I'm Jackie - Personal trainer, kickboxing instructor, and clean eating enthusiast.
I am a marine mammal trainer turned fitness professional. My philosophy on life is to find what you love to do and figure out a way to make it a career. As the saying goes, “If you love what you do then you will never work a day in your life.”
My dream since the age of four was to be a marine mammal trainer. I never strayed from that goal and ended up turning it into an amazing career. I am telling you this because I am living proof that you can set a goal and if you truly want it- it’s all yours!! So set those goals and let’s work together to make them become a reality.
After ten years of working with animals, I was ready for a life change. I had been teaching kickboxing part-time and it was something I looked forward to everyday. I couldn’t wait to feel those fitness endorphins! It took no time at all to realize this would be a fun and challenging new career path to embark on. So I proceeded to obtain my personal training license and fitness nutrition certificate through NASM.
The above mentioned mantra holds true for exercise as well. “Once you discover the best fitness routine for you, you will never ‘work’out a day in your life.” It’s all about finding the right fit. Everyone's bodies are different and I’m here to help you find what works best for you.
Throughout my childhood I was an athlete but knew little about health and nutrition. When I left for college I stopped playing sports and continued with my poor eating habits. I'm embarrassed to say that “the freshman 15” quickly turned into the freshman 30 with no end in sight. One day I looked in the mirror and wondered how on earth this had happened. I learned from trying many different methods that there are no secret diet pills, meal plans, body wraps etc... It's plain and simple - eat clean and move your body. It’s not about the latest diet trend, it’s about changing your life and living a healthier active lifestyle. I am here to help that dream become a reality. Let's do this!!
