Jake Damman

Jake’s drive and desire to help others reach their fitness goals comes through personal experience. He discovered his gift in athletics, then found the weight room over 11 years ago and hasn’t looked back since. Jake played 8 years of baseball, along with 10 years of football. Outside of traditional sports, he’s competed in two bodybuilding shows, both in light heavy weight divisions; placing 2nd in both.

After seeing his own transformation take place, Jake wanted to find a way to help others seek out and achieve their own goals as well. He’s found that by providing highly individualized programming and having the opportunity to coach in a one-on-one fashion; clients are given a much greater chance to change and grow at an accelerated rate.
