Humans of Nantucket
What is your passion?
I would say my passion is fitness and being a personal trainer. I just like exercising with people and getting them to move. I like getting people to see something new inside of themselves and make them feel stronger. Fitness for sure!
Why did you choose to be a personal trainer?
It had a lot to do with Nantucket Health Club specifically. I just liked going there, the people that worked there, the owner, and my friend Jonathan who worked there. It just felt like a family. I was so comfortable exercising, getting stronger myself, and learning. Then I had an epiphany one day. I was gardening and I just thought you know oh my god I think I am going to become a personal trainer. It just feels right. I am obsessed with exercising right now. I was bringing people to the health club with me every other week. They made a joke like who is going to last the longest with Jasmine. They would laugh at me every week. It just felt so amazing for me that I wanted to share that with other people. I wanted to show people that you can become stronger and stay healthy and fit.
