MEET THE BIG PICKLE
Hi there I am Jill, the BIG PICKLE here at Chronically Fit Canada, and the host of THE PICKLE JAR PODCAST.
My mission is to share with you my over 18 years of professional knowledge in the fitness industry and my personal experience of living every day with a rare chronic illness. My unique journey has positively revolutionized my life!
My personal diagnosis with Addison’s Disease, a life threatening autoimmune disease in 2011 made my fire for wellness burn stronger. Life experience has given me a masters degree in getting knocked down and getting back up to fight another day.
All of this experience and knowledge are at the heart of Chronically Fit Canada.
The Pickle Jar Podcast
THE PICKLE JAR is inspired by my personal journey with Addison’s Disease or Adrenal Insufficiency. I was & lacked the support that I needed to manage my illness & have the best quality of life.
Years of experience advocating for myself lead me to THE PICKLE JAR Podcast. It is my passion to connect people GLOBALLY living with Adrenal Insufficiency & all invisible illnesses.
The Pickle Jar Podcast is educating, advocating &changing lives for people living with adrenal insufficiency.
Connecting a community of people together to live their best lives.
Distributed on APPLE, SPOTIFY & GOOGLE.
“Thank you so much for all you do, I am newly diagnosed& have been listening to your podcast nonstop. Thank you for all the wonderful information, you have made me feel so much less alone on this journey.”
“I had recently been diagnosed with Addison’s Disease, and I was looking for tools to navigate the rocky road of chronic illness. Jill walked into my life just at the right time! Having battled Addison’s for many years already and watched her father do the same, Jill was eager to offer up her support and kind words of encouragement.Not only was she ready to share her resources as a personal trainer, but she always had the perfect catch phrase and idea to motivate me.Jill’s perspective on health is unique, and fit perfectly with what I was going through. Her words: “Food is your best medicine” and “You deserve the best every day” have stuck with me on this wild journey, and I couldn’t be more appreciative.
“I have joined your podcast & just want to say I’m loving them& learning…you are doing an awesome job thank you very much.”
