My name is Jessica Downing and I am the new owner of Vital Fit Club.
I have been a part of the fitness industry for over 19 years. I started my journey at SCSU where I majored in Community Health. My first summer back to Alex I had the privilege to work at Racquetball Plus. Lots of fond memories were made as well as the beginning of my lifelong obsession with health and fitness.
I have held various positions in the health and fitness world including manager of sales and personal training. For the last 13 years I have worked as a Master Level Trainer at Lifetime Fitness. I am currently certified with NASM, ACTION, and Baby-fit (Pre and Post Natal), and also certified in ACE group fitness and Pilate’s. I hold many Lifetime branded certifications in cycle, TCX and aqua aerobics as well as instructed at Gold’s Gym, Midtown Fitness and Lady Wellness.
I have been married to my wonderful and supportive husband Adam for 10 years. He is currently employed at Juettner Mortors where my parents, Mark and Kris Juettner have owned for the past 42 years. My husband and I keep busy as parents to our 6 year old daughter Ella and our 5 year old triplets, Sofia, Mia, and Aiden. Family life alone keeps us on our toes but we are more than thrilled to be closer to our amazing family.
Heather and Jon have created a gem of a community at Vital and I hope to continue this legacy by adding more variety and value to your life. Vital is very well known for its incredible staff and class offerings. We will continue to offer the same great prices and services but will also keep the group fitness schedule growing.
The talented Nikki Sieve has recently been promoted to Vital Fit Club’s front desk manager as well as the director of the newly added Vital Fit Kids program that will launch in August. We will also welcome Shanon Berns to the Vital family as a well known yoga guru and business coach. You will see her subbing as well as offering private and small group yoga sessions.
Racquetball will remain a huge focus at Vital with leagues starting late fall. We recently updated the air conditioning unit so all should be comfortable moving into the last month of summer.
From now and through the month of August we will be offering free demos on the new equipment as well as demos of the new class formats. Space will be limited so call the front desk to reserve a spot. If you have been on break from indoor workouts you may want to stop in and check out phase one of the Vital Fit Club updates.
Please visit Vital’s newly update website to see what’s new and upcoming! I have also attached info to the new happenings here at Vital so please check those out as well.
I am so thrilled to be back in this fabulous community! I have met many of you and eager to meet others.
