Simply, with your help I achieved my goal of losing the winter weights that I gained!
You also patiently worked with me on building my strength, endurance and flexibility which helped improve my tennis game.
I love that my workout sessions are never the same because I get bored easily.
Best part of going through this journey with you is that you don't tell me what I shouldn't eat or drink😁I still get to maintain my lifestyle!"
I can’t even begin to tell you how much stronger I feel after only six weeks of working out under your supervision. I know you can see the progress we have made, but I want you to also know that I appreciate how you have worked with my asthma and heart condition. I could instantly tell that you really care about people and want to help them in every way that you can.
Thank you for helping me regain the strength and energy I need to once again enjoy the activities I love.
I have recently begun attending the Joint Mobility class at Giammalva with Jared as the instructor.
The class has proven very beneficial to me. I have osteoarthritis in my neck, knees and hands and a recent injury to my right knee. The joint mobility class has allowed me to extend the range of motion in my neck and knees and in particular regain significant mobility in my right knee.
Jared is knowledgeable and maintains a balance between challenging the “status quo” and pushing his students too hard. I would recommend Jared’s training to anyone who is interested in improving his/her fitness and endurance.
Training with Jared has had several positive aspects on my health. When I started training with him in 2010 he helped me to lose 20 lbs in just six months. This was epic for me as I am constantly battling with weight. Jared helped me to formulate a workout plan that included exercises that were not just going to the gym and lifting weights, but things that could keep my attention better. I get bored easily with traditional weight lifting. He also ensured the workouts focused not only on the glamour muscles, but also the smaller muscles that require development to prevent injury. Because I am no longer in the same region as Jared, but still look to him for advice on training he created a specially made video I requested he explained the function of the rotator cuff, how to properly exercise it to prevent injury, and explained that it’s a common misconception that most shoulder injuries are not the rotator cuff.
My overall experience with Jared as a trainer has been a much better experience than with any of the trainers I have tried over the years. Partly because he truly cares about the goals of those he is training and also because he is able to think outside the box with training to find things that a person would like to do rather than just lifting weights to try to get in shape as I have experienced with all of my other trainers.
I met Jared through a mutual friend and after learning of my desire to begin a fitness regimen, Jared offered to work with me one-on-one. Jared initially met with me and we discussed my goals, concerns and any physical limitations or problems I had. Jared was very knowledgeable and invested in finding the right workout for me and how to address any problem areas I had. For me, this included recommendations for some stretches during my workday in the office and taking note of some prior back problems I had.
Jared was able to provide me with a workout that was challenging, but do-able and that I was able to perform on my own. Jared checked in with me between our sessions to see how I was doing with the workout, especially initially, when I was struggling. During our sessions, Jared was supportive, but also pushed me to do better. I had a great experience working with Jared and would highly recommend him.
My short enlistment with the US Navy was the only time in my life I’ve been in better physical condition than when I’ve trained with Jared. Jared is not a “one method fits all” personal trainer. Jared’s specialty is tailoring a training regimen that fits your personal goals and physics needs. He also strives over time to have you become less dependent on him and to take personal responsibility for fitness as a part of your lifestyle. I approached Jared early last summer having formerly been a student in his martial arts class.
At this time I had embarrassingly become the heaviest I’d weighed in my lifetime. Through workouts that included warm-up, martial arts training, TacFit Commando, and cool down stretching 2-3 times a week throughout the summer and then continuing on my own into the fall I was able to lose 23 pounds and gain a healthier lifestyle. In addition, I’ve been able to use what I learned from Jared with my varsity athletes in girls’ basketball and boys’ baseball teams. I would highly recommend Jared as a personal trainer to anyone seeking to become more fit and gain a healthier lifestyle.
I have recently started taking training from Jared Evans, a professional personal trainer. Over the last couple of years I have been experiencing pain due to arthritis. As time went by I also experienced muscle loss due to inactivity.
Jared put me through some easy drills to determine where my issues were and find how to correct these issues. I now play tennis 5 times a week pain free. My decision to take lessons from a professional trainer was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Thank you for all of the help you have given and are continuing to give me. I feel better, have more energy and am already able to stand more erectly and move around with considerably less pain. I have also noticed that I don’t tire as easily and my legs feel stronger. The improvements after only a week of working out under your direction are absolutely amazing. I look forward to continuing the program you have developed and are continuing to develop for me. It’s difficult for me to describe how special it is that you recognized the weaknesses that were causing my problems and developed a program to target and hopefully eliminate those problems.
I have been dearly working with Jared Evans, I believe since the beginning of August. I can truly say that he’s everything a professional fitness coach can or could be. It showed immediately when I started working with him that he knew precisely what he was doing! I told him about how I wanted to have a good physique but no muscles. Jared got me to work as soon as possible on this!
I’m still working towards this goal, and with Jared’s help, I’m getting there much faster! I don’t only go to Jared for the sake of being fit, and getting in shape, I go there for the fun of it as well. He never has me doing the same thing every day, and every day just keeps on getting interesting!
Jared is extremely flexible and can manage your time wisely when you’re super busy, this helps me a ton! I can work on the things I need to work on and go to Jared to work out as well! Coach Jared never slouches around and always cares about your needs. He will most definitely fulfill your goal and help you reach your goal with success and achievement. I and along with others, most definitely recommend Jared Evans as your fitness instructor. You won’t be disappointed!
