“One of the Best Decisions I’ve Made!”

“My family (re)joined the J primarily so that we would have a place to work out. My doctor advised me to get healthy and lose 50 pounds. Bryce has taken my workouts to a whole new level. Bryce’s workouts have been more intense, and I find myself working out harder and doing more during our sessions. Bryce has a way that pushes me, makes the workouts fun and picks me up on down days. He has provided tips to control my eating habits, which has aided in me becoming a healthier person. I am now fully into exercising and eating better, and I have Bryce to thank for that.” – Steve B., J Member

“Weight Loss and Strength Gain!”

“I feel like a new person! After retiring from my full-time job, I decided to join the J and get active! In six months, I’ve lost weight, but even better is that I feel great! I don’t worry now about being able to keep up with my one-year-old grandson. I can carry him around and play on the floor with him as much as I want! I feel that by losing weight and gaining energy, I’m actually finding the real me. My workout time is helping me in every way: physically, mentally and even spirtually. And, I love that everyone here is a cheerleader for all of us. Thanks so much for helping me find a better me!” Patrice K., J Member

“Back from Injury Stronger than Before!”

“I began training with Val after sustaining an injury. I have been a runner for many years and was doing a high intensity boot camp three times a week. Despite all the exercise, I was not getting stronger and had chronic injuries. I was reluctant to start with a trainer due to the cost and the fear that it would be awkward or boring. Val’s demeanor instantly put me at ease. She is friendly and very approachable. The workouts are inventive and balanced. They are hard, but I am rarely sore. It truly has been the best investment I have made in my health. I have made remarkable progress in terms of strength and posture. Val’s emphasis on form has made a world of difference. I went from being unable to do a pushup to doing 20 in a row without resting. I was able to do a pull up for the first time in my life! I would highly recommend training with Val.” Jennifer D., J Member
