    I really enjoyed my sessions with Jerry Steward he was professional and showed a genuine interest in my total health. He offered me meal plans and suggested things I could do between our sessions. During our sessions he was very supportive and always encouraged me to push myself. Jerry is an excellent trainer with proven results.

    Hello my name is dionne and my trainer is Jerry and he does a magnificent job at training, checking on me, ensuring me that I can keep on track. During our time in the gym he encourages me. Whatever I tell him he listens...and for a person who has a hard time I have lost at least 15 lbs so far...my schedule is now hectic but he calls and text to see how I am doing with my food intake, my exercise and how my day is going overall. If I don't come to the gym, oh he calls me and ask me if anything is wrong. I can fully say that he is one trainer I wouldn't change for the world.

About this pro

My attention to my clients is unparalleled. If you look around you'll see other fitness professionals talk about how great their workouts are. However, exercise is only 20% of the battle. If your nutrition habits are sub-par, you'll have a tough time seeing success. This is why I do a full fitness profile on your first day and every 6 weeks. In that fitness profile, I'll assess your body fat percentage (how toned you are), your resting heart rate (how well conditioned you are) as well as your caloric need (how many calories you need to consume to create fat loss) this is in addition to weight, girth measurements and performance tests within my training. Finally,I teach you to use myftinesspal, a food journaling application, so that I can check what you're eating everyday. Even if we're working out 3-4 times a week, fitness is a 7 day a week effort and I'm there with you every step of the way to make sure your habits outside of our workouts don't sabotage all your hard work. I like a lot of things actually. I like helping people achieve success they never thought was possible. I'm a high energy individual so I love helping people raise their energy level so they can power through their workday or recover from it. I LOVE when my clients tell me that friends that they have not seen in a while, gush over their new physiques. That's probably the most satisfying

    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I do a full fitness profile on your first day and every 6 weeks. In that fitness profile, I'll assess your body fat percentage (how toned you are), your resting heart rate (how well conditioned you are) as well as your caloric need (how many calories you need to consume to create fat loss) this is in addition to weight, girth measurements and performance tests within my training. We then review your fitness goals and help you develop a fitness plan that helps meet those goals. Some people come for training and others just come for guidance. As a FitPro, I am happy to help with both and welcome the opportunity to serve you by helping you reach your goals.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I am certified as a personal trainer under the Nation Exercise & Sports Training Association ( NESTA ). I graduated from the University of Missouri with my BS in biological sciences. I stayed active in my youth with sports and continue a fit and active life as an adult; however, I don't think none of that is nearly as important than my belief that a healthy life is a happy life. I work just as hard as my clients in leading a fit and active lifestyle.
    Coverage Area for Upward Fitness is about 30+ miles of Saint Louis, MO.
