Janelle Trujillo is a personal trainer, group fitness instructor, nutrition coach, Oxygen coach and the creator of Why Wellness. She has over 20 years of experience in the fitness industry and is a former pro figure competitor.
Trujilo's athletic background began in high school, but her passion for fitness came after a long struggle with an eating disorder. "The truth is, this experience changed my life and my focus forever," she said. Trujilo explains that her journey into fitness started with two years of trying to be what she thought was "healthy," but she soon realized that her pattern of over-exercising and under-eating would nearly kill her.
When Janelle recovered and was given a second chance at life, she knew that she wanted to help others find health and joy in the journey of being healthy — in both mind and body. Trujilo solidified her passion by getting a bachelors of science in kinesiology, and personal training and nutrition certifications. "Now, after 20 years in the industry," she said, "I have been able to work with thousands of people, helping them find health in both body and mind."
