“During the first 6 months of working with Jess, my fastball increased from a peak of 88 mph to 97 mph.  I have gained 30 pounds of muscle, which has elevated my game to a whole different level.”

“I am 66 years old and starting my fourth year with Jesse.  I have worked with four or five personal trainers in the past and have watched many others.  Jesse is the best.  His routines are designed to meet the client’s goals and solve their problems.  My strength and flexibility have improved enormously and a long standing problem with my rotator cuff is no more.  Most important is that I was taking dangerously high doses of anti-inflammatories (NSAID’s) for osteoarthritis for a long period of time.  After working with Jess for 4 months, I have not taken one in over two years.”

“Since 2007, I have been training with Jess Banda to become a better baseball player, and more importantly a better athlete. He concentrated on workouts primarily that would help me as a baseball pitcher, while increasing my flexibility. When I first started working with Jess, I was 6 ft talk and 180 lbs and pitching around 77 mph. I am now 6’3” and 205 lbs and throwing around 87 mph. I’ve added 10 mph on my fastball, as well as gained 25 lbs of muscle. He has helped me reach many of my goals of becoming a serious athlete physically as well as mentally. Last month, I accepted an offer to play baseball and attend school at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California. They are a powerhouse baseball program currently ranked 17th in the country, and I would have never been able to make that happen without the help of Jess Banda. He supported me during our workouts, and motivated me to work hard every day in the gym and outside the gym to be the best.  Without the help of Jess Banda over the last few years, I would not be where I am today, and would recommend his work to anyone looking to get in better shape, or become a better athlete.”

“Some 18 months ago I began working with Jesse to get in shape.  As a management consultant, who is on the road all week, I needed a program that would make sense for someone with a rapidly changing schedule.  We developed a routine of regular Saturday workouts, supplemented by ones I could do on the road.  When I began, I had no regular workout regime and was suffering from shoulder and leg pains on my right side.  During the course of our work together (mainly me working, him directing), both the shoulder and leg pain are now completely gone.  When I began, I could not rotate my arms any farther back than directly over my head.  Now I can completely rotate from front to back with no pain at all.  We also embarked on a program of dietary supplements that work in concert with the physical activity for a holistic approach to better fitness. The net result is I’m in much better shape, have more energy and greater strength and feel the best I have in a long time.  Jess has got a great style, is a serious student of the art of fitness, as well as nutrition, and makes sure I use the proper form when doing the exercises.  He’s truly passionate about what he does, so this is not just a job, it’s an adventure!  During the course of my work, my wife – who had been struggling along on her own and was not satisfied with the results – joined me and we now make it a regular family event every Saturday.  In the last eight months, she’s been spending less time in the gym and getting better results.”

“In the last couple years, I’ve met hundreds of coaches all over the world. Out of these, only a handful stood out. Jess Banda is one of them…a driven individual, always looking for unconvential methods to get quick results. If you are from North America and you need the edge on high performance, consult with Jess Banda. ”

Wolfgang Unsoeld, Germany, www.YourPersonalStrengthCoach.com

“Jess’ passion for learning is eminent as his knowledge is so widely varied from detailed understanding of anatomy right to comprehensive facts on nutritional supplements and their ingredients. Obviously his years of experience in training has given him the awareness of what he can do to help the stressed executive to the athlete competing nationally and beyond.  His success in personal training is undoubtedly a reflection of his dedication and passion to obtain the highest outcome for his clientele.  I can only admire and be inspired by Jess.”
