Instead of looking back negatively on how a stressful time in our lives may have left us, Jessi Albin founder of Jessi FIT Pilates, shares with us how it can lead us to a positive life changing experience for our passion and career.
"I was born in Brooklyn, NY and I began my Fitness career after watching the Twin Towers fall on 9/11/01. I ran out of my office and onto 34 Street, with black smoke filling the sky - totally scared for my life. I was working a job I didn’t feel connected to in the fashion industry and this was a sign for me to not only run from danger but run towards new beginnings! Fitness was, my love and passion. I loved feeling confident in my own skin from working out and I wanted to help others do the same! I haven't looked back since that run and I've trained thousands of women in both New York and San Francisco in my 17 year career. My mission is to share Pilates and positivity via home workouts to millions of women via YouTube and Instagram.
My current training routine is a combination of Pilates, Yoga and functional training. I walk everywhere which is rare now that I live in California but I don't have a car! Currently I am working to improve my fire dancing and flow art practice. Yes, I dance with fire in my hands. I am working on my splits for it too!
Fitness should flow into your life and movement should be a positive experience. Strengthen stretch and smile is my motto. In a world that is designed to bring you down I believe it’s important that women find ways to build their bodies and minds properly. Color is a huge source of inspiration to me and I try to use creative ways to keep you moving on the path to fitness fun!"
