Small Business Highlight: Fit 4 Life Park City
The holidays are upon us. We will spend the next two months (at least) eating every delicious treat we can see. It’s also cold outside and, aside from hitting the slopes, we also tend to become a bit more sedentary than during the summer months. While wrapping that oddly-shaped present or fighting the crowds at the mall may FEEL like a workout, Fit 4 Life personal trainer Jess McCurdy wants to really help you break a sweat and keep your mind, body, and spirit balanced—especially during this stressful time of year. Why wait for January 1st?
Jess is a mom of four boys. Like so many women, she battled postpartum depression after the birth of her first son. Her doctor suggested she try running. She had her son in November and made it her goal to run her first half marathon in August. She didn’t win by any stretch — but she did finish! She says that began a new passion for distance running and fitness and that she found community and support through her running friends. Her goal is to bring that same sense of community to her clients. It doesn’t matter where you are in your fitness journey. Jess will work with you to create goals that fit your body and lifestyle. Fitness is about improving all aspects of your life—not making it harder!
Jess offers several training programs, called GRIT, with the goal to:
Grow your confidence
Renew your spirit
Ignite your power and
Transform your body in 2018
Her various group programs can all be done online so you can work it into your schedule, wherever you live. You’ll get videos with workouts and yoga plans. You’ll also get weekly calls with Jess to help coach you through the next week. And these programs aren’t just about exercise. She will provide you with tasty and easy meal plans to make sure you’re taking in the nutrients you need to power your workouts. Each training program also has a private Facebook group, where you can share your progress and encourage others also participating in the program.
If you need the in-person interaction to hold you accountable, Jess also offers several classes weekly in Park City.
In our last Small Business Highlight, we told you about The Paint Mixer. Its goal is to help people improve their mental health through art. And now — you can celebrate the art of movement. Jess offers several different classes at The Paint Mixer studio on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. You can check out her weekly schedule of group classes here.
And because fitness isn’t just about your physical health, Jess also wants to provide a place for her students to connect with each other. After all, she credits the camaraderie she developed with other distance runners as the thing she needed to push through wanting to quit while preparing for her first half marathon. When you sign up for a Bootcamp punch card, you get access to her classes at The Paint Mixer as well as a Facebook group where everyone can post recipes, goals, and words of encouragement.
As you achieve things that seem physically impossible, you will gain the confidence to push through other goals in your life that seem out of reach. Jess promises to help you set those fitness goals and figure out a plan to make them a reality. That confidence will then spill over into all aspects of your life—improving your overall health and wellness.
