Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I'm Andrea Jayne and am from Manchester, England. I lived there until my early 30s at which point I moved to Indiana, then South Carolina, before getting to Texas.
During that time I have had office, desk based jobs, and was also a teacher, which means I know what it's like to have a job that isn't very active, and one that keeps you on your feet all day! I've always had a strong interest in fitness and nutrition, so I decided to go back to college and turn my passion into my career.
In light of my work history, experience in fitness and personal training, and certifications, I have a wide knowledge base in developing appropriate fitness plans and nutrition guidelines: planning the most effective type of workouts based around your work schedule and ideas on when and what to eat. We all have limited time so I don't believe in spending hours working out. In addition, too much exercising can lead to over training and injury, so I coach people to workout effectively and efficiently. Personally, I use body weight exercises, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) style workouts, weights, and stretching. In addition to this, I also eat real food that isn't highly processed; I don't do fad diets, and if I can't pronounce it, I don't eat it!
My fitness training and corrective exercise certifications are through NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine), which is a nationally recognized body.
"NASM certifications are the most sought after in the personal trainer industry, as its systems and methodologies represent the “gold standard” in fitness. In fact, the organization’s certifications require the most comprehensive knowledge of human movement science, functional anatomy, physiology and kinesiology, as well as functional assessment and program design. NASM solution-focused certifications create trainers who enhance the performance and knowledge of their fitness staff, provide a consistent training experience, and help reduce injuries."
My health coach and weight management specialist certifications are through ACE (American Council on Exercise).
"[The Health Coach Certificate is the] only one accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), the same body that accredits certifications for athletic trainers, nurse practitioners, occupational therapists, registered dietitians and many other health professions. Additionally, the ACE Health Coach Certification is approved by the International Consortium for Health & Wellness Coaching (ICHWC), which is working toward creating a national standard to help further professionalize and advance the field of health and wellness coaching."
I am also a certified online trainer through the Online Trainer Academy.
