In a rare appearance on camera, bare fitness trainer and fitness icon Jennifer Westfeldt appears in a video for a fitness website.
The fitness expert says it is time to let women take their health more seriously, and she encourages women to use their own bodies as tools.
“I think it’s important that we treat our bodies like we want to be treated,” WestfeldT says.
“When I was doing my first bikini, I wanted to look beautiful, and that’s how I was.”
She says she is now a “health nut” and a “naturally fit woman,” and she says she has learned a lot about herself from her experiences.
“I’m not afraid of the body I’m in,” she says.
“In my life I’ve learned that when I do things in a healthy way, I feel like I’m actually improving my health.”
Wearing a bikini has become a trend, but it’s not for everyone.
According to an ABC News survey, about two-thirds of Americans would rather not wear a bikini.
The average American’s body mass index is 32.2, which is about six points higher than the average body fat percentage of 18.7 percent.
In fact, the average American has about six pounds of fat on their body, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Westfeldt’s videos on fitness are not her only work.
In her 2015 book, she also wrote the book, Body Politics, which describes her life in her book, and a film called, Body Fit, which premiered in 2017.
In it, she talks about how she became a mother and a personal trainer.
“My mom was the one who taught me to take care of myself,” WesthoffT says in the video.
“She taught me how to be a mom and a trainer, and I learned how to make healthy choices.”
