Personal Trainer and Performance Coach
Jesse has been in the fitness industry professionally for 3.5 years working with larger gyms, while also fine tuning his abilities to work with a wide variety of clientele. In that same time navigating the COVID world, he was able to keep the people he was working with on track by any means necessary. If that meant Zoom, he did it. If it meant driving to their house, he did it. Jesse believes that fitness should be a lifelong pursuit and tries to instill this belief into his clients with the hope they will see the value that it can provide.
“I am a firm believer that the relationship and bond that people have with their trainer/coach is one that is a give and take. It is the coaches’ job to give his clients the tools and skills necessary to turn this into their own lifestyle. It is the job of the client to put their best effort forward and to have an open mind to how the process can change. It’s a tad cliché but it speaks true here, you get out of this experience whatever you put in. If you work hard, do what is best for you more often than you don’t, results will come.”
