Personal Training & Boot Camp

Amy's Success Story

“We all can choose how we get older. It makes me sad when I see my mom, who is in her 70’s and she is weak, frail, in a wheelchair from arthritis and osteoporosis. I wish she knew what I know now, that you can postpone and maybe even prevent many conditions of old age. I also see many older people that I admire, some that are active hiking, biking, swimming, weight training and working out at the gym. I decided that I didn’t want to live the rest of my life getting weaker as I got older. I have done weight training many years of my life, starting in college, a requirement to be strong in the sport I received a scholarship for. I knew the importance of weight training so I continued off and on in my 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, but for the most part I worked out on my own following the “program” offered by the gym I joined. Last year I decided to hire a trainer and not only did I get stronger, leaner, and lowered my body fat; but I noticed improvement in my energy, balance, and agility.

I stopped training for about 4 months and worked out on my own, and found that I wasn’t continuing to improve. About a month ago, I started Boot Camp with Jon, it’s amazing that in that short time, I feel stronger, I have more energy, and my clothes are fitting better. It seems like I have gone up a whole other level in conditioning. I have been so impressed with Jon and his knowledge about training, conditioning and nutrition; that I decided to start individual training sessions in addition to Boot Camp. I know I will get results working with Jon; I would see him working with his other clients and saw the results they were getting. With Jon’s extensive experience, you can see that he is very good at what he does, and that he cares about his clients and knows how to get them to reach their goals. My goal is to be hiking, biking, traveling, and snorkeling when I get to be my mom’s age. So for now, I’m working on getting stronger, healthier and putting in the time and financial commitment. I can’t think of a better reason to spend money and time on, but on my health and future. So, we all can choose how we get older, and I’m planning to be kicking and screaming the whole way there.”
