Why I Started PTI Tucson
My name is Craig Jackson and I am the owner of the Personal Training Institute of Tucson.
I am a former paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division that lost his way and in 2008 I reached 320 pound which my 6′ frame did not carry well. I put myself into Type 2 diabetes and was physically pfft. I could not go longer than 12 minutes on an elliptical. That is mind blowing for a former fit paratrooper. I made a decision to change my life. I started eating better (no specific diet), I hired a trainer to help me with my strength training and I kept at my cardio. I dropped over 100 pounds in a year. I have since completed 9 half marathons, 1 full marathon and numerous other races. I am no longer taking any medicine for diabetes. I am an active hiker and play racquetball. I am back to living life again. I became a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer.
Throughout this transformation people asked me what I was taking. I told them it was diet and exercise. (I wished I had a sexier answer!) That made me think…although there are nutrition centers and gyms here in Tucson; I was unaware of any place that combined one-on-one personal training with having a personal nutritionist under one roof. That is when I discovered PTI and brought it to the Tucson market.
