We are constantly destroying everything around us, the environment, other creatures and ourselves.

Our goal as fitness professionals, not to work just on the appearance of our clients but educate them about the importance of building up healthy habits. It should not be a quick fix diet for some event, but the lifelong habit. My favorite workouts are with body weight. Everything is done in the movement.

JD SCOTT- CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER & SELF DEFENSE INSTRUCTOR
Fitness has always played a vital role in my life, from playing sports at an early age through college to training elite warriors for combat operations. During my career in the military, working out was less about gaining a competitive edge but more of enhancing my fitness for ever-changing conditions. I applied the Special Operations’ motto of “Anytime, Anyplace” to my workout regimen. My diverse experiences have enabled me to design programs from robust facilities to more austere locations that fit into any daily schedule. I possess a wide array of techniques that will ensure we find the right program to transform you into the “you” that you want to be. Together we will establish your goals and determine which fitness routine will be the best fit. If you are looking to improve your flexibility and balance, we can incorporate some yoga into your program. Despite my gentler side, if you need some tough love to remain motivated we can set out on a training mission where failure is NOT an option. In addition, I can help you enhance your personal protection capabilities through self-defense training. I also understand when fitness goals are sidetracked. Personally I have rehabilitated from several sports as well as combat related injuries in addition to helping numerous clients regain their ability to pursue and achieve their fitness goals. I am confident that we will achieve success together.
