Why Train Your Core?
Having a strong core is beneficial to everyone. Your core muscles are the centre of your body and they literally are the support base for it. They completely surround and support your spine and pelvis and connect your upper body and lower body. This connection allows the transfer of forces from one part of your body to the other while you are performing exercises and day-to-day activities.
Why Cardiovascular Train?
Cardiovascular training or aerobic training strengthens your heart and helps it pump more effectively. Regular cardiovascular training helps to lower your blood pressure, raises “good” cholesterol and lowers “bad” cholesterol, helps regulate sugar levels, reduces chronic pain, and so much more!
Jesse Benjamin is Mi’kmaq, a Certified Personal Trainer, and a small animal Veterinarian.
Her love for sports started in elementary school and carried on throughout her entire schooling, even into University where she competed on the track-and-field and the cross country teams. However, as she started her career and family, she stopped exercising for about 7 years. It was during this time she lost part of herself. It took a major life change to realize she was no longer prioritizing herself, or her health. After her fourth child, she decided to start working out again.
It was after being told by a friend how she had inspired her to start making healthy life choices, that she considered becoming a personal trainer. She obtained her certification in October 2017 and now helps busy people incorporate fitness and good nutrition into their lives through online training so they can feel strong, be healthy and live well.
She currently resides in Halifax, NS, with her 4 children, 2 dogs and 3 cats. She can be found at @jesse_benjamin_on Instagram where she shares daily workouts, motivation, and practical advice on living a healthy lifestyle. Jesse can also be found at www.twoeyedwellness.com
