April 2024 MOTM Jessica Smith

Pearce would like to recognize Jessica Smith as our April Member of the Month!

Jessica is a stay-at-home mom to 4 busy, active girls ranging from 4 years old to 11 years old. Since joining Pearce in 2021 at the encouragement of a friend, some of Jessica’s favorite classes have been Triathlon Training and Weightlifting for Beginners. She has participated in the Indoor Triathlon and has also enjoyed the Run for the Health of It 5K.

She loves having such a great resource as Pearce in a small community. Pearce offers so many programs and events for all age levels. Her girls love all the sports options that Pearce offers. They have taken swimming lessons and participated in swim club, volleyball, soccer, Kids Fit Games, Big Fun Gym, and more! They love all the extra specialty events too – youth dances, kids cooking, Spooktacular and have hosted several birthday parties here at Pearce.

Jessica says that the older she gets, the more she realizes how much more important it is to stay healthy and active. She wants to be able to set a good example for her sports-loving girls and prove that Mom can keep up with them.

In her downtime, she enjoys volunteering at her kids’ schools and cheering them on at all their sporting events – basketball, volleyball, track and 3 in travel softball keeps them busy! When she’s not cheering on her girls, you can find her jogging the Rock Island Trail or biking the country roads – she has a goal to complete her first Sprint Triathlon this summer.

A favorite inspirational quote is “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” ~Aesop

The advice Jessica would give other members would be, “If you’ve joined Pearce seeking to improve your health & fitness, be sure to check out their Specialty Fitness classes. I have really enjoyed the few I’ve done and learned a lot in the process!”

Thank you, Jessica, for choosing to be a Pearce member!
