Born In: Illinois
With her rippled muscles, toned abs, and a physique to-die-for, American fitness model and personal trainer Jennifer “Jen” Widerstrom is surely a popular name among the fitness enthusiasts. Though widely admired for her super-sexy body, Jen insists that people should adopt a regular fitness regime primarily for the health aspect—the sexiness is just an added benefit! Best known for her role in the NBC's long-running and hit series, ‘The Biggest Loser’ where she serves as a body coach, the enthusiastic trainer not only guides the participants through a well-planned exercise regime, but also provides the required emotional support to them during their journey to a fitter body. Behind all this popularity is the story of her foray into the world of fitness. As a little girl, she grew up listening to her fitness-enthusiast dad telling her about some of bodybuilding’s most iconic figures including Arnold Schwarzenegger and Franco Columbu. Inspired by her father, she started lifting weight in the family basement when she was still quite young. And this, no doubt, paved the way for the unconventional career she chose on growing up!
