being quite the contradictory job. It was time to get back to my passion!
I have always believed in eating healthy and exercise so your body can heal itself. I’ve never felt pharma was the answer. There is a place for pharmaceuticals, but you shouldn’t have to take a bunch of meds every single day!
Having an insider look into this industry gave me fantastic amounts of insight into culturally and socially where most people are in this country when it comes to health. It gave me an education on how to heal and address issues like toxins in our homes and bodies without relying on this industry, therefore, allowing me to help others further.
I would love the opportunity to hear about your goals and challenges. Together, I hope to find you your best life, health and you! I look forward to working with you and helping you reach your amazing goals!

I highly recommended Janis and JT Fitness and Golf.
I used to have a personal trainer that I would see three times a week. When I thought I could do it on my own, I found out I would aimlessly walk around the gym trying to remember what I used to do. With JT Fitness and Golf I didn’t have to worry about that any more. I had my workouts right in front of me all the time and they were easy to follow. She was always willing to adjust the intensity if I needed it. If you want a workout that is customized to fit your needs and your schedule, I highly recommend Body Transformation by Janis.
In just 6 sessions of doing workouts from JT Fitness and Golf, I can tell the difference. I feel stronger, have more energy, and more inner confidence. My balance for dancing has improved. Having someone to be accountable to has made the difference between doing workouts and NOT. I am excited to see visible results too. I know I will at this rate. Thanks Janis for helping me persist through my resistance to try new ways for working out.
I signed up for her 90 day program and it was great. Her videos are easy to follow, and the instructions were clear and concise. It was such an easy to use program! I was able to quickly move through the circuit either before work or after work, which was a nice luxury vs. going to the gym! If you think you’ll go through a virtual program with no accountability... think again!!! Janis is on top of it!!! She is truly by your side every step of the way with texts to provide you support and encouragement!!! You are never left alone!!!Janis is there every step of the way I highly recommend Janis’ program to anyone looking for results in an easy to use virtual training program. Janis is the best at what she does!! Highly recommend!!!
