"Jacob (BSF) is a great trainer! He always makes customized workouts to meet your specific body goals. He is very knowledgeable on different aspects of fitness. If you have faith and remain consistent, you WILL see results from his program."
"Jacob Summers (BSF) is hands down the best trainer out there. His extensive knowledge of the body allows him to explain the “why” of a process and truly help you understand what you are doing for your body. Equally as important is his wonderful and warm personality that allows you to feel so comfortable even if you are miles outside of your comfort zone. I can never thank him enough for what he has taught me, and how he has completely changed my perspective on working out, and gyms in general. I no longer feel anxious when walking into free weights, and truly feel as though when I walk into the gym, I know exactly what I am doing and why I am doing it."
"What Jacob does best is his attention to detail. He makes sure that my posture is correct during each exercise. Because of that, I am more flexible and stronger, pleased with everything, and satisfied with my progress. Jacob is at the top as far as I am concerned. I enjoy our conversation, the personal attention, and the fact that he genuinely cares. I have noticed definition in places where there wasn’t any, I am stronger and have more energy. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding with my health condition. You are awesome so don’t change who you are. I couldn’t have asked for a better trainer. Keep up the good work!"
