Weight Neutral Movement & Body Positive Fitness
Certified Personal Trainer & Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor
I'm so glad you're here.
I’m Jess Brock-Pitts, founder and owner of Enlighten Well LLC, and a gym class drop-out turned certified personal trainer & group fitness instructor. I took a non-traditional route to becoming a personal trainer. After working for years in the field of mental health as a clinical social worker, I decided to make a pivot into fitness.
Jess is, in a word, refreshing. I had been toying with the idea of getting a personal trainer to help with my seemingly chronic pain for a few months but questioned my motivations. Are my intentions pure? Will the years of societal messaging of “lose weight” and “get a six-pack in six days” consume me? Will I relapse? I know...I know...I think too much. But it’s a valid concern! By this point, this journey of mine had taken me through a body image resilience course, an intuitive eating course, and now the real test. Can I truly move or “exercise” to simply care for my overall well-being? Needless to say, I decided to take the leap. Now to find a trainer who understands where I’m coming from...I ventured into the realm of personal trainers in hopes I’d find one who would respect where I was in my journey. Long story short, I found a trainer who ended up recommending Jess at Enlighten Well to me. I cannot thank this trainer enough. Jess is authentic. She is relatable. And she is kind. In a world filled with trainers who are trying to convince you that you could look “better,” or “no pain no gain” or share tips on how to “lose weight quickly” before a weigh-in. Jess is the opposite of what I thought I’d find when searching for a trainer so needless to say, once I met Jess I breathed a sigh of relief. How refreshing to find a trainer who deeply understands the importance of honoring our inner body and its need for movement without focusing on the external side effects of doing so. Enlighten Well is truly a hidden gem and how grateful am I that I get to work with Jess!
