I’ve been seriously training with Jay since February when I told him I wanted to do a powerlifting meet and then compete in bodybuilding. He was more than supportive and gave no-nonsense training programs and advice. He not only addressed my physical training, but also prepared me mentally, dealing with everything from pre-meet jitters all the way to helping me cope with some deep personal issues. Leading up to the meet, he made sure I went in feeling confident and helped me through the entire process, from signing up, to weigh ins, to meet etiquette. I took 2nd place in my division in my first meet in June, 4 months after I started training, and now I’m beginning to train for bodybuilding, with another powerlifting meet in the process.
