WHY I BECAME A PERSONAL TRAINER
Many clients have asked me "why did you become a personal trainer?" For me it was a simple decision. As a teenager I was very out of shape. After school I would watch TV for hours and eat junk food. I never exercised and I would avoid almost all physical activity. By the time I was 20 years old, I was wearing 38" pants and I weighed almost 200 pounds! I was very worried about my physical condition and lack of energy. I needed to do something!
I hired a personal trainer to come to my house and help me get in shape. (I was too embarrassed to go to the gym.) During the next few months, I met with my trainer 2-3 times a week and watched my diet. My weight slowly began to drop and my energy level began to increase. Within 6 months, I was feeling great about myself and I finally joined a gym. Over the next few years I continued to gain muscle mass while reducing my body fat percentage.
Because of my struggles with weight gain and physical fitness as a teenager, I knew that when I graduated from college I wanted to work in the fitness industry. I began learning more about fitness and nutrition and I became certified as a personal trainer. Since then, I have earned five additional fitness certifications and I have taught my clients the safest and most effective methods of exercising, while providing nutrition guidance to facilitate this process.

"I wasn't expecting dramatic results in only six weeks. I was under no illusion that I would be featured on the cover of "Men's Fitness" on week seven. However, I was surprised by what was accomplished in such a short period of time. My trainer was an invaluable help and cheerleader for me, and without his knowledge and expertise I would not have accomplished what I did. I look forward to continue training with him and seeing the results in the coming months."

Jason keeps me motivated to continue with my workouts and is always happy to answer my questions and to provide suggestions to improve my training.

"I have seen huge changes in my body shape including my dress size and the amount of weight and body fat I have lost. The feeling you get when friends and family notice the changes makes all the hard work worth it. I have also changed the food both my family and I eat which has led to a much healthier lifestyle. I am amazed at how much more energy I have.."
