Growing up in South Philadelphia, JD was no different from any other kid. The middle of three siblings, JD filled his days playing wiffle ball and living for Sundays when his beloved Eagles would take center stage. His love of sports in his youth set the ground work for a career in the fitness industry. Driven to succeed, his work ethic in his first years in the workforce seemed to curb his interest in chasing girls-that is, of course, until he started working as a personal trainer. After years in the business, and always having a knack for storytelling, JD has decided to share these stories with the world.
