"I hate your programming so much because it's so f****** hard, but each week is a weight/rep PR. Honestly, never felt so solid moving into these strength blocks, those 14-weeks of hypertrophy kicked my a** but I have such a good base right now. The fact I'm high bar pausing my old low bar working weights for more reps is crazy. My bench has never felt better. I'm repping weight wide grip I was struggling to do for doubles with competition grip. I'm also pulling close to my old max in deadlifts off a deficit for reps..."
"Jay has been an incredible source of knowledge and support along my powerlifting journey. I first started training with him about over a year ago and cannot emphasize enough what a quality coach he is. There are many voices in the fitness industry, however finding someone with true knowledge and experience can be challenging and often intimidating. Those who work with Jay and Platform Ready can be sure they are in good hands."
"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."
"...I set a goal that by the time I got out of the Junior SHW that I would set all the WA State USPA records. Well, within 10 months I set all the state, 2 American, and 3 World records. To say I am proud would be an understatement. I would have never imagined that I would come this far in such a short amount of time. The amount of time and effort that I have put into this has definitely paid off. Huge thank you to @platform_ready! None of this would have been possible with out ya. You duhh best! I'm excited to see what I'll accomplish in the next coming months!"
"Jay and I started working together five weeks before my second powerlifting meet in March 25, 2017. I was skeptical at first to hire a coach due to personal reasons, but after observing Jay’s coaching techniques and interactions with fellow gym member’s I decided to give Jamon the chance of hopefully helping me achieve my goals with upcoming powerlifting meets. In the short time that we worked together I learned more than I have in the past two years that I have been powerlifting. I was relieved to have a coach I can rely on when it came to programming and making sure I was training to my full potential. It’s a good feeling when you can come into the gym and not have to worry about what I was doing or if I was even in the correct training phase of my program, all I have to do is show up and lift. After five weeks of training with Jamon, I was very pleased with the results I received within the short period of time. Not only did I feel a difference in my strength but my endurance as well. I look forward to what the future holds for the both of us as we work towards my personal goal of placing at either USPA Worlds in November or USAPL Nationals in October."
