Getting involved in training started with Jaime's athletic career as a Junior Olympic Volleyball Club player in 1998. She then received an athletic scholarship to play at Division I Marist College in New York, and it continued intensely. In her four years at Marist, she fell in love with and learned the base of her fitness skills through regular personal athletic, cardiovascular and plyometric training.
After becoming an American Council on Exercise (ACE) certified Personal Trainer and Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) Group Exercise Instructor, Jaime worked at Philadelphia Sports Club. While there, she designed personalized fitness programs specializing in weight loss, strength training, cardiovascular improvement, sports conditioning, agility, plyometric training and more.
