I wasn't always into fitness. In high school, I wasn't "that fit girl," I wasn't first-string choice in gym class, and though I was on the cross-country and swim teams, I was as back-of-the pack as they could have me lol. In college, working out was simply social and the all-you-can-eat dining hall meals helped create my soft freshman 15 physique! It was after college that things shifted. I was working membership sales at NYSC and started working out, taking classes, and counting points. I dropped 10 lbs and my physique completely changed. I became so passionate about fitness that I pursued my spin certification and started to teach cycle classes.
For the next decade, I created a career out of acting and fitness. I taught fitness classes at Crunch, NYSC, Palisades Fitness Center, and more. I secured agency representation with Bella Agency, Atlas Talent, Abrams Talent, and more. I was constantly on the go, jumping from auditions to classes to shoots to working from my laptop in-between. It was a crazy and wonderful lifestyle designed from the pursuit of two of my passions.
After earning my SAG card and taking a good, hard look at the last decade of my life, I decided to shift focus toward fitness first. I was in search of more stability, more control, and more impact. After I made this choice, it was full steam ahead. I earned my NASM certification, completed my first full-ironmman distance triathlon, earned my USA triathlon coach certification, was hired as a full-time Exercise Specialist for Goldman Sachs, earned my Precision Nutrition certification, and launched my own health coaching business.
I've found my calling in fitness and in deep health coaching. I still have many personal fitness goals and sweating is a part of my daily routine. While I learn and practice, working as a coach allows me to pass that value on to my students and clients. And for those ready to tackle the mental and lifestyle shifts necessary to make lasting change, I can offer deep health coaching through Precision Nutrition's platform. I'm excited to work with anyone from anywhere who is ready to Sweat with Jeanette!
