Jakob has been working with our son on his speed and agility for soccer - and the results have been very impressive. My husband and I highly recommend Jakob to work with your child to improve their athletic performance.

I think I was one of Jake's first clients when he started at Push. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have lost a significant amount of weight and able to do things again that I haven't been able to do since I was in my 20's.

Fitness and sports have always been a passion of mine. Playing three varsity sports at Columbia High School in Albany, New York I transitioned to SUNY Fredonia where I captained the Men’s Soccer team and played over 70 games. SUNY Fredonia is where I was formally introduced to what true fitness really is. Majoring in Exercise Science and carrying a minor in coaching I was able to learn about the human body and the systems within it. It was at this point I became vigorously curious about how one could manipulate their own body in countless ways in order to achieve a myriad of results.

Since starting my personal training career, I have found boundless joy in helping people achieve their goals. Whether working with young athletes hoping to improve their performance within their sport, or adults looking to improve their overall health, I find great satisfaction in seeing the results that come from working within this field. I believe that everyone is capable of anything they set their mind to, whatever their circumstances. My goal as a personal trainer at Push Fitness is to help you achieve your health goals, as well as making the gym something you can look forward to day in and day out. Allow me to partake in your health adventure with you and guide you on your way to the body and lifestyle you want and deserve!
