Client Reviews

Ja’Mar is an outstanding coach! In one session he was able to add 5 meters to my daughter’s discus throw distance. His extreme level of professionalism and ease in teaching is matched only by his unbelievably high level of experience.
What a great find!

Two years out of college I began my masters degree and started training again with Ja’Mar as my coach. I specialized in the hammer throw. In 3 years of undergraduate competition, I improved less than 4 meters. In 9 months he got me to improve 6 meters ON TOP of my best undergraduate PR (+13 meters from where I started having not trained in 2 years) and helped me qualify for my first nationals in the hammer throw. He is an incredible coach who is so knowledgeable, supportive, and knows when to push you.
