And real life, because your plan has to work in the real world. It's easy to create a perfect plan that works with your perfect schedule, perfect job, perfect family, perfect discipline, perfect children... perfect life! Don't have one? Yeah, me neither! But I found a way, and I can help you find your way, too.
You can achieve your goals, even with all of life's imperfections, all you need are goals that motivate and a plan that works for you, together with patience, persistence, and forgiveness.
It truly doesn't matter how old you are, or if you feel like you've already tried everything. I felt the same way, for 30+ years of trying this and that and never quite getting where I wanted to be. I turned 50 before I found goals that truly motivated and a plan that worked. You can too.
Where to start? The good news is, you already have. Simply being here means you've begun contemplating making changes. That's a huge step, perhaps the biggest, most difficult one, and frankly, one that most people never take. As far as I'm concerned, all that remains are the details!
Speaking of details, the other good news is I can help you start right now, this minute, in fact, starting with #1:
1) Online Content Here and among my social media accounts. No obligation, and all a click or a tap away.
3) Remote Motivational Coaching Including goal setting, wellness counseling, and nutritional advice, no matter where you live.
Let's take these one-by-one.
Aside from the value of the content itself, this will give you a chance to get to know me a little better, particularly if you are considering hiring me as your personal trainer.
Videos about health, nutrition, fitness, with tips, tricks, reviews, motivation, and a weekly Fitness Vlog.
Images detailing my dietary successes and failures so you (and for that matter, I) can learn from both! Plus IGTV with video shorts focusing on fitness tips.
A more personal take on my fitness journey, detours and all, including in part my Instagram feed, and brief updates and additional commentary on my YouTube videos.
News and research links with related commentary on health, fitness, diet, nutrition, and all things related to general wellness.
Open Q&A board where I answer questions related to health, fitness, diet, nutrition, and all things related to general wellness.
I also have a set of goal setting worksheets you can download (red button in the upper right-hand corner of this web site). Additionally I would encourage you to poke around the place. Check out the tabs above including Marketplace and the About sections.
2) Personal Training Services and Group Fitness
If you reside or work in the northern Virginia are of Washington DC, you can take advantage of my Personal Training services (primarily in-home, but also at studios where I have arranged access) and Group Fitness Classes throughout the area at various clubs (both found under the Services tab). I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, AFAA Group Fitness Instructor, and Red Cross certified in Adult and Pediatric CPR/AED First Aid. I am also specifically certified in a wide variety of strength, cardio, and core formats, from Barre to Insanity, TRX to ActivMotion, Dumbbell work to HIIT, and much more, all of which I can provide on a one-on-one basis. I bring all the equipment we'll need as well. You might want to check out my Class Schedule, there's a chance you are already a member of a club where I teach!
3) Remote Motivational Coaching
Don't know where to start? Just need some guidance, someone who has been there, and knows all the ins and outs of diet, nutrition, fitness, exercise, fitness clubs, trainers, and so on? I can be there for you no matter where you live. You should never feel like you don't know what to do, or feel badly that you don't. Why would you? You have your own job, family, life, to deal with . Let me deal with this part. Check out my Motivational Coaching services (under the Services tab). I have packaged deals, but we can always customize something for you. Goal setting, wellness counseling, whatever will help you on your journey.
Thanks for dropping by! Please feel free to send me a note whenever you like, either at firstname.lastname@example.org or using the Contact tab at the top of any page
No matter where your fitness journey takes you, or who you take it with, know that you can get where you want to go. All you need is a set of goals that work for you and a plan that works for your goals.
Take care and be well!

Jon represents everything that you would want an instructor/personal trainer to embody. Professionalism, dedication, meticulous preparation for every single session, attention to details, wonderful sense of humor, always positive and encouraging vibes and great devotion to help his clients. I highly admire his personal fitness level and look up to him. Thanks to his guidance people achieve their goals while actually having fun and enjoying Jon’s entertaining personality and hilarious jokes.

I took group fitness classes with Jon Fotos and I found he gave a tough, but intelligent, workout. His instructions were clear and easy to follow; he obviously is a logical and organized kind of guy! But most important, Jon is compassionate as a person. So whether you are fit (or not very!), young or rather old, you leave Jon's classes feeling you did a good job with his help.Type your paragraph here.

Jon is fabulous! He’s super organized, with a detailed plan for every class. He’s friendly and encouraging – getting everyone to stay motivated and do their best. He personalizes the work to match people’s needs, goals, and fitness level. He has a wide variety of approaches and techniques that he uses. He keeps it fun so people keep on coming back for more. It’s such a treat to work with him.
