A collection of client spotlights, stories and experiences of current and former BID athletes.
Before I started working with Jason I felt gyms were scary and mostly populated by fit people. I also believed the gym is boring, that exercise was something which had to hurt all the time and that you ” just get it over with”. Jason helped me learn how to do the exercises properly focusing on proper form which in turn removed the fear of the gym. He also made the gym fun and less threatening by focusing on proper form. He showed me that pain does not always equals gains and now I now enjoy taking my time in the gym.
Working with Jason I Lost over 40 lbs and added muscle mass ( which I did not plan for, but was a happy result). Went from wearing size XL (Tight) to M (Comfortable) / Size 38 (Tight) to 34 (Comfortable) waistline. Jason is the best trainer I have ever had. He made Gym fun and I know and trust him when he’s pushing me.
Honestly I was petrified of the gym, didn’t know any type of proper form and thought personal training was like a boot camp class that I was likely to die in. Now though I’m totally comfortable with the gym, the equipment and our training plan. You explain EVERYTHING which I love because I like to understand the why and how of what we are doing. You’re like a Wikipedia or google for health, food and exercise . You don’t have me do anything you don’t think I can handle. You have more faith in my poor old body than I do… but I can do it!
– I can lift more weight than I ever thought possible for my body
– I’ve lost a total of 48.6 lbs and gained a lot of lean muscle as well
– I eat healthier food options that keep me challenged and satisfied more than 80% of the time
– I drink so much more water than I used too
– I honestly love the time at the gym, I find these peaceful zenlike moments that I cherish
– I am more focused and organized than ever before in my life
– I have more energy naturally than I’ve ever had
To be “brutally honest”… I’ve given my full trust to a complete stranger who now feels like a friend/mentor. You’ve taken me a long way, shown me new ideas and helped keep me on track, encouraged, energized and guided thru the ropes of the scary gym. From douche bag moves to bro math, muscles with personality traits to some pretty amusing comparisons, you’ve shared so much insight to a world I’ve never known and now feels like a 2nd home.
You can honestly tell that this isn’t just a job for you, its a genuine passion that you have and it seems to come naturally. You’re a great teacher, motivator, guide, coach, trainer, the list goes on. You have more positive energy than I’ve ever seen!! I honestly couldn’t be happier with the recommendation to have you as my trainer. Best choice I’ve made in a long time. I would (and do) recommend you to anyone looking to improve any aspect of their physical life.
When I started working with Jason I had some reservations about the cost of training. I wanted to discontinue my blood pressure medication and not feel like I was dying when I exercise. So far I’ve dropped 30lbs (254lbs to 224lbs), went from a 44 to 38 pant size, I’m able to deadlift and squat and can now do the stairmaster from 20 minutes without collapsing which is a big accomplishment for me.
Jason has truly been inspirational and very knowledgeable in every aspect of personal training.
When I started training with Jason I was worried about doing just free-weights all the time, but we ended up with a good mix of free-weights, ab and cable work. Since beginning our training together I’ve gained core strength, muscle, lost overall weight including stomach area, learned about nutrition and how it affects training and general health, learned new exercises which I will be able to do on my own when not in the gym, and learned how to do exercises properly without pain. Overall, I am happy with the quality of our training sessions, Jason’s a great motivator.
I’ve been working with Jason for a little over a year now and the results have been amazing. Jason is passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm he brings to every session. His high value on correct form with each exercise makes for a challenging but successful workout. My balance and flexibility have improved and I’ve got great new muscles. Thank you Jason.
When we first started working together I wanted to lose weight and get strong. I was worried about how we were going to be changing my routine and lifting lower weights. We overcame this by explaining why were making changes and how it would help me get to my goals. I lost 30lbs while retaining my strength. You’re always on time, and pay attention to my form and execution, you do a great job. I have had a lot of trainers and I feel of all of them you have had the most care in my general well being and long term success.
When we first started working together I was worried that it would be too difficult to follow but you only asked me to do things i pre-agreed to. I’ve been able to feel MUCH healthier and have established a meal prep routine that im sticking to. Weight gain is happening slowly but surely.
Jason comes at you from all angles with expert knowledge on diet, supplements, techniques and motivators. When an exercise isn’t getting the desired result he modifies and keeps adjusting until the right muscles are involved. You can expect a ton of feedback and tailoring of your program with obvious attention to detail. Thanks Jason for helping keep me on track and enjoying my fitness journey.
When we first started working together I was unsure how much I would be able to improve my powerlifting weights at my age and size. You made a number of improvements to my form, you focused on developing key muscles necessary for powerlifting and you really helped me with my focus, consistency, and confidence, and adjusted my diet to fuel my muscle development.
I appreciate you taking the time to explain the whys to me in order to better understand what exactly I should feel and look for.
My experience with you has been nothing short of fantastic. I would never have tried many of the exercises nor weights that we have done. You motivated me to go further and faster than I would ever have done on my own.
You are always positive, fun to work with. You inspire and motivate. You are a true professional and make programming adjustments regularly as required to ensure continued progress. Very knowledgeable!
As an already high performing athlete and soldier, I was hesitant to see a trainer. It seemed like a lot of money to do things I already know how to do on my own. I can work hard, but you’ve really helped me work smart, avoid injury, as well as refine my sports psych and nutrition especially.
Jason has supported me no matter what I bring to the gym on any given day, tears or laughter. In the beginning I was unsure of having a male trainer, embarrassed about my lack of abilities and being overweight. Jason made feel very comfortable though, always friendly and kept me positive, always making me look at solutions to any obstacles. My experience with Jason is always good, even when things aren’t going so well, he continues to support me not just in a training capacity, but also in an infectiously positive way. He has taught me about needing consistency to achieve results and has motivated me to actually want to show up 3 times a week.
Jason is an incredibly knowledgeable and experienced coach that creates tailored programs for his clients. He is an active listener and incorporates your feedback into programming as you go along to ensure your goals and continuously considered and measured throughout. I would strongly recommend Jason to anyone looking to improve their performance and overall health, regardless of fitness level.
