“I FEEL THAT FOOD IS MEDICINE SO I INCORPORATE THE TYPES OF FOODS THAT FUEL ME BUT ALSO KEEP ME HEALTHY. I DON’T COUNT CALORIES, BUT I EAT INTUITIVELY AND LISTEN TO MY BODY.” — JORDAN

JORDAN PARKER MEANS

(AND HUSBAND DJUAN MEANS WITH DAUGHTERS PARKER, 4, AND ELLIE-MAE, 3 MONTHS) AGE 32 JOB Co-owner/nutritionist at By Any Means Fitness WORKOUT SPOT I exercise in my home and at the gym. My husband and I own By Any Means Fitness. HER PASSION I have been active for as long as I can remember. I played a number of sports through high school, and I continued to exercise once I went to college. I know that if I want to remain fit, I have to put in the work. BIG WIN In April 2016, I competed in the Kentucky Derby Fitness competition. It was my first time competing, and I won both of my classes in the bikini division. I prepared for 12 weeks, following a very strict workout program and diet. BIGGEST EXCUSE My biggest excuse is time. It’s something I also hear a lot from clients. I tell myself all it takes is 10 minutes to do a quick workout at home before the kids get up. POWER MEAL I am all about real, whole food. I avoid processed products as much as possible. I follow mostly a plant-based diet with occasional animal proteins like eggs and fish. Makeup: Denise Cardwell, Image Works Studio
