Testimonials

I met with Jimmy and I knew immediately after our first couple of sessions that this was going to put me in the right direction towards the healthy life that I wanted.  Having Jimmy challenge and encourage me every session I quickly became a stronger person.  Jimmy pushed me harder than I could ever push myself and kept me motivated at the same time.  Before I knew it I had lost 40 lbs and had gained a new confidence that I had never had.  Jimmy has given me the tools and knowledge I needed to change my lifestyle.  I now have more energy and confidence and actually look forward to exercising and eating healthy. – Kari F.

Before I started working with Jimmy, I didn’t understand how fitness and nutrition worked together. Keeping a food and exercise journal are habits that have been critical to my success.  In reviewing the journal, it is obvious the amount of variety and new exercises that Jimmy has taught me. I think that is the real strength of Jimmy – he keeps exercise new and entertaining. He is a great teacher because he really works to understand your personality and what techniques will make the client most successful. Jimmy is extremely knowledgeable and shares that expertise. He is motivating without being a drill sergeant.  Before I started working with Jimmy, I was a couch potato relegated to memories of athletic achievements, rather than continuing to participate. Today, I work out 6 times a week and have participated in two triathlons. I don’t think I realized how unhappy I was before I started this journey. My confidence and self-esteem have surged. My personal relationships have improved and flourished. I am better at my job. I wake up every morning happy and ready to take on the day, rather than just to exist in it. It may sound cliché, but working with Jimmy has changed my life.  – Elizabeth V.

You need to know that until I joined Lifestyle Family Fitness, I had never been to a gym, and never worked out. I don’t have an athletic bone in my body, and since I was a kid, stocky enough to have to wear what were then called “husky” sizes, I’ve always been somewhat ashamed of my physique. With this background, no one is more surprised than I am that I have stuck with my membership and with training. I have to say, I owe that to Jimmy, for he has coached and encouraged me – and yes, pushed me – in ways that never make me feel like a klutz. My initial goal was to trim down and to tone muscles, not so much for looks, but to improve my general stamina and wellbeing. I have dropped 15 pounds, and I feel more fit now at age 61 than I have at any other time in my life. – Malcolm C.

Jimmy has challenged me in many ways, both with my fitness and my eating habits.  I am now more aware of what I am buying at the grocery store and consuming while I eat.  With Jimmy’s help I have lost 15 pounds, knocked off 6% body fat.  At 32 years of age, I am in the best shape of my life, a healthier eater, and a more confident person. – Brett H.

I always looked forward to my workouts with Jimmy. He was professional, fun, experienced and pushed me when I was unmotivated. Not only did Jimmy know what exercises would produce the best results, but he also helped immensely when it came to my nutrition. The only reason I stopped working out with Jimmy was because I moved out of state. I would recommend him to any man or woman looking for an effective trainer who makes working out enjoyable. – Jen M.

Jimmy did a great job of getting to know me and what motivated me.  We talked a lot about nutrition and what I should be doing when I wasn’t working out with him.  My weight and body fat decreased and my muscle definition and endurance increased.  I lost 35lbs of fat and gained several pounds of muscle.  During my last physical with my doctor the results were outstanding!  In addition to the weight loss my doctor was most impressed with my cholesterol numbers. – Rick S.

I weighed 248lbs and wore size 40 pants.  I suffered from self-esteem problems, depression, anxiety, low energy, and didn’t like to look at myself in the mirror.  After only 5 months, I now weigh 195lbs and wear size 34 pants.  Working out and losing weight has improved my self-esteem, reduced stress levels, and anxiety.  I didn’t realize that I had the ability to do what Jimmy has shown me I can do.  I have muscle tone and definition that I didn’t think I would ever have.  Jimmy has been a huge part of my success! – Jason S.

Personal Training has changed my life.  I am the thinnest I have ever been, but more importantly I am in shape.  Jimmy is passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm he brings to every session.  His easy going, friendly personality creates a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  He makes each workout challenging, creative and most importantly fun! He motivates me to push past my perceived limits to get results.  If you are serious about changing your life for the better, Jimmy will lead you every step of the way. – Cindi S.

