Testimonials

I've been training with Jon for 4 weeks through the TrainHeroic app. The laid out exercises are creative and have movements relevant to my goals. The program has improved my knee to the point where I'm able to ride like I was before my accident. Jon is a well educated trainer who has a passion for fitness. He will find creative exercises to challenge you and help you meet your goals. I have no regrets, and have only been more inspired by my workouts.

I love the distraction of others doing their own thing while I’m working out. People to encourage or to complain with. I also love the flexibility of going a little earlier or a different day if we can work it out. I know myself that having other people expecting me to show up always gives me a push to get my butt out of bed in the morning. Thanks for keeping me fit for the last 3 years.

I started at Pratt's Pro Fitness because low back pain made me uncomfortable. I wanted to get stronger to decrease injury, increase lean muscle and increase speed/power. Since joining PPF I'm much more balanced from one side to the other, less injured, and have increased technical knowledge on lifting and programming as well as increased strength!

 

 

What I like most about PPF is Jonathan's knowledge. It's great to have an experienced trainer give me feedback and help me with my program and give me new ideas.

 

Joining PPF will definitely increase your quality of life (become pain free and reduce risk of injury). The programs are effective and safe for increasing strength. I would recommend Jonathan's programs especially to those who are injury prone.

I decided I wanted to start at Pratt's Pro Fitness because I am heading into retirement and I want to stay active and healthy. Also, I love gardening and over the years it has become a physical challenge. This program is helping me to continue my gardening. 

Since joining PPF my stamina has definitely increased. I feel healthier and happier! It pays to be proactive.

What I like most about this program is that it is developed for me! Jonathan has done an excellent job selecting the stretches and exercises to support my goals!

Jon is a textbook! Everytime I talk to Jon, I leave with something new with respect to physiology, running, and training. His passion for the sport of distance running has been shared with our Track and Field Team for many years now. We are so greatful to have him as part of our program!

My daughter is a competitive swimmer. My husband thought she would benefit from the assistance of a professional trainer to target specific areas of muscle development and build on her core strength. I have a physically demanding job which has resulted in chronic back discomfort. Although my daughter and I attend our sessions together, Jon has developed a program specifically designed for each of our unique target areas. We've been going regularly to Jon's for a few months and aside from the special "mother-daughter time" we now have, both of us have noticed a huge difference. My daughter's swim times consistently improve and her muscles look very well-defined. I was sold after about a month with Jon when I realized my back wasn't bothering me anymore! My posture has improved and I look more fit and feel stronger. Plus we both feel more motivated to make healthier active choices. Most impressive was how accommodating Jon has been to fit us in around our very busy schedules! Thanks Jon!

Jonny has been there to help my brother and I since grade 9 when we decided to take the sport of athletics seriously. With his knowledge and expertise, he took the two of us to the level we wanted to be and still continues to do so. He's never asked for anything in return because for him, helping people is enough! If your looking into living a healthy, fit lifestyle, this is the guy to take you there!

After years of various health care methods of treating the symptoms of back and neck pain Jonathan pointed out to me the source of my pain was poor posture. Now I can, with his help, work on this problem and remedy the situation. I appreciate the years he has dedicated to acquiring the knowledge of the human body and how it functions. He knows how problems start and how to correct them. Thanks so much, Jonathan. Betty Senior Citizenk pain Jonathan pointed out to me the source of my pain was poor posture.

I was lucky enough to have Jon as a coach during my four high school years, for long distance running. I always found him to be deadicated to helping us become the very best athlete that we could be, and was always professional. He would even coach my friend and I early in the morning with weight training that would improve our running performance. He is a great guy and very knowledgeable in the field of fitness. Thank you so much Jon for all your time and effort you put into our team of runners for all those years; we couldn't have done so well without you!

I have been privileged to know Jon for a number of years and so I have come to know him fairly well. He has always been a great supporter to the development of great track and cross country runners, taking time out of his day to help volunteer his time to attend practices and races. I am extremely grateful for all he has done for both me and my fellow athletes. I wish for Jon all the success that he gave me as both a coach and a friend and hope Pratt's Pro Fitness is all that he wants it to be.

During my four years of high school, I participated in cross country running and had the privilege of having Jon as a trainer. He came out to every practice and race, dedicated to help us with no reward to himself! His expertise in this field is incredible, and I would personally recommend him to anyone in need of improving their run and learning helpful techniques! Thank you Jon!

For a long time I've had pain in my left hip that often made it uncomfortable to sleep or sit for long periods of time. We were going to take a 2 week driving trip into the states and I seriously wondered if I was going to be able to do it. Jon told me that if I trained with him he could give me exercises to help this. I'm not very good at following through with things but having Jon as a personal trainer helped to keep me motivated. A few weeks after I started working out with him I took a 2 hour trip to visit a friend. I had no pain! It was awesome. Months later when we took our trip I was actually able to sit in the car for a 9 hour trip and STILL be pain free. Thanks, Jon! Couldn't have done it without you.fortable to sleep or sit for long periods of time.

Jon has been my coach for the past five years, and has recently become my great friend. He has coached me to great success in running and weightlifting. The first year i started training with him, i realized that my favourite event was the 800m dash and i ran 2:23 in it and placed closer to last at my regional championships. By the end of my high school career (three years later) I ran 2:07 and placed fourth at regionals, and now i am down to 2:00 flat which is 23 seconds faster than what i started out at. Jon is such a great guy, even with coaching set aside, that I remember this one time in high school he stayed up until 4am with me to proofread my physics essay that i was stressing out about. I am more than happy to have Jon as a coach and a friend.
