Jesse Feder ACSM-CPT, CSCS

American College of Sports Medicine-Certified Personal Trainer
National Strength and Conditioning Association-Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist

Jesse Feder is a graduate from the University of Florida with a Bachelors of Science degree in Applied Physiology and Kinesiology with a specialty in Exercises Physiology. He is a certified personal trainer by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM-CPT) and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA-CSCS). He is currently pursuing his Masters Degree in Dietetics and Nutrition at Florida International University to become a Licensed and Registered Dietitian (LDN/RDN) and an undergraduate adjunct lecturer.

Jesse’s interest in personal training and health and wellness stemmed from his need for a safe space to relieve stress as a child growing up in a challenging environment. As he focused more on his training routine, he began to realize the benefits of exercise on one’s mental state, mood, health, and overall quality of life. He wanted to translate the positive feelings he received from exercising to others by educating them on how to create a sustainable training program and a healthy eating habit to improve the long-term quality of their lives. As a part of his passion for health and wellness, Jesse is a firm believer and advocate for preventive medicine. He believes that wellness and preventive care should be as equally important as the many subfields of medicine in order to maintain a long-term, active and healthy lifestyle.

Aside from his educational and professional achievements, Jesse has competed in 2 spartan races, played varsity tennis and basketball for 4 years. He also competed in the crossfit open for 4 years during his undergrad from which he narrowed his focus to compete in Olympic lifting. In his junior year of college, he successfully qualified for the university nationals in Olympic lifting. He eventually took a break from lifting and got into swimming and hit a personal goal of swimming a mile. Today, he likes to crosstrain and incorporate a large variety of resistance and endurance training into his weekly routine. During his downtime, he loves spending time outdoors with his dog, Henry, or at the beach with family.

  • Kelsey was very professional and taught me so many different exercises. My body felt much better and more relaxed after my session with her. She was extremely personable and knowledgeable as well. -Adam Trieser

  • "My sessions with Kelsey were crucial in my recovery from hand surgery. I had a tendon repaired and the recovery is painful, yet Kelsey made the experience much more tolerable. She is extremely professional and analytical with her patients, at the same time she is very caring and supportive. I have regained full mobility in my hand and it is in big part thanks to Kelsey”.Best, Cindy

  • I retained Kelsey to help me rehab my shoulder after a 2015 surgery. My experience was fabulous! She was the most attentive and knowledgeable therapist I have ever worked with. Her compassion and personalized treatment is unmatched in my experience (and I have had numerous surgeries) and she helped me achieve results far ahead of the timetable set by my surgeon. You need to see Kelsey! The best! -Chet D.
