Ricky Jackson, owner of JACK’S CLUB : FITNESS. WELLNESS. BOXING. @ Mosaic Herman Park, is a one-stop fitness spot for strength training and conditioning, personal training, in-home training, and group boot camp training. We were honored to be named the Houston's Awards Program 2014 thru 2017 Houston Personal Trainer of the Year, and we've only improved our services and offerings since then.
Lose weight and improve strength with fitness plans from private personal trainer Ricky Jackson. He provides personal training and conditioning programs for individuals, athletes and sporting teams. Personal Trainer and former Boxing Champion Ricky Jackson has been involved with fitness for the last 30 years. He began his experience as a professional athlete and progressed to a professional head strength and conditioning coach for 18 different sports at the collegiate level. He has developed his personalized training regiments from his extensive education in human performance studies at Texas Southern University and through collaboration with various professional athletic trainers and coaches throughout his professional career.

We now provide strength training and conditioning services that are specific to certain sports, including baseball, softball, distance running, track and field, volleyball, basketball, football, tennis, boxing, golf and soccer. We also train bodybuilders and offer body weight training programs. This sports-specific training ensures that our athletes are training the right muscle groups for peak performance and endurance on "game day." Not many fitness training companies in Houston provides such specialized services.

Over the last year, we've focused even more strongly on meeting our customers' needs, wherever they are. We offer personal training in our gym or in the client's home; some people feel self-conscious at the gym or just don't like the gym environment, so we go to them and help them work out in the comfort and convenience of their own home.

Our personal trainers work with young people, adults and the elderly; our youngest clients are in elementary school, and our oldest clients are in their 70s. We create individualized training plans for each client, assessing their individual abilities and needs to help them improve their strength and fitness safely. It's inspiring to see our elderly clients' commitment to staying fit and healthy! We also offer small-group personal training sessions, so friends or family members can work out together, or new arrival can receive personal training at a more affordable price -- and perhaps meet some new friends in the process.

As the founder of JACK’S FITNESS & WELLNESS CLUB/BOXING, I feel proud that my company is helping hundreds of Houston locals to stay fit and healthy. We're constantly innovating and bringing the latest science and equipment into the gym, but the basics remain the same -- to improve your fitness and strength, you need to put in some hard work. My staff and I are there to motivate our customers to push themselves a little further every time they work out. After more than 30 years as a professional athlete and collegiate and professional strength and conditioning coach, you'd think I'd be sick of all things fitness. Instead, I feel like the luckiest man in the world watching my clients achieve new personal bests every day.

As a humanitarian, Ricky Jackson has demonstrated an altruistic attitude by donating his time and energy to incalculable community organizations. He was awarded the Positive Influential African American Male Award and the Young Black Achiever Award. Former city of Houston Mayor Bob Lanier recognized him with a "Ricky Jackson Day" proclamation. Former city councilman Orlando Sanchez also presented him with a certificate of appreciation for the outstanding accomplishment of receiving the highest award attainable from the state of Texas in heavyweight boxing.

With Ricky's many years of collegiate and professional strength and conditioning coaching and personal training, he has developed regimens that will push the limits on the physical capability of each individual he trains through fitness. Getting each client to his or her own optimal fitness level in the shortest period of time is always Ricky's goal and objective.

Ricky's boxing training programs are designed to teach the fundamental skills of the sweet science of boxing, such as jabbing, combinations, boxing stance, shadow boxing techniques, hand-pad drills, along with heavy bag and speed bag exercises. Boxing is the one of the best fitness-related active for both youth and adults to develop balance and coordination and improve your strength and conditioning deficits.

His experiences are as follows:

* Memorial Herman Wellness Center Certified Personal Trainer
* Member of National Strength and Conditioning Association NSCA
* Member of Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association CSCCA

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT RICKY:
It’s only been a month, but I already feel the difference and improvement in my fitness level. Ricky is personable but the sessions can be intense, which is a good thing to me. He also keeps you going with a good balance of cardio, resistance training, and boxing which keeps things from becoming tedious. He makes sure you don't overexert yourself, but still keeps it challenging and progressive. I would highly recommend Ricky as a trainer.

