    800 Pounds of Parents

    After losing his father, who weighed 424 lbs at the time of his death, Jonathan’s 370-pound mother decided to take charge in order to avoid the same fate. With the help and inspiration of her son, Jonathan, she has lost over 170 pounds and even learned to ride a bike for the first time—in her sixties.

    As an American Council on Exercise (ACE) Master Trainer, Jonathan Ross is committed to ACE’s goal of ending obesity by 2035. He also knows first-hand the huge impact healthy eating and exercise can have on your quality of life—and on your ability to continue living.

    This knowledge and commitment is why he uses the same care and personal attention with all his clients in helping them reach their fitness goals and milestone. Armed with the inspiration to help them, Jonathan maintains a contagious passion for empowering through fitness.

    That is one of the reasons Jonathan was chosen to be part of the American Council on Exercise’s (ACE) PROfile campaign to highlight everyday fitness trainers with inspirational, interesting and motivational stories to tell about what led them to fitness and what keeps them passionate.

    Jonathan’s parents inspired him. Jonathan will inspire you. Won’t you share his story?
