John’s passion for exercise and nutrition is evident by his educational pursuits. Having a B.S. in Exercise Science and a M.S. in Food and Nutrition has allowed him to obtain a solid knowledgeable foundation. While working as a Graduate Assistant, much of his time was focused on obesity research.
At Lindenwood University, Jeremi learned the mechanics behind what he had only before observed. He completed his Certification for Personal Training with the National Academy of Sports Medicine in 2010 and began training clients. He completed an internship with Sports Enhancement Group, LLC, as well.
“My college years taught me the physiology of the body, but I was especially fascinated by the number of scientific formulas that exist to produce specific results. This means that the exercises that you do and how much of them you do, must be personalized to your goal. i.e. toning is not the same work out as weight loss. And not all formulas are appropriate for everyone.
I rely on these formulas to create personalized programs for all my clients. Each new client is a unique fitness level, and fitness levels change as health improves from regular exercise. So it’s critical for my clients to get on the right program from the start to build upon,” maintains Jeremi.
Jeremi’s hands-on experience includes personalized programs for weight loss, physical therapy patients both during and after rehabilitation, high school and college athletes, speed agility, strength training, and teen exercise.

I started my yoga journey with a hot yoga class and instantly fell in love with the energy and how my body felt more flexible. I also felt so much stress relief after each class. After a few years of practicing, I realized yoga meant much more for me than just a hobby. In Russia, I tried many different styles of yoga and I always enjoyed the beauty of breath, power, and energy flow. As soon as I came to the United States, I completed my teacher training at Yoga Six in St. Louis. Now, I enjoy sharing my practice with students of different age groups, professions and levels of flexibility. I love to see how yoga can change people into better versions of themselves. I believe that everyone should have the chance and opportunity to practice yoga.
