I've always looked for different ways to train your body. There's a great variety of ways to work on your body, for example, yoga, Pilates and fitness. But none of those really satisfied me, and at a certain moment I was no longer sure of what could help me in getting physically stronger.
I met Jesse at my place of work and when I saw the amazing results with other dancers that were training with him, I figured I needed someone to give me the tools to get stronger as well. So I started training with Jesse and very quickly I started to feel an immense difference. Working with the TRX and your own body weight was the best solution for me, and best of all: it was fun!
Visualization, the focus on your breath, working from your core, and searching for your limits not only gives you a stronger physique but also makes you grow in your mind. The combination of strengthening, balancing and stretching was the exact kind of training that I was looking for. I was able to apply the work that I've done with Jesse through out my day as a dancer, and I've really enjoyed the time we’ve spent together.

Training with Jesse has transformed my body in a way that I had never imagined possible.
Jesse is a top professional. His knowledge and his love for his work will bring you to a level of fitness and strength you would not have dreamed of, all without ever feeling overworked or stressed.
Strength combined with feeling calm and secure, it was a complete workout from head to toe and inside out.
