Hi all, and thanks for taking the time to check out my site.
My name is Dan Jamison. Exercise, particularly weightlifting has been a big part of my life since I was a teenager. I still enjoy working out as much as I did then but my motivation for keeping it up has certainly changed over the years. Way back then I was totally focused on the aesthetics. Like most young men getting big was what I was after. The lasting physiological and psychological aspects of exercise did not take over as a motivating factor until much later.
Life takes over, we get off track and at my heaviest I was 265 lbs. I know what it is like to struggle with weight, lack of energy, no motivation and the accompanying mental beat-down that those things bring on and perpetuate. It is a cycle that is extremely difficult to break out of without help. I have been through it, I broke the cycle and I want to help others do it.
Now, instead of exercise being a means to an end, exercising itself is the end. I enjoy it, I look forward to it, and I cannot imagine what life would be like without the ability to do it.
I had been training over the years but wanted to take what I had to offer to the next level. I became a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer and Weight Loss Specialist. After working at a big-box gym I decided to make a go of this on my own and here we are.
The greatest satisfaction I get as a Personal Trainer is to watch a person who never thought “they” could do it realize that “they” are doing it! I love seeing the boost in self-confidence that comes when those first changes in weight, size, strength or energy start to show. The cycle that pulls a person down is reversed, it feeds on itself and with coaching and encouragement, there is no stopping you. I love being a part of it, there is nothing like it and that is why I do this.
