    Jake is very knowledgable and really knows his stuff. But perhaps more importantly, Jake is a super guy. He makes himself available throughout the day for any and all questions. He makes me feel like I'm his only client.

    Jake is an excellent trainer. It hasn't been long and I already feel and see results. He's beyond encouraging, motivating, and fun to workout with! (Plus He helps me to laugh at myself!) I enjoy the variations in his workouts and that's he's always pushing me to do my best. Training with Jake at my home, given that I have a 3 year old son, has allowed me to make fitness and my health a priority again! Fyi* he's great with kids and dogs! ;)

    Hi Sarah I'm just reaching out to you, my apologies if this is the wrong person. I had a review from a Sarah M saying I never returned her message. This is the only Sarah M I can find on my list but no message from you has been sent to me. I'm very sorry for that Sarah I'd never knowingly not return someone's questions. If you wouldn't mind would you let me know the message you sent so I can contact Thumbtack and find out why I didn't receive your message? I'm sure you've found yourself a trainer by now but if you haven't it would be great to meet Again my apologies Look forwarded to hearing from and I'll be speaking to thumbtack. Jake

    Jake has been great so far! I don't normally leave reviews, but he definitely deserves one. He's been extremely accommodating to both my budget and schedule. He spent a lot of time with me during my consultation and I love the accommodations provided if you go to him. He's also extremely accessible, even on off days. I can't wait to continue working with him!

    Jake helped me with training advice and nutrition advice when he used to live in the UK, before he moved to LA. His information has really helped me, both in terms of improving health and fitness levels. He is incredibly motivating and inspiring - and he was so keen to help me as an individual and find out what would work best for me. I didn't like 'traditional' exercise, like endless runs or boring gym machines - but Jake could find ways to mix it up, keep it fresh and interesting, and I even managed to have fun along the way! I would definitely recommend Jake as a personal trainer to help you achieve your individual health and fitness goals.

  • Chris W. Mar 15, 2015
    Jake is like this mutant that the UK had to get rid of because he was getting the general public in too good of shape! The government got nervous and relocated him to the USA in the fitness protection program! Take advantage of his skills!!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Every day. The most important part of my Job is to learn how to do it better.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
My prices vary on a multiple of factors. Mainly: Where we Train e.g. Home visits, smaller gyms or boxing and larger gyms How often; the more sessions together the lower the costs, or if you Train with a friend together it can cut costs in half and help you motivate each other. The best way forward is to take the free no risk session and we'll talk through your budget. Everyone should have the chance to get healthy and to look and feel better.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
By the age of 18, I was very overweight, smoking, drinking, and ultimately miserable. Like so many people reading this, I had tried every diet that came along—sometimes succeeding for a few weeks, other times just a few hours. I truly believed that if only I could enjoy running, had better genes, or maintained a stronger willpower that I’d be fit, toned, and happy. Sadly, there is a wealth of misunderstanding regarding fitness, nutrition, and health. This is why countless people end up unhappy, unhealthy, and unable to achieve their goals. Luckily for me I was introduced to Matt Kendrick, a top trainer in England who was from my hometown. He helped me to see all of the nonsense that advertising, media, and magazines try to sell us. He showed me simple and fun ways to start achieving what most of us want: fit and healthy bodies. He helped me achieve the weight loss and attain the fit body I had always dreamed of. What I was not aware of back then is the amazing joy that comes from being really healthy and feeling in control of my physical body. As a result of the priceless education I learned from Matt, as well as the valuable lessons from personally leading a healthy and happy life, I have discovered my purpose and passion for life: helping others feel their best. I’ve had the chance to train under some of the best trainers from both England and Los Angeles, as well as earn diplomas and certifications from the National Personal Training Institute and National Academy of Sports Medicine. I am currently a certified Nutritional Consultant. Now I have the pleasure of helping other people achieve their own goals—whatever that might be—from losing weight, gaining muscle, completing a triathlon, or just wanting to kickbox the stress of the day away.
