Jessica Cahill

With a Bachelors of Science in Health & Exercise from The College of New Jersey and a Bachelors of Science in Dietetic from Kansas State University, Jessica will help anybody reach their fitness and health goals.Her credentials being a RD (Registered Dietitian), CSCS (Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist from NSCA). Favorite Food: Beets, ask me why... Sports and nutrition are not just a career but her life. Jessica has been active since a young age always outside with friends and family playing sports, swimming, biking and running. One Christmas Jessica said the easy bake oven was not cutting it and she asked Santa for all "real" cooking and baking tools. With a little garden and some family recipes most of her time inside was in the kitchen experimenting. Fast forward though State Championships and Nation Championship in Women's Lacrosse & Field Hockey, Jessica found that food was often not considered when it came to training and recovery. As a personal goal to be the best and to lead others to success Jessica left the world of strength training to become a Registered Dietitian. While studying it became clear that nutrition and exercise are more then just performance but disease prevention. The world of health and wellness if full of magic pills and misleading claims. Her goal is to help individuals navigate the maze to find a lifestyle that fits their needs and leads them to their own success.
