Jake has been my personal trainer for almost a year now has done an amazing job moving me towards my fitness goals. When I first met Jake, I had been trying to get fit/ gain strength/ lose fat for almost 6 years. I was stuck in an unhealthy cycle of bad eating, low energy levels, and inconsistent exercise regimens. It's been a very long road back to health, but Jake has helped me every step of the way. He excels in: Customized Training: Jake was able to help me customize my training based on my health and body goals. We started by boosting my cardiac health to reach a minimum threshold of fitness for the first few months and then moved on to boot camp training when I got stronger. Most recently, we've started focusing on progressive weight training so I can improve my body definition. Unlike other trainers, I've worked with in the past, our sessions are NOT a walk in the park. They are hard and for someone like me who wanted to see real results, they are exactly what I need. Flexible Schedule: Jake works with my schedule (which can be unpredictable) and is highly flexible in scheduling sessions. We've done sessions M-Sat from 7am all the way to 8pm. Detailed Trainer: Jake is very good at knowing when you still have some juice left in you to push harder and when you don't. He'll push you up to your limit but never beyond it. He pays very close attention to your physical performance during exercises and adjusts the workout accordingly to make sure you're optimizing 100% of your time but never overdoing/ losing posture to the point of hurting yourself. Deep Understanding Of the Body: Jake is also very sensitive and responsive if I've injured myself or am feeling any out-of-the-ordinary discomfort. He is VERY good at creating exercise modifications to target desired muscles groups while minimizing stress on injured areas. Creative and Thoughtful: He's always coming up with new and interesting/ challenging excercises for his clientele so workouts never get boring. Not everyone needs this but I am someone who does because doing the same thing every week kills me. Jake is truly passionate about fitness and body health and it comes through in his work as a personal trainer. I highly recommend him for pretty much anyone at any level of fitness, particularly those like myself, who were starting from scratch and needed a lot of encouragement. I have seen significant changes in my body composition over the past couple of a months by eating healthier diet, weight/ strength training with Jake, and cardio/ resistance training on my own. Could not recommend him more highly!May 22, 2015
I have worked with a few different trainers throuout the years and Jake is one of the best. He always shows up to each session with a precise plan and is dedicated to getting you the specific results you are looking for . He is positive, upbeat and encouraging no matter what the circumstance. He is flexible and has accommoded my ever changing/hectic schedule numerous times. I would recommend him to anyone looking to get in great shape!Dec 28, 2017Verified
Jake has been great for me thus far! He has an A+ attitude, knows how to motivate me and is very knowledgeable. He pushes me during every session and knows exactly how hard to push me without causing injury. Whenever I need advice he has always been there for me and I feel like he is always present. I've seen a lot of progress since working with him. He is young, but I know he will go far in the industry! I feel very fortunate that Jake is my trainer!Jan 5, 2017Verified

Jake impressed me during our first session together and has continued to impress me each step of the way. He is punctual, attentive, and fun to train with! He always makes sure I'm practicing with proper form and pushing my limits, which has helped me make a lot of progress in my overall strength. Jake has proven to be very knowledgeable about the body and exercise so I highly recommend him as your trainer!Jan 13, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?-1 on 1 personal training: $90/session **Discount packages available -Semi Private Personal training: $60/person (No more than 3 people with each person having their own individualized program) -Online training: $150/month ***Message me for details about my online program. It is a good option if it tough fitting an in-person personal trainer into your budget.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First we start with some dialog, where we talk on the phone or I send an email asking up to 10 questions about the new client and their fitness goals. This is important to do before the first session because it will help me plan an effective 1st session. The initial session involves a consultation, movement assessment, basic movement instruction, and a unique workout that is specifically designed around the clients fitness goals. I offer complimentary first sessions because I think it is important for a new customer to see if the trainer is right for them. Most people prefer to test drive a car before they purchase one, or maybe more relatable to NYC, most people prefer to look at an apartment and make sure it is real before they sign a year long lease. The new client needs to know who they will be working with before they make a commitment and me as a trainer needs to know who my client is and make sure they are right for me and they are motivated and serious enough to continue working with me.
