“Since a very young age I was always intrigued by strong, powerful individuals. I attribute this to my father and grandfather who were able to do things I found amazing. True story: When I was a child I loved to read comic books and as I grew older (and long before the superhero movie craze) my initial goal in life was to be a comic book artist. Unbeknownst to my parents I clipped a Charles Atlas ad from one of my comic books, saved money I earned from mowing lawns and doing other chores and ordered his "muscle building" program. When it arrived I was hooked! I've been very blessed to have been able to provide for my family by doing what I love and can proudly say that I was one of the first full-time, professional trainers in central Arkansas since the late 1980’s!”
Russell is married to Pam and they have three teenage daughters. Russell is also a voracious reader, an amateur movie critic and loves spending time with his family which usually consists of any outdoor activity or preparing for the upcoming sports season.
Russell has a couple of spots that just opened up for clients however they fill quickly so contact Club Fit to check availability! These spots will fill up fast! Just send us a message and we will get you started.
“I enjoy movement. Any kind of movement is playing and enjoyable to me. My wife, Amber, and I will include our daughters and son in as much of our activity as possible. Hiking to the top of Pinnacle is our 3 year old’s favorite! Yes, he hikes all the way to the top! My motto is the absolute key to enjoying life, whether old or young, is looking after your body. I don’t want to wake up and be too old or sick to start something new.”
Jake even makes sure his dog gets exercise and mentioned how he enjoys his “me time” at least twice a day taking his dog Moab on a long walk. The Snowden’s also enjoy walking downtown Little Rock or exploring the Arkansas River Trail and seeing what adventures they can find along the way. “We try to go out on dates whenever we can and love finding a great place in Little Rock to eat. We love the nature in Little Rock. There are so many trails to hike and ride and Pinnacle has always been one of my favorites.” They also like hanging out with their kids at home and just watching them play.
Jake’s flagship fitness program was B3 Bootcamp for women. The six week fitness program for women was such a favorite at the gym that we changed it to every day online during COVID so both women and men could work out from home. Now it’s just called HIIT Bootcamp and it is for beginner and advanced and helps women and men lose weight and gain strength and confidence. The class runs for 30 minutes Monday - Friday at noon and is guaranteed to shred through calories.
in 2016, Jake opened Club Fit. We are in the heart of downtown LR and we love the environment and energy downtown and what we’ve created at Club Fit. “I wanted something that literally could make anyone want to come in and be comfortable here. When you hear the word “community”, our gym IS community. Our trainers, equipment, healthy food and smoothie options, gym layout and bootcamp are all designed for anyone and especially the person on-the-go! Fast. Effective. Efficient. This is our motto and it’s what we are designed around. 30 minute workouts and classes makes exercising easier done than said. I invite you to come check our little community and let us help you get moving!”
If you see Jake at the gym, you can see how much he loves the gym and his Club Fit Family. You may spot him cleaning machines or in the office drinking coffee answering emails on his iPad. Jake still trains at Club Fit too because he loves training clients so much and watching them transform.
“The personal aspect of training is by far my favorite. From one client to the next every single body is so different and at the same time pretty much the same. Everyone has differences but at the end of the day each part pretty mush has the same function. With the differences gives me a chance to be as creative as I can to make sure there is success but done safely. Even the mental aspect of exercise is really cool for me to see in each person or each of my clients. Physical activity is way more of a mental game then what people usually think. If you can break into someone’s mental it gives you better idea of what it’s going to take in the gym. I love that!”
