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.

Ever wonder how hard you're actually working out in the gym or during outdoor bootcamps? Most of us measure our intensity from the amount of weight we lift, reps we perform, sets we complete, respirations we take or even the sweat we perspire. Now, with our group exercise classes in the city, you're visually able to see how intense the workout actually is, wearing a heart rate monitor. Prior to the first training session, we find the right target training zone for you (burning the most fat) and get the best out of your group workout! Following the best training session in San Francisco, the amount calories burned is then analyzed and shared to everybody (which is pretty cool). Jump-in on the best group class, located in the Marina of San Francisco, to get in best shape and see what's up (your heart rate)!
