About this pro

My passion is helping you experience the joy and satisfaction of obtaining your personal goals. We are all individuals, and our situations are unique, thus all workouts and programming are personalized. My career in health and fitness has allowed me to cover a broad spectrum of needs: from injury rehabilitation, mobility, and cardiovascular health, to weight loss, fitness nutrition, sports performance, and conditioning, and complete lifestyle change. Through your training, you will learn how to approach each and every day to ensure success, which is simply making the right choices, more often. Maximizing what you like, what works, while minimizing those elements you don't. Simple Solutions. Results. Get Fit. Be Healthy. Stay Confident.

The clients. I was fortunate to find this path at a young age and continue to explore its depths. From traditional gym training to the studio environment to mobile fitness to consulting to online success coaching... fitness has been an avenue of exploration. Helping you uncover your path to success requires an experience that is easy, lucrative, and fun.

    Jake is professional, inspiring and reliable. His method for training is innovative, safe and smart. My fitness goals are for longterm health and vitality. He works me hard and I pushing myself, yet I never feel depleted during the day after a workout. My energy has increased significantly and I love the way I feel!

  • Lisa Zell

    Great, personalized program! Jake is very knowledable and great to work with!

  • Jason H.

    I have trained with Jake for 6 years and my entire experience has been incredibly positive. He has innovative training ideas and motivational techniques that have really worked for me. I have cut my body fat composition from 26% to 12%. This year alone I have completed 3 running events including a half marathon and 2 triathlons. Without Jake, I would have never been able to accomplish any of that. He has given me the confidence and support to make me an active person. It is a powerful feeling to know that fitness has become a permanent part of my life. I would recommend Jake to anyone that wants to better their life through health and fitness.

  • Sara C.

    I’m a believer…after almost 3 years of training with Jake, through starting out to get in shape after a baby, working out through the duration of another pregnancy, then getting my body back again; I am fit, toned, and have more energy than ever before. By sticking with my routine throughout my pregnancy, I was able to have a strong quick delivery of my daughter, and recover and be back working with Jake in less than 2 weeks. Functional training works for me. It allows me to carry a 20lb baby during the day, lift my 40lb son into bed at night, and have the strength and energy to run, bike, climb or play with my kids whenever the chance arrives, and be toned and sexy without being bulky. I love that I can squeeze in a quick workout whenever I have ANY extra time in my busy day.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The first step is a consultation, either in person or via facetime/skype. This is where we find out if we are a good fit. In-person training, skype/facetime training, or simply online programming. We can choose from either of these options.

The second step is program design, based on the client's needs and goals. No stone is left unturned. Fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle factors are looked at.

The third step is implementation and facilitation of workouts. Let's get after it!

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching in college, working with High School wrestlers. After graduation, I made personal training my profession. Problem-solving, solution creation, and working one on one with my clients gives me the most pleasure. Your success is my focus.

What types of students have you worked with?

Youth Athletes to Seniors. The full spectrum. The common link is a willingness to learn and a strong spirit to guide them on their health and wellness journey.

My expertise lies in two areas. Clients seeking lifestyle solutions, balancing career and family lives benefit greatly from fitness coaching. Time is valuable, by having me in your corner we make sure none of it is wasted. Secondly, I am passionate about and effective at coaching endurance sports. I love marathon and ultramarathon running. Distance running has changed my life in profound ways and I know it can have the same effect for you! 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I have three clients that have been training with me for quite some time that have both signed up for their first triathlon. I'm thrilled to see them seek out challenges and dedicate themselves to achieving the goals they've set. I'm proud of them!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Schedule a consultation and ask a lot of questions. The direction of the conversation should be about YOU, not them. Don't fuss over certifications. If the trainer has the image and passion for his/her respected lifestyle that you respect and admire, then you could be a good match. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

How much can I sustainably invest in the health and wellness? How much coaching and individual instruction do I need to be successful? How successful have I been without a coach/trainer in my corner?
