Jalyssa’s fitness journey began in dance class at a very young age. Dancing eventually led her to competitive cheer-leading throughout high school. While obtaining her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary and Special Education from West Chester University, Jalyssa found the world of group fitness as a way to stay active, healthy, and manage stress. After college, Jalyssa began pursuing her first fitness certification in Kickboxing through The Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA), while also earning her Masters of Arts in Education degree in Reading Specialist from LaSalle University. Jalyssa later became a Certified Spinning Instructor through MADD Dog Athletics and a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). Part of Jalyssa’s fitness journey has included being a client of the RippedPHL team since 2017. She attributes much of her passion and progress in fitness to the RippedPHL team and is excited to be a part of the RippedPHL family in a new way!
