When I first met Jake, I had absolutely no sports background. In 3 months, I went from feeling faintish running from one lamp post to another, to now having completed 2 Spartan sprint races (5km), a 14km Urbanathalon race, and a Spartan Super race (15km).
Yes, one’s determination and perseverance are essential, but without proper guidance, the road to my accomplishments would not be as smooth. Jake pushes you hard but is able to judge and understand your strengths and weaknesses and tune the program accordingly to bring out the full potential in you. The training that Jake provides is always well thought out, smoothly executed, effective and spot on. Not only is he detailed, but he also explains them patiently, and tests our knowledge to make sure we understand the principles behind them and how to remedy any problems we face. I always look forward to his workouts simply because I know that I’m gonna have fun, be well looked after, & gain strength at the same time!
