Dana Stout

Dana Stout

My name is Dana Stout and I'm from Hagerstown, MD. Growing up I had always been active in sports and was exposed to lifting because of my dad.  Although I was active and wasn't heavy, I still fought with a negative body image.  I would look at competitors or fitness models and wanted to be just like them.  During my last year of college, I weighed 158lbs the heaviest I have ever been.  I tried everything from detoxes to an online trainer.  Although, some of it helped, none of it gave me the long term results I desired.  I had played with the idea of competing for a couple of years, but never took that first step to achieving that goal.  After graduating, I had a lot of free time to focus on myself and my fitness goal.  I was referred to Jess by multiple people and I regret not going to her for help sooner.  Within 6 weeks, I have lost 10 lbs and 2.5 inches around my waist.  My goal is to be competing by summer and I'm more than confident Jess will help me get to where I want to be by that time. 

Jamar Lester

My name is Jamar “Debo” Lester.   I’m 37 years old and live in Martinsburg, WV.  I work for the Children Home Society of WV.  My passion for bodybuilding began as a child when I saw Flex Wheeler on the cover of various magazines.  At 6 years old I used to stand in front of the mirror flexing and posing.  All through high school I busted my butt in the gym with hopes to get on stage one day.  I entered the Navy in 1998 and in 2002 I made my first combat deployment.  Shortly thereafter I was diagnosed with PTSD.  As a result, I left the Navy, got a divorce and was basically a homeless drunk.  When I moved here in 2007 I went to the VA center for treatment.  During that time I would sneak away from the hospital, go to the gym and workout.  In 2009 I remember walking past Jessica and was amazed of her physique and her dedication to this lifestyle.  I knew right then I wanted her to train me but I also wanted to see how far I can go without a trainer.  When Jessica turned pro I was very happy for her as I would watch her videos as a personal motivation tool.  In 2014 I weighed 330lbs which is when I asked her if it would be possible for me to compete.  Her response was "Anything is Possible."  Eight months later, with hard work and determination I lost 110lbs.  Fast forward to Jan 2016, I already got myself as far I could, saved up enough funds and contacted Jessica to become my personal trainer.  She listened to my concerns, health issues and the fact I wanted to compete.  Jessica built me a plan and introduced me to Human Evolution Supplements.  As a result I went down one shirt size and one pant size within a few weeks.  At least once a week Jessica follows up with me and will make adjustment to my plan if needed.  My journey to get on stage may be a long process but with Jessica in my corner "Anything is Possible."  With that being said, if you want a great Personal Trainer that will Walk the Line with you, than I would highly recommend IFBB Pro Jessica Bowman.
