Jeremiah Forster, NASM Elite Trainer

Bio

Thank you for visiting my ShareCare page.

I have been a fitness professional for close to 20 years and a virtual fitness coach for over 10 years.  I am a certified NASM trainer with advanced specializations in corrective exercise, performance enhancement and weight management.

I have worked with clients in a gym setting since becoming a professional at the age of 18.  In my mid 20's I began managing health clubs, fitness professionals and doing something I call training trainers!  A little over 10 years ago I started working as a virtual fitness coach for a supplement company helping clients via fax, email and phone set up fitness programs.  5 years ago my wife and I launched our own virtual fitness company (Forster Fitness) in which we coached people via our website and in person.  

I started competing as a bodybuilder by the age of 17 and by the age of 23 I won the state title in my weight class in Ohio.  18 months later I placed 6th at the 2000 NPC Nationals as a heavyweight.  One year later in preparation for the Nationals I had a major pec tear and never was same.

About 6 years ago I made a decision to change my fitness career and became NASM certified.  As they say the rest is history and hold many advanced NASM certifications and am responsible for successfully training close to 100 individuals who wanted to become a fitness professionals.  All of these professionals are NASM certified.

My wife is a wonderful woman who I am madly in love with.  We have 3 children, Aenea (8), Karis (4) & Rocky (2).  We live in Northern Kentucky and live a life that we love.  My wife and I also have a fitness ministry TEAM NWA that we are extremely passionate about. 

I have worked and successfully virtually coached hundreds of people and I hope I get the opportunity to help you.
