Nicki Wilson

Nicki played sports for fun growing up and always loved to be active. After college, she discovered that Pilates was a great complement to her cardio routines. After the birth of her first child, she decided to pursue her goal to become a fitness instructor and was certified in Pilates. She has been teaching Pilates, Core and Barre classes for the past 6 years.

Nicki believes proper form and balance are the keys to fitness. She emphasizes mixing it up with your workouts and to have a mind-body connection during exercise.

As for what to expect in her classes? She says be prepared to feel the burn in your core (and everywhere else)!

Annie Scott

Annie got into exercise in college when she started doing a boot camp with Rob DeBoer. She worked out with him for a couple of years. When she graduated college, she joined Jamie Scott Fitness and fell in love with the classes. She wanted to start teaching because during her boot camp days, she learned that she could put a class together, in the rare event the instructor was not able to make it. Annie started teaching at JSF in 2011 and has had so much fun thus far! She lives in Columbia and is a Treasury Management Officer at NBSC.

Aimee Melling

After struggling with weight throughout childhood, Amy decided to get serious about her health when she started college. During her journey she developed a desire to share her knowledge about health and wellness with others. Amy is a group fitness instructor, certified personal trainer (AFAA), certified Reebok Cycle, and certified TRX instructor. She enjoys teaching proper movement and body awareness to clients. Amy says she is pleased every time she sees a client reach and exceed his or her goals.

Amy is currently a professional graduate student earning a doctorate of pharmacy at the University of South Carolina’s College of Pharmacy. While she spends much of her time learning about medicinal therapies for sickness and disease states, she knows that exercise is the best drug to keep your mind and body healthy.

Elizabeth Graham

As a dancer for most of her life and high school athlete, Elizabeth has always enjoyed being active and working hard to reach her goals. She is now a student at the University of South Carolina and has earned her Personal Trainer Certification through ACE (American Counsel of Exercise).
 
Elizabeth's passion for health and fitness has driven her to pursue a career as a trainer and motivator. She wants to use that passion to help others challenge themselves and reach their goals. She felt that JSF was a place with that same goal in mind: to show people how strong they are and can be with a little perspiration and a lot of perseverance.
 
Her advice to clients? Work hard and never give up. Wake up everyday and do something you didn't know you could do. Accept the challenge in front of you and turn it into a victory. Do this until it becomes a habit, and you'll fall in love with the lifestyle!!
Burn through belly fat and strengthen core muscles through an intense and effective core focused workout.
