On this episode of EMBody Radio, I talked to Jennifer “JZ” Zerling. She’s earned a master’s degree in Kinesiology, maintains multiple certifications (personal training, biomechanics, spin, nutrition, yoga), and has helped develop several fitness-related businesses. JZ is an age-management and aging specialist and also develops the High School fitness program for Matthew McConaughey’s non-profit foundation, Just Keep Livin. You can also catch JZ’s fitness and nutrition knowledge in many of your favorite outlets including Shape Magazine, Huffington Post, E! News, and more.
On today's show, we talk about:
-Aging and why it's not just a concern for "old people,"
-Making big life/career changes and how to handle those transitions,
-How people in their 20s and 30s can set themselves up now for a healthy, vibrant life and aging beautifully through diet and exercise,
-What diet, training, and lifestyle habits many of us have that make aging more painful and contribute to future illnesses and ailments,
-Overtraining, how to know if you're doing it, and what impact it has on your bones, joints, and muscles,
-Feeding your body to take care of it, not just to eat,
-Managing stress effectively,
-How working for Matthew McConaughey's non-profit has changed and added to her life,
-So much more!

Today's episode of EMBody Radio is brought to you by Four Sigmatic. Four Sigmatic provides the best in adaptogenic/therapeutic mushroom products. You’ve seen me post about this stuff on Instagram and IG stories all the time, and I wanted to take a sec to tell you a little more about them today. I started using them because I love adaptogens, and many of their mushroom products are just that – adaptogens. Adaptogens basically help you respond better to physical and emotional stress. I run a business, run multiple social media platforms that tie into my business, I’m a student, and I have a life outside of all that that I’m trying to live, so stress management is key. Mushrooms can also be used to help everything from your gut health to your skin.
My favorites are the Lion's Mane Mushroom Elixir and the Mushroom Hot Cacao with Reishi... Be sure to listen to the whole episode to learn why ;). If you want to try Four Sigmatic products, use the code "EMDUNC" to get 15% off your order at foursigmatic.com/emdunc.
