Jerry has always been our ‘Master Trainer’. We are so proud of him for earning this official designation and would love to hear the story of how Jerry has impacted your career and life!

“Jerry has been an incredible influence on our son Michael. He inspired him not only to become a better athlete but a better, healthier person overall. It’s immediately clear to anyone who meets him that Jerry takes his craft to a new level beyond traditional “trainers” and has deeply educated himself on the holistic balance involved in developing an athlete. He understands the link between nutrition, exercise, rest and the less obvious mental and physical aspects of an athlete’s health and is always willing and able to share that knowledge with his clients. I applaud his continuing desire to improve his impact through education. Congratulations Jerry, and thank you for all you do for so many!”
