My name is Jamie and I love cookies. Sounds like a foodies anonymous meeting! I tell you that in the first line of my introduction because it’s true AND I am a contributor to this health focused website. How can that be? I train for life. I don’t train to be a fitness model nor to fit into a particular fitness icon mold. Like most women, I wear a minimum of 15 hats on any given day.
I’m a mama of 4 little boys and that might be reason enough to exercise and eat healthy. Keeping up with their energy and adventurous spirits requires some endurance on my part! I’m also a wife to a bubble boy, a forever optimist, my biggest fan…life is always good to Eric and Eric is always good to us.
In the last 16 years, I’ve been a Group Fitness instructor, Personal Trainer, a manager in a club, paid fitness blogger, and now a nutrition and lifestyle coach. I went to college to be an elementary teacher because I love it when someone (child or adult) has an “a-ha!” moment. After an “a-ha” moment, perspective changes. Fitness was a hobby and then a career when I found out that I could have a job that is centered around encouraging others like you!
I found that fitness was an in-road to people’s lives and hearts. If we feel good about ourselves, our body, our image, then life seems to be great all the way around. The reverse is also true isn’t it? That’s why I am passionate about providing helpful and encouraging resources online to people like you so that you can find success. Find a healthier you. I love to teach, to train, to encourage, to help and to watch you be successful. Really. It makes my heart sing. I anxiously look forward to hearing your story, your “a-ha” moments, and your successes. Thanks for allowing me in on this journey with you!
I don’t do this alone. That would be like a hand saying it went for a walk! Without a whole bunch of parts working together, no hand goes for a walk alone! I have a team of people that work with me doing the business side of things, web designing, graphics work, a whole lot of things I don’t do or understand…all so we can bring this to you. They are amazingly gifted people who also care about your success!
