Jonathan “Fitness” Jones is 56 years old and is from the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Area. He has over thirty years of experience in the fields of health and fitness.
Jonathan owned and operated a gym located in Oakland, California called “The Body Shop Fitness Center”.
Later, a series of unfortunate events occurred. Jonathan lost the gym and became depressed. To camouflage his feelings, he started overeating and stopped exercising which led to excessive weight gain.
One day, while eating breakfast at a local restaurant, Jonathan ran into an old friend, Kim Reinheimer. Kim taught meditation and deep breathing techniques for over 30 years. She noticed that Jonathan looked stressed out and noticed the weight he had gained. Kim said that she could show him some deep breathing exercises that would help him get rid of the stressful feelings he was experiencing and the extra pounds he had gained.
Jonathan tried the deep breathing exercises she suggested. After the first session, the stressful feelings were gone and his mind was clear. He could not believe the changes! He was thinking more positively and feeling better about himself. Jonathan began to do the deep breathing exercises three times a day. Over the course of two months, he lost over twenty pounds and looked ten years younger. The changes that occurred were unbelievable. These simple deep breathing exercises put his life back on track! After experiencing the mental and physical changes that were occurring in his life, he wanted to learn more.
Kim then introduced Jonathan to Zen Master, Dr. Chung Am. Dr. Am was a Chinese herb doctor and taught meditation and breathing exercises for over 50 years. He showed Jonathan even more deep breathing techniques and taught him that breathing was more than just a breath of life. He helped Jonathan understand how breathing influences your emotions, affects your creativity, improves your energy level, motivation and memory, and can change your body chemistry. The more he learned, the stronger his desire became to improve the quality of his life.
Jonathan named the breathing techniques he’d been practicing Breathing Aerobics®. He wanted to help others. Jonathan began teaching people how to improve the quality of their lives using Breathing Aerobics® on television and radio alike.

"Jonathan and his Breathing Aerobics are amazing! I have had sleep issues ever since I conceived my daughter 16 years ago, and his Breathing Aerobics have really helped me during times that my hormones interrupt my sleep cycle. Now after 16 years, I'm finally getting restful sleep! Additionally, in preparing for my career change as a personal trainer, I had to take a test, which caused massive test anxiety. Though with Jonathan and his Breathing Aerobics I was able to relax and alleviate my anxiety and passed my test and I'm on my way!"

I think we placed it just right, as an "ice breaker" activity to stimulate them, open their brains a bit and get them in the mood for discussing techniques to increase positive morale in the workplace."
