That’s the kind of fuel I need to be happy in my professional life. I use all my knowledge, dedication and capacities to motivate my trainees in order to enjoy their positive feedback.

    I have been working with JS for 8 months now. We do 3 or 4 sessions per week and he is great at mixing up the sessions so that we cover full body and cardio. He has a knack of knowing my limits and just stretching me to achieve greater goals. I am now fitter than I have ever been and recently ran my first 8k and I managed to run a 5k in under 30 minutes. JS is also very knowledgeable about nutrition which means you can get the advice you need whenever you need it.

    I signed up with Jean-Sebastien a little over 9 months ago. I had researched a few local trainers online and had tried out a couple of trainers short term that were associated with a gym I had joined. When I went to the initial assessment, what struck me the most was how knowledgeable he was. After the initial workout I sensed this was a trainer that could really help me. I am so grateful that I have been able to work with Jean-Sebastien. He has not only been a trainer for me, but a coach, a teacher, a confidence booster and a really funny guy. He can make the workout a joy rather than a chore. I love to ask him questions because he actually teaches you about your body, how it moves and how it works. He is also patient and listens to your feed back to guide him in creating the best workout for you. He knows when to push you as well to make it count. I have gained so much more than muscle and stamina. I have gained knowledge of my body. I have gained confidence. I have learned that with time and work I can achieve what I thought I could not do. I strongly recommend Jean-Sebastien for anyone who is truly serious about getting fit. He will guide you on a path that will get you toward your goals.

    My son has been working with Jean-Sebastian since June. My son was very self conscious about his weight and starting High School. I was looking for a trainer that would be a good fit for him and Jean-Sebastian was it! He never talks down to my son and always has a friendly and encouraging way about him that ALWAYS puts my son at ease. My son started HS with a renewed self confidence that makes this mother very happy!! :)

    I am a 38 years old woman. I have never been a top athlete, but I always maintain a good health and fitness level. I have been training for one year with Darwin Fitness - one hour/three times per week and I am extremely happy with the results. I lost 12 pounds of fat and gained at least 5 pounds of muscle. I never got bored with Jean Sebastien's workouts and session by session I always had the feeling that I learned something. Since I left Orlando for Lakeland, I cannot workout the same way anymore, But Jean Sebastien still coaches me online and gives me a follow up one on one workout and a nutrition consultation once a month. I definitely recommend Darwin Fitness.

    ''I've been working with Jean-Sebastien for over a year and have seen amazing results in that time. I have lost 20 pounds of body fat and have never felt stronger or healthier. I've also never had so much consistency with my energy levels, diet and mind-set. JS is passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm he brings to every session. His easy going, friendly personality creates a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. He makes each workout challenging, creative and most importantly, fun! He motivates me to push past my perceived limits to get the results I want. My strength and endurance have both improved immensely. When I met my JS my goal was to run a 5K, 4 months later we ran 15K together without stopping. We have since ran many 5ks together, improving my time with every single race. If you are serious about changing your life for the better, JS will lead you every step of the way.''

    I am a newbie to strength training. I have been working with Jean-Sebastien just over three months, and though a short time, I already feel an amazing difference in my strength and in my outlook. My lofty goal before meeting Jean-Sebastien was to begin weight bearing exercises for healthy bones in a safe way that I would enjoy and continue for a lifetime. I wasn’t sure this was possible. It is with the right trainer! I am thankful I found Jean-Sebastien. He is his philosophy. I appreciate that he takes the time to discuss and research my specific needs and develop a plan just for me. I feel secure with him because of his gradual approach and emphasis on correct form. He teaches me the “whys” behind my workouts and diet, so I can think through my exercising and eating for myself. Because of his balanced approach, I do not become overwhelmed. I work out hard three times a week, but I rest my muscles on my days off. He has renewed my love for running, and this joy will by my impetus to continue building my strength and endurance. I have been in over thirty sessions, and no two have been the same! Jean-Sebastien sets the bar very high for trainers; he is exceedingly professional, supportive, and intelligent with a passion for fitness that utterly inspires.

    I was scared because I am not big on gyms. JS is somebody very patient who takes enough time to teach and always explain the reason why.

    I wish I could continue but I have to leave Florida. It was a great experience and I will build on it. Come with your motivation he will show you the way!
