I've been an athlete and dancer all my life. When I was young I trained to become a professional ballet dancer from the age of 5. Performing roles with Oregon Ballet Theater, Jefferson Dancers and graduated with a BFA in Ballet from the U of U and student company member of Utah Ballet. I went on to perform professionally at the 2002 Olympics and with various choreographers in the Bay Area. After I moved to SF with several injuries, I switched to the path of fitness.
I had a labrum tear for 16 years with no one discovering what it was until many years later.
This led me to the path of figuring out how to help my on and off hip pain. This pain would rotate from my back, glutes, SI joint, and pelvic floor. A recent flare-up from a PT left me on my back with nerve pain not able to walk. Through my training as a Corrective Exercise Specialist, I was able to self-heal and take my pain from an 8 to a zero. The process was long and humbling teaching me patience and self-love. I know how frustrating it is to not be able to do normal activities. Thus my passion to help others get out of chronic pain and back into daily life and the sport they love.

“I love seeing small gains, inside and out, when people take the journey towards health. I love making people smile and laugh when it gets tough. Teaching has made it relevant that it really is possible to make change happen at any point in your life. You just have to want it. I’m really excited to share that journey with you.”
Testimonial: " I've taken Jessa Freeman's class at Mod Physique numerous times, and she is one of the best movement instructors I've ever had the chance to learn from. Jessa's classes work on strength and stability for the joints in a way that yoga alone does not address. She teaches therapeutic movements that help to relieve mechanical wear on the body from our jobs." - Dr. Liya Leng
