About Jake

Aloha! I recently moved here to San Diego from Hawaii to finish my degree in Human Biology at the University of California San Diego. The past four years I have spent studying Functional Fitness and Functional Bodybuilding while coaching at CrossFit gyms. I also have over 10 years experience in Triathlon training and can help make you a more efficient athlete while increasing your cardiovascular fitness in running, swimming, or cycling. I love fitness in all of its forms and would love to show you how I incorporate training methods from a wide variety of sports to make a stronger healthier you. Weather you are looking to compete in sports, or just become a healthier version of yourself, I guarentee I can help!


I also make use of an intuitive app to program virtually speciality workouts and personalized nutrition guides. That way we can also work together fully virtually or in a hybrid format!

Just in two weeks in and this is the best fitness program I've done. I've worked with multiple trainers in the past, who always start out encouraging and interested in my progress but once I buy their training package they loose interest and are on their phones during workouts and I get bored. Coach Jake is way more accessible (he answers all my nutrition questions) and the workouts are always so efficient. My muscles feel the perfect level of exhaustion in a way shorter period of time than "programs" these other trainers had me on. Anyways, I am for sure sticking around with coach Jake, he really puts his heart and sole into this

Like many others, covid took a toll on my physical and mental health. I moved to San Diego for a fresh start and wanted to get myself back into the gym. I found Jake online and we met for a coffee to chat about goals and creating a plan together. For almost a year now he’s been training me, pushing me to stay fit and healthy, and getting me on a structured workout schedule. We get along great, I am physically feeling stronger and most of all I feel great mentally. I recommend Jake, regardless of your shape or fitness goals.
