Welcome to FitForceFX! I'm Jay, a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist. I'm also a mom of two kiddos and I'm in my 40's. Unlike many of the personal trainers or fitness gurus out there, I wasn't a high school sports star or a collegiate D1 Athlete (far from it). I wasn't athletic, didn't like working out and couldn't run to save my life. It wasn't until the age of 33, after my first baby was born, that I started to become consistently active. I even hired a couple of personal trainers but unfortunately, while this dedication and consistency did slightly increase my fitness level it did virtually nothing to change the way I looked. I was frustrated, I wasn't getting results and I wasn't enjoying working out.
After my 2nd baby I went rogue - I turfed the trainers and the advice in the magazines, made my own program and got amazing results. I just fell in love with working out and how it made me feel - so much so that I decided I needed to help others get fit too. So I earned my certification as a Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, later adding a Fitness Nutrition Specialization. Fitness and proper nutrition go hand-in hand for a healthy body.
If I can become an athlete at 39 anyone can do it! You don’t have to be young or have been super active or an athlete in the past to become one now. I am really proud of that and I want other women and men to know that it can be done. You just need consistency, hard work, dedication and the right program - and that's what I'm here for.
