Finding the Model Fitness Method™ was the most important part of that journey.

into all her interests, including fitness and costume design. When Zandria isn’t modeling

Jessica was named by Park Cities People as 20 under 40 most influential in Dallas for her innovative and accessible approach to wellness and is a published cookbook author—her second book due later this year.
She is certified by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) in personal training as well as pre & post natal fitness. In addition, she also has 200YTT from Strala Yoga. Jessica has been modeling for over two decades and credits the Model Fitness Method™ with repairing her torn abdominal muscles after her third pregnancy and propelling her into lingerie modeling. Jessica throws out the old adage “no pain, no gain” and believes life is meant to be enjoyed, living as young as possible for as long as possible through a whole lifestyle approach.
Katie began Runway Fitness as a client at a time her environment was constantly changing. She traveled across the United States with her boyfriend and found the content of the classes and their accessibility fit perfectly for her lifestyle and goals.
Runway Fitness allows her to maintain shape for her modeling career with MMG and IMD because the Model Fitness Method focuses on long lean muscles and burning overall body fat for a toned body without the bulk. This regimen also aligned with her preparation when competing in the Miss USA pageant system. Prior to modeling and competing in the Miss USA pageant system, she focused on traditional bodybuilding movements in a commercial gym and was an NPC bikini competitor. She later realized she was not going to achieve the many goals she had – the most important one being comfortable in her own skin. So here she is now to share everything she’s learned and motivate each client to be confident in their own skin, wherever they are in their journey. She received her group class certification through ACE, and is ready to help you reach your goals!

Lark, a USC graduate and long-time client of Runway Fitness, transitioned from CrossFit enthusiast to dedicated demo model and fitness instructor. Her journey took an exciting turn when she was discovered by a modeling agent at a competition, leading to opportunities in LA, New York, and Miami fashion weeks and editorial modeling in New York City.
