Jesse’s passion for fitness started early in his life. He always enjoyed long-distance running and biking but excessively long cardio sessions, poor lifestyle and nutrition habits started to show weaknesses in his body and started Jesse on a journey to discover what the human body actually needs to heal and function at its best. After realizing the benefits of how lifestyle changes, proper movement, nutrition and training principles could impact his life, Jesse was certain that he wanted to use this knowledge to help other people achieve their optimal health and performance. Jesse’s clientele is pre/postnatal, general health, strength and conditioning, weight loss and athletes. Jesse is a certified personal trainer and also holds many certifications in pre/postnatal training, nutrition, strength training and working with an aging population to list a few.
