Welcome to The Team

Jessie Smith

Jessie began her fitness training with traditional Chinese Kung Fu. She trained, taught and competed in this art form for many years.  Her very popular Cardio Kickboxing class was born from her martial arts training.  From there, she embarked on various fitness classes and styles from TRX, Bootcamp, Barre, Pilates and now Water Fitness. Pilates is now her main focus, but likes to mix things up with various aerobic classes and workshops.

"I believe it's important to protect our spine.  We have fallen away from good posture and daily movement of the body which can compress the vertebrae in spine.  Strength training the muscles around the spine and core can help keep the spine safe, and minimize back pain."

Meet Jessie in Aqua Power on Sunday's 10:30 - 11:30AM!

"I am happy to report that in my six swimming events at the National Senior Olympics in Albuquerque last week, I won six medals - three GOLDS in the Backstroke - one of which broke the Nationals record in my age bracket of 85 to 89.   I also earned one Silver and two Bronze medals in three Freestyle events.  It was a thrilling week in ABQ with family and friends from Santa Fe."
