JR grew up as a chubby kid as health and nutrition wasn’t a primary focus. When he was in college a girl called him chubby
and that comment would change his life forever. JR began working out intensely and eating much healthier. He even entered into his first bodybuilding contest called The Tampa Classic and won first place. As JR began to see his body more defined and his overall health improve, he decided that he would help others look and feel great, too.
JR’s interest in personal training started with an interview with celebrity trainer, Mark Jenkins. Mark has worked with Sean “Puffy” Combs, LL Cool J, Tyler Perry and Beyonce, to name a few. Mark became JR’s mentor and taught him to be innovative and creative with each client as everyone is different and has different needs. Taking the advice, JR began working at Magnus Functional Training Group. It was there he would implement his functional and corrective training with tennis pro’s. Although JR blossomed as a superstar for the company, he decided to start his own business.
Today JR is the owner of 2daybefit, which specializes in athletic, functional, strengthening, and weight lose training. As a personal trainer to super star celebrities, executives of major corporations and people that simply want to lose weight and feel good about it, JR focuses on designing individualized programs to reach their fitness goals as well as help them to gain a better understanding of the importance of fitness, nutrition and wellness.
