John Harewood

“Nurturing” is not among the most common descriptors a personal trainer might choose to hang their hat on, but that is precisely who John is. Knowing that the gestation of all great things begins with the careful management of their beginning stages, John leads with his heart, wielding an unflinching optimism and purposeful encouragement that work in tandem to mold a solid foundation for his clients to build on for the rest of their lives.

     John knows that the simplest key to fitness and its most complex obstacle are one in the same: how does someone put one foot in front of the other, every single day, to inch ever closer to their optimal health, happiness, and life potential? These steps do not begin and end with high intensity exercise, but let’s just say that John is acutely aware that the sneaker prints you leave in the gym should never be more than a few days old. 

     How do we become masters of our own behaviors such that working out is not a chore but something to look forward to? How do we navigate the overwhelming amount of health and fitness information that descends upon us from all corners of the internet and word of mouth? As a certified and passionate fitness professional, John is committed to bringing clarity to these important questions by empowering his clients with a sense of purpose, clear and achievable goals, and a steady stream of knowledge. These instillments act as a collective helm with which clients feel emboldened to steer toward the best version of themselves. So string up those laces and get ready to shout, “Land, ho!”. John cannot wait to embark on this important journey with you!
