MBA, BS. Exercise Science
Jackie Errico has been in the fitness industry for over 13 years. She has her Bachelor’s in Exercise Science and her Master’s in Business Administration. Jackie is a nationally certified strength and conditioning coach, a certified personal trainer, and co-owner of Just Lift Fitness.
Jackie started her career training Division I NCAA athletes. After years in the training world, she started her own business, focusing on people who want to make a lifestyle change. This has included a variety of people, including high performing CEOs, adults training for races or triathlons, and the parents who want to be at peak performance for their careers and family.
If you know your WHY, we can create a focused path to a healthy lifestyle. Jackie is here to help you navigate the journey to an even better you.
“Confession: I like to make people feel uncomfortable.
Making people uncomfortable provides them an opportunity to show growth and to outperform their personal best! I’ve seen it in the NCAA athletes I’ve coached, in the high-performing CEOs, and in the Mom or Dad who wants to be at peak performance for their family and careers.
I love to focus on your WHY. It is the most important question for you to answer. Here’s the thing – if you know your WHY, we can create a focused path to a healthy lifestyle. I’m here to help you navigate the journey and obstacles thrown at you. Obstacles give us the opportunity to show what we’re made of. In 2020, I started a business right before the pandemic and then married my wife a few months later. It was a roller coaster year, to say the least, but I came out of it stronger than ever. So, let’s show off those biceps; tone up that mindset; and, reimagine your future over a kale smoothie (honestly, I have an amazing recipe for you)!
Thank you so much for being here!”

Running a couple miles on the treadmill sounds like about the least appealing way to workout to me. That only means I come up with far more creative ways to get my heart rate up, and I’ll do it for you too. Do you want to feel strong and empowered? Perfect! Let’s lift some heavy weights together!

NASM Certified Personal Trainer
AIM Certified AA Liberal Arts
Rachel Dangler has been in the fitness industry since 2016. She started training and taught Boot Camp and HIIT classes since 2019. She has her A.A. degree in Liberal Arts and is a Certified Personal Trainer. Growing up she played sports including ice hockey, volleyball, softball and basketball.
Currently she is pursuing a certification in Corrective Exercises with NASM and strives to learn more each day to be the best at her craft.
Spending a good part of my early life sitting, in 2014 I experienced a back injury. I thought I was healthy, but was not strength training or matching my nutrition with my goals. I changed my daily habits and lifestyle, which included eating MORE and doing LESS cardio and more weights! I’ve been pain free for 8 years and am stronger now than I’ve ever been!
I love seeing fitness become a part of people’s lives because it not only helps them keep their results, but truly changes them from the inside out. It’s an incredible transformation; people not only become healthier and stronger, but also more confident and the best version of themselves!
Fun fact: I love taking challenging moments in life and turning them into a positive! I used to hate core work, it was my weakest exercise. After a mentor in my life challenged me to work on the weakest part of my workouts, core has now become my strength!
