“Meeting with Jennie always leaves me feeling inspired to take better care of myself, be true to my inner callings and to have fun along the way.”
As a professional singer, my livelihood depends on my ability to phonate for hours with brilliance and great stamina. My state of health can become a source of real anxiety and stress if and when illness strikes. It is so important to do whatever I can to take charge of my health, stay in shape and prevent illnesses (chronic disease, allergies or those bothersome colds) before they occur. There is enough pressure on my shoulders in the rest of my life without having to worry about getting sick and the domino effects that illnesses can cause. Jennie is a fabulous human being. She’s full of energy and fun, while still remaining thoughtful, perceptive and caring. Meeting with Jennie always leaves me feeling inspired to take better care of myself, be true to my inner callings and to have fun along the way. I believe anyone (performer or otherwise) looking to better his or her health should consider working with Jennie. In striving for optimum health we work towards living life to the fullest, bringing that vibrancy to every part of our personal and professional lives.

“Jennie Fagen not only gives her knowledge, she gives her care.”
Jennie Fagen not only gives her knowledge, she gives her care. She catered our sessions to my needs, and she encouraged and cheered me on for the entire 90 day process.
Her performing background helped tremendously with a level of understanding that other health coaches may not have. If you are looking for an incredible human who knows her stuff about eating healthy-Jennie is your gal!

“With Jennie’s coaching I was able to make some awesome strides in both my health and performance.”
“There is a lot of pseudoscience floating around the musical community, and consulting with Jennie served to clear up a lot of those myths. Because I spend a lot of time performing at clubs and bars, forming good nutritional habits is particularly difficult, but with Jennie’s coaching I was able to make some awesome strides in both my health and performance. My colleagues have noticed my new proclivity to show up to gigs with avocado, kale, and tomato sandwiches in my trombone case, and I have noticed a greater focus and energy level throughout my performances!
Jennie introduced me to aspects of nutrition I hadn’t thought about, such as how to balance acids and alkalines, and the difference between soluble and insoluble fibers. I noticed a significant difference in my digestion and energy level within the first two weeks.”
James Hall, Trombonist & Composer
“Jennie doesn’t give you rules or impose restrictions onto you and your individual lifestyle – she listens to what you want.”
“It’s hard to ask for help sometimes – especially when it comes to nutrition…. I think we say to ourselves…. “Shouldn’t I already know how to feed myself better?”
Jennie makes it SO easy to ask for help. She doesn’t give you rules or impose restrictions onto you and your individual lifestyle – she listens to what you want in your life, in your career, expect from your body, and she empowers you to get what You Want.
Jennie eagerly shares her wisdom and is super excited to enable you have a better day, better health, better rest and a better performance. Her excitement is contagious, and the success feels all the greater with her support and guidance!”

Life is brighter and tastier with Jennie by your side.
“Jennie is full of light, love, warmth, talent, enthusiasm and knowledge. She is one of my trusted ears when I crave feedback and understanding. Plus, Jennie taught me how to massage my kale and how to toast my groats! Life is brighter and tastier with Jennie by your side.”

“Jennie’s super friendly and helpful and just gives me that warm fuzzy feeling every time I see her.”
“Working in the restaurant industry, it’s really hard to maintain healthy eating habits. Between the odd hours and pretty much eating out every meal there isn’t much choice of what I consume. Jennie has been really helpful in getting me to see that it’s not that hard to incorporate healthy practices into my daily life, even if it’s just one little thing. Knowing that I get overwhelmed by going grocery shopping, Jennie invited me on a tour of a great natural food market on the west side. She led me around and explained all sorts of interesting things that I never knew before. She made me feel like I could actual tackle the task of grocery shopping and come home with real, healthy food (instead of my normal crackers and soup!) I’d highly recommend Jennie to anyone that’s even mildly interested in getting their eating habits on track. Jennie’s super friendly and helpful and just gives me that warm fuzzy feeling every time I see her.”

“I feel much more in tune with my whole self, my mind and my body.”
Since I have been working with Jennie I have noticed that I have sooo much more energy. I’m much more aware of how my body feels when I eat a certain way, and what foods make me feel good. I have a clear health path for myself and much more control over what I am putting into my body. I feel much more in tune with my whole self, my mind and my body. I’m a much more positive person and that has benefited me in my personal life and my career. Being a small business owner I noticed that the fatigue and crankiness I was feeling was affecting my staff and the relationship I was having with them. Once I started to understand why I was in the moods I was in because of the way I was taking care of myself I was able to start making more positive changes in my life and have been benefiting form the healthy relationships I have been developing.
I would absolutely recommend Jennie to anyone because of all the positive influence she has made on my life. Jennie is an absolute pleasure to work with– she is funny, caring, and when I need some one to reel me back in and stay on track with my health plan, she does so in a way with out making you feel bad about yourself.

“Jennie is full of exuberance and I am pretty sure her default facial expression is a smile.”
I always thought my lifestyle was “healthy enough.” I am a former athlete so I work out regularly and enjoy a fair amount of fruits and vegetables. After just a few meetings with the lovely Jennie Fagen, I discovered how easy – and fun – it is to help kick-start my body’s natural functions through good nutrition. My energy pre and post workout has improved and overall, I feel like a much happier and alkalized (emphasis Jennie) human being. Jennie is full of exuberance and I am pretty sure her default facial expression is a smile, which in itself is proof that she is living the lifestyle she wants for all of her clients!

“Jennie is incredibly knowledgable, intuitive, supportive, and realistic about people’s different needs and lifestyles. Her coaching has extended far beyond my eating habits.”
A native Californian, prior to working with Jennie I felt I knew plenty about nutrition, and could coach myself if I felt my body was out of balance, physically, nutritionally, and spiritually. However, at that time I was experiencing unexplained diaphragm pain, was a smoker desperate to quit, and was struggling with maintaining my weight. I felt stuck and wasn’t sure what to do.
I was skeptical about having a nutrition coach-as I stated prior, Californians are typically bred to be healthy-however, after consulting with Jennie one time, her holistic approach to health intrigued me. I figured I had nothing to lose.
Through her six month coaching, I succeeded in achieving ALL of my goals!! I quit smoking, I re-incorporated an abundance of vegetables into my diet, found additional ways to exercise, and managed to maintain and even lose some weight (which is challenging post smoking). Additionally, I surprised myself by learning a TON about nutrition that I hadn’t anticipated.
What was most valuable however, was the experiencing of having a coach. Jennie exemplified how our eating and nutrition habits mirror our relationship to ourselves, and she provided a warm, containing, and fun place in which to explore this. Jennie is incredibly knowledgable, intuitive, supportive, and realistic about people’s different needs and lifestyles. Her coaching has extended far beyond my eating habits.
I would highly recommend her as a coach!!

“Jennie’s a great gal–genuinely caring, she’s your own personal cheerleader, counselor, and friend all wrapped into one.”
I had some hesitations about talking to someone about my eating habits. Being held accountable to someone for what I put in my body was a scary thing! But since working with Jennie I’ve lost almost 30lbs and I’m MUCH more conscious of WHAT I eat and how MUCH I eat. Jennie’s a great gal–genuinely caring, she’s your own personal cheerleader, counselor, and friend all wrapped into one. I always ended our sessions feeling like I had just had a hundred hugs and pats on the back! She makes you feel like anything is possible, and with her gentle coaching it is!
