Jess, commonly referred to as Stanny or J-Mo, has always had a passion for all things competitive and athletic. In high school, she served as track captain and played varsity basketball as well as varsity cheer. After college, Jess continued her athletic development as a competitive runner with adding the NYC Marathon to her list of accomplishments. Although she had a love for running things really peaked when she discovered Intrepid Gym in 2012 to get her in shape for her wedding. Through Intrepid, Jess has found a love for HIIT training and Olympic lifting. She started staying after classes to work on lifts and skills with her 5:45am #fitfam and was reaping the benefits from all the extra work. By helping motivate her friends she quickly realized she wanted to coach and inspire others. When she’s not breaking a sweat at Intrepid, she is making TV shows for a living, killing it on Instagram, and obsessing over her rescue pup, Buckley.
