John of Fitness and Coaching
My name is John,
This is my "Why", "You".
I have a passion for helping people achieve their goals and impacting their lives
because of a medical condition called "Arachnoid Cyst Syndrome"that I was born with which affected the nerves on the left side of my body (It is a blessing in so many ways) that has forever changed my life in a powerful way. My desire is to coach you to a life changing transformation physically,emotionally, mentally, and spiritually meeting where you are now and taking you on your transformational journey to where you want to be the best genuine, authentic self you desire to be.
I wasn't supposed to survive past the age of 5 due to my condition. As I got older, I realized that this operation that saved my life, gave me the opportunity to become more than a survivor. It created the motivation to thrive. I used sports as a motivator to show people that I didn't have a handicap or mental disability. I was perceived as handicapped because of that nerve damage to the left side of my body from the operation. Whatever sport I was introduced to, I worked hard to attain a level of proficiency that allowed me to compete at a high level. This work ethic allowed me to develop me into the person I am now and pass on the possibilities that anyone can overcome their challenges when they're willing to work at it.
I have been in the involved in the health and wellness industry since 1991 having had the blessing of different opportunities working in physical therapy, sport coaching, education, strength & conditioning coaching, personal training, and professional coaching (life and health coaching). I utilize these experiences to coach you to achieving your goals successfully through ownership and accountability for you and myself as I meet you where you are now and where you want to go through a belief of what you can be instead of what is. You'll receive fun, challenging programs that progress you towards your desired results. I look forward to guiding you and being beside you on your journey to being the best genuinely authentic you, you desire to be.
As was taught to me by my Mother, a teacher, and my Dad, a naval captain WWII,
" The road to success is always under construction" and "The secret to success is consistency of purpose".
Anything worthwhile is always uphill. Are you ready to climb that mountain and experience your mountain top?
Are you ready for a new beginning, a transformation into the you, you truly desire to be? I'm here to make sure you get there.
I'm a man of faith and these are my foundational scriptures that drive my passion to meet you where you are and take you through your transformation to be who you desire to be.
Psalm 139:14 You are beautifully and wonderfully made. You, yes you, have a purpose in this universe and no one can make you and your purpose feel inferior without your consent. Starting with yourself no matter your age.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you,which you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20 For you were bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.
Your attitude of gratitude trainer,
