Before starting at MJ Fitness I had never worked with a personal trainer and really never exercised before in my life, so my first few sessions were probably as much of a challenge for the trainer as they were for me! I didn’t realize how out of shape I really was, I had very little muscle strength and a higher body fat percentage than I cared to admit. I worked out with a few of the great trainers at MJ and started to lose a few pounds, notice my energy increase and feel my muscles grow. These small changes made me want to commit to exercise and push myself to get into shape.

After my initiation into the gym I started to train with Jake Oritz 3 days a week. At first I was a little intimidated to work with Jake, a young guy in fantastic shape with me feeling old and very out of shape, however it only took a minute with him to discover that he is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Jake is truly passionate about helping people get into shape. He spends time getting to know his clients, finding out what their goals are and creating a plan to reach them. Jake is a true pro who really understands how the body works and knows that there is not just one exercise to reach your goal. I got frustrated when I struggled using a particular machine and felt like giving up, but Jake would just change the exercise to something I could do that would produce the desired result. He cares about his clients and not just getting through the hour. I look forward to my sessions with Jake, even when I don’t feel like going to the gym! I recommend Jake to anyone who wants to get into better shape and definitely to anyone who is looking to increase muscle mass. I have been training with Jake for a year now and I am constantly surprised at my progress. While it may be frustrating at times reaching certain goals, Jake and the rest of the MJ team are always there to encourage and help you move past your plateaus and reach new heights.
