I have been training with Jes for about two and a half years and am more fit now than I was at the age of 30.  I’m 47 now and my goal is to continue playing hockey, golf and martial arts into my 70’s. Since meeting Jes, I don’t see any reason why I can’t meet that goal or even extend it by a decade.

When I met Jes I was fit, but plagued by injuries.  My body was out of balance.  I was compensating for pain and weakness even though I felt strong.  Jes was amazing and first helped me rehab my shoulder which was wreaking havoc on the rest of me!   She said I was “all tilty” and that my core was weak.  She was right!  We spent a lot of time working on my core strength, balance and posture.  Her whole body approach helped me re-pattern movements that had become corrupted over the years.  Her deep knowledge of kinesiology, nutrition, anatomy, balance, strength and endurance have helped me in ways I never thought possible.  She has helped me get so far and I am grateful for all she’s done for me!

Jes is a great listener and will find the right approach to motivating you. She knows when and how to push you and is always positive and compassionate. She has helped me to learn to focus on the value of building on small improvements that continue over time to become big changes.  She has become a good friend in the gym and heckles me all the time.  I love it, it makes me work harder and stay humble.  I honestly don’t think I’d be working out regularly if it weren’t so much fun to hang out with Jes at her little shop of fitness torture!

I did Jes Reynolds 10-Day Nutrition Reset and loved the results.  It was a struggle and I was not perfect in following the reset 100%, however, I came through the 10 days feeling really good, having lots of energy, and losing about 7 lbs.  

My goal in doing the 10-Day Nutrition Reset was not to lose weight; however, that was a welcomed side effect.  I enjoy being healthy and living a healthy lifestyle, however, my father passed away in August and since then, about 5 months, I had not been taking care of myself.  I was drinking too often, eating terribly, and not making exercise a priority.  I need a healthy diet and exercise to be part of my daily life in order to feel balanced and to have a clear mind and positive attitude.  I was feeling foggy every day and was not my normal optimistic self.  I needed something to help push me back towards being healthy and Jes Reynolds 10-day reset seemed like the perfect thing.  I felt like I could do anything for 10 days.  

I strongly suggest anyone who is going to do the reset reads through the entire program and gives yourself a few days to think about the commitment and also purchase the food items you will need.  I made the mistake of not reading through the entire thing.  I purchased what was needed for the first 2 days and started without completely reading what the plan was for the next 10 days.  

The first day was great.  I drank my smoothies and my husband made me the butternut squash soup per the recipe provided.  I tried to eat it, however, I do not like spice and the curry in the butternut squash soup was WAY too much for me.  I ended up making a second batch using no curry and combining the two.  Then I had no problem eating it.  On the second day, I woke up feeling hungry.  I had my smoothies and fresh raw vegetables; however, at lunch time I ate 2 of my kid’s gluten & dairy free chicken nuggets.  I didn’t need them and they certainly didn’t satisfy any craving or dietary need, but I wanted to eat something resembling unhealthy since I was addicted to eating garbage food.  Day 2 was the sweet potato soup and it was amazing.  On day three I woke up feeling great.  Had lots of energy, but still wanted to eat junk.  I pushed through and resisted the urge.  It was amazing to me that after 3 days of the reset I was already feeling so energized and positive.  I will not lie, I was looking forward to eating something other than raw veggies on day four, but I was feeling great.

Days 4 thru 7 were fantastic.  I meal prepped so I had 2 solid meals a day, plus the smoothies, raw veggies and some fruit.  On day 8, I had a date night planned with my husband. I did really well and ate healthy all day, however, at dinner I had fajitas with cheese (I did eat them with corn tortillas so no gluten) and I had 3 glasses of red wine.  I woke up the next day feeling angry at myself.  I proceeded on my normal path of eating bad because I was feeling bad, however, decided I was not going to throw away my week of hard work and dedication.  Day 10 I mimicked the first three days and had all pureed foods and then finished Days 11 and 12 eating per the plan.  

I know this is a long review, but I wanted everyone to know that I was not perfect in following the reset.  I had some hiccups and bumps in the road, but pushed though and continued to rededicate myself to the plan.  In the end, I felt great, had tons of energy, and lost 7 lbs.  This is a fantastic tool to reset your nutrition health.  It is not a cure all; you definitely can’t do this then go back to eating pizza and burgers every day and expect to keep your energy levels up and the weight off.  You have to use Jes Reynolds’ 10-day Nutrition Reset as a starting point to make life long changes in the way you chose to fuel your body.  You need all the vitamins and nutrients from vegetables, fruit, and lean protein to help your body to live ultimately and this reset will put you on the right path to get there.  I plan on doing the reset again in a month or so and following it 100%.  Today, I’m using the things I learned and am making much better food choices for myself and my family every day.

