"As someone who has been active her whole life through ballet, yoga, gym workouts, and more recently as a competitive cyclist (Masters) and Cycling Coach, I thought I knew a thing or two about strength training. Until I started working with Jess. Her program is second to none. Jess focuses on the whole body so it can not only perform at its best in sport, but also be balanced, resilient, and strong for life. Since starting her program, I have become a faster cyclist and continue to achieve best times. I am also able to hold higher power longer and delay fatigue. I am more confident in my abilities, feel stronger and no longer worry about bone or muscle loss as I get older. My experience with Jess has been so positive that I have now incorporated her training into the cycling programs I offer to my clients - and they too are seeing amazing results."
"I am a 50+ Masters racing cyclist. Jess has designed my strength program to help me race stronger and faster. During the past year, her strength program has improved my ability to deliver more force to the pedals as well as drive more power through the bottom of the pedal stroke. My overall cycling power has improved, as well as the duration I can maintain power. Jess designs my program to travel with me as work requires weekly travel and available gyms are sometimes nonexistent. Jess is great at working with me to adjust my strength program based on my cycling training volume, work travel, and race schedule."
"Jess helped me get my strength and core back after having kids and now she is working with me as I recover from a lower back injury. I am soon going to complete my first triathlon, because of her! The best thing about Jess is that she explains every thing in detail, so that I understand the exercises I am doing and why they are important for different parts of my body. I can’t recommend her enough- Jess is incredible at what she does!"
