Jessica Botte

Jessica Botte has a unique perspective on the fitness industry. In the last 10 years she has transformed from an overweight desk jockey to a top ranked fitness professional and entrepreneur. In 2011 she quit her corporate job in construction management to pursue a career in fitness as a NASM certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor. After a year of independent training, she began working at an Equinox on Manhattan's Upper East Side. She quickly became one of the most sought after trainers at the club and a mentor to her colleges. Her professionalism and past experiences made Jess a great candidate for her current role as Fitness Manager. Jessica has been "training trainers" in that position since 2015. Most recently, Jess has branched out into public speaking and developed her own Corporate Wellness Program, JBeWell. Her goal is to use all these channels to help as many people as possible create lasting change in their lives. Jessica received her BS in Applied Mathematics and Statistics from Stony Brook University, holds a Behavior Change Specialist certification from NASM and is Precision Nutrition Level 1 Graduate.
