Happy Monday to all! I hope everyone had such a lovely weekend.

I had dinner and wine with some friends Friday night, got in a somewhat errrrrr good strength sesh on Saturday, ate some REALLY good japanese food at night (KOKO’s Kitchen is  my husband and my new fav here in SLC if you live here 🙂 ) Got our adorable little 5 foot Christmas tree (mmmm love the smell of Christmas!) ) And then Sunday did a little Christmas shopping! OH. and forgot to mention..Friday I went out of my comfort zone and stuck my hand down the garbage disposal. hahahaha.

Happy Monday,


Introducing JBrauzFit!

Hi guys!

My name is Jess and I am a Certified Personal Trainer who lives in SLC, UT with my handsome hubby Andrew and adorable little black cat Pinot. Yup, my cat was named after Pinot Noir- because I love wine.  I am a lover of a great cab or sauv blanc, a strong IPA, milk chocolate (not your typical brands), strong coffee, fresh mountain air, yoga, hiking, swimming and above everything else, getting strong. A huge passion of mine is lifting heavy, and empowering others to do so as well. I love working with people and helping shape their perception on training, nutrition and mindset.  I currently train clients at a local gym and also coach youth swimmers at a local club USA swim team.

Recently I have been reflecting on women’s perception of the word “strong”. Strength is not only defined by physical ability. It encompasses so much more than that, such as mental power, courage and confidence. My goal is to help each and every woman find that inner strength that lies within themselves. I hope to inspire women about strength training through pictures, videos, and articles. I will also talk about lifestyle, food, fashion, my cat Pinot, and most importantly laugh and have fun along the way. Just don’t take life so seriously.

I would love to hear from you!  Please feel free to leave me any comments on the blog posts. If you have any further questions or are in the SLC area, please feel free to email me at .
