I wanted to change my life around. After high school I sat down and made a list of things I wanted to accomplish, eating healthier and changing my body was one of the most important things. I knew Jereymi in high school and later found out about his work with nutrition and personal training through a friend from work. I sat down with him and told him about all the things I wanted to accomplish. He designed a meal plan that fit my goals and was easy to follow. After several weeks into the program I saw results. Increased productivity, I was never tired and my strength increased at a rapid rate. I began a 6 week weight training program at the same time I began the meal plan. My bench dips went from 29 to 52. My bodyweight dips 17 to 23. My pull ups started at 12 in a row and ended at 18. By the end of the program I was able to clean and press 150 pounds for 5 sets of 2 and front squat 205 for 5 sets of 4 reps at a bodyweight of 147. I started going on big hikes to test my endurance and I was able to get through 30km hikes within 8 hours with elevation gains of over 500m. This meal plan set me on the right path to achieving my goals, I gave up bad habits and have been sober since I started the program. I have never been this happy with my health ever before. The things that I learned will continue with me for the rest of my life when it comes to proper nutrition. I can not thank Jereymi enough for the opportunity he gave me, I will be forever grateful for the path he set me on.
As an athlete, over the years I’ve gathered lots of experience being coached. I’ve been coached by people who have played pro, coached pro and at high level colleges. I was very impressed in my two month experience with UpNorth Athletics and specifically Jereymi. He provided an approach to my nutrition that was more than accessible to my financial situation and to my busy work schedule. His dedication to continually improving his methodology and practices showed he was not afraid to admit if he found a better way and make the necessary changes. A point of emphasis that pleasantly surprised me is his initiative to educate his clients. His philosophy is that of teaching his clients to fish, not simply supplying them with it. In this way he definitely has given me the ability to continue applying what I learned throughout the rest of my life. Jereymi, I can’t thank you enough!
Health and fitness has always been something that I’ve struggled with my entire life. Only recently I have decided to make some lifestyle changes, and this is where Jereymi has impacted my life immensely. Jereymi is passionate, motivated, determined, and extremely committed to what he loves: helping people achieve their goals to become a better version of themselves. He does this by approaching everything in a very professional, yet caring manner. I would not think twice about recommending Jereymi’s program to anybody.
