Meet Noni Jenkins
Hi I'm Noni, Founder of THERMOfit.
Honestly, until Thermomix came into my life I was on the 'Below Average' end of the cooking skills scale! Seriously... I used to cook from all things packets, using pre-made sauces etc and I had no idea how to make my own dishes and create flavours using fresh herbs, spices or other ingredients. I had ZERO creativity and assumed that anything I tried to make would end up a fail so I stuck to the same old meat and 3 vegetables for a very long time!
I have always eaten fairly healthy growing up and always been sporty but never a 'Gym Go-er' until I became a Personal Trainer in 2009 and began my journey in Health and Fitness. The PT studio I worked for was more like a Weight Loss coaching Centre then a Gym as it focused as heavily on Nutrition/Eating for weight loss as it did on the Exercise component. Solidifying that belief that it is an 80:20 Eating to Exercise ratio for results (forever grateful for that belief).
Suddenly I was coaching clients to achieve sustainable weight loss and having EPIC results all around. I had totally found my Passion in life... Helping and supporting people to positively change their lives through Education, Eating and Exercise. Although I could now teach people WHAT to eat, I still couldn't help them with the HOW to create it.
In 2013 I went to a Thermomix demonstration and my life was complete from there I had found the missing piece of the puzzle... I became a Thermo Consultant on the side of my Personal Training and this completely flipped the ''no cooking skills'' part of me. Over the next 5 years, I learnt SHIT LOADS about the machine and in general how to create flavours and built my confidence cooking new things without the fear of failure that I used to have in the kitchen.
I then decided to put all of my knowledge and passions together to create THERMOfit (Coaching, Personal Training, Eating, Exercise and my new found passion- COOKING!)
THERMOfit was created as a result of the way I was using my Thermomix to eat based on the knowledge and experience I had in health and nutrition from working with clients over the last 10 years. Now I could help not only people local to me on a 1 on 1 basis but for anyone anywhere with a Thermomix.
I ultimately gave up PT & Consulting and went Full-Time THERMOfit because now all my passions were under the one roof and everyone was just LOVING IT.
Thanks for reading if you made it all the way to the end of this mini book.
