I am Jessica Borg Ghigo who is a licensed pharmacist, a qualified Nutritionist and also a certified personal trainer by ISSA, and exercise to music instructor by EHFA and OCR. I have also a level one CrossFit trainer
My passion for fitness started with the love for gymnastics when I was pre teen and grew up with me throughout my teens and early twenties. I feel blessed to have such an athletic background which gave me discipline, ability to prioritize and better health awareness.
After my gymnastics days were over, and entered university of Malta, I found myself wanting a sport but could not find the right one which gave me the same passion I felt in gymnastics. The weight issue always comes along especially when studying takes the majority of one’s hours during the day and so went to the gym. I still had that fire to train and push my limits and that is when I started seeing results... that is muscle gain, strength, and leanness. That passion came back and continued to deepen my knowledge through research about dieting, training styles and the bodybuilding lifestyle in general....I had no idea what a lifestyle change I was going into; in a very positive way that is....and I got hooked. Following that I still was not convinced about the athletic part of this sport... I wanted to perform a sport not just look the part and so along cam CrossFit. I fell in love. Gymnastics and weight training in one?!! Heaven. From CrossFit came weightlifting which is more my forte and started competing in National weightlifting competitions as well. I felt that I finally found my niche. But I never stop learning. Being active and pushing the body into learning new things, improving my overall performance is always on my mind. This also helped me enjoy training even more and will also motivate me help others to reach their goals; not just looks but overall fitness. Being a pharmacist helped me realize even more that prevention is way better than cure thus the birth of A.I.M Fitness came about to inspire people and motivate them to be active thus reaching their health related aims.
Always A.I.M. High
