Jonathan’s heritage played an important role in his development as a body worker. His great grandfather practiced as an herbal medicine man in the mountains of Colombia, and when his family moved to the United States, they brought their knowledge and desire to help others with them. His mother, a single parent, achieved a masters degree while raising two children, teaching them the value of education and hard work. Her career in Education inspired Jonathan to seek knowledge and share it freely as to help others achieve their full potential. He was raised in McDonough, GA where he graduated from Eagle’s Landing High School with a full scholarship to Georgia State University.
Jonathan has always had a passion for holistic healthcare, ﬁtness, natural nutrition, learning new skills, trail running, overcoming obstacles (both literally and metaphorically), and persevering to achieve great results. He enjoys the sports of skateboarding, parkour, cycling, rock and tree climbing, kayaking and caving. His interest in adventure sports plays a role in how he trains the body. Everything moves in patterns; replicating and mastering natural patterns will encourage a functional relationship with the body and how it is intended to move.
As a Catalyst Fitness team member, Jonathan’s unique combination of skill sets allows him to provide clients with lasting results, not just temporary relief from tired or aching muscles. He incorporates his knowledge of ﬁtness training with his massage therapy to help you prevent injuries; manage and reduce stress levels; reduce body fat; boost your athletic performance; reduce tension throughout your body while increasing strength; and regain the correct posture and form you require to move more easily and efﬁciently. When the body is in balance, weight loss is a natural side effect. Combine that with Cardio, Balance, Strength, Core, Flexibility, and Proper Nutrition, and you have a recipe for long term healthy living.
