Meet Jess

Welcome! If you’re here, then you are already on a health and wellness path. Congratulations on living your life well!

I’m Jess Cherry, The Fit Petite, and I’m so excited to have you click through. My hope while you are here is for you to find some workouts you enjoy or wellness inspo to encourage you to do more!

A little about me…

I enjoy cooking simple food, crafting homemade cocktails, and adventuring with my husband. Our daily home routine is designed to accommodate and inspire our fit life. I’m a self proclaimed advocate for sustainable wellness.

You won’t find much on fad diets or workout trends here. You will be exposed to best practices for living a fit lifestyle, recipes and foods for healing, and product recommendations to make life easier and cleaner long term.

The goal will be to determine a comprehensive program that will work with your unique set of health and lifestyle circumstances. That’s how sustainable wellness is reached.

You’ll also gain insight into how Christianity belongs in your health game and discover how you too can become #CrossTrained.

2011, A Blog Is Born

I’ve been an avid runner and (self-proclaimed) fitness fanatic my entire life. My blogging journey began in 2011 when I was training for yet another half marathon. At the time, my current romantic relationship was ending, my condo was falling apart, and then there was a health scare that shook my family and I to the core. I knew I needed to find grounding again through steady training. Working towards the 13.1-mile distance of a half marathon gave me that element of security and accountability I so craved.

I decided to keep a record of my progress through journaling. As much as I love paper & pen, the writing got tedious. This lead to the creation of my own blog + website and a subsequent love for all things social media.

The Rise of TFP

Before long, posts were being shared, online conversations were being had, traffic steadily grew and an audience was soon born! I created the blog while working as a marketing executive in corporate America. I decided to leverage my marketing knowledge along with my passion for living a fit lifestyle to pursue the entrepreneur life.

TFP Entrepreneurial Front

The entrepreneurship lifestyle is not one I ever foresaw myself being a part of, but it just fits. You could call me a gypsy spirit of sorts — creating my own place in the world, merging both fitness and business realms.

In 2014 I acquired both my American Council of Exercise and Road Runner Club of America certifications. Mixing my passion for marketing and fitness has made for quite the fulfilling life that allows me to rest easy at night.

READ: This is not The Fast Petite, The Ripped Petite, or even The Skinny Petite. This is a space for everyday people looking to live their own version of a sweat-filled, soulful life – daily.  There is more than one way to live healthy and more than one place to practice physical activity! 

My drive for a healthy and fit life truly comes from an innate passion. I participate in regular practices of meditation, yoga, and running – as the mix of it all leaves me feeling in good balance. Beyond just my personal fitness, I thrive on seeing friends, clients, and readers, just like you, make the healthy lifestyle changes that put you in the direction of feeling well and living a more fulfilling life.

Health and fitness goals can be personal and should be treated thoughtfully and individually. That’s why I’ve made it my mission to build an online platform for people in every stage of their journey. Here at TFP, you can be sure to gain some positive vibes to put a little pep in your step.
