Jonathan has been a great addition to my exercise life. As I'm lucky enough to be a trainer of the 2012 KY Derby winner, my personal fitness had gone to the crapper. Jonathan has designed an environment to get me back in shape. I couldn't be happier since hiring Jonathan. Doug O

I am an athlete at heart and I found myself completely unhappy with my body and health about a year ago. After trying to work on my self esteem first, I decided in September it was time to get back into fitness like I had been my whole life. I came on thumbtack and scheduled meetings with five different trainers. I met with JJ first and cancelled the rest before I even had a workout with him. Honestly I hired him only based off of his personality and game plan for for getting me back into shape. He literally is one of the funniest people I have met. However he doesn't mess around when it's time to work. And each workout I find that he can push me to limits I didn't know I had. I have lost 24 pounds so far but have become so much stronger and healthier. We weight lift, do cardio, and he has taught me personal defense. I was skeptical paying money to get fit but I'm investing in my health and it truly makes me happy. (He is going to make fun of me for getting sappy on this but whatever he deserves it)

I have been going to a few private classes at Spartan and I'm really happy! Jonathan is a great personal trainer and he really pushes your limits. I'm actually really motivated for my classes and making good progress.

Jonathan is the perfect personal trainer for busy professionals. He is patient, focused, supportive, professional, and educated. But he’s also hilarious and fun. I’m completely drenched in sweat after every workout, but always leave the gym in a calmer state of mind and feeling a lot better than when I walked in. I love working out with Jonathan and so will you!

Prior to working with JJ, my lifestyle wasn't very active. I knew i needed a personal trainer to help with my exercise routine, and JJ was the perfect guy. Since I started working with him 2 months ago, I am now definitely stronger, and he'll push you during training but still make it enjoyable. He also pointed out the things I needed to maintain during my off days, such as cardio. I definitely recommend him to help anyone who wants to start an active lifestyle.
