Holyhead mum on a mission

A MUM of five from Holyhead, Anglesey, completed her first half marathon as part of her mission to inspire people to prioritise their health. 

39-year-old, Abi Jenkins, started her fitness journey earlier this year after finding a lump in her breast and now wants to help and inspire as many people as she can to start making healthier life choices. 

Abi said: “I have always been unhealthy – zero fitness, smoking, drinking, not eating clean foods and not eating regularly – I said I was going to lose weight this year, but when I found that lump, suddenly I realised how important it was for me to change my lifestyle. 

“Kids don’t need the best trainers or the most expensive gadgets – they need parents who are there for them when they grow up and start their own families, parents who are healthy and going to be around for a long time and that’s our responsibility to do what we can to make that happen.” 

Abi hopes that others watching her journey will be inspired to take steps towards improving their own health and quality of life, and she is very keen to help and support people to do this through her actions and her coaching business, but also through a not for profit venture opening soon in Holyhead. 

“#ThatPurplePlace will be a wellness hub with a goal of offering a wide range of projects and activities to help people to learn about and improve their physical and mental health. We will focus on wellness, community, positivity and education.  

“We are very excited about the impact this will have and we hope to be opening the doors in December this year.”
