Jackson graduated from West Virginia University with a Master’s Degree in Exercise Science. (Let’s goooo Mountaineers!) He has been a trainer since 2006 and is a Certified Exercise Physiologist (EP) through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and an EXOS-certified Performance Specialist (XPS). Jackson recently added a Pilates Reformer certification to expand his personal training abilities. Jackson feels that proper squats (his favorite exercise) are essential for everyone whether it be for sports, work or daily activities. One of his many specialties is training high school athletes. He has had clients go on to play football in Division I-AA, and Division I baseball. Jackson believes that everyone has a little athlete inside, regardless of their age or ability, because being an athlete is more mental than anything. Jackson himself has trained for semi-pro football, sprint triathlons, half marathons, and two body building competitions. He always has an end goal in mind when he is working out, and that is how he trains and motivates members here at the center. He is committed to seeing people reach their fitness goals.