I have been working with Jared for a while now and have been impressed with his professionalism and attention to my physical fitness needs. He is knowledgeable and makes me comfortable in an environment I would generally avoid. I can’t express enough my thanks for the results that I have achieved... I have worked with a few trainers in the past, but must admit I have been unable to remain enthusiastic about exercising. Jared somehow keeps me motivated and encourages me to continue with the program which he has customized for me. He increases the difficulty of the exercise pushing me to further achieve my fitness goals; without forcing me to do anything beyond my physical capability. I am definitely stronger and have developed an appreciation for a good workout.
I feel as long as I follow his advice I will continue to improve both my strength & mobility. I highly recommend Jared to anyone who wants to get fit.
I started working with Jared because someone recommended him, I gave it a try and loved it. The day I meet with him I told him that I wanted to focus more on playing tennis I didn’t wanted to feel that I was getting tired while playing, keeping the foot work while moving on the court and also wanted to keep up with the other players. So, that was my main focus. Get Strong, Consistent and keep moving.I can said that I have seen a lot of improvements on that and also I have become stronger than before.
Jared is a great coach, he will work on the person’s need and if having or have had an injury he has ways for the person to exercise and get strong. I have seen how many people come to work with him and everybody have an objective and they are really nice. I love working with the group!!! You feel motivated to continue the hard work and it make you push yourself even more.
I was not sure about a personal trainer when I started two years ago. I never did that before. I played tennis, jogged, and sometimes hit weights. Did not have discipline that having trainer forced me to have. This has kept me in gym doing weights for two years now. That I like. I need to reduce my weight (not muscle), but that is ME reducing my calories and on my off days getting back to aerobic exercise (self-discipline issues). The weights have helped in my speed, I feel stronger, and I do believe my injury time is less with consistent training.
"I have been working with Jared for almost 2 years now and started with no weight lifting experience whatsoever. Through Jared's training, I am now stronger that I have ever been. Jared provides attention to detail on teaching you weight training techniques, proper form and balance of each weight lifting exercise and keeps you on the right progression pace that provides maximum effect to meet your personal goals.
Jared will also provide you a regular weekly training regimen between classes that makes it simple for you stay committed to your program. It's enjoyable working with someone who cares as much as you do on meeting your weight training goals!"
Working with Jared is very enjoyable, he is skilled, knowledgeable, thoughtful and able to give you that extra little motivation you need to go a little further than you thought you could. The positive attitude he has really helped me to get the most out of myself in each of our workouts. My progress before Jared had become somewhat stagnant and the programs he designed really changed things up and helped me to better achieve my strength goals.
When I first met Jared, I was going through health issues that were affecting my condition in life, so my best choice was to have a personal trainer who has an appropriate training plan to monitor me even though I wasn’t motivated because of inadequate previous experiences.
Since I started working with Jared, he helped me change my life for the better in a short period of time as well as achieving new goals.
My fitness progress has increased noticeably not only feeling healthier and stronger but losing weight (18 pounds so far). Jared is extremely encouraging and makes working out fun. He ensures that my technique is always correct and inspires me to reach new goals and yet he knows how much I am capable of doing. He has a good knowledge of his profession and is very attentive to what each client needs.
I really can’t think Jared enough!
"I really love working out, and I try to do it when I have the chance. I thought that if I followed a couple of routines online it would be ok, but when I started with Jared, I saw a huge impact in my body. He was very dedicated with every routine and explained perfectly how to do it. Not to mention that he has an extraordinary personality. I can't wait to schedule another month with him. Thank you for everything Jared!!"
"I want to express my gratitude and thanks for adding Fene’s fitness program to the club’s activities. As we age things start to digress physically. Last summer in late August I had an opportunity to go on a bear hunting/fishing trip for 17 days in Alaska. I had no idea how out of shape I was until I got back from the trip. We were trudging through the tundra, getting in and out of boats, small planes, trying to keep our balance in small boats in fast moving water (38 degrees), etc. When I got back from the trip I was physically beat up and recognized that I needed to do something about it. I was not in my 20’s anymore.
I had just joined Giammalva Racquet Club in October of last year and Fene had started teaching her class about that time. Since working out in her classes and a few sessions with Jared (and more time on my own in the gym) I am now back in much better condition and shape. We just returned from a trip to France where we were walking up and down miles each day, climbing countless stairs, etc. and canoeing. All with no physical stress thanks to Fene's workouts and time with Jared in the gym.
As a club member I greatly appreciate the fitness programs that you offer and especially the program that Fene teaches. Everyone should take advantage of it."
"I've been working out with Jared for the past months specifically to strengthen my knees due to a tennis injury. He has worked wonders for my overall mobility, specifically my knee. I actually went to the workout unable to straighten my leg and left that day with much greater mobility. He understands how important the I-T band is to the knee and we have worked on exercises to stretch the band which has improved my flexibility and strengthened my knees. We have also worked on upper body strengthening to encompass the "whole body" workout. I highly recommend Jared for any type of workout whether you are trying to overcome an injury or if you just want to get healthier and stronger. Booyah Jared!!!"
"I wanted to get more in shape before I went back to college and my dad suggested working with Jared, who he knew from Giammalva Racquet Club.
I only worked out with him for a couple weeks, but in that short amount of time, I could already see a big difference. He gave me a good routine to have so when I went back to college, I could still be successful working out.
He really focused on what I wanted to work on and gave me unique exercises. He was very motivating and pushed me to do my best. I had a great time working with him and look forward to doing it again."
