What makes a great coach? A great coach in my opinion is not only someone who knows the data and information that is needed to achieve optimal results but is also someone who you can confide in and trust. This is the reason that I am very picky when it comes to trusting people and leaders. We are shown through the media that many people in this world try to BS their way through their lives when they do not know something and deceiving their clients and followers in the process. John has shown the exact opposite of this by researching the information and data, citing his sources and explaining them to his clients. It is a no BS approach that he has developed using many of the greatest bodybuilders' and power-lifters' methods. This is the reason that I have worked with John since May of 2012 and over this time John has become a great friend to me and through his help I was able to achieve many of the goals that I have set to achieve in my life in bodybuilding and power-lifting. Because of the experience that I have had as a team SL member I have been able to become a more humbled athlete with a great work ethic. This work ethic has not only allowed me to exceed in bodybuilding and power-lifting but also in college and achieving balance in my family life. This is the reason that I have recommended this man to many when looking for a coach, including my own girlfriend and brother who are currently working with him. Working with John has shown me that I can achieve anything through hard work and determination. This is the reason that I recommend him to anyone who is looking to better not only their physiques but themselves. It is never easy to succeed in life but by working with people like him it is made possible.See MoreRead Less"

I started working with John a little over two months ago, but have known him for a while. When I asked to join team Strength is Life, he didn't hesitate for a second in beginning to give me goals to look forward to. As I am coming to the end of my second program he has designed for me, he has taught me so much. I believe the most important things he has coached me through are discovering my strength and findings a confidence in myself I have never had before. Whenever I am having a problem, he helps me right away. I've had several coaches growing up, but none ever like John. He cares about the success of everyone on the team. I have seen him help many people like me, come up with a goal and give it all they've got to be the best. He has a very extensive understanding about what it takes for healthy fitness results. John always has research that backs up what he tells his clients. This shows that he cares about his clients' health and needs before trying anything that could risk them getting hurt. Overall, John is the best coach I have ever had. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for an strength training coach.See MoreRead Less"

I met John in a local gym (naturally) after noticing and expressing my great impression of his dedication and hard work regarding his fitness goals. John stood out like a sore thumb with his intense concentration and commitment to each and every repetition of an exercise. Please keep in mind that John's value does not stop here.

As soon as we shook hands, I immediately felt a sense of respect from him, as well as a genuine appreciate for my feedback. John reciprocated by sharing some of his extraordinary knowledge and was happy to give me some tips. From that point forward, he quickly became a person several fellow gym members trusted... not just for fitness advice, but true support.

One thing I strive for in life is to follow my passion and truly care about what I do... as one who does this will be the best he or she can be. John is a prime example of this type of individual... he isn't just GOOD at what he does- he has a true passion for it. THAT puts him miles ahead of the competition right out of the gate!

John isn't "just" an amazing coach, he is a very caring human being. He's someone I know I can be honest with, and that's a very important in a coach. He is someone you can trust with all of your lowest points and your failings, and someone you trust with your success as well.

I've had a lot of personal set backs and so I'm not quite where I want to be, but John has supported me through the journey and is helping me get back on my feet. I started my fitness journey 4 years ago, and I'm so happy to have met John when I did over this past year because to push through that last wall and become successful, I need him in my corner.

You wont be let down with John as your coach, I would (and have) recommend him to anyone. He's someone I'm proud to call my coach and my friend.

John is a total student of his craft and has taken a passion he's had for years and paid it forward into helping others achieve their dreams. I've known John for more than 5 years and had the pleasure of work shopping ideas from all over the health and fitness spectrum and beyond. As a sports focused chiropractor and lecturer to the chiropractic profession, I wish I had people like John in my seminars who not only accept new ideas, but contribute many of his own to improve the overrall experience. He is constantly adding to the relationship and follow through on what he says he'll do. Intelligent, determined, successful and loaded with integrity: rare traits for any one person to have without calling attention to himself at all times which is viral in this industry.See MoreRead Less"

John always makes time to check in and make sure you are doing great, he has been providing me with information that will also help one grow and understand as you move forward. I would recommend him to any one, and everyone. Proud to call him my coach!See MoreRead Less"
