In May of 2008, the ladies at Grass Iron training were recommended to me. They were unable to accept new clients at that time, but they told me that John could meet with me. I was a bit hesitant. I had wanted particularly to work with a female who could help me with diet issues including hormonal challenges.
I'm happy to say that my hesitation was unfounded. My training partner and I met with John, and I was immediately impressed with his knowledge and advice. While he didn't tell me what I wanted to hear ("of course you can run 5 days a week, take spin classes twice a week, lose fat and build muscle all at the same time!"), he did work with me extensively to prioritize those goals and alter my schedule to better achieve them.
That is what I love most about training with John. He takes into account all my activities and works with me to make smarter training decisions. He never forces his own ideas of what my goals should be and he is an amazing resource of information. No dieting, training, or supplement question of mine has ever gone unanswered and every answer is thorough and helpful. He has a very gentle way about him, and amazingly, I feel like he truly understands and can relate to the things I say and ask.
I was skeptical in the beginning, but over the last 6 months, I have come to trust John's knowledge and expertise implicitly. I see a change in my goals coming up and I intend to discuss them with John and then completely put myself into his hands as I know he will help me achieve them.
My training partner and I like to have a good deal of fun while training. John puts up with our antics with grace, style, humor, and refuses to let us derail his efforts. Imagine what he could do if we were more focused! If John can train us, he can train anyone!!!*
