Hi there I’m Jamie – devoted wife to one busy business owner / salesman and mommy to two beautiful young children (Mac – 6, Parker – 4). My family means the world to me & you’ll see that through and through in my posts. I’m also blessed to have have a very close relationship with my parents (my mom is my best friend & favorite workout partner), and my younger brother and his cute family. Get ready to see lots of them as we’re all together as much as possible!
I’ve been passionate about health and fitness since I was young – middle school to be exact as I would wake up super early to do a VHS recording of a show called Bodies in Motion on ESPN (yes, definitely showing my age by admitting that)! Exercise and healthy eating has since just been “part of me.” I thrive in group fitness classes & the accountability that comes along with working out with friends. (Turbokick, HIIT training and PiYo are a few favorite formats) I also teach TRX classes and love any class which involves weights or body weight training. Let’s face it….if it involves getting your heart rate up, burning fat and building muscle, I love it! I think it’s so important, too, to share the importance of keeping your body “healthy” with your children. They see Mommy bust her booty to get to the gym each day & they know it’s part of a healthy lifestyle here. One year ago, I joined the Beachbody family as a coach and have loved every single second I’ve had helping others get healthy. I run online support and accountability groups & love taking part in so many success stories and getting to witness, first-hand, lives being changed!
When I’m not at the gym, you can find me in the kitchen – I LOVE to cook! Whether I’m trying a new recipe from one of my favorite foodie blogs or just creating something fresh and new here, I absolutely love healthy food! My kids join me in the kitchen (especially my daughter) frequently, and I love sharing my passion for cooking with them! I look forward to sharing many of my adventures in the kitchen with you here!
