Hello, I’m Jill Bunny and I am the owner of Fit Bunnies Fitness, functional nutritionist, elite trainer, cognitive behavior therapy clinician &speaker advocating total body health to women around the globe, from my home in Canada.
Since a very young age, I was fascinated by the human body. In high-school, I knew I was going to be a fitness trainer and nutritionist… but little did I know, there would be a lot more to the story!
Like many of you, my road to understanding health and fitness on a deeper level, began with my own health crisis. At the age of 30, I went from being the highest ranked IFBB bikini competitor (with 2 Arnold & Olympian titles) in the world and internationally renowned cover model to an MS and Cancer fighter.
I was determined to understand the mechanisms that fed cancer growth and thyroid disease. I wanted to understand how and why the body reacts as it does, and to figure out how to unlock the healing potential using my expertise in nutrition, training and life coaching. I knew by understanding the body at this complexity, would mean I could win my own health battle, walk around with a body I was proud of, and help hundreds of other women!
My journey to understanding food and nutrition started in 2004 through courses in Anatomy, Physiology, Psychology and Nutrition. After graduating with BRSS honors at UNB, I proceeded to gain qualifications in Personal Training & Group Training at C&G London (UK). After returning to Canada, I went back to school in Toronto, and earned the designation of Certified Neuroscience Life Coach. This past year, I graduated from Functional Medicine & enrolled at Laurier University to study Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
My journey through MS, cancer and hypothyroidism, has taught me that we are all unique when it comes to our health and optimal nutrition/training. What makes my body sing might make you sick. Looking at the whole person is the key to healing at Team Bunny.
When I’m not working with clients, you’ll find me training and making new workout programs and providing education on CBT! Checkout CBT MEETS FITNESS – the sister company of Fit Bunnies!
My journey to compete started with turning all My Pain into Power. This new journey was about exploring who I am and accepting all that failed around me. A Broken Marriage, acceptance from my family, eliminating toxic people and toxic judgment, digging deep within and honoring my Self Worth.
In November, my father passed away and that was my breaking point... Turned all my Pain into Power and gave myself a chance to live and fulfill a dream. It took me 35 weeks to conquer my demons, my emotional food cravings, my inner most fears and most importantly to really love myself. I am forever Grateful to my Coach Bunny Jill for guiding me to inner healing that eventually shined on the outside. She allowed me to speak my truth with an open heart with my Progress Reports And kill my workouts like a beast. I am human... I still fall but this journey has allowed me to Balance and Believe in myself and it can only get better from here. I choose to walk this pathway consciously and be aware of my emotions. I choose to Reset my emotional food connection with self healing and using the tools that serve me. I am 38 years old and never did I think it would be feasible for me to accomplish a Goal to compete. Well it’s true what they say...Never say never. Believe, Balance and love yourself...everything will eventually come together.
The 24-week journey has been incredible even with the ups and downs that occurred, some out of my control. Learning to trust in and enjoy the process and see all the progress I’ve made has been life changing. Physically I have noticed a lot of changes but I never expected the mental changes that I’ve experienced. I couldn’t be happier. My anxiety levels have decreased so much and my energy levels have increased. I truly am on a lifelong journey to living my best life.
It is an amazing feeling being apart of Team Bunny. The support from women I have never met is incredible and their journeys are inspiring. I cannot say enough about Jill Bunny. She is more than just my coach. The bond we have made over the past 24 weeks and the friendship we’ve made is for a lifetime. Jill is the most inspiring woman I know. The support she provides on a daily basis keeps me going, especially on days that aren’t so easy. I am truly blessed and grateful to have met Jill and have her as a part of my life and this amazing journey.
I still remember my first phone call with Jill which was essentially the reason I decided to choose her as my coach. She was so real, down to earth and easy to talk to and it was clear that she was knowledgeable about body building and competing. On top of this, you could tell that she genuinely cared about the women she trains.
I chose her and I placed 4th in my second competition. My first completion I came in dead last so that shows you how much she helped me. She was there for all of my questions and concerns, every step of the way.
Two years later, not only have did Jill help me land a second place, nationally qualified spot in my third competition, but she also helped me pass the physical exam to become a police officer. I am now happily in my dream career and Jill was a major support system for me getting here. She has been an amazing friend, role model and motivator both in the gym and in my personal life. Jill is one of the most hard working, caring and driven individuals you will ever meet. If you want a coach who knows her stuff, and walks the walk, and who will go out of her way to be there for you as you reach your goals, I highly recommend Jill Bunny
Being a part of Team Bunny is like being part of a family. It’s great connecting with women that have similar goals and a drive to succeed at improving themselves to be the best and strongest version of themselves. Jill is very knowledgeable and she was there for me every step of the way in my journey. I learned a lot from her, she is a positive and inspiring leader! In under 1 year, at the age of 45, I qualified for Nationals and will compete in 2017.
Being part of Team Bunny is amazing. If I had any questions there was always someone to answer me. Jill has created something truly amazing with Team bunny. She helps women achieve their dreams and empower them to believe in themselves. Being part of a team is such a wonderful feeling. I am so thankful to have met Jill for if she only knew how much she has had an impact on my life, my self-esteem and showing met that if I want it I can achieve it, all I have to do is, DO IT! She is an excellent coach and understands exactly what we are all going through. She is a gift.
the 12 week transformation was the best experience I’ve ever had. I have worked with multiple coaches and companies but Team Bunny is by far the best one. I have never looked and felt better about my body and mental wellbeing! Thank you Jill!
