Who is J-Lac?

Hi, I’m Jess!

I’m a strength and running coach, prenatal/postpartum fitness specialist, Moderation 365 Nutrition Consultant, pelvic health advocate, athlete, wife and mama. I love coffee, being outdoors, CrossFit and gummy candies.

I believe strength training is for everyone and can be made to work for everyone. I have been a certified personal trainer since 2011 and since then have completed my certification as a corrective exercise specialist, post natal fitness specialist and spent time working with many diverse 1:1 clients as well as coaching group fitness. I was once a long distance triathlete with a laundry list of nagging injuries, in 2017 I decided enough was enough. I stopped racing triathlon and spent the next 2 years getting f*cking strong and racing bikes. Because of strength training and some patience I was able to heal and go from lying on treatment tables weekly to standing on top of the podium.

I spent 4.5 years working at a busy physio clinic as an exercise therapist. While I learned a lot, I also learned that I wanted more independence in my career. I began trying to balance both coaching and the clinic and found myself getting bad stress headaches and not wanting to leave the gym. I knew I needed to take care of me more than anything – so I left the clinic, took a giant leap and started coaching full time.

I believe all training should be done with purpose. There are no junk miles or filler exercises here. Just science-based, high quality work. I believe in education, confidence building and doing something DIFFERENT! Training During pregnancy is SCARY- How do you know what you can and can’t be doing? Let me show you an empowered way of moving!

When i’m not coaching you can find me outside with my little fam, crushing weights in the gym, or in the mountains. Find my daily truth bombs and adventures over on the ‘gram @jlacfitness.
