- Ken Blackburn, Director of Operations for IKFF
"Jay Simon is an amazing strength and conditioning coach whose education in the field is only surpassed by his passion for inspiring others. I do not know of many fitness trainers in the industry with as many years wrestling experience. The combination of Jay's impressive wrestling background, Brazilian ju-jitsu training and high-level kettlebell skill allows him to bring together one of the most well rounded conditioning classes in the country. This class is the well-respected "Ruckus 101".
If you have a chance to get your "Ruckus" on, TAKE IT!"

As a baby-boomer and a single parent of a very active five-year-old son, I have a real incentive to be in shape.
Jay Simon’s Functional Interval Training program is a complete exercise solution. Jay integrates joint mobility, body weight exercises and kettle bells in a progressive program for students at every fitness level.
Jay is a former competitive athlete who shares his vast knowledge and experience in an articulate manner that is patient, supportive and motivational. While every session is different, each one is challenging, fun and rewarding. Jay makes a special effort to explain how every exercise personally benefits you in the context of your life. I look forward to each workout.
For anyone who is looking to improve their strength, conditioning, balance and coordination for a lifetime of health and well-being, Jay Simon delivers!

I never thought I would enjoy going to the gym; that is until I started Jay’s class. I was the type of person that would buy gym memberships, go a couple of times, see no results, and stop going. However, Jay’s class is different. You do not have to be in shape or an athlete to excel in the class, because your workout is personalized and everyone works at their own pace and level. So far I have lost over 20 pounds and my BMI has decreased by 10%. Not only do I feel great about myself, but I am on my way to living a healthier lifestyle.
When people ask me how I lost so much weight so quickly, I tell them eat right and try Jay’s class! You do not need a special cocktail or weight loss drugs…you need RUCKUS 101! The class will challenge you and allow you to see what your body is capable of. You will sweat like never before. You will have classmates and a trainer that will keep you motivated. You will see your body change before your eyes. You will love attending the class! Jay really does care; he motivates you; he pushes you to your max; and most importantly, you see the results within a couple of weeks if you go consistently. Thanks Jay for pushing me to reach my weight loss and fitness goals- even when I thought I couldn’t achieve them. You are truly gifted.

"Jay is one of the most talented and knowledgeable fitness instructors I have met. As a student of his, he has an uncanny ability to meld fun with fitness, without selling you short on the workout in which he will lead you. No two workouts with Jay are the same and the workouts never fail to make you break a sweat and make you feel like you've expended 150% of your energy in just a short amount of time. The Ruckus program is particularly noteworthy for providing a high-level workout for all fitness levels. For me, the program was the ideal fitness program to help me lose fat, build strength, and get in the best shape of my life."

I may have been skeptical about kettle bells when I went to see Jay, but after my very first session, I was convinced. Jay was able to design a workout with my fitness goals, my body type, and my personal strengths and weaknesses in mind. He gave me unbroken personal attention and, at the same time, gave me tips on a number of ways to improve my overall health, including nutritious eating. As a woman, I felt personally comfortable and athletically challenged during the entire training, and I would highly recommend Jay to any woman - or man - who want a rewarding, high-quality workout.
I have been going to Ruckus 101 for the past few months, and in that time have seen a marked improvement in my fitness, strength, and energy (including losing about 25 pounds). When I entered the program I was sedentary at an office job and had not done a sustained exercise program since high school. Unlike other programs that will over work you initially and result in attrition, Jay does a great job of teaching techniques and exercises that are accessible to all levels of experience – and builds on a progression. The program also offers a level of individual instruction that is hard to find in other fitness programs. The end result is a program that is great for your health that you can stick with. I would highly recommend the Ruckus 101 program to anyone looking to improve their lives, and get healthy.
