Sometimes we don’t see changes in ourselves because they happen gradually. But, if we take a step back everything falls into focus. That’s what happened with Desiree and this is what she had to say about her transformation:
I’ve been working with Jessika for over three years now. I am 37 years old and I can honestly say that I have never felt better. Of course I’ve had some ups and downs in my healthy lifestyle journey but one thing has remained constant; being in touch with Jessika and continuing to work her program to the best of my ability.
I did my first Spartan Sprint in 2013. I thought I was going to die. I didn’t even want to finish. A year later, I started working with Jess and signed up for another Spartan Race. That race was a little better. The following year I received my first trifecta; I completed all 3 Spartan races in one year, Sprint, Super and Beast. Since then, not only have I conquered the mountain that I wanted to quit on 3 years ago, I’ve also completed the most difficult Spartan Beast they offer in Killington, VT. I remember how terrified I was to even think about participating in a Spartan Super or Beast just a couple of years ago, now I can’t wait for them.
I’ve always enjoyed exercise but it wasn’t until I started working with Jessika that I actually understood why I need to perform certain exercises and eat certain foods at certain times. It sounds complicated but it’s really not. Not only am I stronger as a person but I’ve learned so much about nutrition. I make better choices for me and my family. I know I will have more success if I prep and log my food. Jessika has taught me this. I also know that I wouldn’t be where I am today without the encouragement from Jessika and the support from the groups that she created. I am eternally grateful.
