Someone once told me the definition of insanity is: “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” That’s where I was until I met Jen Zuba. I was going to the gym, lifting weights and getting frustrated not seeing any results. But, I kept going regardless. I chalked up my lack of progress to being older and having a slower metabolism. As I did my usual routine I watched Jen work with several people and saw them smiling, having fun and actually getting results. I said to myself, with my travel schedule there is no way I could do what these people are doing and there is no way I can commit to a set time to have a personal trainer. I became completely frustrated and finally decided to do something. I met with Jen and gave her every excuse in the book why I couldn’t work with her and why I look like an overweight middle aged man, she sensed my frustration and was empathetic but not sympathetic. There was no sales pitch or unrealistic promises – she stated facts and explained why I wasn’t seeing any results. I decided to listen and try her method, and am now a loyal fan and believer. Jen Zuba is one of those rare persons whom, upon your very first interaction, imparts a palpable aura of sincerity, determination, and competence and from there, it only gets better. She leaves no doubt that she cares about what she is doing and who she is doing it for, setting and exceeding the very high standards she sets for herself and her clients. Jen’s understanding of nutrition and exercise became apparent in our first conversation. She drove home the point you can’t out work bad nutrition. The nutritional and exercise plan she outlined for me while I traveled on business during the personal training sessions was exactly what I needed. She held me accountable and was flexible meeting with me at times that were worked for me, until the change she wanted to see was a habit and she felt I accomplished the lifestyle change she spoke about. The inches came off fast and the best news yet after one year they are still off, I am eating healthy and feel I have something to fall back on when my business travel keeps me out of the gym. Despite Jen’s considerable experience she is always seeking new and better ways to help people. If you know Jen, this isn’t news, but if you don’t do yourself the favor of reaching out to her and I promise you’ll be glad you did, I know I am.
