“Being new to yoga, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But I did know that I needed to do something for my body and mind, with a busy work schedule that has me seated in front of a computer 8+ hours every day and a workout schedule that has me on my road bike for some 500 miles every month. All of this a recipe for sore muscles seemingly always on the verge of injury. Working with Jess has been awesome! She literally took me under her wing and taught me a host of positions that have helped introduce flexibility into this rigid rod that I call my body. But more importantly, she has taken the time to care about me as a person and to help me keep both life and body on track. If you think you want to start doing this…stop thinking and start doing!”

Bootcamp A full body workout on your lunch break. Great for strength gain, cardio, and mobility!
Kettlebell With one simple implement, we can target muscle imbalances, improve range of motion, rehabilitate nagging soft tissue injuries, and increase lean mass and strength. This weekly kettlebell workshop will broaden your individual horizons, get the heart rate up, and get us outdoors to enjoy the beautiful Seattle summer! Programming will be done for you, the only things you’ll need are a positive attitude and a great work ethic! Expect to work a little differently than you perhaps had in the past, kettlebells are a different animal from barbells or dumbbells. Let’s get stronger!
FUNCTIONAL FIT incorporates a wide variety of fitness disciplines to help strengthen and lengthen the body for more strenuous exercise. It includes movements from yoga, calisthenics, balance and corrective training to provide an experience that is safe and effective. If you have muscle imbalances, are a beginner, or you want to work on mobility, endurance, and balance issues, this is class for you. Bootcamp won’t be as strenuous as a lot of other conditioning classes but you’ll come out of it stronger and with a greater understanding of your own body.
STRENGTH & CONDITIONING We will utilize the 3 main compound lifts(squat, bench, and deadlift), olympic weightlifting (snatch and clean) and high intensity cardio intervals for one fun and sweaty workout. Each class will break down the movement, provide modifications and progressions into the full movement pattern, making it open to all fitness levels. Come have fun while getting stronger and faster at the same time!
