24 Apr May Member Spotlight: Jess C.
Meet our May Member Spotlight, Jess Cohen! Jess has been crushing fitness at KFIT for 2 1/2 years with her side kick and fellow bad ass Mom, Gail. Jess puts in 100% every class and you can often find her (runner at heart) putting in some extra credit on the treadmill. On a personal note, no one is realer than Jess when it comes to life with two kiddos. She is witty AF and always keeps us laughing with the one-liners. We are lucky to have such a strong, kind, and funny chick in our community!
I joined KFITt in October 2016 with my mom and best friend Gail. I had worked out at CrossFit 781 for 5 years before that (where I met Kerrie, Kim, and Erika) 3 amazing KFIT coaches. It was fate because my friends who owned CrossFit 781 were selling the gym and we need a new home.
I got pregnant with my second baby 15 minutes after I joined. It was such a nice change to have female trainers during pregnancy. The first time around big muscley men followed me around worried about me whenever I lifted heavy. I think as women we just truly trust each other and know that we know our own bodies. Ironically, I didn’t know at first whether or not I would like the all-female setting, but it has grown to be my favorite part of KFIT.
Gail and I absolutely love the gym and the community. My favorite days are when I can work out at 3:30 with my mom. Overall my nutrition has been here there and everywhere but one thing I never miss is a work out! I view my time at the gym as my therapy and anxiety medication…so thanks for keeping me sane ladies!
