Jeff's Individual Page
I have always been a “short/stocky” kind of guy. I
have always been an athlete and football was my favorite one.
That being the case I was always more concerned with being
bigger and stronger not so much leaner.
I am a personal training manager and have been in
the field for almost five years now. I love working out and
helping people achieve their goals. My current gym has a program
we do every year called the “12 Week Body Transformation”. The
main focus of this program is to help educate and motivate
people at the busiest time of year when people are “ready” to
make the change, January through March for those of you that
don’t know. The perfect time to implement those “New Year’s
Resolutions” and provide the guidance needed to follow through.
As a trainer and the training manager I find it
important to participate myself, even though many of my clients
told me I didn’t need it. Looking back I am very happy I didn’t
listen to them. I had made up my mind that there was no need for
me to be big and strong anymore and that getting “ripped” was my
new goal. Having gotten clients to that point already I knew I
had the tools and knew what to do, it was just time to put it to
Long story short, over the course of two
transformations while still focusing on my clients, I was able
to drop from 210lbs 18% bodyfat down to 170lbs 6.5% bodyfat! I
honestly never knew I had that much fat to lose. Now that I have
done it I will never go back to where I was physically, I feel
like a new person and have a brand new sense of pride. I have
since competed in my first bodybuilding show, the NPC Dutchess
Classic in Poughkeepsie NY placing 2nd place in the open
middleweight class. The competitor that beat me out went on to
win the overall of the show! I walked away from that show
feeling great but feeling like there was something else I should
do. That is when I really started pursuing fitness modeling. I
have a long road ahead of me and I cannot wait for it!

5am- Cardio- low intensity on an empty stomach
This was the only constant. Being a trainer my schedule is based on my
clients. I am sure to save about 2hrs or so in the afternoon for some more
cardio and weight training. I certainly don’t have the “answers” I seem to
have a knack for my body. I know I still have some things to work on, which
is what I am doing, but I see consistent changes in my body doing what I
have done. I do not have a set in stone plan, I know what I want to do in
the week and get it done day by day based on how I feel on that given day.
If and when I hit that “plateau” I will be sure to be a little more detailed
with my program, until then I am enjoying what I am doing.
