Latest Review: Jon is truly an outstanding trainer and person!
He has exceeded my expectations - my #1 requirement I wanted/needed was to reduce my chronic pain and learn the proper way to exercise so that I stop getting injured and giving up. My #2-4 goals were to tone up, increase my energy and lose weight. In just under 2 months, I am extremely satisfied with my progress.
Jon has educated me on the big picture - the components and steps of becoming fit and staying healthy for a lifetime. He has taught me about my body and instructed me on corrective exercises that have ELIMINATED the stiffness, limited mobility, pain and fatigue I have struggled with for so many years. He has taught me how to use my Elliptical to build a base to get my heart rate and metabolism functioning. He has taught me proper breathing so that I am using my full body rather than my upper thoracic - especially during exercising. He has worked wonders on me with myofascial bodywork/massage - helping me move and function again. We have discussed nutrition, diet and after his recommendations - I finally feel that I am making wise choices of what my body needs. Under his training and wisdom on what would be most effective for me to eat, I banished my muffin tops and have increased energy and improved mental clarity. He had increased my self-awareness and self-knowledge in a way that I cannot describe.
He doesnt just coach/train - he educates, motivates, and is sincerely engaged in teaching me HOW TO TAKE CARE OF ME and MY BODY - not just now, a quick fix, but for a lifetime.
Recently, as we trained on core strength and balance, I listened to him with great admiration as I discovered how to brace my muscles to protect my spine and how I have always stood in a way that has perpetuated my back pain. It was an Aha! moment when I vividly realized - my mind became deeply aware of my muscles and how they connect and work together. It struck me how incredible lucky I am that I found Jon. Jon is not just a trainer or therapist. He is honestly gifted in what he knows and how he does it - his application of knowledge, his ability to work with people - to reach them. He is passionate about it and he is successful at it. It is powerful to be on the receiving end of someone who truly loves what he does and is good at it.
I consider Jon to be a "walking/talking instruction manual for my body - the one I all should have born with!". I have been inquisitive and determined to get it right his time, and I am - with Jon's patience and knowledge. He is simply stellar - a real professional. I have had at least 5 other trainers I have worked with in the past 10 years - Jon is eons beyond them in what I am gaining from his experience and ability. i strongly encourage anyone who REALLY wants to know their body and to make changes to consider Jon.
