Glen K. (Testimonial)
When I started working out in the middle of June this year with my wife, we asked for separate trainers because we thought it would be more beneficial to us as individuals. I must say that this decision was probably one of the most important decisions that we made regarding out health. If we would have taken the same trainer, Jon would not have come into my life.
From the beginning I knew that Jon was on my side, and that his only concern while working with me was me. Jon has a wonderful sense of humor, and we can rib each other, knowing that the other won't get offended. Jon has a knack for getting me to try things that I never believed I would like to do, or for that matter could do. He always has a smile on his face, and that affects the workout. No matter what kind of a day I have had, by the end of our workout, we are laughing together. Jon makes the workouts enjoyable; he never lets anything get to be routine; he is constantly improving the exercises and making them more challenging. If, for instance, a piece of equipment that we were planning on us is occupied, he can immediately come up with a different exercise to do instead.
Jon continually impresses me with his professionalism and his dedication. Although Jon has training and formal College education in his craft, it is his passion that shines through. Jon’s attitude and caring nature towards his clients is very apparent. For example, a while ago I put my back out while I was working at home. When I told Jon about my back problems he immediately researched ways to ease the pain and prevent it from happening again. He phoned me at home to see how I was doing and offered to help in any way that he could. During one of our training sessions he showed me various exercises that would help my back pain. This is one example among many of a trainer who goes above and beyond the call of duty. For this reason and many others I can truly say that this is not just a job for Jon it is a passion. He has truly found his calling.
Most important, it is reassuring to me to have a trainer who understands my struggle with my weight. Jon has shared with me that he was once overweight as well. It is reassuring and comforting to know that he truly understands my frustrations and concerns, and can help me through the rough spots. He sees me not as an obese person, but someone who is in trouble, and needs his help to achieve a certain goal. Jon will help me reach my end goal, and I credit him with the fact that I have accomplished so much already.
Lastly, I would personally like to thank Jon for making me believe in myself. Jon has gone from being only my Personal Trainer to being my friend. We can talk about any issues of concerns that I may be having and I know that he will not betray my confidence. It is apparent to me that both professionally and personally Jon is a person of great character.
