At an early age, Casey learned the importance of respecting the body, not only on the outside but how the body was handled internally as well.
Casey watched his father prepare meals and recover from countless body building competitions. This guidance helped Casey plan weekly workouts in advance and see the dedication through every exercise performed. His father inspired him in many ways even Casey couldn’t understand at the time but now appreciates.
"When he was sticking to this regiment, he had a certain glow about him, the everlasting happiness was almost contagious which made me want to follow the same steps."
Fast forwarding to Casey's early 20’s, he finally met his father's level. Working out at the gym is where Casey finds to be the happiest. Casey consistently adapts to new workout routines from fitness legends and continues to educate himself as a personal trainer by reading endless articles on rehabilitation, nutrition and supplementation. In finding new ways to push the body he pushes a new type knowledge on friends, whether they heard it or not.
Casey turned his passion into a career, and over time he discovered not only the love for educating people but enjoyment sparking motivation on individuals thus adding fuel to the fire.
Initially, Crunch Fitness of San Francisco was where Casey applied his knowledge obtained from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Right from the start, he was fortunate enough to build a strong clientele base exposing him to a variety of people of all ages with goals of fat loss, performance gains, body sculpting, rehabilitation due to injury/surgery, new/innovative workouts and clients needing professional accountability.
Casey believes fitness should be fun and everybody should find ways to achieve their goals without dreading the process of getting there.
Now Casey has progressed his career to the next level by joining the knowledgeable fitness professionals with us at Jigalin Fitness.

In July, we had the opportunity to participate in the Spartan "sprint" Race at AT&T ballpark. After blasting past steps among steps (which was no walk in the park), thankfully Lyon St. stairs made for a helpful component of our training regime. If we combine the tools at the gym plus increase the amount of cardio, preparation for our next challenge, the SF Urbanathlon, will be no sweat in the city!
This event has a Sprint (3 mile, 7 obstacle) or a Classic (11 mile, 14 obstacle) race looping just past Fort Mason. We believe everyone will enjoy putting themselves to the test. We plan to coordinate teams/waves of 5 according to individual running pace. We have approximately 3 months until race day so it's time to get crackin'.
Leading up to this exciting competition, we will start to increase our weekly running program and record of the average pace. Below is an example for "Long Run" Sundays:
September 6th - 1 mile
September 13th - 2 miles
September 20th - 3 miles
September 27th - 4 miles
October 4th - 5 miles
October 11th - 6 miles
October 18th - 7 miles
October 25th - 8 miles
November 1st - 9 miles
November 8th - 10 miles
November 15th - 11 miles
November 22nd - Race Day!!
Be sure to add a "short run" and "recovery run" during the week as well!
For example: October 27th - 5 miles & 29th - 4 miles.
Now take a deep breath and have fun because fitness is fun!

What do you like most about being a Personal Trainer?
I love helping clients feel 17lbs lighter, drop 2 dress sizes smaller and, if there’s time, drop down and give me “twenty”.
Foam rolling then strengthening the core is a great way to retrain overused muscles, correct posture and relieve pain/tension due to work related activities.
Power Greens. Dark leafy greens go well into a smoothie too!!

We are not what we shall be but we are growing toward it; the process is not yet finished but it is going on; this is not the end but it is the road. All does not yet gleam in glory but all is being purified.” -- MARTIN LUTHER
