Get Moving Purple Penguin Style!

Have you considered that getting fit could be as fun as recess used to be? What if exercise felt like playing again? Can you imagine looking forward to your workouts and honoring your body for how amazing it is? 

If you've tried every diet, gym membership, infomercial program, or magic weight loss pill but still haven't been able to make fitness a lifestyle, you're in the right place.

Welcome to Purple Penguin Fitness where smiles are just as important as strength. Around here we are penguins. We are silly, wobbly, and friendly.

Purple Penguin Fitness was founded by Jenn V after a lifetime of struggling with her own weight. Gym Class Misfits and non-athletes welcome! Click on the About page for more about Jenn.

Gluten Free Guide and Food List

I gave up gluten about 7 years ago and it took a long time to learn the fine details of what gluten is and where it's found. I've condensed, as best as possible, the last several years of research, trial, and error into a guide for you to learn what you need to know to live a gluten free lifestyle, if you choose, without feeling deprived or heading for the gluten free junk food.
