Jessica Smith has been a personal trainer and fitness instructor since 1999 and has taught and trained at some of the most prestigious gyms in the country. But before she started my career in this industry, she was someone who was frustrated by fad diets and extreme fitness programs. Exercising hasn’t always been fun for her, and she's endured the lose-some-gain-more cycle more times than she can count.

One day, she finally stopped punishing her body and started listening to it instead. She learned that exercise doesn’t have to be a punishment for what you ate or simply a means of burning calories, it can be a vehicle for self-appreciation and improvement. When you can love and appreciate where you are while working towards your goals, you’ll transform the way you live.

After 20+ years of teaching and learning in fitness, Jessica is thrilled to be able to produce her own line of home workout programs featuring her training philosophy that enhances all aspects of life. You can find her at
