CHANGE YOUR LIFE
Hi I'm Jessica! As a CSEP certified personal trainer, I'm constantly striving to provide the best quality coaching that I can, so that my clients have a fun and positive experience.
To achieve maximum results, I believe it's important to educate my clients so they don't waste their time on fads and gimmicks. I could have taken a basic personal training certification course over a weekend like many trainers do however, you usually get what you pay for when it comes to education. So instead, I invested thousands of dollars and years of my life learning about exercise science and have a diploma in kinesiology. Once you have a kinesiology diploma, only then can you be accepted to go through the CSEP certification program. CSEP is the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology. They are currently the Gold Standard in Exercise Science and Personal Training. This will be my fourth year running my personal training business. I love working 1 on 1 helping people to transform their lives and watch them achieve what they never thought was possible.
I specialize in weight loss and bodybuilding while helping people feel confident and empowered through movement, education and establishing a healthy relationship with food. Whether you have an injury, are just starting out, are looking to lose weight, build muscle and strength, or even just change up your routine, I can help you get the results you want. I know what works and what doesn't. I can help you reach your goals safely and effectively.
Getting in shape shouldn’t be a punishment. It’s an amazing and empowering lifestyle decision that anyone can achieve. I believe in finding the pleasurable side of fitness, and while there may be a sore muscle or two along the way, the amount of fun and levels of energy you will experience will far exceed the discomfort!
Hi I'm Jessica! I enjoy being outside, especially in hot sunny weather. I think dogs are truly amazing creatures and I seriously love food.
I used to think I needed to suppress my love for food and sacrifice my enjoyment from it because if I wanted to be slim I would need to give it up. So, for the longest time, I did intense cardio for 1.5 hours a day for 5 days a week, every week.
At the time, I thought It was the only way I could still eat what I wanted and look thin.
To an extent, that was true. I burned a lot of calories. I was slim. I was however also obsessed with the amount of calories I consumed, I started to avoid sugar because I thought it would make me fat. I always stressed if I ate something I thought was considered “bad”. That mindset had me trapped for so long and I dreamed of the day I would never feel like that again.
Throughout my journey to the “perfect body” I started to learn about metabolic adaptation. This truly blew my mind. In short, as we increase our activity level and muscle mass, our metabolism increases. This is the rate our body converts food to energy. This means when we move more and/or have more muscle on our bodies, we can eat more food and maintain our weight, reduce fat, and look slim.
I then started looking more at natural female athletes and was surprised to see it was possible for a toned woman to consume over 2000 calories and look incredibly fit (not bulky). We need to realize 1200 calories is not normal and not appropriate for a grown woman to be eating. That's the recommendation for a toddler.

In my own journey, weight lifting has made me realize I’m much stronger than I ever thought I was capable of and has given me confidence. I feel happier and more in control of my fitness goals. I can eat the foods I want without feeling guilty, still maintaining a healthy lifestyle while feeling confident in my own skin.
I want to reach as many people as I can because I want people to realize that with balance of cardio + weight lifting you can accomplish amazing strength and aesthetic goals. If you want to get stronger, lose fat, maintain bone density or live a healthier life, weight lifting is scientifically proven to help you accomplish that. With weight lifting, you even have the power to shape your body and I think that’s amazing.
I no longer kill myself with cardio and avoid so called “bad” foods. I strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle and sometimes that includes binge watching my favorite Netflix show and enjoying some ice cream.

Jessica is great, I did tandem training and our class was very good even though my partner and I were at different levels. I am 61 (not old) and haven’t exercised or trained with weights in a long time but Jess knows her stuff and had me back at it quickly, she pushes you beyond what you think your capable of and gets you doing it. Definitely recommend her for any level, I’m waiting for a new partner for tandem!
"I hired Jessica to help me lose weight and also to teach me proper form and technique with the gym equipment. She’s a great teacher and knows her stuff and will make sure that you progress. She was always prepared with a workout for our sessions and at the end of the contract she supplied me with a month’s worth of exercise programs that I can use over again. I will call on her again in the future and recommend her for your fitness needs."
