"I hired Jon in April and I must confess my heart really wasnt in the process. I wanted to be healthy and lose weight, but I really was not committed. Jon was great, he was patient, he figured out how quickly I became bored and changed up my work outs on a regular basis. We have worked out in the backyard, in the garage, in the house, parks and hiking. He didnt question whether I lost weight or gained weight, he simply focused on the now. I am so grateful for his initial attitude, because at that point if he had pushed too hard, I would have quit.
At some point along our journey I became committed. I no longer hire Jon, now I work with him to improve my life. I pick his brain for infinite nutritional knowledge, as well as practical ways to get better choices in my life daily. Jon comes up some ingenious ideas that work for my lifestyle, not just the off the shelf, straight out of some wellness magazine answers. He asks how I am doing things now and then we make minor changes that I can stick with. I am an all or nothing kind of person and Jon regularly reminds me that just a little change will get me further down the road than no change and if I go all in there is strong possibility I will see failure and quit. Or as Jon says Some IS EVERYTHING!
I have had many trainers, but NONE who reads me so well and regularly speaks to me in my language, keeping me on the right track. His creativity to my work outs and his dedication to directing me in my wellness choices have been invaluable. While I was in Houston for 3 months, Jon trained me utilizing the tools I had in my home in Houston and Skype!
I have had lower back pain for at least 15 years and between Jon and my chiropractor I have been pain free for a few months. Recently my back was really bothering me and I was afraid it was going to be a long drawn out process, but within two body works from Jon and two chiropractor appointments, and I am back to being pain free again. So, in addition to his physical training and nutrition information, you also have access to someone who goes far beyond the typical massage therapist. Jon understands how your body should move and what is preventing it from operating optimally and he can help you get your full range of motion back.
Jon is not only a trainer and massage therapist; he is truly a wellness coach with a trainers education. He invests in understanding his clients and creates environments to assist them in living a healthier life. I have often tell others, I think I am getting the type of treatment from a staff of trainers, wellness professionals and massage therapists that would be available to a professional athlete. I feel so much better, physically and emotionally, and I must admit I do like that my clothes are getting bigger all the time."
