I started training at Superior Metabolic Perfomance 4 years ago. At that time, I merely wanted to "Be Big". Over the last 4 years, my trainer and now friend, Jack Barontini, helped me to achieve a lifelong goal of mine and get on stage to compete in Amatuer Bodybuilding competition. I began my journey in January of 2011 as I began training and dieting religiously with Jack for my first show in April 2011. I stepped on stage for the first time as a novice Light heavyweight and took 3rd place. It was then that I became "addicted" to improving and sculpting myself into a bodybuilder. Its now just over a year later and I have been on stage 3 times since my first show,placing 1st in the Light Heavyeight class in the 2011 Seminole Classic and the 2012 Mid Florida Classic. The truth is, that I could have NEVER made it where I am at today without the knowledge, motivation, equipment, and support that Team SMP and coach Jack Barontini have provided me with over the past 4 years. I thank you Jack for all of your commitment, for taking my calls at 2am when I had diet questions,pushing me through training sessions and taking every step with me on my way to accomplishing my goals and dreams.

“I have tried so many times and so many ways to lose weight, but had not been very successful. From our very first session, I have felt I was in good hands with Jack. For the first time,
I felt as if my trainer saw me as a complete person instead of just focusing on my physical shape and abilities."
--K. Gore, age 30
“Jack helped me train for my first marathon and I could not have wished for a better trainer. I could never have gotten into this shape and would never have achieved this kind of
endurance with my own limited know-how about the abilities of my own body.“
--Nathan G., age 27
“Since I cannot motivate myself, I have now been training once a week with Jack for the past two years. Now, I cannot even imagine going through a week without a training session. Thank
you, Jack, for continuing to motivate me!“
