My name is Jasmine Pickett and I am the founder of Jazzy Fit where I specialize in the athletic and psychological development of young athletes. I founded Jazzy Fit in 2014 and my main focus was on general fitness for individuals of all ages. Over the years, it has transitioned into more sport specific training for athletes and the mental skills needed to be successful all around. While athletic and psychological development of young athletes is my main focus, I do still enjoy working with individual for general fitness and pushing them towards reaching their personal fitness goals.
I have been an athlete my entire life and have always had a passion for health and fitness and exploring the various avenues that allow our bodies and minds to perform at the highest level. Gymnastics and track and field are the sports that have shaped my athletic development and propelled me onto my path of Kinesiology and psychological health.
I competed at high levels in both gymnastics and track and field. I received a full ride scholarship to Cal Poly State University in San Luis Obispo, California where I competed on their D1 track and field team (triple jump, long jump, short sprints) and studied Kinesiology. I became a 2x All-American in the triple jump and continued training post-collegiate in hopes of making an Olympic team. Throughout my Olympic training, I tore both of my Achilles tendons, which changed the direction of my athletic career in a major way. While I never made an Olympic team, I had the opportunity to use my experience with high level sports and major injuries to mentor and encourage other athletes.
I decided to get my MS in Sports Psychology and became a certified strength and conditioning specialist in hopes of training athletes in their sport specific skill sets such as hand-eye-coordination, speed and agility, as well as developing the mental skills needed for them to be healthy and successful.
I know that Jazzy Fit will continue to evolve over the coming years and I look forward to continuing to help grow and inspire each person I have the opportunity to work with.
