Jayson has been a trainer in New York City for over 15 years. After playing college basketball at Division II Bloomsburg University, he then started boxing in Philadelphia. His quest to be an actor moved him to NYC where he got involved in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) at Tiger Schullman’s. While pursuing and attaining a Black Belt, he ran 5 marathons including the prestigious Boston and New York City and holds a best time of 3:01 at the Marine Corps Marathon. He enjoyed acting, but he soon learned that he had within him the ability to change people’s lives in a different, more impactful way. His love of fitness and athletics, mixed with a passionate desire to help people reach their health goals, led him towards a career in personal training. He feels truly blessed to have found a life passion that allows him to make people better every single day. Being done with MMA and marathons, he now loves competing in CrossFit and occasional Triathlons.
He holds certifications as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), Certified Functional Strength Coach (CFSC), Functional Range Conditioning (FRC), and Russian Kettlebell Certified (RKC). He is pursuing Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) certification and is well versed in Postural Restoration Institute (PRI).

Inspire others through mastering myself.
Being a trainer/coach to me is a cherished responsibility. I have been blessed with the opportunity to move and shape people’s lives. It is not a responsibility I take lightly. My clients trust me with shaping their lives; therefore I enthusiastically make it my obligation to ensure I keep striving for my life path to be as mentally, physically, and emotionally strong as possible. Thereby setting a bar for others to aspire to.
Finding and using your calling to strengthen and serve others is a true blessing.
What gets me excited and impassioned is to witness someone truly gifted in their craft or work to the point they are able “move” others. It takes a lot to move someone emotionally, physically, or spiritually. People can detect frauds pretty quickly. If you are able to find a vocation that you feel is truly your calling, it is a blessing and an honor to serve others. And if you’re able to do it, especially many people, it’s beautiful
