Here’s what people are saying about PhillyFIT!

Yvonne Ferguson, Fergie’s FIT Training
“Jami is a fantastic business owner and marketing Professional. She has been very instrumental in making my business and the varied services that I provide, more visible to a wider audience. Thank you jami, you are a beacon in the business world!”

Dean “Deano” Fromkin, Owner/Entrepreneur, Fromkin’s Inc
“It is my honor and pleasure to write a testimonial for Jami and the PhillyFIT publication. I have known Jami since she was about 18 years old. We have had a wonderful personal and business relationship throughout the many years. During the early years of our friendship, Jami worked part-time for a company which I owned and she was a very diligent, completely trustworthy dedicated and tenacious employee. How many female employees do you know of who insist upon working up to the last hours of their pregnancy, finish their assigned work task, and then drive themselves to the hospital to delivery the baby! This awesome lady is one dedicated team player! As we matured in our respective business careers we have had a mutually benefitual working relationship. Jami is a genuine person…what you see is what you get. She has always strived very hard to meet the challenges of both working mom and reputable business owner. She conducts herself in a most professional manner and has an extremely high positive energy level. During the 15+ years that I was the owner of Bucks Bagels located in the Philadelphia area, there were many occasions when we had the opportunity to partner together on Philly Bash events. Despite relocating to Southern Florida, Jami and I remain in contact. We continue to have mutual admiration and respect for each other regarding our accomplishments in both our personal lives and business endeavors.”

LaVerne PriceClient (Workout-a-thon)
“I am a faithful reader of PhillyFit Magazine and participant in the Workout-a-thons. Jami publishes an informative FREE Magazine, PhillyFit Magazine. It is the only publication that I will make a special trip to the store to get a hard copy. Unlike other fitness magazines that have the same basic articles each month, the topics are always current and engaging. The PhillyFIT Bash and Workout-a-thons are also great. I recently had the pleasure of being on both sides of the event as a participant and an instructor. The amount of detail that goes into this event is unbelievable. Both the magazine and the events are planned and executed with the reader and participant as the focus.”

Faust RuggieroExecutive Director, Phillies Fan Central
“In a time when nutritional experts predict a 30% increase in obesity, Jami’s approach is well rounded, and targets the whole person. This is what sets it apart from so many other approaches. Her knowledge bases are sound, and she communicates them passionately, with enthusiasm, in a fashion that is individually goal oriented, and realistic. Never omitted from the approach is the personal, humanistic touch. Never lost, is a genuine focus on those who come to depend on her and her program. She is personable, and caring. She is also helping to dispel many of the myths which surround topics line veganism, and a balance in life. To me, a practicing vegan for over 30 years, this is so refreshing. Jami is committed, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. Without reservation, she has my recommendation as a truly professional practitioner.
