Body Composition Analysis Informs Your Wellness Journey

Body composition analysis refers to measuring your body composition (muscle, fat and water). Instead of focusing on a single number on your scale, body composition analysis allows you to focus on losing body fat and gaining muscle while retaining the proper amount of water in your specific areas of the body.  Body composition analysis is extremely beneficial on your wellness journey.

The Story of a Balloon

When I was little and learning to pray, I liked to put all of my requests, battles, petitions and thoughts of gratitude into a basket. Then I would tie on a ribbon attached to a balloon and watch it float up to the Heavens. Today, as I still come face to face with battles, I remain constant in my filling baskets.

Fitness became a life-line for me very quickly, when I realized how much it aided in lessening daily anxieties with motherhood stressors, social phobias and shyness. At each training session with my own trainer, Chad Austin of Priority Fitness, I found myself able to leave everything at the front door, answer only to myself, and simply beat sets. The peace that came from the physical win (and even a loss every now and then) transferred to mental and emotional strength beyond what I had ever known before. When I feel like I want to quit, I can fill my baskets right in the middle of a set, then win, making the suffering I endure that much more powerful. Full body connection from inside to outside.

Here’s what I know to be true: Our bodies are built so intricately and powerfully beyond our comprehension. They are meant to run efficiently, effectively and with joy. And we are given daily opportunities to encourage and inspire each other. Why not find out how strong you are? Why not chase after your possibilities, dreams, goals and wonders? And when you succeed, because you got this, go show somebody else and tell them they can do it, too. I’m convinced we are capable of so much more than we believe of ourselves. Come find your strength. You were built to elevate.

What People are Saying about Personal Trainer Jesse

I have been working with Jesse for about 5 months and couldn’t be happier with the results and experience! Jesse is very dedicated and extremely passionate about what she does and truly enjoys helping people and it shows.

Jesse is a great listener and makes sure all my workouts are customized for my specific needs ( and there are many) she always has an upbeat positive attitude, finding a way to make it work with patience and support.

Thank you Jesse! You’ve helped me become stronger, firmer and more confident!

I look forward to the future and reaching my Goals!

My training experience has been nothing less than amazing, challenging and rewarding. I have enjoyed learning about the different ways to improve my eating, exercise and my overall health. If you want to take control of you life and your overall health, Jesse is a great place to start. She will get you focused on the right aspect of your health journey. Thanks Jess.

Working out with Jesse is one of the highlights of my week; our session is the best way to start off my week!  She challenges me and pushes me every single session to reach a new level that I didn’t know was possible!

She doesn’t only care about your appointments, but she cares about your goals and your desire to better yourself; she does whatever possible to help you accomplish them!

Jesse is the most compassionate person, who never stops believing in me, even when I’m certain I can’t do it. She pushes me in a way that is perfect for me. If it weren’t for her unwavering belief in my abilities, I might have given up long ago.

If there’s one thing I know about Jesse, she’s the one you want in your corner. She truly derives joy from helping someone else achieve or heal or overcome. Even if it seems like the tiniest baby-step, she’s there celebrating. That’s why I’m keeping her.

I feel strong. She is the cure for my Monday morning hangovers… I feel safe; I don’t have to worry about little silly injuries that were happening at CrossFit.

Who knew exercise could be so much fun?! Jesse creates a gillion variations that keeps my mind focused on the present challenge. A sharper mind, improved coordination and balance are effects that I never expected. The strength and wholeness I feel at the end of a workout feel so wonderful!”

“Honestly, when it comes down to it, I would really just love to meet you and hear your story.”
