This class is taught by:

Chase Irons

Chase Irons was born and raised in Columbia, SC and has always been involved in fitness, as she began playing sports at the age of 6.
 
She played basketball and volleyball competively in high school and started running in college while attending The University of South Carolina. She has run The Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco, and eight half marathons locally since 2008. She believes in maintaining a healthy lifestyle through physical fitness and a healthy diet.
 
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Ben, and their three rescue dogs, going to the beach, and spending time with family and friends.

Renee Holler

Renee Holler began her fitness career with The Firm in 1994. While at The Firm she participated in several of the videos, was featured in the book “Firm for Life”, and earned her personal training certification from the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America. She has also earned her certification as a spin instructor through Cycle Reebok and continues to maintain her certification for Adult CPR. She earned a B.A. degree from Wofford College where she was a double major in Economics and Religion. Married for 27 years with three children, she not only teaches for Jamie Scott Fitness, she also works at the Holler Law Firm. Her plans for the future are to pursue not only her nutrition certification but also a ropes certification. So much of how we feel and look is not only due to exercising on a regular basis, but a result of the food and drink we put into our bodies. Educating myself about nutrition and new innovative approaches to health and fitness will hopefully accomplish what our mission statement here at JSF is…to not only encourage but empower our clients to achieve a lifetime of wellness.

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!!

Kate Nunn

Kate is a current senior at the University of South Carolina where she is seeking to finish her bachelor’s degree in Public Health, and wants to continue her career in promoting health and wellness.

She is a certified personal trainer through Action’s NCCA Accredited program. 

Kate’s favorite motivational quote is, “It’s a slow process, but quitting won’t speed it up.” Whether it is one more rep, one more circuit, or one more work out, Kate will always push you to be the best you can be.

Katie's desire to help and inspire others to feel strong and healthy is what led her to pursue personal training and teaching classes at JSF.
