Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica McCall.
Jessica, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I didn’t know it at the time, but looking back, fitness has always been apart of my life. I grew up as an all-around athlete – I’ve danced, ran track, & participated in intramural basketball and football.
I would say my passion for fitness really started in middle school. I immediately fell in love with the sport of track and field at a young age and knew right away that I wanted to be a hurdler. As it turns out, I wouldn’t be able to do so until about high school. So, for the time being, I became a distance and cross country runner. Everything was going great & I eventually began to fall in love with it, until about 9th grade. I started to resent it and lost all passion towards the sport until I was re-introduced to the hurdles. I put my all into training my body from being a distance runner to becoming a short sprinter. This was the first metal and physical challenge I experienced. Shortly after, I became one of the best on the team.
Point being, if there’s anything my journey has taught me, it’s to be patient, never give up, and constantly find new ways to better myself. I believe that these factors have helped me to get to where I am today and are helping me to move forward in life.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
My journey hasn’t been the smoothest, but it hasn’t been the worst either. I would say some of the biggest challenges happened when I first began my path on becoming a personal trainer. Figuring out what I wanted, where I wanted to go, and determining what I wanted my business to represent took some serious thought, but once I figured everything out it all fell into place!
iFlexx Fitness – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
So my business is iFlexx Fitness. I am a personal trainer and I specialize in weight loss, weight gain, flexibility training, and resistance training. I am most proud of being known for more than the typical “female trainer”. Ever since I started my brand, I’ve been working hard to not box myself in as a trainer who only trains women. Don’t get me wrong, I love to train all women alike (and I absolutely love my female clients), but I simply want more. I believe in being an all-around personal trainer and my work shows just that.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Anyone who has not failed at anything has probably never succeeded at anything either. I define true success as not being afraid to fail, and if or when you do, not being afraid to get back up and try again.
