Jess here :) I just wanted to take the time to thank so many of you for your support and encouragement over the last couple weeks as I set out on this new and exciting path as a BodyRock host. There is so much that I still have to learn and I ask for your patience while I get comfortable in front of the camera :) My time in Kingston with Freddy and Sean has been awesome, as I am sure many have gathered from some of the photos and posts we have shared on Facebook. They have made me feel right at home and have taken the time to show me around. Kingston is beautiful! I also spoke with Zuz this past weekend who continues to inspire me on a daily basis. She was really sweet and encouraged me to just relax and be myself. I really appreciated our conversation :)
Zuz and Freddy are obviously the driving force of BodyRock and not matter who hosts the workouts, nothing is going to change that. I am so thankful to both of them for providing me with this incredible opportunity.
With that said, I am so excited to take my fitness to the next level and push harder than ever before. As a fellow BodyRocker, I too am trying to be the best me I can be. This journey has been incredible and I am so proud to look back and see how I have grown. There is so much I still want to accomplish… and this is just the beginning. I also recently created an Athletes page on Facebook through which I hope to interact with you guys on a regular basis and act somewhat as a forum for discussion and inspiration. If you’re interested, you can Like my page here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jessica-Lynn-BodyRockTv-Host/289911214366574. Feel free to say hi, ask questions and share your stories.
I look forward to training with you this week!

Have fun with this workout and do a Burpee for Erin – she wrote me today that she is at the hospital but everything is going well. She’s always in a good mood which I totally admire her for. This is what she wrote:
Hey! Just wanted to forward you this photo of me getting ready to start my stem cell collection! It will take 5 hours each day and maybe 2-3 days to get the amount I need. First step though!
Radiation therapy to my chest all next week and getting admitted into hospital on the 18th. Chemo on the 19th and 20th. Full body radiation 21st-23rd. The night of the 23rd I get my stem cells back and then I just stay in the hospital until my numbers go up (2-4 weeks).
Long road ahead, but at least there is a direction! Wish me luck!
Let’s dedicate this workout to her.