I'm a healthcare professional, and though my personal health has always been a priority to me, a hectic personal life had begun to interfere with maintaining my physical health and endurance. I sought a personal trainer that I felt was experienced, and could quickly re-establish a healthy lifestyle for me. I was blessed to find Ricky Jackson. He is knowledgeable about diet and fitness. He quickly trained muscle groups, and worked to increase my strength and endurance. My overall fitness has improved tremendously, quickly, under his direction. The sessions were always versatile, never boring. He will make you sweat, and push limits. With his expertise, you should quickly reach your fitness goals. Rachel F. on October 11, 2015 - 5/5 stars

Ricky is not only a talented PT but also a truly nice guy. He comes backed by a very impressive CV and a lengthy client list. It's also beyond mentally satisfying (great cardio and strength exercise as well) to take some jabs at the heavy or the speed bag. Hank's gym is a welcome change from the slate of chain clubs. Old fashioned and no nonsense yet fully equipped and beyond welcoming. Susan M (Los Angeles, CA and part time - Houston, TX) Susan m. on September 14, 2015-4/5 stars
Ricky Jackson is an outstanding trainer and his unique approach which mixes in boxing is outstanding.

It's been a week since I've begun training with Ricky and I already feel the difference. I've set my long term goal for my fitness and Ricky is doing everything in his power to push and motivate me. His workouts are intense, but he keeps you going at a good rhythm. He makes sure you don't overexert yourself, but still makes sure you are pushing your limits. I would highly recommend Ricky to any one at any fitness level.

A true professional! Ricky personalized my program that enabled my rehab from surgery and then segued into advancing my physical fitness. More importantly he provided motivation through data-driven program planning, workout variety, positive coaching while inducing pain that was actually rewarding and produced results!
He has a presence and an attitude that just makes you want to be better and work harder!
The ultimate trainer!
Thanks
Ricky

Rick has lowered my body fat considerably and has helped me with my conditioning to a level i did not think was possible. He is very explanatory to help you understand why he approaches things in the way he does. His approach and philosophy helped me to reach my goals in a very short time frame while keeping it fun.

I have been training with Ricky Jackson -- he has just the right balance of pushing, supporting, humoring me to make it work. He knows what he is doing and he gets results. Would recommend to anyone that is motivated and ready to work.

Ricky took me from a couch potato (who could barely make it through my first training session) to a fit and motivated regular at the gym. I lost pounds and inches, and I gained strength, endurance and confidence. He challenged and encouraged me at each step. I highly recommend Ricky for training at any level. Whether you're a beginner or a star athlete, he can help you reach your fitness goals.

Ricky, the fitness saves my life. The doctors said had I not been in such great shape I may have died. Two cysts and my uterus wall finally ruptured and blood and fluid went into my abdomen and pelvic cavity. Had I not been so fit my body would not have been able to make it. I had emergency surgery and the endometriosis had taken over everything and grown into my spine and pelvic ligaments, colon and organs. No wonder I was hurting so badly. Anyway after I recover in 6 weeks I should be way better and in no pain and able to get into the best shape ever. Thanks for training me. It literally saved my life!

Mr. Ricky is AWESOME!!! He keeps his clients focused in their goal through positive motivation and encouragement. He has a high level of knowledge in regards to the client he is working with. He knows what he is teaching. He mixes different exercises together including BOXING which makes it more fun( you won't get bored at all :). We all have different needs when it comes to fitness and Mr. Ricky is the right trainer who can help us to reach the needs or desired goals.

Ricky is a very personable, professional and reliable personal trainer who is helping me achieve my goals of long term weight loss and strength training. He tailors fitness regimes to the individual and varies the routine on a weekly basis so it never becomes tedious. I highly recommend Ricky if you are serious about getting fit and want a trainer who will go that extra mile to help you reach your goals.

Ricky is great! My boyfriend and I have been doing group in home training (so convenient) with Ricky 2-3 times a week for the past few months and I've really noticed a difference in my overall fitness and strength. His scheduling is very flexible so just about anytime I want to work out, he's available.
====================================================================
Ricky's style is very different than working out alone. He works the whole body using a mixture of approaches that keeps me from getting bored or falling into a rut. Also, I LOVE the boxing.

Also, Ricky's a nice guy. But be warned: he's tough. The first month I felt like I wanted to throw up - and that was just after the warm up!

I'd highly recommend Ricky for anyone looking to increase strength and muscle tone as well as cardio training and conditioning.

Just through luck I found Ricky via a Google search and I am so glad that I did. I have worked out off and on over the past several years but wanted to get back being the best I could be. Ricky has been the great getting me to give my all, and the results I have gotten in just a few months really show it. Ricky takes great pride in his profession and is a real pleasure to work with, now my wife has also seen the light and she is working out with us as well. There is no way I would be able to attain what I have to date without Ricky's help, he is worth every penny. Thanks!!

Ricky is excellent. He is knowledgeable and very professional in his training. Ricky has the experience to draw upon so he can design a workout program that fits my exact needs. I have been working out with Ricky for 8 months now and am completely satisfied. I have worked out with numerous other personal trainers but I have never been as well trained as I am with Ricky. I HIGHLY recommend Ricky.
