For any woman who feels burned out, beaten down, or like she might break under the pressure, third-degree black belt and motivational coach of ABC's My Diet Is Better Than Yours teaches a unique brand of badassery--how to get back up no matter what life throws at you; how to level up your mind, body and spirit; and how to turn your setbacks into superpowers.

Jennifer Cassetta is a nationally recognized keynote speaker, health and empowerment coach, and a 3rd-degree black belt in Hapkido.  After a brush with death on September 11th, 2001, three blocks south of the World Trade Center, and a near sexual assault within the same year, Jenn took a deep dive into martial arts training where she learned how to harness the power of mind, body, and spirit.

Now she teaches women from colleges to corporations how to unleash their inner badass by using dojo wisdom as a metaphor for life. 

Whether the opponent is a financial hardship, a difficult boss, or being in a manipulative relationship, Cassetta teaches readers how to flex their mental muscle, how to rise above fears, and how to turn setbacks into superpowers.

Through thought-provoking exercises and no-holds-barred humor, she shows women how to close the door on blame and shame; how to grow from their Greatest (S)Hits List of life disappointments; and how to disarm and defend against the blocks that hold them back.

In life--just like in martial arts--we get pushed and pulled and kicked down. We get banged up and bruised and stretched to our limits. Cassetta champions women that while they may bend, they will not break, and that they have the power within them to rise up and stand tall.
