Personal health coach Jaime J. Hernandez is the founder of Health and Exercise Prescriptions®. Jaime (pronounced hi-may) has been in the health industry for sixteen years, and has seen many different approaches to health and fitness. His personal philosophy is that we should treat the body as a whole. All body systems are integrated and communicate on some level to keep them in a state of homeostasis or balance.
He began his journey into the health industry by working at Twenty-Four Hour Fitness in Spokane, Washington, where he acquired a personal training certification (APEX) and later a certification in personal training with nutritional planning.
Jaime has three other certifications; The International Fitness Professional Association certification (IFPA) and National Strength and Conditioning Association certification ( NSCA-CPT ).His most current certification is The Medical Exercise Specialist (MES)by the American Academy of Fitness Post Rehab Professionals. Post rehab is the development and implementation of fitness programs that will enhance functional capabilities for those who have special conditions or previous injuries.
Jaime also worked at the Bellingham Back and Neck Clinic for two and a half years as a physical therapist aide. It has been valuable for him to have the influence and perspective of both approaches(D.C./P.T.) to musculoskeletal manipulation.
Jaime has worked with hundreds of people, ranging from the ages of 9 to 82, with a variety of health issues. His goal is to help the people of this community take charge of their health with education and proper instruction, to tailor a health promotion program that is clear and complete. This enables the individual to “experience a true health transformation.”
