Our Philosophy

   Reaching your goals is a team effort. A fitness journey is made up of three factors: 

1/3 of it is the training itself. 1/3 of it is your determination and consistency in following the exercise program in which we have created outside of training. The final 1/3 is your discipline with nutrition. It takes all three parts to make up the whole, which is why we are essentially a team working towards building a better you.

Jessica Tan- Owner, NASM CPT, CES


I used to weigh 200 lbs and was extremely unhealthy. I was on a myriad of medications for fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, gastroparesis, interstitial cytitis, and had terrible asthma. I decided to start my fitness journey when I saw an advertisement for Spartan Race. First, I tried to do it on my own- trail running and hiking daily to lose weight. By the time my first race came around, I was not ready. I did finish; however, it was the hardest thing I had done in my life. 

I decided to start seeing a personal trainer to hopefully prepare me for my next race and get faster results. My trainer literally changed my life. The weight started shedding, and I became stronger, faster, and healthier! i was able to stop all of medications, and no longer suffered from constant flare ups. Since then I have run all three distances of Spartan Races and completed my trifecta in 2014. I have also ran three half marathons and competed in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments, and placed bronze once. After initially experiencing the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, I decided to leave the Veterinary field and become a fitness professional to help others experience what I did. I got my certification through National Academy of Sports Medicine. I created Ace Performance Training and chose Pasadena Strength and Conditioning as the initial facility I would train out of due to the fact it is so vast and has an amazing selection of equipment for all levels of fitness. After about three years, I added my Corrective Exercise Specialist Certification through NASM and moved facilities to Matador Performance Center in August 2016 due to crowding at PSC. I always make it a point to do what is best for my clients- and continuing to educate myself and make sure my clients are happy with the facility in which we work out of is the best way to do so. Recently I have shifted my clientele to online and in- home wellness/fitness coaching. I have turned my garage into a gym in Big Bear City, CA to see in person clientele. I became a mother and I feel that I can best assist my clients remotely than at a paid facility. My goal is to educate my clients so they can feel confident to go to the gym, know what to work on, how to use the equipment, and how to determine whether the proper muscles are being worked.

 My hobbies include reading scripture daily, spending time with my children, Brazilian Jiu- Jitsu, hiking, shooting firearms, lifting, cooking, gardening, painting, running Spartan Races, playing mini golf, bowling, playing basketball/soccer/volleyball, fishing, trying new cuisines, and kayaking/ SUP.
