Cryosuana: Chill AF

Cryo-what? Cryotherapy… Sounds like some sort of Marvel comic event where we will be introduced to the new Iceman character, no wait, he already exists (cue weird faces, why does she know that?) Stop judging, my brother is a comic book geek and worked in a comic book store for

JESS GLAZER – Brand Launch!

Hey there, thanks for popping over. I’m so grateful that you’re here supporting me and kicking off this brand launch! So, I’ve been working tirelessly on new programs, creating magic with my incredible graphic designer, placing product orders, getting the word out, and of course updating the website. Once I

“FIT” TRIPS

FIT TRIPS (Friendship Inspired Training) ….cute, catchy, fun, but what are they and why?!?! Let’s get real. This is how it all went down. I love to try new things. I love to meet new people. I love to experiment with fitness classes. I love to sweat. I love to

Waist trainers…. HELL NO!

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably seen everyone from Snooki to the Kardashian clan wearing waist trainers, cinchers, corsets, whatever you want to call them. They’re not only wearing them, but they’re endorsing and promoting these torture devices like they’re the beez neez. Mic drop, it’s a BIG

Speed Bumps Ahead…

Ok, so we all know that life isn’t always smooth and the majority of us at some point have said “when it rains it pours”. It isn’t strange that while searching for a living kidney donor for my mom, mentally preparing for her transplant, organizing life post transplant, planning my

Bring on the overwhelm…

I’m sure you’ve all felt overwhelmed at some point; probably more often than any of us would like to admit. When we become overwhelmed, we are completely taken over by mind and/or feelings. Although this generally has a negative connotation like being overwhelmed and stressed with work, finances, or time;

it’s MY turn

Ahhh, I am so, so, so excited to be introducing my new program to all of you! I wanted to put something together that I could give back to everyone as a “thank you” for all of your support and love during my competition prep, business launch, wedding planning, and

Jess’s Favorite Things

What’s the deal with gratitude?

Gratitude seems to be all the buzz these days. It’s not a new concept, but it’s been spreading like wildfire; so what gives? According to a recent study from Harvard and Forbes Magazine, practicing regular gratitude can have the following positive effects: • General happiness and optimism increase • A

per-se-ver-ance

“Seeing the finish line and having the strength to reach it. It’s what we do.” -unknown I’m not sure that I’m looking for the “finish line”, because my goals are bigger than just reaching a line and stopping. However, I have definitely set myself up with small water station goals

Eat, Sleep, Pull-Up, Repeat

Pull-ups happen to be one of my favorite exercises. Not just because they’re a compound movement that exhausts the back, shoulders, an arms all at once; but because they make you feel like a strong and sexy ninja beast! Any exercise that incorporates manipulating your total body weight should be

Fitness in the Park

To keep things interesting and keep yourself motivated, change it up! Check out my Fitness in the Park video for inspiration :0) Remember when you a were kid and everything was a toy, anywhere was a playground, and a cardboard box was a castle?!? Get back to your roots, make

What does strong mean to you?

Last weekend, I attended a fitness camp. This was no ordinary fitness camp, this was STRONG CAMP hosted by the incredible and inspiring Strong Fitness magazine. The basic rundown…. 40 women from all over the world (yes, my own roommate flew in from Scotland!) of all shapes, sizes, and fitness

Spiralizing with my momma

Like many of you, I celebrated Memorial Day yesterday surrounded by loved ones and food! Mike and I spent the day with my parents and of course our furry puppies! We were spoiled with gorgeous weather and BBQ’ing. My mom had prepared some delicious food for the boys; you know

What’s in my fridge?

My Sunday routine is generally the same; sleeping later than 5am, getting an awesome stress-free workout in, enjoying time with Mike, doing laundry, hitting up multiple grocery stores, food prepping for the week, writing, reading, relaxing, recharging, dinner with my parents and taking a nice Epson Salt bath! As we

10 Random Facts about ME!

Far too often we get caught up in the daily grind that we forget about the little things. You know, the things that make us unique and special. I decided that this week I wanted to share 10 random facts that you probably don’t know about me. Hopefully, this will

Are you TIRED of the same old workout?

Have you ever seen the crazy events and races where people are flipping gigantic tracker tires? How about the World’s Strongest Man Competition where it looks like they can throw 800 pound tires around like they’re foam Frisbees? Okay, so what’s the deal with that anyway? Workouts like this have

S-T-R-E-T-C-H it out!

So, what’s the deal with stretching anyway? Like many health topics, the debate on stretching is always changing. One day it’s bad for you and another it’s the best thing since sliced bread. From my own research, years of training, and personal experiences, stretching has always helped me. Here are

My Favorite Kitchen Gadgets

Everyone is always talking about meal prepping, and to be completely honest, I have found that meal prepping really does make my life so much easier. Think about a pineapple… mmmm…when it’s sitting on the counter it looks yummy, but do you really want to deal with cutting it? Instead

Beat those winter blues

For so many of us this time of year is dark, cold, snowy, and basically depressing. While this may not apply to everyone, it certainly happens to enough of us that it needs to be addressed! Living in the North East, I completely understand how miserable winters can be and
