In 1979 I came to this country as a young inexperienced 19 year old from Kingston Jamaica in the West Indies. I had no clue what my future would be in this country. Growing up on the island I would always hear people say that America is the land of freedom and opportunity, a place where you could be whatever you wanted to be. After living in this great country for the past 37 years, I am a living example that America is truly the land of freedom and opportunity. This freedom and opportunity has allowed me to maximize my ability to the fullest and I’m truly grateful.
Through athletics (Track & Field) and the blessings of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ I’ve been able to acquire a first class education, numerous achievements and experiences that have molded me into the person and coach that I am today. I now know that I was born to coach. My passion and desire to train people has never been greater. Coaching is my sanctuary. a place where I’m totally at peace and free from stress.
I started my business (Training by George) in the summer of 1996, and after 20 years I can honestly say, without a doubt, that I’ve been truly blessed. I specialize in multilateral training for all sports as well as personal fitness training for the average individual. I will never give a client anything but my best, because I refuse to sacrifice the gift that God has given me.
I’ve been coached by some of the best coaches in Track & Field. They trained me, inspired me, and motivated me to reach my full potential. Three of these coaches sparked and encouraged my love for sports and physical fitness, and tremendously influenced my coaching style and training philosophy.
Dennis Whitby: My Sprint Coach at the University of Oregon and a native of England
George Young: An Olympic medallist at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City.
Herb Mckenley: A three-time Jamaican Olympic medallist and world record holder in the sprints and relays.
Regardless of your sport or personal fitness goals, Training by George will help you maximize your potential to be the best that you can be athletically and personally. From being an athlete to becoming a coach as well as a consultant on physical fitness, I have acquired the skill and knowledge necessary to train athletes and provide personal knowledge and techniques for developing an outstanding All Sport Speed & Conditioning training program. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from. Training by George will provide you a caring, nurturing, and positive environment that will allow you to grow tremendously. Good luck and God Bless!
