I’m 34 and started at JKC in 2015. My wife joined while I was working away in 2015 and started making amazing progress while also completing exercises I’d never perform on my own. I felt I was missing out so I signed up. JKC helps in establishing goals while also having clear direction of what to do, and how, in each session. They also measure your progress which is another means of motivation! At other gyms I wouldn’t have a clear plan and would just use whatever equipment was free, it was hard to see any results. Between setting some personal bests and making good friends its hard to identify a favorite memory. One that does come to mind was when I hit my target goal/PB in both bench and squats in the same session, big day.
I had always wanted to start lifting weights and get stronger, but didn’t know where to start. I was looking not just for a gym, but for training on proper technique to prevent injury and a program designed for my specific goals. I also wanted a fun and supportive atmosphere to keep me coming back. JKC delivered on all of this and more.
Jon and Thomas have a wealth of knowledge that help their clients get the most out of their time in the gym. Programs are continuously modified to keep the workouts challenging. Even through everyone’s program is unique, you always have the coaches and other clients cheering you on and pushing you to achieve new bests.
The people and the training set JKC apart from other gyms or programs I’ve tried in the past. Truly Jon and Thomas meet you where are and help you get to where you want to be. There are no expectations and never any judgement. You can go there having the worst day and you always leave feeling better. Truly JKC has given me a level of strength and confidence I would not have had otherwise ❤️.
I have never previously seen the passion and level of care that Jon and Thomas bring to everyone who works out at JKC. Their knowledge, insight and skills are extraordinary, and they work with everyone individually to ensure the best possible results. The attention to detail and to every person’s specific requirements and goals, and the incredible, constant encouragement they provide, is, in my opinion, what truly distinguishes JKC from any other program in which I’ve participated. I am extremely pleased with the progress I’ve achieved thus far, and it’s largely attributable to Jon and Thomas and the approach they take to training and working with people.
Before starting at JK Conditioning I had attempted strength training multiple times through various local gyms and at home. Each time I would end up frustrated and injured. A little over two years ago, I contacted Jon and shared my goal with him to complete my first Ironman and remain injury free in the process. Jon, Thomas and Angie have worked with me weekly and I feel stronger but most importantly I have remained injury free for 2 years, 2 months and 6 hours….. but who’s counting. HaHa. The atmosphere at JKC is welcoming for any age and ability. While Jon, Angie and Thomas are serious about GAINZ, I’ve never once found myself not laughing while working out. Thanks for helping me to continue in this crazy sport where strength training is often neglected but is the key to remaining injury free!!
