Welcome to my page, thanks so much for checkin it out! Iím Jackie and Iím a 28 year old wife, career woman, student, fitness coach, & Turbo Kick Instructor. I am totally random, love to laugh, and in my own mind am pretty good at making other people laugh (sometimes Iím the comedian and the audience, but hey, ya gotta have fun and laugh at yourself sometimes, right?)! I am also pretty sure that there isnít one song out there that I havenít messed up the lyrics to! Speaking of songs, I LOVE music! My music taste fits me Ė RANDOM! Iím mainly a rocker chic (hey, I have 8 tattoos, did I mention that?!), but also love grunge, 80s, 90s, 90s R&B & rap, Turbo (yes, I consider it its own genre!), country, latin music. I also love funny shows like Family Guy, The Office, Wipeout, Two and a Half Men, and also have an addiction to old 90210 re-runs!
Iím also that crazy dog lady that loves my dog Max like a child! You know, the kind that sees a dog and squeaks out ďPUPPYĒ and runs towards it. If you have a dog, you know what Iím talking aboutÖyou have probably picked up your dog and run from me or someone like me while out for a walk at some point in your life, wondering why is this crazy lady running at my dog?!
I was born and raised in the lovely town of Erie, PA and have a sister who is only 18 months younger than me, sheís my BEST friend! Our favorite thing to do together is drive around with my iPod and sing and dance to whatever comes on! And my Mom is just amazingÖsheís my hero! She is a single parent and the 3 of us are very close. We have a huge familyÖmy Mom has 8 brothers and sisters and last time I tried to count, we had 20 some cousins! Itís fun and crazy at the same time.
I graduated from Pitt in 2006 with a Bachelorís in Accounting and a Bachelorís in Spanish. I know, strange combination! I sadly donít use Spanish in my accounting job, but todavia puedo hablarlo y comprenderlo! We live in Pittsburgh, and Iím accountant at a bank. I got married to my wonderful husband in 2009 and we bought a house 4 months later! My husband is amazing, and I am so lucky to have him in my life! We love going to rock concerts, watching football, hanging out with friends, and just having fun! Right now I am also going to school part time to get my Masters in Business Administration. I thrive on being busy and challenged!
Aside from working full time, I also am a health and fitness enthusiast! I didnít always feel this way. I always had an unhealthy relationship with food, and I went from one end of the spectrum to the other when it came to food. And exerciseÖit was either non-existent or in reaction to a not so healthy meal. In high school, I struggled with depression and low self esteem and spent my time constantly feeling inadequate. I also had an eating disorder, which thanks to the support of my amazing family, I overcame! However, I still struggled with low self esteem and continued to yo-yo diet all throughout high school. When I went to college, I ended up on the other side of the spectrum! I became so focused on schoolwork, working part time, and spending time with my friends that I stopped caring about my health and gained 30 lbs. I met my husband my last year of college and he fell in love with me for who I was, even though I was still not happy with how I looked and felt.
So, when I graduated in 2006, I had had enough. I decided to take control and quit being unhappy with myself. I started eating healthy and exercising, and something amazing happened. I not only lost 30 lbs and felt healthy, but I felt amazing ABOUT MYSELF! I no longer had those nagging thoughts that I am not good enough, that Iím not pretty enough or thin enough. I started liking myself for who I was and stopped comparing myself to other people. I suddenly had confidence. And 4 years later, I still feel great and Iím happy with myself and Iím able to live my life without feeling like hiding!
Itís been an incredible journey and Iím loving life! Iím still on my fitness journey, still working on toning up, but Iím happy and having fun doing it! Now, I am sharing it with others as a fitness coach and a Turbo Kick instructor! I LOVE helping others on their fitness journey, itís such an AMAZING feeling to watch people reach their goals! If I can help you on your fitness journey, please let me know! I love talking to people and would love to chat with you about anything, whether health and fitness related or notÖremember, I love random things and am easily entertained!!

My goal is to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I have lost 25 lbs to date and am just working on thinning out my midsection and building lean muscle.
I eat healthy, around 1500-1800 calories per day. I workout 6 days a week. My current workout program is Insanity & ChaLean Extreme by Beachbody and it's killer! I am also a big fan of P90X, Turbo Jam, Turbo Kick, PiYo, Turbo Fire, Chalean Extreme and anything else Chalene Johnson does!
