​Shannon Tenney


​I am a wife, mom of 4, personal trainer, wellness coach and aerobics instructor with the YMCA in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I love spending time and making memories with my family. We enjoy the outdoors, bike rides, swimming and new adventures! I love lifting weights and feeling strong, not only in body but mind and spirit as well. I am an active member of the Women's Ministry team at my church and love my church family dearly. My entire life I have always been involved with kids or fitness, I still thoroughly enjoy both!

I have struggled with weight and obesity the majority of my life. I have starved myself, eaten only chicken rice and broccoli for every meal, gone vegan, high protein, low carb, low fat, tried carb cycling, fasted, juiced, you name it, I've probably tried it. I have watched the scale vacillate up and down and back and forth.  I’ve struggled with body image, self confidence, weakness, depression and much more. I have bought into the diet and fitness industry "gurus" and all their falsities. I have been frustrated and felt so lost and overwhelmed. I have also experienced success! And great FREEDOM! This freedom, hope, love, joy and passion I have gleaned from all of the above experiences drives me to help as many people feeling those things I have so deeply felt. I want people to experience the freedom I feel. What a journey it has been, I feel as though I've found the holy grail. Real life results for my real life, life.

Fat loss, muscle gain, lowered inflammation, adherence and real lifestyle change, all while enjoying my life and the food that I love. I believe the body, mind and spirit function and produce the best results when all are in alignment and working in tandem. Therefore, my coaching style is to consider the whole person. I love connecting and getting to know people. I am honest and vulnerable, down to earth and thankful for all that I've been given and experienced.

If any of the above resonates with you, if you are thinking about change or if you are beyond ready and longing for change, I'd love to talk with you!
