I live a life of passion, optimism and the endless embrace of fire.
My name is Bry Jensen, I am a 25 year old published fitness model and writer from Vancouver BC, and I am dedicated to the fit lifestyle with my heart and soul.
I grew up with an interest in activity. As a child, I was involved with swimming, dance, gymnastics, figure skating and martial arts, just to name a few. However, throughout my life, I have dealt with a limiting lung problem – I have diminished lung capacity as a result of scar tissue caused by a whooping cough lung tear in my childhood, and has made cardio extremely difficult. As a result, my teen years were increasingly sedentary, to the point where at 19, a good flight of stairs left me winded and woozy. I have also dealt with extreme insomnia from a very young age, and with no physical activity in my life, it was draining.
It was then that I decided I needed to make a change if I were to continue with a high-energy life. So I began my fitness pursuit in July of 2009, and in a very short time, I had not only changed my health, my strength and my body, but I had developed a life long passion for what I was doing. After that, the sky was the limit!
My goals are simple: I want to be the living embodiment of my passions; I want to achieve maximum fitness and elite health. I want to be stronger so that I can lift jaw-dropping numbers and smile while doing it. Most of all, I want to inspire. I want to set a standard that motivates others to achieve their personal bests, and push themselves beyond. I want to contribute to positive healthy body images, and cheer on everyone!
I believe the only way to approach fitness is with a positive, open attitude. Everyone starts somewhere, and it really doesn’t matter where. It is about the journey, and the goals. You can get to where you want to be, from anywhere, as long as you are willing to put in the effort and the dedication. And it is my personal belief that it is our responsibility as a community to facilitate and help others to their goals when it is possible to do so. (Have a goal? Comment or contact me and I’ll do what I can to help you achieve it!)