I think your helping me get on track was the best thing that could have happened to me in a long while!  I appreciate your concern and care of me. Thanks for all your guidance and help in trying to get me fit and healthy!  You’re the best!! – Paula G.

I have had a love-hate affair with the gym going on 20 years. I love the results of a challenging, consistent workout program but hate that there’s always someone in better shape than me. I first hired Jimmy after noticing dramatic results in one of his athlete clients and wanting some for myself. Committing to training with Jimmy is one of the best decisions I have made in my adult life. He is a true partner in the experience and working together we have shattered goals I never thought possible. I have worked down to lean and ripped and back up toward more quality mass than I’ve ever been able to sustain. No one likes to pay for training but with Jimmy it is truly a worthwhile investment in believing in yourself. I am not just a client but also a personal fan. – Brent W.

Training with Jimmy has made all the difference in the world.  He helps me focus and keeps my energy and motivation high.  I am maintaining my desired weight after having lost my goal of 15lbs.  In addition, I’ve lost a total of 7 inches.  The most dramatic change has been reducing my body fat from 29% to 18%.  My clothes fit again and I like what I see.  Most importantly I feel great! – Susan Sc.

As someone who struggles with working out, and someone who expected to relate better to a female trainer (my last one was female), I was very skeptical when, after stellar recommendations, I finally decided to try a training session with Jimmy. Within five minutes, I was won over, and I’ve remained so for every session thereafter. Jimmy strikes a fantastic balance of making you want to try harder, be better, achieve more, while also being realistic about how difficult of a journey it is! Jimmy encourages without being annoying. He’s funny without wasting your whole session chatting. And somehow he manages to tolerate your (my!) whining, keeping you on target and distracting you long enough until you realize he was right, that you actually could do it! If you want someone to show you how to work out, simply going through the motions, there are plenty of trainers out there. However, if you are looking for someone who wants to guide you through a lifestyle change and new outlook on your physical health that goes way beyond your visits to the gym, then Jimmy is the one for you. To anyone who asks or will listen, my endorsement always rings loud and clear: “Trust me, Jimmy is the best you’ll find!” – Heath H.

I am pleasantly surprised with my progress.  Most definitely a lot stronger NOW than I was say, when we met. – Brian H.

As someone who’s always disliked going to the gym—who prefers physical activities that have the side-effect of keeping you in shape while mostly just being fun—Jimmy has been able to keep things fun and challenging since he first started training me in early 2009. The difficulty level has steadily increased, and he always finds new exercises that fit my taste. Knowing other clients of his, it’s nice to see how much he caters workouts to individual clients’ needs and preferences. Highly recommended! – Jon B.

I was looking for motivation, rehabilitation, strength gains, and emotional wellness.  Jimmy has never failed to address any of my needs.  Jimmy’s attitude and expertise, his care and attention to detail, his ability to individualize, and, of course, his sense of humor, kept me coming back even when I thought I couldn’t.  I can now do 6 chin-ups, I am strong, pain free, and I feel better about my body.  – Susan Sa.

I just came from the cardiologist from my 6month check up. I weighed in 6 pounds less that last time I saw him, before starting with you. He is very pleased with my weight loss and increase in fitness – he even said I don’t need to come back for a whole year so that IS progress as he has been a task master RE getting the belly off and checking up on me.  I am wearing one size smaller waist pants now.  Just thought I would pass this on and say thanks for the help. I still have a ways to go, but it is great to be making progress.     – Lou F.

I never believed in personal training, especially since I came for an athletic background, but I noticed I wasn’t making any progress in the gym so I decided to meet with Jimmy right after my wedding.
Let me tell you, Jimmy is more than a trainer; he is a motivator, an innovator, and a person who cares about your success in and out of the gym. He is looking out for your well being all the time and that is something you don’t find in most people in this day and age. He is flexible and will make you try new things so you obtain your fitness goals. The best part is that he is always keeping in contact via email or text, it never fails. Jimmy has taken my workout experience to a whole new level.
I would recommend Jimmy to anyone looking to achieve their goals because he won’t give up on you. My only regret was not taking advantage of working with Jimmy sooner. Do yourself a favor and contact Jimmy, I highly recommend it.”  –  Nick V.
