In Depth

Also known as the "fitpreneur," Jenelle Salazar is a Mexican-American certified fitness coach, nutritionist, lifestyle consultant, social media influencer and creator of "Get Bodied by J."

Born on February 26, 1982 in New Mexico, she was raised in a family that practiced an unhealthy diet that led to her obesity. She reveals in an interview with the radio show "6 Weeks to Fitness," that there weren't a lot of fruits and vegetables in their home. However, Jenelle was active in physical education in her school and was a cheerleader. She would also watch Billy Blanks Jr. exercise DVDs for inspiration. Soon after that, Jenelle moved to Las Vegas and enrolled herself at the Professional Fitness Institute.

Her passion for fitness grew when her former fitness mentor inspired her to become one herself. Jenelle has divulged in several of her interviews how much she wants to help people be healthy, and teach them how to take care of their bodies. With that thought in mind, she decided to be a personal trainer.

In 2000, she relocated to Atlanta, Georgia and had her first clients as a part-time personal trainer. Five years later, she received her National Academy of Sports Medicine or N.A.S.M. certification, and became a full-time fitness trainer. Jenelle started hosting boot camps online, and in the real world, wherein she would put up fitness challenges once a month and people from all over the US would join.

She began uploading workout videos on her YouTube channel "GetBodiedByJ" in 2012. Her first upload was a 10-minute workout for abdominals. She continuously posts workout routines and also video blogs sharing her healthy meals.

Jenelle married professional baseball player Crezdon Butler in 2015. She mentioned in an interview with WagsRedefined.com that she used to think she would never get married. She further revealed how she was damaged by many men, and how her husband had to work hard to tear down her emotional walls.

In her years of practice as a trainer, Jenelle developed her brand "Get Bodied by J." According to Jenelle, she chose the term "bodied" because it means giving the kind of body her client's desire.

In 2016, she started a Get Bodied by J fitness tour around the States which includes personal training, spa treatments, and customized meals.

Besides being a full-time personal trainer, she also ventured into different businesses. Jenelle collaborated with SlimClip Case, and partnered with the fitness apparel company, Live. As a "fitpreneur," Jenelle launched her own athletic clothing line, Bodied Wear, in 2017. This line produces a wide range of merchandise such as t-shirts, caps, hoodies, bags, leggings, and even baby clothing.

In the same year, Jenelle partnered with The Winnona Partners, a mobile application developer, and launched her personal app "Bodied - Health and Fitness." It contains exclusive training routines made by Jenelle for various goals like wanting to lose weight, gain weight, increase speed and agility, or improve one's diet. It also includes workouts designed specifically for expecting women.

Furthermore, Jenelle gave birth to her 3rd child, Dallas Butler, and did a short video for Sweet Sweat, a workout enhancer which Jenelle has been promoting since 2012.

After giving birth, Jenelle documented her journey of "self-love" by getting her backside implants removed. She was featured in the show "The Doctors" before having her surgery, and further revealed the process on her YouTube channel. Jenelle conveys her thoughts on beauty enhancements, and how many women do it in the dark without proper knowledge.

The "fitpreneur" further expanded her brand as she introduced its first supplement, Bodied Brain Formula. It is a mood enhancer for women designed by Jenelle herself, that claims to improve focus and enhance mood.

According to a study, America has one of the highest percentages of obese people in the world. Based on her own experience, Jenelle thinks that the main cause of obesity is fast food, and it begins at home if parents are negligent in terms of what they are feeding their children. As a mother of 3, she is hands-on with her kids, especially with the food they eat. Jenelle's fight against obesity involves using social media to encourage people to eat healthy and train regularly.
