K.Jay is the proud owner and founder of SCE Fitness. He is a NESTA, ITCA Triathlon & Endurance Sports Nutrition and BioMechanics certified personal trainer and Certified Spartan SGX Coach. He has been implementing physical fitness in his life and the lives of others for over 11 years. Before he was a trainer, he spent most of his life unhappy in the decisions he made. He was overweight, tired and looking for solutions to change.
Spending time learning from failed past experiences, his academia, and personal trainers like his sister, he began to see the empirical evidence of implementing solutions with hard work pay off. His desire is to help people realize their full potential in life.
In 2015 he become an IRONMAN triathlon 140.6 2015 finisher, and is a top 10 Spartan finisher every year, and has placed second in his age group. These personal achievements, along with other races have provided him hands-on experience in training, innovative and effective nutrition, and developing the mental capacity it takes to accomplish difficult and physically demanding races. His aspiration for you is to experience and learn how to grow in ways you never knew possible. Through his journey and your perseverance and consistency, you will break through barriers to attain more personal growth than you ever hoped for.
He loves the saying, "Motivate the Mind and the Body Will Follow." This is his favorite axiom because it is the basis of what he does. With accountability, expertise and application, he motivate his clients to mentally push themselves farther then they have ever pushed before to achieve goals they thought impossible. Physical fitness is more psychological than anything else. His whole objective for you is "change for life for the rest of your life." If the mind is not involved or motivated, the results will be temporary at best. "Motivate the Mind and the Body Will Follow."
His clients consider him to be fun, high energy, and always wearing a smile. His great passion is to watch his client's achieve their goals.
