JESSICA RENEE ZAMER
Owner + Pilates, Conditioning & MAT
After undergoing open-heart surgery in 2003, I quickly learned the importance of body conditioning. Discovering Pilates and learning how to breathe and move properly became life-changing! After incorporating Pilates principles to my training I began to notice a huge difference in my performance. Beginning with Classical Pilates I quickly found myself wanting more and mixed Pilates with my strength training. I have been STOTT Pilates certified in Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, and Barrels for over 10 years, TRX Certified, and a Muscle Activation Techniques practitioner. My goal for Trek House is to provide individualized care to the Houston community.
In my twenties I started practicing yoga because my body was always in pain. I was fit and always exercising but something was missing. Seven years ago I started my first Vinyasana training in Houston. This is Yoga for fitness, it focuses on building muscle and losing weight. The same year I decided to travel to India to study hatha and meditation to focus on mindfulness, relaxation, stress relief, and techniques to combat anxiety and externalized feelings.
Growing up in Hawai’i I spent most of my time outdoors; hiking, swimming, surfing, biking, you name it. These activities bought me happiness but over time I realized how “hard” I had been on my body. This realization brought me to Pilates. It became a way to heal, restore and increase my strength without risking injury. Pilates is not only exercise and physical therapy but also a mental therapy, aligning body, mind, and spirit. When I moved to Houston, I decided to explore my passion further by enrolling in the STOTT Pilates mat and reformer certification. My goal as a teacher is to create an environment that focuses on connecting mind and body through the power of breath, body awareness and strength in a welcoming community.
I found Pilates and fell in love with the way it made my body feel strong, yet supple and also helped me cope with the various injuries I had acquired over the years. I am an avid equestrian competing in Dressage. Riding horses requires an enormous amount of core strength to balance and stay on the horse! I am STOTT reformer certified and have noticed the strength, mobility and balance established through pilates has helped me to improve my riding. My favorite quote by Moshe Feldenkreis does a beautiful job of describing pilates, "The
impossible becomes possible. The possible becomes easy and the easy becomes elegant."
Pilates & Conditioning
After I discovered Pilates seven years ago while living in Norwalk, CT my perspective on fitness and how proper form, control, and commitment can maximize strength totally changed. There are many benefits to staying fit with Pilates; it’s fun, the community is strong, and staying connected to mind, body, and soul. My goal is to help both men and women recognize this and remember that age is just a number. I believe that making time for yourself is one of the most important things a person can do. I want to support you in achieving your fitness goals and guiding you on your own trek. I will be here for you every step of the way!
I am currently a student at The University of Houston studying Graphic Design and Advertisement. As a child I have always gravitated towards liberal arts and knew I would pursue it as a career. I really enjoyed creating art traditionally on paper and now digitally as well! Art has always been an outlet of relaxation and meditation for me and being in the studio has inspired me to try a new method of focus and Pilates has helped me look at working out in a new perspective.
My love for Pilates started when I was looking for a way to stay active without feeling like I was burning out all of my energy. Within a week of doing Pilates, it taught me that it’s more than just movements - it kept me consistent, grounded and always progressing after each session. Something that started as a way to stay active became a strong passion after I got surgery to remove multiple Fibroids. My recovery time was quicker than average because of how I built my core and mental strength through Pilates. Pilates has continuously helped me not just physically, but mentally and spiritually as well. My goal as an instructor is to support, guide and empower you through your fitness journey in all ways.
I developed my passion for movement at a young age with dance. I attended HSPVA in Houston and then danced professionally with AdDeum Dance Company before pursuing my education at Texas A&M University. While I was at Texas A&M I raced on the triathlon team and taught Barre Pilates and dance. I graduated with a B.S. in Sports Conditioning with minors in Public Health and Coaching. I'm currently in school to be a Physical Therapy Assistant and continue to teach dance. I'm also currently going through my STOTT Pilates mat and reformer certification. I'm a high energy instructor and love to share my passion for fitness with my clients while helping them achieve their fitness goals.
I'm a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA). A born and raised Houstonian, I received my degree from UH in something completely unrelated to fitness (ask me about it). However, I believe fitness and training are all about increasing your personal power. An increase in physical performance is a direct increase in your power as a human being. My favorite power increasing activities are powerlifting and rock climbing. Focus on improving performance, increasing your power, and the abs will come, quick!
