Jeremy's favorite thing about Hardpressed is being able to work with clients of all different experience levels and abilities. He says, "Whether you are a former professional athlete or someone who is brand new to strength training or conditioning, if you have a positive attitude and are ready to work, I'm all in."
Jeremy believes that establishing a good rapport with his clients is essential for success. His goals are to listen to his clients and tailor the workouts to their specific needs. Once those two things are met, he is ready to turn up the heat.
