Meet Jon Merritt.
The son of a bodybuilder, Jon has always been active in sports. He grew up competing in karate, soccer, and long-distance running.
"sports taught me the need for strength, flexibility, endurance, dedication, focus, and - most importantly - how to keep a clear calm mind in an intense situation,” says Jon.
A background in the restaurant industry combined with an ongoing deep study of nutrition brings a full-life approach to Jon's training. He combines nutrition and fitness data with rigorous full body workout plans to achieve dramatic results for clients seeking peak performance or transformation towards their full potential.
He also helps clients develop mindfulness about their habits outside the gym.
"Understanding food, including ingredients, cooking techniques, and nutrition is essential for educating and inspiring clients to eat healthier while making food taste great,” Jon notes.
In his free time Jon trains as a mixed martial artist in the Bay Area, combining his background of karate, boxing, kickboxing, and Brazilian jiu jitsu.

About the NASM Integrated Training Certification
According to the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), integrated training is a reconditioning and rehabilitation program that can be used with any client to reach any goal by incorporating six forms of training: flexibility, cardio, core strength, balance, power and resistance training. The approach is a systematic way to enhance sports performance. Incorporating the six foundational fitness components into every training program improves all biomotor abilities, builds high levels of functional strength, increases neuromuscular efficiency, and powers dynamic flexibility.
