Hi. I'm Patrick Henigan.
I am a nationally certified (ACSM, FMS L2) and published personal trainer. I am one of the owners and the lead trainer at Jacksonville Fitness Academy.
I view fitness differently than most other trainers, because my path to fitness was much different.
From my late teens to mid 20s I was an opiate addict. I was scrawny, unhealthy and unhappy. Through vigorous physical and spiritual discipline I transformed my body, my mind and my life. I learned to push myself so I could live my life to its full potential.
I am an incredibly experienced, knowledgeable and sought after Strength and Conditioning Coach.
I have nearly a decade of experience training people like SNL Cast members, MLS players and Fortune 500 CEOs but I prefer to bring my brand of pain free performance training to people just like you. There is a proper way to train that will repair your body, while also pushing it to a higher level.
You are different and unique. Your training should reflect that. I will provide you with all the tools, experience, and knowledge you need to reach your goals.
I've been seen in:
I know how frustrating it can be when you're unhappy with your body.
I've been there.
You want to change but you don't know how. You've tried every diet under the sun and a million workout plans but NOTHING STICKS. You make a little progress, only for your weight to boomerang back to where you started.
To build lasting change you need hard work, patience and dedication. Most importantly you need a long term plan broken down into achievable short term goals. I will help you develop a devastating work ethic by building your plan step by step, and ensuring that you have the foundational skills and strength needed to change your body permanently. I will teach you how to exercise to hit your goals, and I will teach you how to eat without sacrificing most of your favorite foods.
There is no one size fits all fitness or nutrition program. My job is to find out what works for you. With an emphasis on your goals, your likes and your lifestyles I will build you a complete exercise and nutrition program.
I will teach you how to look good and get stronger without having to sacrifice your lifestyle.
