Jared Sabin
Personal Trainer

My name is Jared Sabin, and I’ve been going to the Aspen Hill Club for what feels like forever. I joined the gym when I was 6 months old, and spent a lot of time in childminding as a kid, and then on the basketball court which was my biggest passion throughout high school. When I got to college I knew I needed a part time job, and I figured there was no better place to work than the gym I grew up in. I had been lifting weights for over 5 years at this point, and I felt like I had a lot of knowledge I could share, especially with kids trying to excel in sports like basketball, football and tennis. My training philosophy is to train everybody as if they are a kid, focusing specifically on functional movements and exercises that you will actually enjoy. If you’re looking for a trainer who will push you while still keeping things fun, I am the perfect match!

Tony is very passionate about fitness and loves to help others achieve their fitness goals. He has experience working with the youth, athletes, and the elderly.
