Jared grew up a multi-sport athlete in the Yakima Valley. Though he played basketball and football, his passion was baseball. He has worked with pitchers and hitters from YVC and West Valley through the years and continues to learn how best to train his clients. Hobbies include golf, archery, fly-fishing, hunting, breath work, meditation, and reading to name a few (did we mention golf?). He also coaches his son's soccer and lacrosse teams. He hopes to eventually earn his Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree and continue to work with athletes.
An injury to my ankle at 20yo in a baseball tournament left me with a severely sprained ankle and riding the couch for 3 months as I had no idea what to do to treat it. I gained 60lbs like it was nothing. I remember looking at myself in the mirror, 265lbs of out-of-shape looking back at me, I had to make a change. I quit my job as a package delivery driver and began working in the gym industry. I became a cycling instructor, began practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, cleaned up my diet, and took my life back from the injured athlete who got down. Now, my goal is to educate athletes to realize their full potential. Injuries, whether minor or major will happen, but we can be better prepared for them and get back on the field faster.
I coach because I love athletics. I love watching people attain the goals they have set out to achieve. More importantly, I love the process. We play the game to win, otherwise what's the point? However, it's the grind in the gym, on the field, in the classroom, and in your mind, that determines the outcome of a game long before it's ever played; that area and its potential are what excites me. We as former athletes and you as current athletes are capable of so much more than we realize. Let's realize it together!
