"This was my first time trying Parkour and it was a really great experience! Jesse was a great instructor and he modified parts of the class so that it wouldn't be too difficult. I was definitely pushed and challenged, but nothing felt impossible. If there was a movement I was unable to do, Jesse told me how to substitute it with something else. Jesse and the rest of the class were extremely friendly, encouraging and motivating. I 100% would recommend this class to anyone that wants to try Parkour!"

"Jesse teaches my 11 y.o. son Parkour and he's great! He is very personable, very dedicated to the art of Parkour and great with my son. I am so glad we found him. He has a great amount of patience and is very encouraging. He allows my son go at his own pace and does not rush him to learn. Always showed up on time at designated meeting spot. Showed us lots of different places to practice. Taught my son the story behind Parkour also. Jesse is definately not someone who does Parkour just because of the popularity, he truly respects the art of it. He is VERY dedicated to Parkour. I would recommend him highly as a teacher for children. "

"I take Jesse's Parkour conditioning class once a week. Jesse has a peaceful but firm style and is always able to push the class to our boundaries without going over the line. As a teacher, he is attentive, helpful, intuitive, and effective. As a person, I would trust him with my life. In my two short months in the class, my strength, precision, and confidence has increased threefold. Recommended."

"One of the most dedicated-to-others New York Parkour instructor I have come across. Jesse gives you workouts that everybody is capable of doing and he pushes you to your limit.. and then past your limit. At first I was hesitant to try, thinking that it would just be a bunch of advanced guys and I wouldn't be able to keep up. Well, that was not the case, I showed up and if there was something in particular I couldn't do, Jesse modified it to suit my abilities. I went to gyms for years and the biggest improvement I have ever seen on my body has been since I started Midweek Get Strong Sessions and Midweek Technique about a year ago. Also with the midweek crew, it doesn't feel like an instructor telling you what to do, since Jesse himself also does all of the workouts with you, it feels more like a community and a friendship amongst all involved. Highly recommended. "

"Jesse is an extremely encouraging and creative instructor. I really enjoy his workouts on Tuesday evenings. They're never the same, and I always feel spent afterwards. Jesse helps push people past where they're comfortable without being overwhelming. They are definitely a great boost to my strength, agility, movement and general Parkour ability."

"I started out with the same fears most beginners probably do: I had a fear that I wasn't adequately fit enough even for a beginner's course or that I will be the only one failing to grasp the techniques. My boyfriend and I took our first lesson with Jesse with no knowledge and left with more confidence and excitement about continuing. I can honestly say that Jesse exceeded both of our expectations. He was extremely knowledgeable of the sport and was able to adapt his lesson based on our level of fitness and what we wanted to learn. Our workout was a small private lesson with just myself and my boyfriend (and an unexpected third: little boy who joined in after he saw us running around and climbing a fence) in Central Park. We began with some warm up exercises and then moved to the basics of movement and balance. Then, when we got the hang of that, we moved on to learning how to jump/vault over a fence. This seemed easy enough, but I had my own fears of inadequacy and falling. However, both Jesse and my partner were supportive and patient. Once I've succeeded, we moved onto new techniques, and my confidence in my abilities has risen with each new thing I learned. Even when I wasn't able to vault over the fence the way I had hoped to, Jesse would explain why what I did wasn't wrong; that is, in parkour there are no "right" or "wrong" ways to do something, there's only doing something without breaking momentum. Needless to say, everyone's reviews about his personality, teaching abilities, and technique are very accurate. I will definitely be reaching out to Jesse again for another lesson. "

"I had already started training parkour when I first met Jesse. Or at least, I thought I had. My first training session with him literally changed my life. I had never, and to this day have never, gone through a harder workout - physically or emotionally. And throughout the entire thing, Jesse knew exactly how to encourage each person. Some people he left alone, some people he yelled at, some people he gently encouraged, other people he looked at, and nodded in approval. Every person made it through that workout, even though none of us thought we would. And after, we realized that we were a lot stronger than we thought we could ever be."

"I can't recommend Jesse enough! He really is one of the best Parkour instructors in the greater NYC area! When I first started, I knew nothing about Parkour and was afraid of hurting myself. Thanks to Jesse, my fears are gone and Parkour has become one of my favorite activities - I practice it almost every day. In addition to being a great instructor at Parkour technique, Jesse also teaches the strength and conditioning necessary for Parkour. Everyone should learn Parkour, and Jesse is the right person to teach it!"
