What are some of the opportunities that have come out of the fitness industry for you?
Signing on with Fitness Gurls is definitely my biggest and most exciting opportunity that I’ve had so far in fitness! It’s an honor and I’m so excited for what we have planned together in the near future!

How often do you workout and what kind of workouts do you do?
I workout 5 days a week. I focus mostly on bodybuilding and lifting weights. I come from being naturally very petite so building muscle is so rewarding and exciting to me.

What’s your favorite body part to train?
I love training my lower body! It’s what I work the hardest, where I’ve seen the most improvement and what
I’m most proud of!





Some of the opportunities include traveling and we were so glad to have you be a part of the Fitness Gurls trip to Jamaica! How many days were you there for and how many days of photo shoots did you do?
We were there for three days. We shot a bit each day. It was such a beautiful place to take pics I enjoyed it so much!

You can’t have a trip to beautiful Jamaica without a little leisure time. What did you do when you weren’t shooting?
Ate lol.. we went snorkeling one day and that was so much fun!! We got to feed the fish, there were so many of them! It was awesome!!

Did you get to enjoy any local cuisine there? What did you eat?
We were at a resort that served really good food!

How were your workouts on your trip? Where did you work out?
We had so much going on and so much to crunch in 3 days that it was a challenge to find time to workout but honestly the snorkeling was a pretty decent workout!!

What is your favorite memory from this trip to Jamaica?
For sure being taped and shooting in the warm water! We don’t get super warm ocean water in Southern California, which makes getting in the water, rough at times lol, but in Jamaica, it was practically bath water… it was so warm I wanted to shoot totally wet in the water the whole time!

What are your top places you haven’t visited, but would like to?
I would absolutely love to go to Santorini Greece! That’s my dream place to shoot and vacation!

Are you the type of person who plans out your entire vacation? Or do you play it by ear day by day?
Both! I definitely will always have set things or sites I want to see when I’m vacationing somewhere, but I also like to just relax and leave some time open to be spontaneous when I’m there.

What essentials do you pack for trips?
Always, always my phone lol, but that’s always with me anyway haha.. multiple bikinis, lots of cute outfits, sunscreen, makeup and my stuffed animal from home.

Do you have any advice for getting over jet lag?
Fun! Having fun makes you forget about anything else. Oh and maybe a cup or two of coffee as well.

What’s next for Nienna Jade for the rest of 2017?
Working hard so that 2018 will be my best year yet!

You’re one of the biggest fit Inspirations for mothers on social media. How did you get started in training and living a fit lifestyle?
I have always been into health & fitness, but it wasn’t until I after the birth of my twins that I went all out hardcore in my training. I was on bed rest for 5 months of my pregnancy & it ignited a fire & drive inside me unlike ever before.

I had been paddle boarding all the time and saw the physical benefits. I took it a step further and got certified to teach, I started racing.

Then I got hooked on the Barre’ method I trained to be an instructor, taught classes locally for 3 yrs & now teach privately in my home to a select few. I absolutely love helping others feel better about themselves, providing them with encouraging attainable ways to improve their lifestyle & achieve goals.

What is the most challenging thing about being a fitness model and a mother?
The most challenging part is being disciplined mentally on staying positive that all will be okay someday. Traveling and being a single mother, it’s a constant balancing act.

What are your top 3 favorite exercises?
Stand up paddle boarding at a fast pace for about 45 min. Barre Methodology with weights. And, I have always loved a quick run around my neighborhood for a good cardio, fat burning & mental meditation stress relief.

Do you listen to music while you train? And what’s are your favorite types of music you like working out to?
Listening to music when I train is an absolute must for me. Tunes with a good beat, I’m a lover of good ol’ Trap, hip hip with of course some pop sprinkled in.

Do you ever encounter stereotypes from the way you look?
I encounter stereotypes every time I step outside my home for the way I look. Especially being a mother of 4. Honestly, I still struggle with how people can be so cruel with judging one on appearances without getting to know them first. It’s about mastering the art of not caring what others think, but let’s keep it real. that’s not always easy. I am comfortable & confident in my own skin, proud of who I am as a woman, mother, daughter & friend.

What was your favorite photo shoot location?
Oooh, that’s a tough one, as I have a few, but his past July though I was in Vegas for a week shooting bikinis & fitness lifestyle. This shoot, in particular, I found myself surrounded by genuinely kind, creative people who worked their tooshes off and never complained once that the heat index was over 115 degrees. It was an incredibly positive experience. Other than that Australia 🙂

Jala Sue

What is your current training style, routine or split?
I do Barre method for around 45 minutes 2-3 days a week. On those off on days, I will either go for a 40-minute paddle or fast run for 3 miles. When I watch movies at night, I do crushes & planks.

What are your favorite clean foods?
I love daily healthy smoothies, I am a big Juicer as well for keeping my immune system strong. Meal wise, I’m a fan of steak & chicken, salads. I love fresh veggies.

Jala Sue

Splurge foods?
Chips, I’m a chipaholic! also, sour patch kids 🙂

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Skydiving this past winter & I can’t wait to do it again & again.

What tips do you have for a beginner at the gym?
The hardest part is finding a workout routine/class you love to do. Then I suggest, making small weekly goals. Don’t let fear paralyze you, let it motivate you. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment. Set alarms in your phone to remind yourself to workout. Are mornings, afternoons or evenings better for your schedule? Start with 3 days a week, committing to 1hr each time. once you get in the habit of this, I guarantee you will feel so good you will want to add more.

Lastly, find a workout buddy. It’s much more fun to have someone that can hold you accountable & in turn you hold them accountable. It’s a win-win for both people. plus, some of best friends have come from being my workout partners.

This mornings shoot 🌊☀️ VIDEO 1: 💁🏻‍♀️Selfishly checking angles. VIDEO 2: 😅 How to keep warm during an early morning beach shoot – ANYWAY, Let’s talk about something… Is it possible to have a lean, strong, healthy body and not be obsessive about calories burned or macros counted? FREAKING YES‼️ Unfortunately so many people don’t believe that’s true… Currently my relationship with fitness and how I view myself is the healthiest it’s ever been. I train with the intention of performance and athleticism instead of calories burned. Literally “athlete mentality” not “model mentality” 🙌🏻 I eat to fuel and I enjoy my meals. I do not count macros (I do make sure I get enough protein though) and I am not a slave to the “nutrition facts” labels. I enjoy life and have fun. 🚫 No, I am not shredded or the most muscular chick and my goal is not to have the best physique on social media or w/e. My goal is to be strong, healthy, and mentality stable. THIS IS HEALTH & this is what I want to inspire others to feel 💕 ———————————————— Want to try my daily workouts, meals, & recipes?
