About Jay

I attended Chatsworth High School and earned five varsity letters in swimming and football. After high school, I served in the US Marine Corps Reserve, attended Los Angeles Valley College, and played football on a full athletic scholarship at CSU Long Beach.

Additionally, I worked at Florida State University as an assistant strength and conditioning coach while earning a B.S. in Physical Education/Sports Administration. At Florida State I worked with the football, swimming, basketball, tennis, and baseball NCAA teams as their respective strength coach. From 1996 to 2009, I worked as the Head Strength and Conditioning coach at Pepperdine University where I worked with every team on the campus. During my time at Pepperdine University, the teams I worked with won four division one NCAA titles and 50 conference championships.

Currently, I work as a personal trainer. The residential home I live in has a two car garage that I have converted into an excellent gym. My gym consists of four pieces of cardio equipment, weights, bench, pull-up bar, punching bag, etc. all on regular gym flooring. Since my gym is private (only one or two people at a time), my clients can do exercise combinations that could never be done in a public gym.

Regarding COVID-19, I am taking precautions to be as safe as possible. Since the open garage is essentially the same as working outdoors, it is much safer than being in an enclosed area like a public gym. Additionally, I disinfect all equipment after each use.
