Jeremy Maclin of the Philadelphia Eagles
Jeremy works out at Power Train Sports Institute in Cherry Hill, NJ during the off-season. He does his actual NFL training here in addition to team-sponsored workouts. The owner and head trainer puts together specific workouts for every athlete who works out at Power Train and Jeremy has benefited immensely from the program. He also regularly attends LA Fitness in Woodbury, NJ. He just attends LA Fitness when he wants to run or play some basketball.
Jeremy says, “I really enjoy the environment and the programs at Power Train. When you wake up in the morning knowing you have a workout scheduled at Power Train, you definitely know that your body is going to be challenged and they are going to help your overall performance. I leave that place with nothing left in the tank and I know everyone that goes there feels the same way.”
Jeremy also adds, “LA Fitness is a local place that I like to go get some fun competition on the basketball courts. I know I need to stay in shape so I go there to do some cardio and run up and down on the basketball courts.”
