About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I have established a history of success with both general population and elite athletes over 20 years. I have never had a client leave for unsatisfactory results. I use a comprehensive approach based on science. My education and professional background has given me an in depth understanding of the human body and how it is affected by various types of exercise, nutrition plans, supplements, herbs, essential oils and hormonal replacement therapy. I have spoken at 3 national conferences on such topics.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Helping people grow personally while reaching their goals and doing things that they never thought were possible.

    Jeremy is professional and extremely knowledgeable. Workouts are short and sweet but I always leave feeling sore and accomplished. He definitely knows which exercises will target which muscle groups. He's very willing to work with me and my schedule to train as often as I need. Glad I didn't go with a trainer at a traditional gym! Great value!

    We decided on a comprehensive 5 day a week physical training schedule and meal planning option that met my needs to lose weight and develop strength through personalized one on one training and feedback. Jeremiah is distinct from the other trainers in the knowledge and education (MS) that backs his recommendations and training plans. There are no gimmicks or wonder supplements here...Just strategic training with feedback and clean eating over time. Its great to get corrections and feedback while training to know that you are doing the moves correctly and less likely to get injured.

    It has been an amazing experience having Jeremiah as a trainer! He works with my crazy schedule and in each session pushes me further and further while still considering my body's limits. With extensive knowledge of diet and exercise, he guides me on changing from my old lazy self into a more healthy and fit person. Without a doubt, I will continue to use his services.

    Jeremiah gets it. As a person educated in the health and human performance science it took me about 20 minutes to trust Jeremy. He's focused on data and science and now I've committed the next few month to getting results from his approach...and you should too.

    I'm in my second week and it's going great. Jeremy is very professional and extremely competent. I was looking for some specific help in regaining my return-to-work-ability and building up lost strength due to a work related acciden. He knows how to address my advanced rehabilitation needs for the injury as well as how to build me up from where I am without pushing me too hard. I trust his knowledge and his problem solving. So far so great!!

    Have enjoyed Jeremy's training. He's able to turn his well-learned knowledge into the perfect application -- immensely benefiting his clients. He currently does this full-time out of his home, with adequate equipment for achieving multiple goals varying clients may have. I personally am into strength training and muscle building, and noticed gains right out of the gate...no wasted time. He's a very genuine person, easy to talk to, always available, and serious about helping clients realize results in a healthy, sustainable manner.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Our first consultation is free. I spend most of that time allowing the client to get to know me and get comfortable. We spend time talking about their personal health history, goals and exercise background. My background in biomechanics makes me a very quick judge of strengths and weaknesses. Normally I know what weaknesses need to be corrected before you get to the desk to sit down and talk. Our first workouts will be spent addressing these. Once major weaknesses are addressed, we can begin training harder to continue making significant strides towards your goals with much lower risk of injury.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a B.S. in exercise science and an M.S. in biomechanics with minors in exercise physiology and sports medicine. I am a certified strength and conditioning specialist, a certified personal trainer, and I was a college strength and conditioning coach at the College of Charleston and the University of Tennessee for 7 years.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Yes, fees are monthly, due on your anniversary each month. This gets you 5 days of training per week, a nutrion plan, and a discount on supplements. This makes budgeting easier and gets you all services for one low monthly rate.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I loved working out and wanted to help people. After deciding that I would rather help people prevent sickness rather than treat it, I dropped pre-med and changed to exercise science. I have never looked back.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Weight loss, correcting lower back and shoulder issues, and training athletes for competition are what I do most. However, I have trained over 5000 people of all sizes, shapes, ages, and backgrounds. My youngest client was 13, while my oldest was 85. I have trained Olympians, professional fitness models, stroke patients, heart attack patients, and everything in between. Most typical client, is one that puts a high value on knowledge and skill.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look at their education and experience not their 6 pack. At least 50% (at least) of personal trainers are using steroids. One of my bosses in strength and conditioning once said " if they are bigger than everyone else and leaner than everyone else their probably juicing". It a good rule. And as their client, you should know 2 things, they juice because they don't know how to get those results without it, and they will likely overtrain you because they haven't had to personally learn proper recovery techniques. You want someone that knows how to get you there naturally, safely, and efficiently.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
About my profession: Education and experience are important. Look for both. About me: I hate hearing "i can't!"...give it a good effort first. I'll decide if you can't (with good communication on the subject and your feedback). In that instance, we'll move on and when I think you're ready, we'll try again.
