“I love clients that want to try new things, or even improve on the skills that they already have” Jarvis explained. “Many people are initially worried about the fight training side of fitness, but once they throw that first jab, they are addicted and their confidence grows with each session.”
“This change in their confidence really gets them to look at fitness in a new light and keeps them accountable as they grow in developing their skills while having fun at the same time.”
“With my experience, training and qualifications I am able to keep the necessary ongoing training unique, developing and maintain interest which will really help the client continue their own fitness journey long term and love it.”
