Jonathan has been helping many people since 1992 make exercise a lifelong “commitment”, which he is passionate about. His clients have ranged in age from 10 to 96. He has a degree in Sports and Exercise Science from the University of New York at Buffalo and is certified by NASM as a master trainer, corrective exercise specialist, senior specialist, weight loss specialist and behavior change specialist. He specializes in working with people who have Parkinson’s to help them manage and reduce their symptoms. He has trained people in their homes, private gyms, outdoors and at top health clubs in Los Angeles. He loves taking people through many different types of workouts. All of his exercise programs are well balanced and challenging, personally designed to help people get into their best possible shape. He has led youth, adult and senior training programs.
He has a large experience working with the average person who wants to: get in shape, lose weight, get stronger, have better posture, strengthen their core, become more flexible, improve their balance, and look and feel better. He is able to develop a great exercise program and is able to help someone get on a healthy eating plan.
He is very passionate about working with children getting them moving and eating healthier. He has led classes for children: strength and conditioning, step aerobics, toning and sculpting. He has trained a number of children individually as well helping them get on a good exercise program, inspiring them to eat healthier and make exercise a part of their lives. Many children will take guidance well from a trainer, which sometimes doesn’t always happen from their parents.
He has worked with many adults: helping women lose fat and weight, look and feel better, fit into their clothes, get more toned, lose inches in their abs, legs and thighs, strengthen their cores and have better posture. He has helped many men as well get stronger, strengthen their cores, increase lean muscle mass, lose that belly fat, go through challenging workouts, be consistent, and look and feel better.
He has worked extensively with seniors in a group and individual setting. He is very concerned about older people being active, having the strength, balance, flexibility and stamina to live their lives. Many seniors decline rapidly when they aren’t active usually suffering from a number of various ailments. He has worked in three assisted living facilities leading exercise programs. He has worked in 3 cardiac rehab facilities, in an outpatient cardiac rehab program at The Veterans Hospital in Buffalo, NY, at Cedar’s Sinai Medical Center and in the inpatient cardiac rehab program at Saint John’s Medical Center.
Many of his clients now and over the years have been 60 and above. Many of these clients have various medical issues ranging from muscle and joint problems, heart issues, diabetes, strokes, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. He has clients who have bone spurs, bursitis on the hips and shoulders, rounded shoulders, hip and knee replacements, herniated discs, broken shoulders, torn rotator cuff, rheumatoid arthritis as well as many other medical conditions.
Through being a corrective exercise specialist, he is able to assess people and identify muscles in the body that are out of balance. For example, in a person whose shoulders are rounded their chest muscles are tight and their upper back muscles are weak. Jonathan develops specific programs to help the person get on a program tailored to his clients muscle imbalances, injury considerations and goals that will help them exercise the body without injuring themselves and most of the time healing from their injury through rehab exercises and stretches.
Through working with many people who have Parkinson’s ranging from 47 to 91 and from mild to advanced symptoms, Jonathan has developed effective exercise programs to help reduce and manage their symptoms.
One of Jonathan’s major focuses has been on helping people have better posture. So many people have rounded shoulders and a forward head posture, weak upper/lower back and neck muscles, as well as muscle tightness and pain. Jonathan has developed a specific program to help people increase their upper/ lower back and neck strength and flexibility as well as reduce or diminish their pain.
Ultimately, Jonathan Rose is passionate about helping people live their highest quality of life possible: being active, eating healthy and enjoying their life.
