Jeremy is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach (CSCS) with over a decade of experience helping kids and adults build strength, overcome injury and be more athletic. It’s a fact, the more fun we have the easier it is to work hard…AT ANY AGE! If you know an exercise is prescribed to serve a specific purpose, it’s easier to give more effort. Jeremy finds the balance between education and fun to build intrinsic motivation so you want to work harder, not because you have to. If you haven’t met him, Jeremy looks like Tigger from Winnie the Pooh because of the way he bounces around the training room.
In 2009, he graduated from Westfield State College with a B.S. in Movement Science and a concentration in Health and Fitness. In 2018 he became Level 1 Titleist Performance Institute Certified (TPI) to help golfers reduce pain and add distance to their game. He is currently pursuing his Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification to help people that have struggled with their diet build sustainable results.
Sports are fun and training should be too! Just because you don’t play on a team doesn’t mean you are not an athlete! The “everyday athletes” are working professionals, moms, dads, grandparents, weekend warriors and so-on that want to stay healthy to live their lives to the fullest. The smarter you train in the gym, the more capable and confident you will be when taking on life’s demands!
Growing up a two-sport athlete, he understands the demands sports can have on an athlete as well as their family. In high school he suffered a severe football injury that ended his season and put his spring sport season at risk. The rehabilitation process failed to prepare him for the demands his body would be facing which lead to another injury. Years later after understanding the rehabilitation process he identified the gaps in the system and created programs to help keep others from falling in!
This sparked his passion to help competitive athletes and “everyday-athletes” reduce their risk of injury, build confidence and unlock their potential. He has achieved this through building smarter training programs that fit each individual’s lifestyle and goals in a fun, educational environment.
His specialties include: golf fitness, youth athletic development, team training, Olympic lifting, return to play (closing the gap for athletes between physical therapy and getting back on the field), lifestyle/habit coaching for long-term change, personal training, small group training, and large group training.
