We don't use models for our photoshoots, we use our amazing customers & friends because they are the
Real Women of Amazing Jane.
As well as being professionally qualified BANT and CNHC Registered Nutritional Therapists, we are busy working women, who run for health, fitness, achievement, and fun. We are also foodies!

5 Questions with Karen & Aileen
What does your version of active look like?
Karen: My version of active is incorporating some form of exercise into my routine 6 days per week – running or strength training. I have discovered a love of trail running and I’m sometimes joined by Bella my Labrador (she’s often in the background when we record our podcast too!) I always include one rest day for pure recovery so I have sufficient energy to see me through my ACTIVE days!
Aileen: I love being outdoors. I do short runs locally in parks, along the riverside and the coast. At weekends I enjoy a park run and a hike usually in Northumberland. I love a walking holiday – my next one is the Portuguese Camino, covering 150 miles in 13 days. I attend regular reformer Pilates classes and do a couple of strength training classes every week too.
Where do YOU rank on your priority list and why?
Karen: Maintaining a daily exercise routine ensures that I put my needs at the top of the ranking at least once every day. Outside of this, personal needs tend to move to third place with family and work ranking above.
Aileen: I’ve learned (over many years) that putting myself first is not selfish but essential. It’s important for me to feel fit, healthy, energetic, and calm, so I can be my best for everyone and everything important to me.
Give us a positive and negative of getting older:
Positive – more confident and less concerned with what others think about me.
Negative – Grey hair – I just don’t like it as it is “wiry” – colouring it does not make it any softer!!
Positive – I worry less about the past and the future and enjoy the present! I’m happy to be me!
Negative – My bug bear is “post menopause weight gain” but as I get older, I focus on energy, strength and flexibility and not dress size!
What challenges do you face when trying to remain active?
Karen: The only challenge I face is the age-associated increased risk of becoming injured. Otherwise, remaining active is one of my daily priorities.
Aileen: I have the early stages of Osteoporosis so I’m very conscious of my bone health and have become a bit “risk-averse” so NO running on icy roads or jumping off rocks for me!
What draws you to the Amazing Jane brand?
Karen: You are real women producing beautiful activewear for real women. Your brand targets women of all ages, shapes and sizes so it is very inclusive…I also like the idea of the “Tracker Leggings” as I run long distances….often on hills and trails.
Aileen: I love the Amazing Jane ethos of “show up as you are” and that you champion REAL Women. Whatever our shape and size, we all love to feel good, so having beautifully designed activewear which not only looks great but does the technical job too, sets us all up for success.
