My name is Jean Laguerre. I am a certified trainer Master Trainer. I’ve had my personal training business for the last 16 years. I’m also a professional bodybuilder with a competitive career that lasted from 1980 to 2004. I’m a former Teenage New York City champion as well as a former Eastern America champion and a 2x Mr. Natural USA Champion.
Fitness has been my life and my profession. My goal has been to inspire, educate and teach people how to take better care of themselves through education, knowledge and proper training. I’ve taught hundreds from teenagers to adults over 65 years of age. I’m also married 18 years with 3 kids of my own, two in high school and one in elementary school.
The devastation that has hit the United States in terms of drug usage, alcohol and smoking rate is an awakening that everyone has to take notice of to realize that the generation that is to come must be better prepared educationally and physically on taking care of their bodies as well as their minds.
My goal is to make a difference in the lives of the coming generation so they can be better prepared to carry the torch for the future to make this a better world and a better nation. Most teenagers today are not at their healthiest and most active state of physical consciousness and well being due to smoking, drinking, and drugs. I want to help change that. I feel that I can help empower kids to change their ways having been in their position with the exception that I was always driven to become a top athlete starting from the age of 16 years, I was on a quest to become a top natural bodybuilder, despising steroids and performance enhancing drugs for a better and more long-term state of well-being.
At 18, I had won my first Teenage New York title and by the age of 19 I went on to win 8 local state and national teenage titles consecutively and then duplicating it as an adult going on to win the Natural U.S.A. title twice and competing successfully as a natural international competitor. With accomplishments such as placing top 5 in the Universe 3x and 11th in the world and top 3 internationally twice. Given the opportunity, I want to educate and change the direction that our teenagers are going and I have a teen that is equally dedicated to assisting in helping me manifest this change.
