Jackie is a Utah native and mountain sports lover. A "dabbler" in all things outdoors - climbing, mountain biking, trail running, skiing - Jackie knows overall fitness is key to being able to take advantage of all the opportunities Utah mountains provide.

She focuses on single-side isolation to promote balance, and combines upper and lower body movement to target that "burns so good" feeling. She also focuses on proper form, taking time to show you how to get the most out of every exercise. So don't be surprised if she talks, a lot.
