I found my passion for health and fitness nearly ten years ago. Since then I have made an effort to learn about what it takes to live a long and disease free life (hint: it doesn't involve eating the Standard American Diet (SAD) and sitting in front of a television/computer for hours at a time).
A few of my accomplishments:
1. I've trained my asthma away and no longer need a rescue inhaler (an incredibly arduous endeavor, but well worth the effort)!
2. Competed and earned NAVY SEAL contract (only ~ 1,000 awarded nationwide per year).
3. Completed 50 mile ultra-marathon
4. Finisher of the Spartan Sprint, Super and Beast
Upon completing bootcamp I quickly learned the military was not for me. I always loved the hard training sessions and will toward personal growth, but not so much in a military setting (many lessons learned). After my discharge I decided to put my hard earned knowledge of health and fitness to use and share it with others.
I have experience training a variety of clients. Wherever you fall on the continuum of health and fitness, I am confident my training sessions will be of great service to you. Perhaps you're starting out and want to focus on weight loss; haven't been active for years; want to run a marathon or complete an obstacle course. Whatever your goal, I'd be honored to take part in seeing you through it.
Exercise is important, but so is education. I make a point to educate my clients on the fundamentals of nutrition and the importance of other health nurturing behaviors. I find this is a highly effective method to create desirable behavioral changes that are lasting.

I started work with Jamil about 3 months ago. I was totally new to working out, as I have never tried it, but I knew I wanted to make it a part of my everyday life. My primary goal was weight loss and I lost 15 solid pounds in less than 3 months. One of the most important aspects of what Jamil offers is guidance and education on nutrition. This has played a crucial role in my ability to not only lose weight, but keep the weight off! He's more than JUST a trainer: he has been my guide for positive behavior change which has enabled me to lead a better lifestyle. He challenges me when appropriate, but also knows when to back down in intensity when appropriate. I totally trust his skill and knowledge to keep me safe, but effective in the training space. Overall he is a great trainer and I feel so lucky that I have had the chance to work with him. He really puts his heart into each session all the time. He had made me a better version of myself.
