MEET THE TEAM
Director of Elite Performance Sales
As our Director of Elite Performance Sales, Certified Power Plate Trainer, and Sales Trainer, his mission is to help train, educate, and motivate fitness professionals. Most recently Jon applied his skills as a trainer at LifelineUSA to up-skill business owners and trainers on the programming and tools used in High Intensity Interval Training through HIGHX as well as tools used in functional training protocols. Jon has come full circle. His interest in fitness began as a short, skinny, kid with one goal, get big. He’s got his wish. As a personal trainer he gained firsthand knowledge on what it takes to make the difference in his life and others, though he’s set aside the heavy weights and replaced them with running shoes. At 6’ 185lbs he draws a stark contrast on the race course. As an endurance athlete he’s logged thousands of race miles and ten’s of thousands of miles in training. With close to 20 marathons under his belt, including Boston, Chicago, San Diego, countless Half-Marathons, 10K’s, 5K’s, as well as triathlon, he strives to inspire health, wellness, and most importantly personal progress for today, for life. His drive and passion for leveling-up is unquestioned as he surrounds himself with the some of the best in the business.
“You want to be motivated, I’ll motivate you…but motivation is fleeting. What you’re looking for is drive, to be driven, and you need to find that for yourself. So ask yourself, ‘What do I want?’ and ‘What am I going to do with it when I get it?’ ‘Where am I going?’ and ‘What am I going to do when I get there?’ This is the drive that you’re looking for….” J. P. Krueger
