I have been working out at least 5 times a week since early 2018. I grew stronger and stronger over time but started hitting my limits in late 2018. Neither my strength or muscles were growing any bigger, even though I was spending 2-3 hours in the gym every day, and eating a big amount of protein. I knew I had to tweak my training but I was unsure how to do it, and I have always been skeptical of personal trainers because I was already lifting heavier weights than them, and honestly, I did not trust they could actually spot me if I have a muscle failure while using the barbell. On the other hand, I saw that some trainers had big muscles, but I never saw them doing body weight exercises, which is a sign they can't handle their own weight anymore. I don't want to be one of those guys that just look big, but they are neither strong or flexible. Things remained the same until I saw this massive guy doing muscle ups in the gym. I was surprised to see someone of that size doing body weight exercises, let alone muscle ups. That guy was Jordan, which striked me right away as someone approachable. Over the next couple months I had a few interactions with Jordan, where he was keen to point out how I could build up the strength to do the muscle ups, and he mentioned he was a personal trainer but never pushed me to get training. Eventually I asked Jordan if we could schedule 24 sessions and so we did. Before my training began my weight was 170 lbs and 17% bodyfat. Two months later I was 188 lbs and 18% bodyfat. Training with Jordan got me out of that previous plateau, and even now (3 months later) I have been able to maintain my gains, still following Jordan's training routine.
When I started with Jordan I couldn't barely squat! He quickly changed my training routine, adapting it to match with my goals and body type. After some sessions I felt that I was on the right track. In every session he did something to push me out of my comfort zone, avoiding plateauing and pushing me in the right direction. After a few months aligning the training with a good meal plan, I could see some impressive results, even when I had an injury playing soccer he was able to adapt the training so I could turn around the injury.
This man has changed my life. I’ve worked out with Jordan 3 days a week for about 3 months and I couldn’t have asked for a better coach. He continues to be a huge inspiration for me and has pushed me beyond what I thought I'd be able to accomplish. When I first saw Jordan at the gym I was like - how do I look like that man?! He’s goals! So I came to Jordan seeking guidance on weightlifting - I had been working out for a couple years before but wasn’t seeing much result and I honestly I had very little confidence in what I was doing. I started with Jordan at 205lbs then went up to 220 with 10+lbs increased lean muscle and 6% decrease in body fat in just a couple months. I’m continuing that journey on my own - now at 225lbs and still going strong. Jordan’s support has helped me more confident not only in my workouts, supplement intake and diet, but more so in myself. He’s become like a big brother to me who I constantly look up to. I’ve released the beast inside me and I’ve never felt better!
Jordan is an amazing trainer! He was able to break down the steps to help me achieve my goal and gave me in depth tips and advice on how to progress to the next level. He also included information on how to not only avoid injury, but how to work around injuries. He is very knowledgeable and knows how to build muscle, but also how to train for function and explosive power. It's very rare to find a trainer that can do it all let alone teach it all. He is the real deal!
Jordan was instrumental in starting my bodybuilding career. His mentorship with regards to training, nutrition and supplementation allowed me to rapidly transform my physique. I’d highly recommend Jordan to anyone who wants to look and feel their best.
I got the chance to train with Jordan and I saw results in my metabolism very quickly. As a sedentary person I highly encourage everyone to challenge themselves and take the chance to make a big change in their lifestyles in order to achieve their fitness goals. It might not be so easy but Jordan helped me to discover what my body can be able to achieve with a good mentality and determination.
Working with Jordan is an absolute pleasure, he is not only knowledgeable in getting you to your goals but he is patient and understanding. His passion for fitness shows in the work he does with others. It doesn’t matter how little or much you know about fitness, there is always something I learn in working with Jordan. He has continued to push me to grow and evolve in my fitness journey which has given me a new sense of confidence I couldn’t have imagined prior. Thank you Jordan for all you do.
I've known Jordan for about a year now, and I have had the chance to train together with him, and since the first session, he showed his knowledge about how to train your body, mechanics, form and technique, plus he is very committed and always makes sure you're doing the right thing. I always love training with him.
I first noticed Jordan on Instagram, and then at his gym in downtown Vancouver. I thought he was intimidating until I was introduced to him. Turns out hes a very nice guy and passionate about what he does. I decided to train with him, and over the next 4 months he transformed my body and my mindset. I lacked experience and confidence in the gym in the beginning. He taught me so much about training, diet and supplements that Im confident in the gym, and feel better about myself than I ever did. I struggled with an eating disorder and depression in the past. Jordan showed me I had potential and helped me tap into it. I am now stronger than ever and continue to train every day as its a lifestyle for me now. Thanks Jordan!

When I started training with Jordan, I came to him knowing so much about strength and bodybuilding. Jordan is someone who listens carefully to your fitness goals and helps you achieve them with all his efforts. At the gym, he taught me the correct form and correct techniques in order for me to grow and become stronger. Being his client has been an absolute pleasure, especially when you see the differences in your body tangibly.
Jordan is an outstanding personal trainer, from my experience he is extremely passionate and knowledgeable in regard to his teachings. While working with him you will discover how committed he is. While most trainers simply take a course and learn from a book in order to become qualified, Jordan goes above and beyond. He applies himself tried and proven methods in his training regime. Experience through application and knowledge is nothing without it. This is why i personally strongly recommend him. If you have a goal in mind he will get you there. He gives it to you straight up and makes you level up. Hands down one of the best in the business!
His knowledge, compassion and love for the sport is undeniable. I'm always able to push beyond plateaus when training with Jordan ! True brother of iron !
Signing up with Jordan was one of the best things I have ever done! Jordan helped me achieve my goals so far and I love our sessions. He makes it fun and enjoyable to train and he is very motivating and encouraging!
I've been training with Jordan for about a year and I never fail to have a good workout when we train together. He's very motivational and is always pushing me when we workout together. On top of that I've been able to learn a lot bouncing diet and exercise tips off him. I always recommend him to friends who are looking for a trainer.
"I started training with Jordan in the beginning of Jan 2019. Before that I had never seriously gone to the Gym regularly and, although I've never been fat, I had a sedentary lifestyle working for years in front of a computer. I decided I needed a change and that's when I met Jordan at Steve Nash in Vancouver. In the year we worked together I've gotten stronger and healthier both physically and mentally. He pushed me beyond what I thought I was capable of, always in a safe and controlled environment. Now I'm in the best shape I've ever been and I've learned how to stay that way. Don't get me wrong, it has been really hard work, but it was worth it... And having an expert guiding you makes it a lot easier."
