At just 5'2", the last thing Jamie Eason Middleton imagined for her future was to become a model. Yet, for the past several years, she has done just that. With more than 100+ major magazine covers to her credit, Jamie has used her platform as both a writer and a model to help educate and inspire others to adopt a fit lifestyle.
As a former NFL cheerleader for the Houston Texans in 2001, Jamie's dance career was side-lined when she found a suspicious lump in her breast. The return to an inactive lifestyle as a corporate trainer took a toll on Jamie, both mentally and physically. Nearly five years after her initial lumpectomy, suspicious cells returned and Jamie decided to take control of her health. After hiring a personal trainer and nutritionist, she began her journey to a healthy lifestyle and ultimately to a new career.
Today, Jamie Eason Middleton is one of the most recognized female fitness icons in the world. She holds several fitness titles, including Hardbody Entertainment's World's Fittest Model, and has been featured as a writer and a model in hundreds of magazine layouts.
As a child I was always interested in sports such as Volleyball, and Baseball. I also enjoyed swimming and bike riding. But, I first became interested in fitness back in 2008. I was first motivated to join a local gym after picking up a friend's fitness magazine and seeing the strong beautiful female physiques featured within. I too wanted to be fit and healthy, and so, I started weight training.
Unfortunately, I made some progress but not the progress I was hoping for. Back then, I did not realized how important it was to be consistent and to have healthy eating habits in order to achieve that level of fitness I so badly wanted. It wasn't until after graduating nursing school, and after starting working as a nurse that I completely understood the importance of taking care of oneself and one's health. Having a set working schedule allowed me to have the time to focus and dedicate serious time to the gym.
I also took the time to read and to learn about nutrition. I learned the importance of healthy eating, food preparation and consistency in order to achieve one's fitness goals. I completely changed my body within six months and in 2010 had my first professional fitness photo shoot. As a result of that first photo shoot I was published for the first time in Planet Muscle Magazine for the months of August and September of 2010. I was also on the cover of Natural Muscle Magazine in the month of August 2010.
Since then I've had multiple features in Planet Muscle Magazine, I have published a fitness article in FitnessX Magazine, been featured in Fitness Gurls Magazine, World Physique Magazine â Swimsuit Edition, have been part of multiple fitness product TV commercials, was on the cover of Iron Man Magazine, Met-RX magazine, and in the September 2012, as well as on the international covers of Muscle & Fitness Magazine which was released in six different countries. I was also featured on Muscle & Fitness Hers Magazine and was on the cover of STRONG Fitness magazine in May/June of 2016.
Today, I continue to work full-time as a Registered Nurse in the ER in NYC. I also continue sharing my passion for health and fitness on my various social media sites in hopes that others could become motivated to to start exercising, eating healthy and changing their lives as well.

I am a mom of five little ones living in Southern CA. Exercise and outdoor activities have always been a part of my life. I ran cross country and track in high school and never had to worry about keeping weight off or building muscle.
Fast forward a few years…my husband and I were told we would never had children of our own. Fitness was not a priority at all, having a baby was. Thankfully the doctors were wrong. After 3 years of fertility treatments, including a miscarriage, we had five babies in under 6 1/2 years time.
At that point my body was a mess. I not only looked bad, I felt bad too. I knew I needed a plan and I knew I needed to make some serious changes. The temptation at that point was to either become frozen with discouragement or overactive in attempts to achieve some standard of perfection.
But either way would have led me down some very self-centered, self-focused, and self-motivating paths. My biggest motivation is not what I look like and fitness in and of itself is an empty goal. Fitness and healthy eating are a lifestyle because those little people that call me mom depend on me. I pursue my goals because I am able to serve others best when I am at my best. Fitness is not about simply caring well for myself, its about caring well for those I love most.
I have recently started a lifestyle blog in hopes of encouraging others in their own journeys. In regards to fitness I have no official certifications or any exciting nutrition credentials to add to my name, but I think there’s a place in the fitness world for those of us who have to learn on our own. I’m just a normal girl who simply had to figure it out and my goal is to help as many women as I possibly can do the same.
I'm a stay-at-home mother of two boys currently residing in Gilbert, AZ. As a busy mom constantly on the go, I know how easy it can be to feel overwhelmed and unable to make fitness a major part of life. I've always tried to stay active and make time for the gym, however it was just never a real priority for me.
It wasn't until I stumbled upon a post from Jamie Eason Middleton advertising the 2016 Lean Body Challenge, that I decided to make fitness and wellness a priority in my life. Since completing and winning the challenge, I have made it my personal mission to be an example and inspiration to other moms wanting to change their lives.
For me, it is more than helping moms look and feel better. It's about helping moms everywhere want to change their lives and provide a great example to their children.
