It was wonderful working with Jaime at Tru-Fit. He is the ultimate professional and really knows what he’s doing. I was very out of shape and he made sure to take things really slow so I didn’t become injured, and he also went very out of his way because I don’t even live very close to him. I was continually impressed and I highly recommend Tru-Fit! More...

Jaime is incredible. He will work with you until you feel like you're ready with yourself and he makes sure that you feel good with yourself. I've worked with jaime for a couple of years and not only did I get the results that I wanted, but I also gained a new friend. In the time that I spent with Jaime, I lost 30lbs and I have never felt better about myself. Jaime is awesome and I will always recommend him if you want good and lasting results. More...

I started using Jaime for my 19 yr old son. They got along great and made good progress. When my son returned to college, I began to train with Jaime. I am 56 and was not raised to exercise or participate in sports. I was tired, overweight and fighting chronic illness. Not that it has been easy, but we've made progress! I've lost weight and more importantly, inches. I feel more energetic and have drastically reduced the maintenance medicines I was taking. Jaime is a great guy with an engaging personality and understands what motivates me. My goal is to feel fit enough to try anything that interests me and to live longer - think I'm well on my way!

I have worked with Jaime for about 18 months and could not say enough about him. He has changed my life. I am down 40 pounds, but more importantly, I am strong. He has been there every step of the way, encouraging, coaching, and most importantly, never letting me give up. I owe him an enormous debt of gratitude. He is simply the best at what he does.

I started my fitness journey a year ago with Jaime and I could not be happier with the results. When I first met with Jaime we discussed my goals and put a plan in place. I was not only being trained on how to properly exercise but I was educated on how to have a healthy lifestyle. My quality of life and self-image have significantly increased since working with Jaime. He is an amazing trainer, coach and professional. I highly recommend him to anyone that wants to begin or continue his or her fitness journey. More...

Jaime is a fantastic trainer who knows his stuff. I used to have a lot of pain from a shoulder impingement, but after working with him a few months, my shoulder is stronger and continues to get better every week. I really like how you are held accountable by having to log your workouts on an online fit log to ensure you're getting all of your workouts completed outside of the training sessions. His rates are very reasonable, and he is great about working out payment plans to accomodate your needs. Jaime has a great personality. He's fun and comfortable to work with, and his methods work. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to get into better shape. More...

Last Spring, I was pretty miserable. I was very overweight, very out of shape, and living with a lot of pain in my feet, ankles, knees and back. It was getting difficult to do the every day things I needed and wanted to do, and I was feeling lost. Exercise hurt too much which resulted in more sitting, more eating, and more weight gain. In a moment of motivation, I searched on Yelp for personal trainers near me and made a call to TruFit. I feel very lucky that Jaime answered the phone that day. We've been working together for 10 months now.

In that time I've lost over 50 pounds, a few clothing sizes, and many inches. More importantly, my back pain is gone and I am back to hiking, walking, and I recently started running again. My joints feel much better and can carry me wherever I need to go. The best change is that my resting heart rate has gone from 84 beats per minute down to 63. I feel much healthier, happier and have a lot more energy.

From day one, Jaime has been encouraging, motivating and challenging. Our workouts are always changing and I'm never bored. Jamie focuses on all aspects of health, not just our strength training sessions: nutrition, food habits, sleep, cardio, and more. He genuinely cares about me and is fun to work with.

I have more progress I want to make; and I just signed with Jaime and TruFit Personal Training for another year. I'm looking forward to another year of success and finding out what I'm capable of next!

Jamie was great. It is so convenient that he comes to you. Good workout where he pushes you in a short period of time.

Jaime is an absolutely amazing trainer! Since day one I have been very pleased with the experience. Jaime is very friendly and extremely easy going. What I liked about workouts with him is that he was a really good listener and really customized workouts that were suitable for me. Jaime is very cautious, genuine and cares about his clients. He really wants you to succeed. He provides equipment, tracks your progress, gets you a heart rate monitor which I was super excited about. Also, what I liked was that he does not use many machines. Body workouts were great for me and I did see changes in my body. I needed to move out from the area and I truly regret that we couldn't continue our workouts. I definitely recommend Jaime. His personality, knowledge and experience makes him not only the best trainer but also the best person ever! You will not be disappointed!!! More...

