I first met Jacinta Robinson and her partner, Alyse at a Melbourne Cup event in 2022. After speaking with Jacinta about her business – Fearlss, I was intrigued with how she was inspiring others to become their best selves. With many people eager to reach their health goals in 2023, with a positive approach, I knew our readers would like to know more about this mindset and wellness coach from Brisbane.
On a drizzly day in February I met Jacinta at the Library Café at the State Library of Queensland to chat about health, wellness and mindset. I ordered an almond milk latte and Jacinta favoured a flat white with oat milk. Of course we kept hydrated with water… Jacinta shared that this is one of the best things we can do for our health.
1. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Growing up in Bundaberg I felt I was a little chubbier than my friends. My family was also overweight. I told my Mum that I wanted to look like the girls in magazines and I think that inspired her. We embarked on a diet as a family and after some months. I lost weight and felt better in my own skin. We did a photoshoot and after having my hair and makeup done I felt so beautiful.
I wanted to help other people feel beautiful too, so I became a hairdresser and eventually worked my way up the ranks to manage several salons. I loved talking to people and really loved my job but I was working six days a week and not exercising or eating properly so my weight was increasing. I tried every diet from protein shakes to keto … you name it I tried it! I would also yo-yo between smashing myself at the gym for weeks on end … then not going and binge eating.
The frustration I felt with my weight led me to pursue a new career in personal training.
I became more interested in wellness and helping people in other ways so became a personal trainer and gym manager. It was around this time that I met Alyse and she inspired me to learn more about mindset, to understand the deeper reasons behind why people do what they do.
2. Tell us about Fearlss.
The Fearless Mindset Method helps people to break long-term habits or belief systems that may be holding them back from achieving their goals. Sometimes it is past trauma or fear that stops clients from achieving their goals. You need to feel the fear and move through it. By applying the Fearlss method and using the Fearlss app you can work through stages guided by me to achieve your specific goals. We’ve had great success helping people change their mindset and consequently losing weight.
3. What can people expect when they work with you?
We have a fun step by step process that focuses a lot on mindset, plus weekly check in calls, an app with follow along workouts, dietician approved meal plans, hundreds of recipes and a supportive and motivating Private Facebook group. You can use the app anywhere in the world. I am always in contact with my clients to help them. Some people decide to become VIP clients and use the premium service where you get access to direct message me 6 days per week. I work with you every step of the way.
I also host a weekly Fearlss social group where you can do a walk or run of 1- 5 kms. After we all go to breakfast together at a café. We meet every Saturday at 5:50 am in South Brisbane. We believe that anyone can learn to run and my clients have proven that. Some of them who just started with walking are now working up to compete in full marathons and half marathons.
4. What are three tips you can give all of us to lead a healthier life?
A) Hydration is key. Aim to drink two litres per day. You should carry a water bottle with you everywhere you go.
B) If something is stressful ask yourself – How is this benefitting me right now or how can I be grateful for this experience?
C)Look at what you’re eating and eliminate processed food. Try and eat whole foods as much as possible.
5. How do you maintain your own fitness?
The most important thing is mindset, so my partner and I host a mindset session with each other weekly. Second most important is nutrition so I shop organic from Farmers Markets and I eat a plant based diet. For the feel–good hormones and fitness I do a combination of running, weights and mobility. Mobility is super important.
6. What’s something people might not know about you?
I am what you would label dyslexic so I am still working on improving my reading, writing and speech. For many years I used the affirmation, “I’m not a reader. “. Through the support of my partner, Alyse I began reading more and predicting words in texts. I am now proud to say I am a reader and part of that was changing my mindset and beliefs around my ability to read.
You might also recognise me from TV as I was a contestant on Episode 8 of the 2021 game show Holey Moley.
7. How can people find you and Fearlss?
Search Jacinta Robinson on almost all social media channels. (I mostly use Instagram) I make video content, share my client’s success stories, my own workouts, my weekly food shop and meal choices. I also post street interviews. We have a podcast and so many social channels where you can find me.
8. Do you have a quote to live by?
” If you think you can or think you can’t you’re right. “
9. What’s next for you and the Fearlss team?
We are busy developing and building a new technology product to help more people with wellness and mindset on a global scale. Our new apps should be up and running soon. My goal is to eventually see one million lives transformed.
It‘s great to share stories of Jacinta and her client’s wellness journeys. I now follow Jacinta on Instagram to access helpful tips and have a laugh at her ‘on the go’ interviews. You never know what people are going to say or do. I have been inspired by her food choices and enjoy seeing the transformations of Fearlss participants. It’s always great to speak to local businesswomen who are working hard to help others in their community and beyond. Jacinta encourages us all to be fearless. That is why #SheInspires.
