I’m Jamie Gallagher and my passion is training people of all fitness levels to reach their full potential. While serving in the United States Marine Corps, I learned that high-intensity functional fitness is the path to strength, endurance, and well-being. My goal is to provide life-long fitness to my clients to enable them to do enjoy the activities they love to do, throughout their lifetimes. I accomplish this by designing individualized workouts that encompass core strength, mid-line stabilization, balance, body weight exercises, gymnastic movements, and different variations of cardio training.
While in the Marine Corps, I used this type of training to improve fitness for both Marines and civilians. While stationed in Okinawa, I commanded a platoon of Marines. After training them using this exercise philosophy for three months, each Marine’s physical fitness test score improved by about 50%. Injuries declined even with the higher-intensity training plan.
At my next duty station, I volunteered to start and teach a functional fitness class to both civilians and Marines. The class had both highly trained Marines and civilian executives and clerks who wanted to shed a few pounds. My workouts are designed to scale for each athlete’s fitness capacity, to meet each athlete where he or she is. All class members did the same exercises – just with different weight, or greater or fewer rounds of exercises to complete. I made individual modifications for each athlete, as needed, to work with mobility concerns due to prior injury or lifestyle. The athletes in my class elevated their exercise capacity through all measurable levels of fitness and commented on a better quality of life.
Now that I am a civilian myself, I am bringing my experience and best practices to you. Together, we will build your foundation of fitness, achieve your athletic goals, and transform your life.
