More Success stories

Training with Jared is amazing. Every session he motivates me, challenges me and pushes me harder, helping me surpass my fitness goals. Each workout is different as he varies my exercises, tailoring sessions to meet my required intensity levels. The results have not only met but exceeded my expectations, having significantly increased my strength and endurance levels, losing 20lbs and 10% body fat. In addition, Jared has been instrumental in me pursuing a career in policing and successfully completing the Physical Readiness Evaluation for Police (PREP). He is upbeat and supportive and his education and expertise are immediately apparent. Overall, Jared is a phenomenal trainer and a wonderful person, simply the best!

First of all, there are a number of qualities that I think a personal trainer needs in order to be successful at what they do. Being a great trainer is more than knowledge and know-how. Organization is a very important quality to have. Jared comes to each session fully prepared to make the most of our hour together. He knows weeks in advance what we’re working towards. He’s extremely organized and I appreciate that. A good personal trainer should be intuitive and thoughtful. Jared is not only polite and thoughtful, but also intuitive when it comes to my needs, often noticing something long before I do. He’s a good listener, too, which is important. And he pays attention to the little things and is very good at working with both my weaknesses and strengths. I can only imagine that this is difficult, given that each and every client will have unique strengths and weaknesses. I’m auditory-challenged, and Jared has learned that I need to be physically shown how to do something before I get it. Finally, Jared is really, really knowledgeable and passionate about what he does.  I have worked with a trainer in the past and her knowledge was very limited. I knew I wanted to work with someone who would not only get me started on a strong and healthy path, but also someone who would be able to keep me challenged as time went on. I am totally confident in Jared’s ability to do this. Honestly, I can’t say enough about how great my personal training experience has been to this point. It is my hope that one day I’ll be able to use what I’ve learned to this point and help someone the way that Jared has helped me.

I started working with Jared in February of 2015. My first appointment with him was set, but the day before brought a devastating, life-changing family event so I had to cancel. Jared was very gracious and understanding, a great first impression. I struggled with continuing with my plan for personal training, but decided to carry on. It's been one of the best decisions I could have made. I was nervous to be weighed and measured...who isn't... but again, Jared was very gracious and extremely professional. We talked about fitness goals, and what I wanted I wanted to accomplish in my time with him and created a plan together. It wasn't just him coming up with something, it involved looking at my health, well-being and goals and finding something that worked for me. Having twice-weekly appointments during a very difficult time was so beneficial. Sometimes just knowing I had made that commitment, and that Jared was as anxious for me to succeed as I was kept me going when I would not have bothered. I'd previously done weight-lifting, but had had some significant health issues and this was the first time getting back to it after a long hiatus. During our training sessions, Jared focused on making sure that my form was correct (he had his work cut out for him) before adding any serious weight. He was always very encouraging and challenged me to keep going, push harder and not quit. I'm now back at the weight that I was lifting before my illness. I feel strong again. My relationship with food has changed for the better. I'm excited about being fit and healthy and challenging myself to do things that I didn't think I would or could do before. I feel more comfortable in my own skin than I have in a long time. I know that this is because of the work that I've done with Jared - this guy really knows his stuff! I can not speak highly enough about the positive impact he has had in my time with him and would absolutely recommend training with him.

Jared has shown me a world that I truly believe I never would have experienced if it wasn’t for him.  He has assisted me with nutrition, fitness and finding an overall wellness in my life.  From my very first conversation with Jared, he gained my respect – and that is not an easy thing to do!  Jared is knowledgeable, has an incredible understanding of the body and how it moves, and his ability to work WITH his clients is nothing less than amazing – but most of all he cares.  He continuously plans our sessions and changes them up on a regular basis which keeps me from getting bored.  He incorporates exercises that play to my strengths AND my weaknesses but the overall balance is fantastic.   Jared has a way of keeping me motivated through the good times and the bad!  The whole concept of exercise is still new to me (I have been working out for 1.5 yrs) and Jared has found a way to help me understand the benefits and now I even enjoy it – but don’t tell him that!!  Jared I cannot thank you enough for all you have taught me, and helped me overcome during our time together.

Jared has been into healthy living ever since I can remember, if there's something you can say about the guy, its that he practices what he preaches, so you can be sure that he talks with experience. It's his integrity that truly impresses me, the guy deserves everything he works for in life, and work hard he does. If you want to be inspired while working out and living healthy, you would be right to trust in a program designed for you by Jared. You'll be feeling better about yourself in no time, and that's what it's all about.

Thanks Jared! For the lifetime of inspiration.

I've been training with Jared for a number of months and find him to be very professional, mindful of form which is extremely important, and highly motivational. He was recommended to me by a friend who had trained with him in Belgium. Prior to training with Jared I was driving into North Bay 3x a week for training, which took a big bite out of my schedule. Now I can train with Jared and go home to a healthy meal instead of grabbing fast food after my workout because it is so late (I know, I know...) It's great to have a professional personal trainer so close by to serve Powassan and surrounding areas.
