Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions

Q: I’m interested in home training. What kind of equipment do I need?
A: I suggest you have at the minimum: Adjustable dumbbells, barbell, adjustable bench with leg attachment. The more stuff, the better. Even if you have no equipment my trainers can bring a swiss ball, TRX, dumbbells and elastic bands with them if needed. You can contact me for info on how to outfit your home gym.

Q: Are your trainers qualified?
A: I require that a trainer has at least 10 years of personal training experience before I will even consider them to join my team. In addition, they are required to receive additional training with me to insure that the client receives the High Performance program. Most of my trainers have in excess of 15 years experience as well as competitive athletic backgrounds.

Q: What is the nature of your diet? Do you use intermittent fasting or Keto or other popular diet schemes?
A: My diet uses small meals 5-6 times per day in order to stimulate your metabolism to optimize lean tissue and minimize fatty tissue. The exact composition of the diet depends on your metabolism and body type. My diet is unique and does not fall into any fad diet plan. As every person is different, every diet is different. Your individual diet will specific amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats for your body and goals.

Q: Will I lose weight just by doing the workouts?
A: Nope. To lose fat, your body must be put under considerable duress: the diet enables your body to lose fat, the exercise actually burns it. Without following my diet, your body cannot burn significant amounts of fat.

Q: Do I need to join the gym where you train?
A : Yes. To train with me, you will need a membership at my base gym. You can pay by the day, but it is not cost-effective. Our other team trainers also have base gyms and studios, some of which don’t require a membership or day fee.

Q: How much is the gym membership?
A: The membership depends on location and the length of membership you wish to choose: At the gym I use in Brentwood, a monthly membership for my clients is $30 initiation and $69 per month. The good news is, the gym costs are insignificant in comparison to personal training fees. Gym rates at other gyms with my other trainers are different (mostly lower), some have no fee for the client.

In-home training is available in all nearby areas to base locations.

Q: I’m doing a starter program (2-4 sessions). Do I need a membership?
A: No. The gym fee for a day is $22.

Q: I saw an ad at the grocery store for personal training sessions for $20 – Why shouldn’t I just sign up for these?
A: Because you’ll get a $20 trainer. You wouldn’t want a $20 attorney or doctor, would you? Quality costs more, but it’s worth it.

Q: Why not just sign up for training at my current gym? They have trainers there…
A: Many people that come to me have already gone that route. Most other trainers are only selling workouts or just company. Workouts alone do not create results. And yes, most other trainer’s workouts are not effective. Now, if you have gotten to this point on my website and don’t see the difference between them and me, go back and explore it fully. I refer you to my before and after photos, testimonials sections and feel free to look me up on review sites like google maps and yelp.

Now, back to the trainer question. Let’s talk about large chain gyms like Equinox, 24 hour fitness, Bally’s etc.: These gyms only allow trainers that work for them to practice on their floor. That means you purchase the sessions from the gym, the gym pays the trainer. Regardless of how much you pay the gym for the sessions, the trainers on average make about $20-$30 per session depending on the company and the trainer’s experience. Thus, you are getting the attention of a $20-$30 trainer. The gym keeps the rest of the fee. See above.

By the way, some of these outfits are selling you 30 minute sessions and acting like it’s a real training session. See below.

Q: I keep seeing ads for 30 minute training sessions 3 times per week – Why shouldn’t I just sign up for these?
A: That’s simply not enough time or work to change a body or create significant fat loss. If you do, you’ll be calling me later anyway. Once again, workouts alone will not change your body. You need diet, resistance training, and cardiovascular training. Anyone who makes it sound easy is out to take your money and doesn’t care whether you get results.

Q: I saw a website that says I can train for 20 or 30 minutes once a week and get in great shape – What’s your opinion on that?
A: It is said, “If it sounds too be good to true, it probably isn’t.” Let me ask you; do you really believe you can get in shape by working out once per week? It’s downright silly.

Q: What about the infomercials that say “Eat anything you want and still lose weight”?
A: Lies designed to take the money of the naive. Nothing more.

Q: I’m planning on signing up with my spouse/fiance/partner/friend. Is there a discount for that?
A: Yes. We have a twofer deal or you can split a large package between you two. I’ll explain the details in a conversation.

I live in Chicago so I used Jason's online personal training. It was a great experience especially for the price. He would monitor my workouts each week and let me know if I should be able to go heavier on an exercise based on everything else I was doing. He'd also review my recorded diet and tell me where to tweak things. He was also good about reminding me to update my weight and progress pics, and he'd adjust the workouts or diet based on that. He was honest about how much weight/muscle I should expect to gain and didn't try to make huge promises just to get business.

I have wanted to work out and get into the habit of going to the gym for a long time now. I found Jason on google and he connected me with Jerry. Jerry trains me and I work with Jason on my diet to make sure I am exercising and getting all the foods/supplements I need for my body. It's the best thing I've done!!!!!! Now I know how to properly use the equipment and I will be able to go to the gym on my own. My body has been changing slowly. I lost a little weight, but my body is just turning the fat into muscle at this point. Which is completely fine. My weight is not a problem for me, but my muscle composition is so much better now. My waist is thinner and my arms are more toned. I used to be uncomfortable wearing sleeveless clothing and now I am able to dress as I like without feeling insecure. I am happy w the progress I've made so far. This is exactly what I needed to get started on my fitness journey. If you have always wanted to get fit and become comfortable with working out, this is the best way to get started. I am very happy so far. I'm not where I want to be in terms of how I look, but I know I can get there now that I have trained with Jason and Jerry. Jerry is an amazing trainer to work with and he makes everything so easy.
