Without a doubt, the reason for where I am in my life is largely shaped by Dr. Jack Barnathan. From the moment I met Dr. Barnathan almost 15 years ago; his steady guidance, teachings, support, and inspiration has impacted the course of my life profoundly. I have benefited immensely in both my athletic and business professional careers.
As a long distance runner, Dr Barnathan’s coaching has helped me perform stronger and consistently with every race I completed – I earned personal records each time, including a third finish ranking in my age group at the 2014 Montreal Marathon.

On a business level, Dr. Jack has mentored me on how to competitively distinguish myself from others. In so doing, I learned how to climb the corporate ladder, as a leader. My sense of style in interpersonal business relationships is the result of attending and learning tremendously from Dr. Barnathan’s teachings.

It is incredibly rare for a person to possess both unparallel business acumen and be renowned also as a leading authority in the arena on health/fitness. I’m honored to know Dr. Barnathan; he is the unique individual that seamlessly fits this profile.
— Tanya Di Paolo CPA, CMA Corporate Controller | Consultant
Dr. Jack has been a mentor of mine since 2002 when I became certified in Personal Training.

You have inspired me to be a better version of me and have always believed I could do more, be more and deliver the best of myself to others.

Working with you over the years has been life-changing. And now, I am taking it to the “higher ground” with your guidance and support. Thank from the bottom of my heart.

From the first day I meet Dr. Jack my life changed! His knowledge and passion just seeps through him with excitement. He always had me at the end of my seat bobbing my head all day to everything he had to say.

After attending a couple of seminars my husband and I decided to open our own private fitness center. Dr. Jack has helped us in more ways than he could ever imagine before and after we opened. With his guidance of training, fitness, nutrition, our business consultations with him, acceptance and appreciation of this industry we were able to open our doors loud and proud for our community. Plus with his guidance we were booked after only being opened for a few months!

But even after opening our doors he has always been there for us with his love and support. Our consults are the most amazing experience with Dr. Jack. Thank you Dr. Jack for being an inspiring model for all of us worldwide! B-Xtreme Fitness Pro Center, Ltd family proudly and gladly thank you and you are always welcome in our home!

Motivating and innovative are the two words which come to my mind after attending Dr. Jack’s seminar. If you are looking for that extra “push” in your training skills, or even just to further your education, this is- bottom line- the place to be.
— Kristie Devries
Dr. Jack has the rare passion and ability to inspire all he comes across. In a time when individuals are merely existing he is truly living and breathing all that he preaches. To say that Dr. Jack changed my life is an understatement. He taught me how to live. To focus on the positive aspects of life and to let go of the negatives, which hold us all back. Not to live life with blinders on, afraid to make eye contact or say hi to others because were in a rush, but to stop and smell the roses every now and then. To interact and learn from all we come across. Through these life lessons I’ve found my true calling and words can’t even express how incredible a feeling that is. I owe him everything and am honored to have met him and call myself a Fitness Pro.

Dr. Jack’s workshops and one-on-one consultations have made a huge impact in my work. As both a fitness trainer and a competitive figure athlete, Dr. Jack has redefined the way I think about fitness concepts and training.

Dr. Jack knows how to break down the material making it easily understandable and relatable, and his teaching style is truly inspiring. His enthusiasm is contagious, and he makes me excited to get out there and help as many people as I can so they can have more energy and a better quality of life. Three cheers for Dr. Jack Barnathan!

An inspiring, motivating, positive, fun, and helpful person to name just a few things about him. He has helped motivate me, keep me on top of my own business and field, keeps me reaching for new heights and goals, brings me happiness every time we talk on the phone, and is such a positive influence to be around.

His energy just grabs a hold of you and makes you want to learn more not only about the health profession, but also yourself. He brings out the best in you with his coaching and consulting experience, and by giving yourself this extra gift and push of his skills, you can not fail.

He is truly an amazing person, good soul, and happy human being. I am so thankful that I got to meet him through the ISSA, and since have furthered my career with him, and also my own self. He will help you succeed by making you look deep into yourself and find what really motivates you in life, and bring those goals out of you to help you become successful!

When I met Dr. Jack at my first ISSA seminar, I thought, “This man is Great!” I was drawn to his science driven teaching style and his obvious passion for helping others achieve their goals. Since 2002, I have attended as many of his workshops and seminars as possible. Throughout all of my schooling and different teachers, not one has made such an impact as Dr. Jack. Few people have the wealth of knowledge in science, business and real life experience he holds. Although he only appears to be one man, his combination of knowledge, skills and talents have made him into an unparalleled, successful team of people in the Health and Fitness Industry.

I opened my own gym, Pinnacle Fitness, in 2008. Still, I asked myself what I could do to take it to the next level. I knew without hesitation what I needed: I called his Executive Director Nicole Bruno and asked her, “How can I get Dr. Jack to Pinnacle?” In the beginning of 2010, I began consulting with Dr. Jack and the results have been incredible, terrific and real. More importantly, our collaborations are still continuing.

Dr. Jack has helped me tremendously, both personally and professionally. He is a great man with a love for teaching and helping others that is unrivaled. Thank you very much Dr. Jack for being YOU!
— Jamie & Laura Bodner, Owners of Pinnacle Fitness

His message is so powerful and his gift to teach, motivate and inspire is extraordinary. I am thrilled to be part of his Master of Fitness Design Workshop this January 2013. I’m ready for a life-changing experience. Thanks Dr. Jack for all that you do!

Dr. Jack set the foundation to my career path in the fitness industry. When I lacked the confidence in myself Dr. Jack was there telling I was worth it and I had a fire inside me. I cherish him as my mentor, coach and friend. I have shared every success with him and he gets even more excited than I do, if that is even possible! He has a way with words and encouragement that surpasses anyone I know.
Dr. Jack, I would be lost without you. I am thankful to have you in my life everyday.
— Maura Garner, Certified Fitness Trainer
