Jess Hibbeln

My name is Jess, and I am the Head Trainer at Golds Gym in North Charleston. My love for coaching and training stems back to my adolescence where I was a three sport high school athlete, volleyball, basketball, and softball. This led me to a Volleyball and Softball scholarship in my hometown. I continued my journey through 4 years of college and knew almost immediately that I wasn’t done. I started personal training with young athletes and adults in 2010 as well as training to play semiprofessional beach volleyball. Through two career ending injuries, my passion changed. I knew competing was no longer in the cards, but helping others train for, prevent, and rehab gave me a whole new love in my life.

It was then I began working with kids throughout my community as a Head Volleyball Coach/Head Club Volleyball coach for 8 years with kids ranging from 6 to 18 years old.

I want to see the children in our community grow and reach their goals as athletes and as young adults. My goal is to enhance their lives through positive motivation, hard work, and learning how their bodies work most efficiently, all while enjoying the process.
