To be successful in all things fitness, working hard isn’t enough - you also need to work smart. That’s why Jared began working with a trainer when he was 14 years old. Initially, Jared’s goal was sport specific. He wanted to be become stronger and more agile on the ice. After a few months of learning through his trainer, Jared found his passion for fitness and began sharing his knowledge with others. He dropped hockey and began to focus all of his time on competing in CrossFit and Powerlifting (in which he holds multiple national records).
An injury has sidelined Jared from competing for a few years, but he’s since found satisfaction in helping other’s reach their goals. Battling injuries and losing motivation at times were instrumental in teaching Jared how to better understand clients and their own obstacles. Through his constant pursuit of educating / motivating others, and a little bit of luck, he’s had the pleasure of training some elite level athletes - a first round draft pick to the National Lacrosse League and ECAA Rookie of The Year, an olympic level swimmer, and a university level hockey player. In addition, he’s also trained complete beginners. Those who’ve worked with Jared, know his work doesn’t end once the training session is over. He constantly sends clients links to educational/motivational articles and frequently checks in with them outside of the gym.
PS. Jared is big on having the right workout / life balance. He doesn’t expect you to bring your meals in a tupperware container to a restaurant or abstain from having a few drinks on the weekend. He likes to have fun outside of the gym too! For proof, check out his instagram @squatalot.
