As we all do our part to flatten the curve, I wanted to put together a guide with resources and offerings from JKF Fitness & Health to help with your time at home while self-isolating. A new dedicated page with workouts, stretching routines, class sign-ups and tips can be found below:
Welcome to JKF Fitness & Health
Smart, Innovative, Funny, Entertaining, and always a little Irreverent
The focus stays on our clients as they achieve the bodies they want.

John's excited to offer in conjunction with the NYGFL two new free online classes on Monday's at 7:30 am and Wednesdays at 6:00 pm starting May 11 through the first of week June. Each class will be a total body workout incorporating components of yoga, mat Pilates, bodyweight exercises, intervals, aerobic moves, and household items to fitness equipment hacks.
People are Talking . . .
Read in the words of current and past clients why they love John and JKF Fitness & Health
If you want to use every ounce of energy and feel the most alive you ever have, John is you trainer. I started with a low level of fitness and over a year and a half, have been replacing pounds of body fat with muscle month after month and feeling better in every way. John is extremely knowledgeable about body composition, exercise and nutrition and puts together a plan that fits the goals you want, be it strength, speed or if you just want to look like him ;) Everything is tracked so you can see your progress which helps when it gets tough. It does take time but you have to trust the process, it works. He will push you to your best, you'll grow muscles you never knew you had but theres always fun and good laugh to be had. It doesn't get easier, you just get faster stronger and lift heavier. Flexibility is great, whether its your local gym or home gym (my preference) and if the session starts late, you'll go until your finished. If you are looking for a personal trainer that actual cares about your health/wellness/fitness, John is all that, and more.

Master the Squat
Checkout the ultimate squat progression
Squats are one of my favorite exercises and one that I try to make sure all of my clients (no matter age or ability) master.
As I tell them, if standing up is something you're going to be doing for the rest of your life, then squatting is going to need to be a part of your exercise routine.
