Jonathan Ziegler

My passion for fitness started when I took a weight training course during my junior year, I originally wanted to get stronger and faster to help my performance on my high school lacrosse team, but that transcended into a full-blown addiction to pumping iron. Once I had reached college, I declared my major in International Relations with the hope of being an ambassador to the United States, and studied history, philosophy, and mandarin Chinese, and all the while was keeping up with my love affair with the weights. It wasn’t until I studied a semester in Beijing that I realized politics wasn’t for me, and that my destiny was helping people with personal transformations in their health and fitness, just as I had done during the previous 4 years. After returning to the states, I enrolled myself at Vatterott College to pursue my degree in personal fitness training. Their program was highly recommended with a very high success rate after graduation. The fifty week program flew by, and got a job at Ithinkfit, which I had my heart set on before I even started school.  I have worked at Ithinkfit for over 2 years now, and couldn’t picture a better gym to work for. My fellow trainers and I are knowledgeable and eager to help with whatever your goals might be, and the love for being a better version of yourself shared by the members is unparalleled and makes ithinkfit a truly a one of a kind gym. Let me help you achieve your fitness goals through education, motivation, and inspiration!

Reed Knoll

I grew up playing sports and began working out for sport performance reasons. I played football basketball and baseball all through high school and was fortunate enough to continue football after college but due to an extensive leg injury, division 1 collegiate athletics were cut short. While pursuing a double major in Advertising and Marketing and a minor in Spanish, I became a certified personal trainer and realized the need for educated trainers who could actually help people get to the goals they didn’t think they could ever obtain. After graduating I worked at a corporate job but felt like something was missing. Health and fitness have always been a part of my life but sharing that with others and teaching people how to reach their fitness goals have become more of a passion of mine. My expertise is athletic/performance training, strength training, group training and weight loss.
