I have been trained by multiple professional strength coaches throughout my hockey career, and Jamie is just as good if not better than all of them. Jamie made me stronger than I have ever been in a short period of time, and I highly suggest that you have him train you if you want to become faster and stronger.

When I walked into Blood Iron Barbell in July of 2019 for Jamie's beginners strongman class I could maybe deadlift 315 lbs for a single with a week's rest and a bit of good luck. Shortly after the class was over I signed on with Jamie as my coach. Less than a year later I pulled 415 lbs for a double with an axle, and now a little short of a year and half later I'm on the doorstep of a 500 lb deadlift. That's the kind of progress you can expect, that's the kind of progress I see around me with all his other trainees in the 315 strong crew.

Despite what some people say or you might read there is no perfect program or secret routine that will get you strong. Yes there are training methods that work, but what really matters is consistency and the work you put in. You need to show up every day and hit every rep. That is what you get from Jamie, he will push you and make you work HARD. He'll also make you shake your head and laugh a few times too, but he does that for free.

He doesn't train just bored middle aged guys like me just trying to stay healthy either. I've seen him have success with highschool athletes and seniors, and even those with disabilities. So whatever your circumstance if you want to get strong and learn to pick up heavy stuff that looks cool, give Jamie a call.

I've been training with Jamie for about six months. His training and programs have far exceeded my expectations. And likewise my strength and abilities have increased exponentially. I'm beyond elated with the goals I have already achieved and look forward to those of the future.