I’ve been getting some very positive feedback about golf fitness class and though you might like to see how one of my students benefitted from just a few classes.   Over the last few years of teaching golf fitness, I’ve learned a lot…but one thing I’ve learned more than all the others is that there is some confusion out there as to whether golf specific fitness actually makes a difference to the average golfer.

I thought I’d share this email I received from my client Done who took part in my Golf Fitness class.  After just a few classes our schedules fell apart but Don was already working out regularly on his own so he implemented the exercises he had learned into his routine.  Here is what Don had to say:

Name: Don McGee
Age: 51
Years working out: 36
Years playing golf: 25

 

Why did you decide to take Jes’s golf fitness class?
I’m getting older and less flexible and I know that is why I was loosing distance,so I went to Jes for help in her golf fitness class.

 

What type of things did you learn in class?
Exercises that helped me with my hip turn and flexibility.  Jes showed me some things that helped me improve my lateral stability and increase my ability to turn on an axis point without losing posture.

 

What type of result did you get from using the exercises in class on a regular basis?
I am happy to say that I am now hitting the ball 20 to 25 yards longer with every club!!  Thanks to Jes!

As you can see, Don can already jump pretty high…lol!

It’s these type of emails that motivate me to keep giving presentations and putting out content that can help people improve their swing.  If you want to hear more about how fitness has improved my clients games, check out Doug’s testimonial…he is a great cheerleader for me!

Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 9.18.32 AMAfter having my second child I’ve been working for 7 months to lose the baby weight. I’ve taken numerous classes including orange theory, cardio kickboxing and total conditioning classes. I wanted to do a session w Jes to learn  how use weights correctly and how to get the most out of my workouts. We’ve had just one session and I’ve already learned a great lower body and ab routine and I was surprised that I was doing some of the basic exercises the wrong way. I think working with Jes one on one will really help me gain the knowledge I need to achieve my goals. Can’t wait for the next one!

My name is Karen Godwin, I’m over 40 and I’ve been training with Jes for 3 years. I had been preparing for my black belt in Tang Soo Do when I was sidelined due to a foot injury. I wanted to maintain my conditioning, add strength training and work on flexibility in a different setting to keep my fitness level high, so I signed up with Jes after getting referrals from two of my friends.

I’ve continued to train with Jes over the years because Jes motivates, pushes, entertains, inspires and teaches me – always helping me see that I can achieve my goals. I consider her a partner in optimizing my health and an amazing coach. In fact, she recently helped me ramp up and conquer my 2nd degree black belt test and earn Grand Champion in a Pan-American tournament. Without her partnership, I would not have achieved this!

Jes is different from other trainers I’ve worked with, many of whom seem to use a “workout in a box” without true needs-based personal customization. However, Jes takes a unique approach to designing a workout for me, she’s taken the time to really get to know what makes me tick, what physical challenges are unique to me and always varies our program to constantly push me forward. No workout is the same and I love it. While I HATE the rower, she pushes me to use it and I keep beating my own best times each week. She’s also super fun to talk to….we laugh a lot!

I don’t measure my results in numbers. But I can honestly say that she’s been a core part of my team for achieving amazing health and excellence in Tang Soo Do. I am the fittest I have ever been! Perhaps the most amazing result is that I am constantly surprising myself with what I am capable of doing….and she is the support and encouragement that helps me get there.

I’m a huge fan! Vote for Jes!

072114_nick_giardino_pr_07When I started training with Jes four years ago I was in the worst shape in my life and decided that I needed to change course. Now, at age 50, I am in the best shape ever. I run, play soccer and tennis, climb mountains, and can tackle any job around the house or yard without fear of injury. Pretty much anything I want to do, I can now do. I feel physically fit, steady, strong, capable and confident.

Jes is an amazing trainer. She is extremely knowledgeable and has a deep understanding of anatomy, physiology and kinesiology. Jes works on whole-body fitness: strength, stability, flexibility and endurance. She also understands the psychological aspects of fitness training. Jes is always positive and motivating. No matter what kind of mood I arrive in for my sessions, Jes’ attitude gets me ready to work hard. And even though she kicks my butt, I enjoy our training sessions and always leave feeling better than when I arrived.

I really don’t know where I’d be without Jes. She has helped change my life. Thank you, Jes!
