Andrew Mitchell - SFG LII
I have been a trainer for 6 years and have been training myself for my entire career. The StrongFirst LII Strength test was the greatest challenge I have ever trained for and not getting on the first try at the certification weekend was quite a blow. Jay was my coach at the cert and he went out of his way to find me afterwards and offered to coach me from across the country to pass my strength test and gain my credential.
Jay went above and beyond to help me succeed. He was in touch everyday about how the training was going and making sure the day to day details were accurate. Not only was Jay's program successful in helping me press the 44kg bell for my certification, but it was so well thought out and planned for me specifically. It was obvious it wasn't a generic strength program. I work 10-14 hrs a day 5 days a week, so getting stronger doesn't always fit in my calendar. Jay took this into account, designing the perfect program for me. He made sure I could see results without having to change my schedule and I could not be more thankful for that.
If you have the opportunity to work with Jay, DO IT. Not only will he challenge you and push you to results you need, but he will also take time to make sure you're and sane while doing it. Fitness can be consuming and stressful, especially when you have big goals, but Jay takes all that out and makes it all about the results. 6 weeks of remote training and I couldn't be happier with where I am now.
