Wellness Coach, Online Personal Trainer, One on One Personal Trainer, and Strength & Conditioning Coach
The reality is that I was overweight and out of shape not too long ago. I fell into the trap that most of us fall into. The mindset of I’m tired after work, watching TV every night, the TGIF and it's hard to eat clean. Why workout? I’m already married with children, so I don't have time. I bought into the lie that I told myself to accept where I was at, but I hated how I felt and the way I looked so I had to start making sacrifices. I started getting up early, started making better choices with food, going to the gym once a week, then twice a week, and soon I gained enough momentum to start moving to my new reality. I couldn’t stay the same because staying the same was not standing still but moving backward. And now I am here to help you get to your next level because if I was able to do it so can you, but you have to make sacrifices.
So what sacrifices are you willing to make? When did you stop caring about yourself? When did you get off track? When did you give up? What sacrifices are you willing to make to start moving forward again? I’m here to drive you. I’m here to push you. When did you get comfortable? Comfort is your enemy, and I’m here to make you uncomfortable so that you can wake yourself up because you feel asleep on yourself. Don’t buy into the lie and accept where you are today.
I know you can do it. I know you can get out of the lie that you told yourself. The person you are right now is only a starting point. Changing direction will change the road you are on, and I’m here to help you. I’m not going to let you stop. I’m not going to let you quit. There is no more “you” it's now a “we” and an “us.” Our job is to get you stronger, our job is to help you reach for your goals by getting just a little bit better every day and soon you will look back and not even recognize the person that you left behind. The job of all of my clients is to get just a little bit better every year. The biggest mistake that you can tell yourself is the person you are today is who you are because who you are today is not who you can become.
No matter what your goal is, I can help you. If I can do it so can you.
If this is the first time we have met, let me tell you about myself.
Hi, my name is Jairo Morales, and I’m just a guy who is trying to be healthy. I started on my fitness journey when I was 19 years old. I fell in love with every aspect of fitness, and 20 years later, I am still at it. I’ve had my ups and downs like everyone, but have always had fitness as a part of my life, so I decided to do it as a career, and for the last 20 years, I have been training the general population on their fitness goals and have loved every minute of it.
About 5 years ago, I found the second love of my life—Brazilian jiu-jitsu—and since then I have become a BJJ athlete. Words can’t describe what it’s like. The best example I give people when they ask me what it is, “it’s like playing chess with your body, it’s a game of strategy, technique and a touch of athletics, but the better you get, the better players you play, so it’s a never-ending battle that teaches commitment and discipline.”
The combination of 20 years of training the average person on their fitness goals and now being a combative athlete with all the aches, pains, and injuries involved with that sport has made me refocus, and it’s changed my perspective not only with my own personal goals but those of clients. I work in a five system approach:
1- Joint Mobility
This approach and my perspective allow me to work with anyone at any fitness level, from the beginner who has never worked out before to the athlete prepping for a world competition.
My goal is to help you to get to your goal. We are all a work in progress, and I have a philosophy that I follow for myself and share with all my clients. If you decide to hire me as your personal trainer/coach, I expect for you to follow it as well:
“I am here, and I’m happy with this. Who I am today will not always be, and if I’m proud of me being me, then the chase for happiness will disappear, and life’s fulfillment will magically appear.”
Come with me on this journey so that you too can find what fulfills you.
