My name is Jesse Evjenth, and I coach people who struggle to stay fit on their own.
To tell you the truth, I’ve struggled myself, and I continue to find new challenges that steer me off my own fitness path. But those experiences, plus having personally worked with over 200 clients in my career over the past five years, have helped me to develop a deep appreciation for the human condition that keeps me motivated to keep going and learning. In total, my clients have lost nearly 2 metric tonnes of body fat since I became a fitness coach. But what's more astonishing is how much their lives have changed as a result. In each new client, I learn to see the divide between the person they see in the mirror today and the person they dream to see in their future.
My mission is to build an active, fulfilling life for myself; and to empower others to do the same.
I've learned that I am happiest when I am experiencing new and exciting physical challenges and expanding my mind in new ways; and most fulfilled when working to teach and empower others to do the same. That's why I love what I do!
As a child born with asthma, I often struggled with keeping up in recess, gym class and sports. As a teenager I often struggled with diet manipulation, depression and body image issues. As a young adult I often struggled with identity, choosing a career, and broken hearts. Luckily, I have met some amazing teachers, coaches, and leaders who became my mentors and role models. They helped me to discover my true self and direction; and that my passion of coaching others had been inside me all along.
When I work with a new client, I try to learn as quickly as possible the deep down reasons of why they want to workout, or look a certain way, or lose a certain number of pounds. Then we get started addressing the obstacles that prevented them from reaching that goal in the past. I arm them with knowledge and continued support; and work with them to build a flexible program that over time evolves into the lifestyle that will allow them to keep up or surpass the goals we worked hard to achieve.
And hey, thanks for being here. I genuinely appreciate it... and you!
