Who We Are
Hershel Shoats is originally from Coffeyville, KS, but has been living in Corpus Christi, TX for about 10 years. He served our country in the Navy, and it is during that time that he developed a passion for fitness. It was not until about 5 years ago that Hershel decided to use his passion for fitness to help others as a personal trainer.
Jessica Shoats came to Corpus Christi from Altoona, IA. She worked as an athletic trainer for several years, and now works for an orthopedic surgeon. She developed an interest in using nutrition to help the body become more efficient and healthy. Jess is a certified athletic trainer, as well as a certified sports nutrition specialist.
Fitness brought these two together 7 years ago. Both have competed in several bodybuilding shows, Jess in figure and Hershel in heavyweight bodybuilding as well as physique. Seeing the poor state of health in Corpus Christi (and other locations) led Hershel and Jess to start Silverback Wellness, LLC. The goal is to provide personal training services, fitness classes, and nutritional services to as many people as they can reach! They want to educate and empower individuals to regain control over their health and to stop relying on food and medications to make them feel better.
