About Tessa Yannone
Tessa Yannone is a health and fitness writer and strength coach based in Boston where she is currently the Wellness Editor at Boston Magazine.

Quickly falling in love with the weight room and the process of getting strong she pursued coaching at a weightlifting facility in Bloomington, Indiana. While there, she picked up powerlifting and has competed at the national level and realized that she could combine the love she has for writing with the love she found under a barbell.

She is an active member of the fitness community in Boston and continues to coach and work with women to help them discover their own strength.
