A little more:

Certified Personal Trainer in Long Island, Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist
My name is Jamie and I am an ACE certified personal trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist. Before discovering my passion for health and fitness, I was overweight, unfit and unhappy with my appearance. I never exercised and ate fast food like it was my job!
One day, everything changed after my friend dragged me to a cardio kickboxing class. Something wonderful and amazing woke up inside of me. For the first time in my life, I realized that I was a strong, capable woman full of so much potential. This began my quest for a healthy lifestyle and after 1 year of hard work and dedication I lost over 20lbs and radically changed my life for the better.
Today, as a personal trainer, I am able to pass on the secrets of my success to my clients.
For the last several years, I have helped countless women achieve their weight-loss goals, revamp their diet, and improve their entire lifestyle. My workouts are a blend of fun and challenging exercises, which are customized to meet the clients’ needs and achieve the greatest calorie burn! We will use a mix of suspension training, kickboxing, kettle bells and even the occasional obstacle course to keep my clients fully engaged and driven towards success!
Jamie works with Strong Healthy Woman Long Island Personal Training clients in the privacy of their homes and outdoors as well!
