"I have been working with Jai over 3 years and I couldn't be happier with the results. I'm proud to say that I'm down almost 40 pounds and have more energy than I've had in a decade. I'm someone with an extremely busy schedule and have tried several things to get the weight off, but nothing has compared to my sessions with Jai.
She has kept me on track, worked around my schedule, made sure I was focused and doesn't allow for excuses (known to call family to check in on me). I found a motivating coach in Jai and look forward to working out and getting a healthy lifestyle back.
I can't say it will be easy, but I can say that a no nonsense trainer like Jai is the extra hand you need to make it over the hump. It has been worth every penny and I can't wait to get more results and finally reach my goal."
“Jai has changed my life not only in a physical way but in a mental, emotional, and confidence way. Working with her has taught me that my body is strong and capable of doing amazing things but only if I believe it can. I believe it can and I believe yours can too!!!"
