Jake Wagner

ACE Certified Personal Trainer

B.S. Bachelor's Degree - Exercise Science University of Nebraska

About Jake

Jake has had a passion for health and wellness for the majority of his life. He grew up playing just about every sport but particularly enjoyed playing football and powerlifting. Thanks to his three brothers Jake developed a love for weight lifting and bodybuilding. 

Jake decided to take that passion and knowledge to The University of Nebraska, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in exercise science. After graduating from UNO, Jake worked for Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital for 3 years. While there, Jake worked with a very broad range of people of all situations and ages (children to older adults) and enjoyed being the motivational influence to encourage them in their recovery. Jake worked with people rehabbing from a stroke, getting people back to sports after a car accident, or just helping to manage everyday aches & pains.

While in college, Jake’s internship at Hillcrest Health Services helped him discover how much he enjoys working with the active aging population. He developed valuable experience working with the 50+ age group and continues to enhance his knowledge in this area.

Jake got into personal training to help people extend their quality of life. His experience at Madonna and Hillcrest helps him to focus on creating innovative programs to help everyone reach their goals. He has experience working with men and women of all ages from athletes, post-rehab, to all around general fitness goals.
