We had a an awesome experience. Jonathan and his team are very knowledgeable. We were there for Krav Maga.May 7, 2018Verified
Been training with JJ for over two years, and I couldn’t be more pleased! I went from squatting 55lbs to 145lbs! I’m healthy, I’m lean, and I’m strong. His method is genius, and it works. Thanks, JJ!Mar 31, 2018Verified
I initially went to Sparta Academy, just because I was trying out gyms in my area, but after my Training sessions with Jonathan, I signed up for a year contact. Jonathan was very professional and motivating without being over the top. The staff at SPARTA ACADEMY had very good energy, not to mention the facility was neat and clean which was a major plus.Mar 28, 2018Verified
I purchased eight personal training sessions with Jonathan. By the third session after the anger outburst he had, I knew I would never go back. I didn't receive a refund for the remainder of the sessions nor an apology. If you're looking for someone professional and that has somewhat of a filter, I'd suggest looking elsewhere.Jan 9, 2018VerifiedJonathan H.'s reply
