Reflecting on 2 Years


When I set out on my own to open Jada Blitz Training I had no idea what road it would bring me down or where I would be years later. What I did know was that helping others through fitness and wellness was not only my passion, but my calling in life. I had recognized my purpose at a young age and was determined to act on this calling. Stepping out on my own and removing the safety net of working as a personal trainer at a corporate gym was scary, but I knew that I could build and deliver something to the community that was unique and My goal was to create a facility where positivity and motivation are immediately felt when you walk in the doors. A facility where staff is encouraging, welcoming and passionate about helping others reach their goals. A facility where everyone is family. A facility where people can say “I am Jadablitz.”

Marking our two-year anniversary on Transit Road, I have taken some time to reflect on what we have accomplished thus far and two things are clear to me. 1) I couldn’t have done this without an amazing staff supporting me and our vision. 2) Our clientele is what motivates and drives me each and everyday to be better and to continue to improve individually and as a business.

To my staff: You are simply incredible. Each one of you has your own personal journey and a story that got you to where you are today. The passion that you pour into your clients and how you help them achieve their goals through motivation , is exactly what I envisioned my team to deliver.

To our clients: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I have learned something from each and every one of you that has helped me in my own personal growth. I know our job as trainers and instructors is to keep you motivated, but I don’t think it is realized how much you keep us motivated. The energy, drive and discipline that is put forth by so many of you is inspiring. Without you, we wouldn’t be Jada Blitz. Without you, we would be just another gym. Without you, we would be lost.

I cannot wait to continue to grow our community and to continue to help others in their goals and rewriting their stories. We have a lot planned for Jada Blitz Training in the upcoming months and are excited to be able to continue to bring new offerings, services and outlets to you all.

LOVE – Justin Draper

    So glad my daughter works for you Justin. You have helped her to always be her best and supported her dream to be a massage therapist. Hope the future brings a Southtowns location. May God continue to bless you.
