"Jamil was the first person who inspired me to rethink what I accepted as my physical limits. She would make me run fast, lift heavy things, spin hard. And then do it all over again, smiling winningly as she stacked more weight on the barbell. Weights don't intimidate me anymore. Nor do dudes in the gym who slam them onto the ground while they check themselves out in the mirror.  Thanks to her, I'm proud of being strong" - S-M Ishmael.


Working with Jamil in just 3 weeks was the game changer I needed for my fitness journey.  The meal plan is easy to follow and the workout sessions are intense and leave me shaking!” – Miranda B., Phoenix, AZ



“I can honestly say that Jamil is one of the most motivating, charismatic and genuinely nice people I have ever met. You can see and feel how much she loves what she does.

Jamil has been helping me get back into shape after gaining 30+lbs after having my daughter. She not only keeps you motivated through your workout, which is tough, but throughout the week. Reminding you to stay focused, eat right, drink water and get in your daily exercise.

With that said, even with all of Jamil's talent, repertoire of exercises, ability to keep the workouts fun, interesting and difficult, she is not a magician. You still need to do the work and keep focused on your goals. If you are willing to put in the effort, Jamil WILL make sure you achieve them.” - Keysha G., Bronx, NY



“Jamil is truly an awesome personal trainer!! She helped me to lose weight and taught me so much about weight training and exercise. She is tough but it definitely pays off. She will push you to your max and get you to achieve your fitness goal. I am truly grateful to have the opportunity to work with such an amazing woman. She’s a class act.” Ivette Q., Long Island, NY



“Jamil pushes you to be your best and her positive attitude is contagious. I was in my top shape training with her ahead of my wedding and she also trained me through two pregnancies, keeping me in great health and modifying workouts to my ever expanding figure. I cannot recommend her enough!”  Meriden D., Boston, Mass


“Jamil is an absolute pleasure to train with. She's extremely focused and dedicated to your overall well-being. She's NOT the trainer who gossips and, more importantly, she doesn't put you through whatever workout she feels like doing. She customizes workouts for you based on what your personal fitness goals are.”  Allison B., New York, New York


“Jamil is not your average trainer. She is a life trainer and she cares deeply about her clients. Watching Jamil transform through her own health journey is truly inspiring.” Latoya V., East Orange, NJ


"I had no idea when I met Jamil that my entire training life would change. I thought the way I was training (on my own) was okay, but I knew something (or someone) was missing.  My weight never really changed and although I believed my nutrition was clean, Jamil taught me how to eat to train; that food was fuel for my body to work/function properly.  Then, under her astute and very hands-on training style, the definition in my physique began to change within a matter of weeks.  I learned when and how much to eat in order to help my muscles grow but more importantly help them to recover, repair and build.  In a matter of five months, I gained lean muscle, my body fat went from 16% to 8% and felt stronger than ever.  If you want to change your health, get stronger and gain lean muscle, Jamil will definitely take you there. She loves what she does – and it shows!” April P., Brooklyn, NY
