I originally hired Jessi because I was working out obsessively and eating minimally but I was not losing any weight. I was frustrated and looking for professional advice - and I got so much more than what I thought I needed. Jessi helped me finally grasp that it's not how much you put into your body, but what you put in your body. She helped me to bring joy back into eating and life back into my workouts. I have awareness about my body now that I have never had before, which helps guide me through what my body really needs in terms of movement and the type of workout that would be the most beneficial at that time. She also helped me to release some of the shame I didn't even realize I had around food, and to be more accepting of the body I have today instead of the body I wish I had.
"I can not say enough good things about Jessi. Not only did I learn a tremendous amount about nutrition, food and the science behind it all. My goal when I worked with Jessi was not short term weight loss, but rather to learn how to maintain a healthy way to eat long term that was not about food deprivation. What Jessi taught me, I consider life changing. In addition, she provides a safe place to work out issues around food that can be challenging and perplexing. And she does so in a supportive, non judgmental way. I give Jessi five stars!"
"Jessi Haggerty is everything you could want in a dietitian and personal trainer — she's an expert and she's personable and realistic. She's encouraging, but not in a mean, "boot camp" type of way. And she doesn't expect you to stop eating or count calories. In fact, she's full of tips to help you eat better and feel fuller!"
"I have spent seven years in and out of the ER with partial intestinal obstructions and for the last two years on a clear liquid diet or a bland diet. Physically and mentally I was losing energy but I refused to give up hope and refused to give up my passion in life - dancing. Six months later I am a new person. I am juicing, eating healthy and have not had an ER visit in months! I would not be telling this story had it not been for Jessi. She is intelligent, thinks out of the box, funny, motivating, listened to me, set up a plan for me and never let me give up on my goal. We worked together to achieve this outcome. . She's a gem that should not be hidden!"
"Jessi is extremely knowledgable... She worked with me to make a customized nutrition and exercise plan that fit my body and life. Jessi went above and beyond to make sure I understood how to exercise effectively to avoid injury and gain lean muscle without having to spend hours in the gym. She is also extremely fun and motivating, which really helped me stay on track!"
"I have had the pleasure of working with Jessi Haggerty many times over the last year, and each time I was impressed with her knowledge, professionalism, friendliness, and overall great attitude! Jessi is clearly very passionate about healthy living and whether it's through a one-on-one session, a workshop, or even a retreat she has the amazing ability to connect with people and inspire them to make lasting changes in their diets, fitness routines, and overall lives. I am happy to say Jessi is a good friend of mine and someone that I look forward to working with in the future and would highly recommend!"
When I came to Jessi, I was really at the end of my rope as far as diets and body image are concerned. I had struggled with cycling through episodes of feeling very obsessed about my food intake and exercise regimen, followed by seasons of feeling extremely apathetic regarding my diet and exercise. I had a lot of resentment and shame towards both my lifestyle and body. Jessi’s comfortable and nonjudgmental approach made each session enjoyable and effective in helping me release shame and guilt around my food and lifestyle choices, and has helped me find a really incredible balance of eating and exercising based on what works for me as an individual. I now feel so much more comfortable in my body and in the way I choose to nourish and move my body everyday.
