But why do we do things like that, that aren't good for us? I'm sure you can probably rattle off one or two things that you've done recently that aren't the best things for you. It's like you know they don't work for you, but you still do them anyway. Is it because you aren't motivated to change?
We strive to bring the best in their field to you to create the most personalized fitness program in history.

What Clients Say
Keeping Good Company
Provost at Haverford College
Jerry Washington is a committed, knowledgeable, enthusiastic trainer who makes the experience fun, interesting and always wonderful. He tailors programs to individual fitness levels, he monitors progress, encourages people to do their best and he mixes up the exercises. No two days are ever the same. [Working out with him] is the absolute best and it changes lives for the better. I love it!
Thank you, Jerry Washington!
When I first started training with Jerry, I was the walking wounded! I had perpetual back pain that limited my exercise options. Jerry was the first person to realize that my pain was emanating from my hip (something that so many Doctors missed). He then helped me build my strength back in a safe and effective way.
I started my journey with “baby steps”. It was frustrating not to jump back into my normal routine, but Jerry was a stickler for proper movement and form.
As a physical therapist, I can be wary of trainers; however, Jerry is well read, understands body mechanics, and thinks outside the box. I have trained with him for 1 ½ years and every session is a different and unique workout. He likes to challenge you in a way so that you don’t realize how hard you are working. The other day, I was amazed by my strength and flexibility improvement – I was able to participate in an advanced workout that I would never have been able to do without Jerry. I am grateful for my “improved”, pain free, and stronger body and to have Jerry in my life!
Jerry's methods work. I've trained with about 15 different trainers over the past 25 years and at least half of them work with elite pro athletes and Jerry is the most effective of them all. I had my second back surgery on October 9, 2017, six weeks later I started working with Jerry and the results have been amazing. I am pain free and stronger than ever. I took my first yoga class in over 100 days last week and wasn't expecting to make it through the 75 minutes but thanks to Jerry and the custom designed plan he created for me I breezed through the class. One of my initial goals was to resume Yoga. I highly recommend Jerry for the person just starting out on the road to better fitness or to life long athlete. Jerry has a keen eye towards seeing what your body needs to reach its potential and then designing a plan to make it happen

CEO Ceisler Media
Jerry Washington has taken training and my fitness to a new level. He has taken my age into account to give me an experience that matches my physical needs. Jerry has taken a great interest into developing a program that emphasizes flexibility as well as cardio capability. He even is serving an internship with a chiropractor in order to develop new exercises. In order to do this, we devote one half hour session just for stretching and it has proven to be a worthwhile investment. I would recommend Jerry to anyone who is serious about maintaining a desired quality of life well into one’s senior years. We have been preparing for hitting 60 for a few years and now that I am here, I do not even feel close to my age.
I have done personal training with Jerry Washington for about 7 years – hard to remember now. I have admired his flexibility to work with many different clients. He is comfortable with me – a 60+ year old woman – whose goal is to maintain myself as a strong healthy woman – and with younger clients who have specific fitness targets to achieve and surpass. Following my major cardiac surgery, he ingeniously developed a modified training program I could do at home to regain my energy and strength. Jerry’s emphasis is on whole body movement and strength, to enable a person to continue to be as strong and active as she can. He is unfailingly positive, even in the face of personal adversity on his part or on the part of his clients, which can occasionally be annoying if one is committed to having a grumpy day but hardly something to complain about.
