Personal Trainer Biographies

John Cunningham

John Cunningham:

  • Philosophy: Stay just outside your comfort zone.  I relaxed once, became complacent, and stagnated for close to 10 years. Nothing productive came from it and I have never felt more unhealthy.  I made the decision to challenge myself and step outside that comfort zone at which point everything changed.  I believe we need to stay active, consistently challenging our mind and bodies.  No Matter who you are or what your level of fitness might be, if you are interested in new challenges, you’ve come to the right place, and I would love to meet and work with you!

  • Philosophy: Much of our life’s work is to discover and identify what is truly important and deserving of our efforts.This is a very worthy pursuit and the only conduit towards living richly and earning the greatest rewards with the fewest regrets. People find the time, energy and resources to pursue the things that are most valuable to them. Paradoxically, time spent on self-improvement enhances our ability to create community and nurture relationships that ground us and sustain our spirits. Read More

  • Philosophy: I believe the greatest gift you can give yourself is the gift of health, vitality and wellness. In today’s busy world it can be hard to find the time to take care of ourselves by exercising and eating right but we must make it a priority. Most of us want to be healthy, energetic and strong as we get older, and a regular cardio and resistance program can definitely help us achieve this! I can help you design a program that fits with your lifestyle, whether you need a program that you can do at home or you want to be in the gym on a regular basis. Read More
