Over 15 years experience As an elite personal trainer in New Zealand, England, and the United States, Sharney has developed a knowledge based on the fundamental principles of sports science. This foundation includes an in-depth understanding of functional kinesiology, exercise physiology, functional anatomy and biomechanics. He has honed his deep understanding of the body to develop personalized programs for each of his clients, helping each one reach his/her goals quickly and effectively. 
 
Studying at New Zealand's premier Otago Institute of Sport, Sharney was one of 30 students selected from thousands of applicants throughout the country. He designed and implemented aerobic, weight and hydrotherapy programs both in and out of the water; developed practical and functional programs for the disabled; rehabilitated national athletes; and fine tuned his knowledge of the fundamentals of health. 
 
Over the last fifteen years, he has learned that maintaining a strong, athletic, lean body not only keeps you healthy, but also empowers you.

He is not a trainer that simply spouts out commands. Sharney believes it is critical that you understand why you are making each movement and how--when done correctly--it will benefit your physique and build your strength. He is dedicated to creating healthy fitness regimes for his clients that give them self-work and confidence to take full control of their lives.

Wayne- Certified Personal Trainer
NCCPT Certified Personal Trainer
CPR and AED certified
NASM Women’s Fitness Specialization
Function Movement Screen Level 1
American Heart Association CPR/AED
Former NCAA Basketball Player


Workout with Wayne heart rate training is 40 minutes of client appropriate intensity. All clients are provided with a Polar heart rate monitor and are able to see their heart rate and total calories burned in real time. The average person has a difficult time pushing themselves hard enough and some trainers push their clients too hard. The Polar technology allows for the perfect work to rest ratio throughout the 40 minute session.

No workout is the same. Clients are put through a well-balanced workout consisting of resistance training and cardiovascular conditioning. A variety of exercises using dumbbells, kettlebells, TRX, and more push each client to new levels of fitness.

All levels of fitness are welcome. My workouts are tailored for body fat reduction, building lean muscle, and improving stamina. Workout with Wayne is perfect for anybody ready to start an effective and efficient fitness program.

My 4 pillars of fitness are Nutrition, Intensity, Consistency, and Efficiency – N.I.C.E. By applying these core principals every client is put in position to reach their fitness goals.  All clients are coached in proper nutrition, healthy eating habits, and receive a personalized flexible nutrition plan.  Learning how to properly fuel the body is just as important as learning how to burn the fuel.

Certified medical technician


A native to Northern Virginia, Jason has been a personal trainer for nearly 20 years. Before he entered the fitness profession, he built a solid foundation and knowledge of fitness and weight training in his own life. Recognizing his passion for fitness and maintaining a healthier lifestyle, Jason stepped into a personal training career. Jason has worked with a range of clients and has shared hundreds of successful journeys. From the teen aiming to build confidence through fitness to the bride preparing for her wedding to the new mom or dad challenged with efficient workouts and parenting to the individual seeking a life-changing weight loss to the person who just wants to “get in shape,” Jason has worked with all ages and all fitness levels.

A key principle to Jason’s training is recognizing that each client is different – goals, views on life balance, motivations, and definitions for what is “fun” in the gym. He works with each of his clients to personalize a workout that will help reach their individual goals ... and he is a partner on the journey. Jason frequently tells his clients, “Everyone needs to find the balance between achieving their goals and enjoying their life. At the end of the day, we need to find what works best for you!”

While Jason pushes for hard work and commitment from his clients, he also aims to have a little fun along the way. In addition to his ongoing training certifications, Jason has supplemented his knowledge and skills with an emergency medical technician certification and worked as a medical technician in both the emergency room and pediatrics department at a local hospital. When he is not in the gym, Jason enjoys time with his family and loves to travel and scuba dive.
