Now, I’m approx 15%-16% BF and hovering around the same, give or take so approx 118-125lb. Depends on how much buffet I eat haha. I RARELY drink. I don’t even want to. I don’t have a sweet tooth but I do eat dessert sometimes and enjoy it to the max. I eat plenty of complex carbs such as whole grains, breads, rice, and sweet potatoes. Pho and pizza make their way on my plate occasionally.
Although my weight is back to where it was and sometimes more, I feel lighter, I look tighter and leaner, and my clothes and measurements are much better than pre-competition. I think the biggest difference is the absence of alcohol.
Logging my food and setting new goals for myself really helped me get healthy again. am happier and less stressed. I love learning and experimenting with what works with my body and embrace every step of this journey. – Jessie Lam
Words cannot begin to describe what Jessie and her husband (Joe “the healer”) have done for me in such a short time. It was a tough start, I wanted to give up many times and be as complacent as I had been in the past, but Jessie refused to allow it. (I still feel like she attached some sort of device to me, that would tap into when I didn’t feel like working out, or when I was about to eat something horrible) because a text message would always come through, just at the right time, reminding me of the power I still had and encouraging me to do better for myself.
3 months later, I am in control again. My pain/injury list is now almost non-existent. I am down 22 lbs.!!!, and still going strong. I can see muscle definition without even flexing!!!, I am doing exercises I never thought I would be able to do again, I am able to do yoga, and most importantly I feel like me again! I have the peace and comfort of knowing that my brother is smiling because he knows I am taking care of “me”. Jessie, I can’t thank you enough for your support, expertise, and professionalism. Even though I threaten to lock you up somewhere far, far, away at least 50 times a week, I know I wouldn’t have seen these results without you! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!” – Trish Curling (A.k.a. Drake Shake your first celebrity client)
“I was introduced to Jessie through my amazing friend Trish. I saw how fabulous Trish was looking and feeling and Trish really encouraged me to have a consultation with Jessie! I was having breathing problems at that time and I really wanted to do something about it. The moment I met Jessie, I fell in love with her! She was just so motivating and I knew we would be a great team! After eight months, I can totally say that I’m addicted to training with her!
After the first session, I couldn’t go up the stairs for three days…but I couldn’t wait to go back to her for the next session! I feel so much healthier, breathing much easier, feeling good about myself and finally….I can say that I actually like yoga! The first day I told Jessie that I hated Yoga and she gave me the death stare! And you all know that look!!!
Jessie…thank you so much for pushing me to a level that I thought was not in me. Thank you for listening to me and always giving me the strength to move forward during the difficult months this year! Yes..there are days when I wanted to punch you when you said, “two more times!” And yes the basement is the “torture chamber.” But I’ve gained so much from this experience and I am looking forward to the months ahead with you! I feel great! I’m so much happier! Thank you for helping me to ….JUST BREATHE….and enjoy the present moment! xoxo” – M.B.

“Getting fit and healthy has been fun and easy to achieve with Jessie by my side. Throughout this process her support has been unwavering no matter how many times I’ve made decisions that have compromised my goals or have given up on myself. She is always just a phone call or text away. She is open, non-judgemental, easy to talk to and very honest. She has helped me create healthy solutions that fit my lifestyle and are easy to implement into my daily activities. She has been a fountain of knowledge not just about what to do in the gym but what to do outside as well. In addition to the disappearing pounds and inches my flexibility has increased and I can now do full push-ups. I found that Jessie’s approach builds you from the ground up giving you the foundation you need feel confident in yourself and your journey. She pushes you past the limits you put on yourself. Her passion for holistic health is contagious and makes her one of the best practitioners I have ever encountered. I look forward to continuing my journey and achieving many more successes with Jessie by my side.” – Natricia Drummond
“One of my biggest passions is body building, I love lifting weights and hitting new PRs. I knew when I started lifting heavy weights, mobility , range and fast recovery are one of the most important staples in avoiding injury and building strength. I realize I want to make sure I am still doing what I love and passionate about until I am very old. Since incorporating regular yoga sessions with Jessie, I’ve notice a significant improvement in my lifts. I continue to hit new PRs, my squats are deeper with a bigger emphasis on control and motion, and my recovery time has significantly decreased. My shoulder range has improved and I can press overhead with more ease and load. Jessie has helped combined breathing techniques that has been incorporated into my training for more smoother lifts. I am proud to say I can take a dump squatting comfortably if there are no toilets around.” – Benson Hong
“Through consistent positive feedback and encouragement, Jessie Lam has helped me to accomplish things I did not think possible. I had always been overweight but her training and experience and support helped to push my personal limits and make me a fitter person. Jessie encouraged me to take personal responsibility for my eating habits and exercise routines, and thus made great progress in losing weight and maintaining the weight loss as well as developing my fitness level. Through her efforts as a personal trainer I established a foundation of fitness which I continue to maintain and develop now.” – Helen Pierre
Fitness has always been a very important part in my life, as I have always worked really hard to be what society considers “normal’ weight. I have had male trainers in the past who helped me to try and achieve my goal. Through time, I got stronger, but I also felt like I got thicker, bigger, and “Hulkier”.
“Jessie helped me get my health back on track when my doctor told me some sad news from my annual check up. 1 Year later, a visit to the doctor told a different story. She educated me about what I need to change in my diet and how to go about it. It wasn’t just about the training sessions with her but she was teaching me and giving me the tools that I needed to sustain my ongoing progress. I was able to fit into dress pants from high school. By building my core strength, the back pain I had was gone. Working out had strengthened my arms and I regained my grip strength.The wisdom Jessie was teaching me was not just shaping my body physique but my overall health was improving. Mentally, I feel better about myself, strong and confident.” – Jamson Cheng
“So we (my husband and I) signed up with Mike Liu and his team mate Jessie Lam for some on-line training. This is 5 weeks in, I’m really happy to see some leg muscle… I struggle with legs and glutes! I have completed every workout but have had some hiccups and cheats on the diet. Thank you Mike and Jess! We are so happy to be working with you! You didn’t try to sell us shakes, wraps or other crazy products… Just tons of support, a great diet plan with a fantastic shopping list and real workouts at the gym! Every question you’ve answered quickly! You are great communicators you even made videos for us, took our middle aged health concerns seriously and suggested great supplements, vitamins etc. Best personalized program ever from the best coaches!
