About me/Contact

Hello and welcome to you all!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site! I’m Jess Benoit-Jessica, Jess, NEVER Jessie-and it’s nice to “meet” you!

I am a health and fitness coach loving life in Bozeman, Montana with my little border collie, Bishnu (“bish-nu”, or “B” for short) My passions are happiness, fitness and the pursuit of health through food and getting sweaty. I’m a fitness enthusiast and a recreational athlete. I love the great outdoors and all Montana has to offer in the way of hiking, backpacking, mountain biking and trail running!

My health and fitness journey has been an evolution; I was never really into traditional organized sports. I dabbled in track and field and soccer as a child, but I really loved to camp and be in the woods; to ride bikes and adventure.  I discovered my love of getting sweaty through playing in the outdoors,  through exploring the art of resistance training, and studying the incredible mechanics of our human bodies through the Pre-Physical Therapy program here at Montana State University, Bozeman.

I love to assist others on their journey to living their healthiest lives possible and meet people where they’re at: whether you’ve got an old injury resulting in restricted movement, have a crazed and full life and need to find time for you, or have never picked up a dumbbell, I can help!

My philosophy in working with clients is to “train for life”; exercise and nourishing your body are essential ways to improve your quality of life. I believe that exercise is an integral component to living a physically, mentally and emotionally balanced life. You’ve got to get your “crazies” out!

Working with me you will find  a compassionate, excellent, open-minded listener, health myth buster, and sessions filled with abundant positive energy and humor. Our time together is fun, interesting, and also safe; we work within your specific limitations and test the limits to help you achieve your goals. I love discovering and revealing the athlete in everyone!

The nerdy stuff:  I am an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, ACE Fitness Nutrition Specialist, and am continually learning, improving and striving for the best ways to help you be healthier and happier people!

See you soon!

Jess
