0600 was a direct result of Jeff's years of struggling with his own weight loss and fitness goals. His daily workouts and fitness model are a combination of his 16 years of experience in the health and fitness field. Jeff is NSCA certified, Kettle Bell certified, and is a certified personal trainer. He has competed in races at all levels, including road races, trail marathons and ultra marathons (including a 100 mile race), triathlons, obstacle course events, death race training and military challenges. Jeff coaches and designs programs for clients at every fitness level. His specialty is getting people to step outside of their comfort zone and achieve goals they never imagined possible. When you become part of the 0600 community, you are quickly "all in." Jeff has turned casual runners into ultramarathoners and weekend warriors into fitness fanatics. Jeff models his life and work after a favorite quote, "You may never know what results come from your actions. But if you take no action, there will be no results." - Mahatma Gandhi
