“I started Signature Nutrition Plan on August 28, 2016 and my goal was to lose 100 pounds. As of the graduation of my program with Katie, I am down 60 lbs.  Over half way there in just over four months. I did not start an exercise program until two months into my program. I now do partner training with Jon twice a week. I am down 8 pant sizes and had to recently give away 3 boxes of clothes. Nothing fits! I was elated to buy a size of clothing I have not seen in about 16 years. It’s actually fun to buy clothes. My knees are not hurting and my strength and agility are improving each week. I daydream of what my summer will be this year being outside with the kids and able to hike and swim and generally not hide behind layers of clothes because of embarrassment. I completely recommend Ember® Fitness and Nutrition and you can trust that you will accomplish all you have hoped for as long as you don’t give up. You will receive support and tools to succeed!”

“I am an avid tennis player and as I was advancing toward my mid-50s. Jon spent a considerable amount of time researching the mechanics of tennis and from the start designed workouts targeting movement, core strength, balance and overall fitness. The results have been outstanding and I am in the best shape of my life at 54 years old. I give Jon all the credit in the world.

I struggled with dietary and digestive issues most of my life and had resigned myself to it. When I started working with Katie I learned certain foods that otherwise could be considered "healthy" might not be healthy for me. Along the way I learned to love prepping and cooking healthy meals that were delicious. I feel remarkably better than I did before starting the program. I can say with certainty that I will follow Katie's protocols for the rest of my life.”

"Jon is a great trainer and helps with real results. I started out lifting 3lbs weights after shoulder surgery and I am now the strongest I have ever been. He is hands on and we work on agility, leg training, strength training and he makes modifications if I need them. He also helped me learn that fitness and nutrition go hand in hand and bring very real results.

My workouts with Jon have helped reduce my overall stress level and maintain a healthy work/life balance even though I own a small business. So far it’s been six years of steady building of strength building and I love the results. Workouts are now a way of life and I am often asked how I stay in shape and can be so positive.”

Holy cow I cannot say enough good things about Jon and Ember Fitness. I am a physical therapist and was having difficulty completing aspects of my job due to deficits in strength, I wanted to lose a little weight and generally be healthier. During the initial consultation Jon's questions were thorough and really helped to paint him a good picture of who I was and what I needed. Throughout our sessions he tailored the experience more and provided me programs to complete when I was not with him. He is personable and professional and always made it fun even when it was hard. If you are with him in the summer he may even break out his dungeons and dragons workout where you get put to the test to defeat the goblins (actually crazy fun)! As a consumer and as a physical therapist I would highly recommend Jon to anyone looking for guidance and accountability and a fun work out!

Love Ember Fitness and Nutrition! Worked out with Jon in the past with great results and after a break, recently started working out again with him in hopes of achieving the same! He pushes you and doesn't let you stop! I also did nutrition counseling with Katie which really pushed everything over the top! Can't do one without the other! Convenient scheduling too!


I have been training with Jon three times a week since spring and thoroughly enjoy our workouts. Jon understands the body and can work around injuries and trouble areas. He always is professional and reliable in his home studio. I appreciate the workouts and the strength I have gained. I look forward to the next six months! If you're looking for a personal trainer, look no further! Plus, he can do Skype calls as well for those with busy travel schedules.

Jon's understanding of training coupled with his vast knowledge of the human body and their impact on biomechanics is simply incredible.

He is passionate about what he does and offers a lot more than just the workouts.  He is personable and lives the part.  

Nice studio and a really good & tough workout!

I have worked with Jon as a personal trainer for many years and both he and Katie are very knowledgeable and will help you with your health goals. They are awesome and I would recommend them wholeheartedly.

I have been working with Jon for years now, and I've been completely satisfied. I appreciate the flexibility --- around my work schedule, injuries, covid and everything else, and I enjoy the format, facilities and location. He is very friendly, professional, planful and knowledgeable --- and matches the workouts and advice to changing events and my goals. As far as I can tell, he can cater to a wide range of abilities, ages and styles, and for me hits the right spot in motivation and continued results.
