Corporate SWEAT

Corporate SWEAT is a workout that promotes physical, mental, and emotional strength at your place of employment. You will be pushed to where you never thought was possible and then a little more. Jess provides a one hour group strength training workout that will have you smiling while you SWEAT with your colleagues! The group session is focused around TUT (Time Under Tension) Circuit Training. By using this training style, the classes are designed to work with all fitness levels to be challenging and not intimidating, and strongly encourages education behind each exercise.

Jess believes in order for anyone to have success with the fitness lifestyle, the top priority needs to be built around having a COMMUNITY. When you have a community that promotes personal, emotional, and mental growth, you have everything. A community holds you accountable to SHOW UP and put in the work. Team work, community, health/physical assessments, and personal growth are incorporated with each of the workouts. Some days you will show up 40% and some days 120%; regardless of how your day unravels, SHOW UP for yourself. #ishowup 

Group training is affordable; you are privileged to afford the personalization and education from a Personal Trainer, be provided with modifications (if needed), and still able to budget for other things that can impact your health positively, such as your diet choices. In addition, having your organization on board, cuts down on the per session rate for everyone! 

Jess encourages valuing your body and what it can do for you every day! Putting your physical health first, will create emotional and mental balance in your day to day activities.

CLIENT VALUE STATEMENTS from Corporate SWEAT with HealthPartners:

“I am one of those who will sign up or purchase a work out package, go a few times and then call it a day.  Or even go to the gym for 15 minutes, just to get my 12 visits per month in.  Sweat with Jess is a level of accountability that I need.  I actively look for the easy way out.  Jess sees through me.  She sees what I am capable of and she pushes me.  She knows when I have reached my peak, and when I can push out a few more. I am so thankful that this opportunity came around when it did.  I was overwhelmed with all of the roles that I play; leader, wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, voice of reason.  These roles no longer stress me out, because I am able to dedicate an hour a day to me.  An hour, not in front of the TV on the couch, or playing trucks with my son, or worrying.  This is an hour that I get to concentrate on no one but myself.  This program has more than just the fitness benefit.  I am a better leader, a better mom, a better wife, but most importantly a better me.  I could go on and on….

#ISHOWUP to find confidence in myself, to be held accountable for what I set out to do, and to see just what I am capable of doing.  #ISHOWUP to fight depression, quiet the negative talk in my mind, quit smoking, and to hold my head up high because I am worth it.”

“#ISHOWUP because Jess helps me identify and tear down the myriad of excuses I’ve built up slowly and surely throughout the years.  She has the ability to look into the heart of who I am, and introduce me to that which has been holding me back.  Is she soft-spoken … nah!  Passive?  … Nope.  Is she brash? Does she kick my butt waaaaay beyond where it’s ever been kicked?  Push me to the edge – then boots me over?  YUP!!!!  Victim, Apathy, Complacency-EVICTED!  This is Jess.  FUNNY, COMPASSIONATE ENCOURAGING. Passionate about healthy body, healthy mind. She helped me identify those unconscious habits that were slowly breaking me down, and she motivated me to crush them.  #ISHOWUP to become the strongest, healthiest, most-motivated and truly authentic self.  I THANK YOU, Jess – from the bottom of my heart, for helping me become oh-so-ALIVE and STRONG!  #YOU.ARE.AWESOME.”

“If you would have asked me 12 weeks ago if I would be where I am today, the answer would be a boisterous laugh followed by a hard no!

I don’t run. I don’t do sit ups. I don’t want to sweat! Yuck!

But now …

I run. I do sit ups. I sweat – and I’m ok with all of it! In fact, I look forward to it!

I’m now the healthiest I have been in years. Despite others being able to see a difference (which, don’t get me wrong, is a GREAT feeling), I can see a difference! I’m stronger, healthier, my blood pressure is normal again, I find myself making healthier choices in food, I’ll take the stairs rather than wait for the elevator, etc.

I am a strong, healthy, confident woman and I could not have done this without Jess. She reminds us that we CAN do anything we put our hearts and minds to.

2 hours a week with this gal, and she will change your life. She has the ability to make you feel like you can conquer the world. Without Jess … well… that’s a world I don’t want to be a part of. Thanks Jess, I adore you.”

“#ishowup because there are SO many things about my health that I can’t control.  I can’t control my ability to ovulate and finally be a mom.  I can’t control generations of mental illness and depression.  I can’t control how my thyroid will function. 

I can control how hard I work and how well I eat.  I read somewhere that food is the most abused anti-anxiety drug and exercise the most underused anti-anxiety drug.  Change that to depression, and it is me.  Change it to infertility, and it is me.  I have found peace in the sidewalks and trails I run on and in a parking lot in Bloomington.  Was I scared on that first workout?  Of course I was.  And I was in the best shape of my life!  Was I so sore I couldn’t sit down?  Was it worth it?  Is it worth the missed sleep and even the missed time with my husband?  YES.  Because two hours a week now could mean years later.  Yet another thing I can’t control, but you can’t stop me from trying.”

“#ISHOWUP to combat postpartum depression and change my lifestyle.  SWEAT Bootcamp has taught me about creating balance in my life, strengthening my mind and body, and learning to be a role model for my kids.  Strengthening my mind and body has helped me find purpose and joy in my career and with my family.  The SWEAT community and lifestyle is amazing!”
