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!
