I heart You Norcal!

What I’m about to say is way over due, but better late than never, right? I want to just give a quick thanks and really, a virtual chest bump, high five, bear hug to everyone associated with this gym. Seriously, you all are amazing and I more than appreciate the warm welcome, encouragement and patience I have received from everyone here.
As if your exuberant little faces didn’t already paint a picture of what this gym is about, the NorCal family stands alone not only as a gym, but as a community. As I’m sure you have, I’ve worked in and/or been a part of many jobs, groups, gyms etc …..NOT ONE comes close to the feeling when you walk through our doors. The energy, the excitement, sometimes it hits you so hard, you wonder what the heck you were doing before (if it’s 6am, the justifiable answer would be “sleeping”.

Although I try, words cannot express my gratitude for the opportunity to be a part of such a place.

P.S. I will never be this sappy again :)

Jaime Jereb has always considered herself a bit of a "lifelete." Never fully focusing on a specific sport, but rather enjoyed the idea of being an active healthy human being for life. "Anything can happen, so you better be prepared!" Mid college, the lifelete found herself following a career path in the fire service. She attended Butte Fire Academy in 2004 where she got a taste of what functional fitness truly was. Being 5'2 and 120, she had to learn to maneuver and carry the equivalent of over half her body weight. After graduating and working in the emergency medical services for several years, she decided that trying to help people after they were sick, unhealthy and broken was not what she wanted to do. Jaime went back to school, attending CSU Chico where she studied Kinesiology in hopes of learning how to prevent some of what she experienced in EMS. In 2006, she packed up and headed to San Diego for a total change of pace and a new career. There she started her own group training business, specializing in fun, effective, functional fitness. Since Jaime has a passion for learning and a desire to bring her clients the best possible tools for success, she went back to school a third time, attending the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to become a holistic health counselor with a focus on Paleo / real food nutrition, bio individuality and Cross training. With a strong belief that 'less is more' Jaime is constantly preaching healthy wellness and real life living to her clients. HAVE FUN, SLEEP WELL, EAT GOOD, LIVE A LOT!! When she isn't in the gym walking on her hands, swinging from bars or sprinting down the street, you can usually find her skateboarding with her dog, grocery shopping (she loves it!), and laughing with friends.