You know that rut you get in where you know you need to exercise...just need a little help getting there?  Yeah, I was there. Arguably, I'm still there.  I'm not a big fan of co-ed gyms, because working out with weights in front of dudes kind of weirds me out. Especially deadlifts. Oh, and when you stand there for 10 minutes awkwardly trying to figure out how to use the machines. Ugh.So, I figured, I'd hire a personal trainer to at least get me started in learning how to do things the right way. Of course the fear then was, what if he's some guy who preys on lonely middle aged housewives?  Well, I figured I needed to do something, and would give it a try. I found Jaime (owner of TruFit) on Yelp and he offered 2 weeks free to give his services a try.  Luckily, he wasn't a weirdo preying on lonely middle aged housewives (not that I'm lonely or a middle aged housewife, but its totally ok if you are).  Anyway, we sat down the first session and talked about goals, and what I was looking to get out of this whole deal.  I officially signed up for a 6 month package.  Jaime gave me a heart rate monitor to track sessions, hooked me up with an online "Fit Log" so you can see your progress...and guiltily see clearly when you don't hit your activity goal for the week, and he does monthly progress sessions. I feel a lot stronger, and just overall more fit. Actually, I know I'm a lot stronger from the monthly progress sessions. Yes, I have a ways to go, but feel like the building blocks and knowledge are there to help me keep moving forward.  Oh, and another plus, is that when you need equipment, he'll stop by Dick's and pick up what you need and just bill you.  Its soooo helpful!  Have you ever tried walking out of Dick's with two 30 lb dumbells and getting them to your car!?!  Anyway, if you need some motivation and help exercising...or just taking yourself to the next level, give Jaime a try!

These days it's not hard to find a personal fitness trainer, the challenge is finding a good one! I've been training with Jaime for six weeks - happily committed to three more months -- and I highly recommend him. He is a skilled, knowledgeable fitness instructor with all the right credentials and tools, but more so he's a mentor and a motivator who shows a genuine interest in the overall wellbeing of his clients. And this has made all the difference! The hardest part of exercising, for me, is staying consistent and feeling challenged and most importantly motivated to do the work necessary to reach my goals- the obstacles have been both mental and physical and had me at my highest weight ever and feeling miserable and defeated. I felt like getting a trainer to kick my butt was my last resort, but I still didn't have the highest of hopes that I would stick with it -- not even after investing the money. I kind of knew after my initial meeting with Jaime, who showed up with a lot of positive energy and listened encouragingly as I unloaded all my issues, that he'd be a good fit for me from a mental standpoint. He gave me a few free sessions as a trial, which were great. Still I wasn't convinced that I would get to the point where I would actually enjoy exercising again, instead of looking at it as a tedious, painful experience akin to getting a root canal with no Novocain. I explained this to Jaime and he's demonstrated that he really listened to my concerns, and continuously addresses my mental blocks, physical limitations and anything else that keeps me from reaching my goals. He comes prepared each session with a workout that pushes me beyond what I think I'm capable of, with enough variety to keep me challenged and engaged, and working around my back issues so I get a good workout without injuring myself or enduring more pain. He's also filled to the brim with positivity and an ever present smile which keeps the strenuous workouts enjoyable, so you almost forget how hard you are breathing and sweating. You kind of can't be in a bad mood around him. Exercise is something I look forward to with him and on my own. In between sessions with him, Jaime will text you if you need that extra push to do your cardio. This seems like a little thing, but it's really helped me get over that hump to know someone is out there rooting for me and not taking any excuses or hearing the words "no" or "I can't". At first I wasn't certain the financial investment would be worth it. I've had gym memberships and used health club trainers. Jaime is a mobile trainer, meaning he will come to you. We happen to workout in the exercise room of my apartment complex, which works really well for me. The exercise room is fairly well equipped, but I can see how Jaime's routines and improvising could be effective in a home environment too. He's not there to just show you how to use gym equipment properly. He uses a wide variety of techniques and tools from equipment to your own body resistance. Jaime also has an online fit log where you can view your progress, and does 30 day assessments, which I like. I don't think you can go wrong with Jaime. I understand he's flexible with payment too, but I paid him upfront, and it was well worth the investment. I am really looking forward to how great I'll feel and look this Spring. Give him a try.

Your DIET. Plain and simple. Regular exercise obviously plays a role, but mostly towards quality of life.

I hold a B.S. in Exercise Science with a concentration in Applied Health from VCU and am ACSM certified (gold standard of training certifications). I've been a trainer since 2006 and loved every minute of it! Consultations are free and I also offer 2 weeks, free of obligation, to try me out before deciding.
