About Jessica Cooke

Fitness Coach, Podcaster, Mum and Champion Stressbuster 😉

Hi there!

I'm Jessica Cooke and I help successful women over 40 get fit, healthy & strong, while mastering the stress their busy lives inevitably create.

For many years I gave everything to work and family. When somebody asked, I gave.

Part of me enjoyed that - or thought I did - always being there for everyone made me feel needed.

Yet at the same time, I wasn't happy.

Working hard growing my own business while raising a young family, I was flat out.

And the stress that was building led to so many unhealthy habits; scrolling, eating for comfort, drinking wine to 'reward' myself after a long day.

Life was becoming less fun and more grind, and there were times when the alarm clock sounded I felt like I was waking up in the film 'Groundhog Day'.

I knew how to work out - I even knew what I should be eating.

Yet the stress led to bad choices which inevitably led back to square one.

Once I finally realised that I needed to tackle how I managed stress at the SAME time as tackling my fitness and health, only then did everything come together.

No more visits to square one.

That's what I want for you, and that's the type of info. you'll find on this site. 

If that sounds good, make sure you check out my podcast here and when you're ready to take the brave step towards asking for my help, click on the button below.
