TESTIMONIALS


Jack is extremely talented - and I highly recommend him if you’re looking for a personal trainer. He creates engaging work out plans, gears them all around recommendations and treatment plans from my Physio. Even when the motivation is low, he keeps you captivated. All around great guy! Go see him!

I am not an athletic person by any means, but as a recreational runner, I had a goal of completing a marathon. I have also never had a personal trainer before, but I wanted to make sure that I would stay injury-free as I increased my running volume. Jack worked with me for my whole marathon training cycle, and I felt very safe and confident in his expertise. He pushed me to develop my strength and endurance in our sessions, while being very mindful of any weaknesses or pain/overwork of my body as my training progressed. He was also very encouraging and patient, and always made sure that I would perform the workouts correctly. I kept seeing improvements in my strength and fitness, and ultimately, I did complete my marathon comfortably and injury-free, and I do credit so much of that to the program that Jack had developed for me.

Jack is a fantastic trainer!!! I've been training with Jack for three months. I can obviously feel myself getting stronger, fitter and healthier. Workout used to be a stressful thing for me, and I also had lower back pain. So it's difficult for me to exercise on a consistent basis. But after I started to train here, except for the weekly personal training, Jack also helps to plan the home gym workouts according to your requests, which frees me from overthinking what kind of workout I need to do. The fitness improvements also give me more motivation to keep going to the gym.

It's definitely a fun environment for people to get training. I feel more comfortable to train here than in huge gyms. You only need to focus on yourself.

Really appreciate it~ Highly recommended!

I've been training with Jack weekly for several months now and have had nothing but a positive experience!

I had a lot of nervousness going into training in general as a queer/trans person recovering from top surgery, but Jack's program has been super affirming and helpful in rebuilding my strength from surgery. I started from basically level zero, and have seen measurable progress (and can do so many pushups now!). He's really good at pushing and motivating, as well as setting up an intuitive plan for outside of sessions. This is the first time in my adult life I've consistently worked out, and felt good doing it. That's so exciting!

The space is comfortable, easy to get to and has a shiny new cable/weight machine. Definitely recommend!
