Face of FITNESS Contest Finalists
Pages in this Story:
Jessica Mason, 27, San Diego
A recent fitness accomplishment: Becoming a personal trainer and then becoming a group exercise instructor!
A personal "I Did It!" moment: Becoming a finalist in this competition :)
A health challenge she's had to overcome: Accepting who I am and the body I have has meant being okay with not being "perfect." I now just strive for the best I can be.
Favorite (healthy) things to eat: Greek yogurt and homemade granola.
Favorite workouts: I love mixing it up: Hiking, swimming, hot yoga, barre, strength training -- it's something new every day!
Personal fitness motto: "You can do it!" and "Get over yourself!"
How she stays motivated: To be totally honest, a lot of my exercise motivation is to be able to eat more and treat myself! Plus, I know that after a workout I will feel more balanced.
How she influences others to be healthier: Being a trainer, I try to give my clients the best knowledge and tools I have. Consistency is key, so I try to instill that in them by texting them constant reminders of what they should be doing!
On her fitness bucket list: Mini-triathlon and skydiving.
What she tells her clients: Being "fit" is so much more than how you look. It's a lifestyle. It's trying to make the best decisions for yourself everyday and fitting that into your schedule. Exercising might not always look and feel as ideal as you might wish, but every little bit adds up to create a fitter you.
