Every person has a starting point; however, his or her end points and goals may not be in sight. I work beside each of my clients to create and accomplish definitive and attainable goals. Together, we follow manageable progressions, celebrate small successes, and build confidence. I believe that we train our bodies to handle what daily life presents. And then some. We should always be prepared, ready, and willing. Moving, using, and coordinating our bodies enables us to develop strengths, define personal limitations, and cope with internal and external stressors.

    This stuff works! For most weeks the past three years I’ve been participating in personal or group training sessions at Action Potential Fitness. Jessica Miller the owner and lead trainer has put together varied exercises that contain elements of aerobic, core, agility, balance, strength, and flexibility. I’ve noticed increased performance in all activities - road cycling, mountain biking, kiteboarding, and both off-road and trials motorcycle riding. I’m simply able to execute skills more effectively resulting in less fatigue and fewer mishaps. When things do go wrong and injury occurs, usually due to operator error, we’ve been able to adjust the program to work around the effected areas and make forward progress. More recently I joined several other studio members tracking calories consumed and exercise on MyFitnessPal.com. Having the direct data feedback and peer support on this program were essential to making consistent progress; no fads or gimmicks, just hard work and measured results. Over the past 75 days I lost 15 pounds and achieved results that match my best masters racing performances. I now consider these exercises and eating habits a part of my life, enabling this 50-something athlete many more years of fun and competition. I recommend a similar program for anyone at any level wanting to achieve and maintain an active life.

    Sincerely,

    I have always considered myself "just a walker" because I never felt that strong. I was never much of an athlete and just assumed that was how I was wired. Turns out that I needed the right trainer to bring out my potential! I am never able to push myself as hard as Jess does. She is great at encouraging me and pushing me to see that I CAN do it. I love working out with her and always feel great. We only have 1 body in this life and we need to take care of it. Jess is the gal for the job. I HIGHLY recommend Jess!!

    2 years after giving birth to my last child, I was 20lbs heavier then I was the day after I gave birth. I was so incredibly depressed and chronically fatigued. I had "tried" so many different things, bought equipment, bought programs, attended weight loss groups, bought shakes and meals, but I just couldn't stick to anything. Once again, I decided to try something new, a personal trainer, with hopes that maybe I'd have someone to be accountable to.

    So the search for the right PT began. I am a researcher! I knew that I wanted a female trainer who was National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) trained, with a great reputation and reviews. I scoured the town, checked out references and validated credentials of the best the Placerville area had to offer, and found only one who fit the criteria: Jessica Miller.

    I met with Jess in February for the first time, and right away loved her. I've had other trainers in the past, but none had ever been so knowledgable, sharing with me the how's and why's of the things we were doing. Jess bothered to get to know me, and spend a lot of time prompting me to *really* think about why I haven't been successful in my attempts to be healthy and fit before. She genuinely believed in me, and encouraged me in a way no one else had, and somehow managed to get me to start believing in myself too.

    And then I joined her small groups! Which provided me with an even larger support system. Working out for the first time with other people who were more fit was overwhelming, but they were so incredibly supportive from the first minutes of class.

    It's July now-and I'm down almost 20lbs, and have muscles I have never had! I have an amazing group of supportive friends I work out with 4 times a week at Action Potential. Even on the days I don't want to work out, I still show up because I would miss my girl time with my girlfriends. And I'm a better, healthier, stronger person for it.

    As for Jess - she's pretty much changed my life by showing me how to change it myself! She's is an amazing person and now one of my closest friends. What she has created at Action Potential is so much more than just "working out", or going to group fitness classes with strangers. The clients of Action Potential are pretty amazing too. I would, and do, highly recommend Jess and Action Potential to anyone who is looking to change their life for the better.

    Saying that Jessica is a great trainer does not do justice to how her training impacted my life. Jess trained and prepared me for the Los Angeles Police Department academy. When I started with Jess, I could not even do a push up or run a mile. Afterwards, I was able to do chin ups, never ending pushups, and run my first 5ks. I graduated the LAPD academy after 6 months of strenuous training and honestly know I would never have completed the physical tests without her help.

    Jess motivates me every day to push through the rough patches. Jessica changed my life with her training. She genuinely cares about every client. Jess modifies workouts for each person individually. She will evaluate all aspects of fitness including your diet, muscular endurance, and cardio ability. She adapts to each client.

    Through my training with Jess, she altered how I prioritize fitness in my life. I understand the significance of working out and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. No matter your age, size, gender, or fitness level, Jess is the perfect trainer for you! Jess will have you laughing through every workout and you will never regret a single session.

    First, if you are an older woman, or man, Jessica is the trainer for you. I have been working with Jessica for a while now and just love her. I am 67, wayy overweight with, 2 bad knees, 2 bad ankles that have been sprained alot, various pulled muscles, bad feet, etc etc, and have a tendency to do stuff i shouldn't which results in more injuries. Jess has been so great working with me and my problems, going slow so as not to injure me more and guiding me along my way to better physical and mental health. she willingly works with my physical therapist to insure that we are not compromising the PT work. I was afraid a trainer would make me run and jump like some lean strong kid, but no, she understands my limits, I NEVER ran! I really cannot say enough good things about her, she is just a great trainer and I feel her rates are very reasonable too, it is a great investment for better health.
