Who Is JKConditioning

JKConditioning is a private fitness training facility located in the centre of St. John’s, NL. We offer personal and small group training for general fitness enthusiasts, athletes and everyone in between. We are client-focused and results driven. Exercise programs are tailored to the individual – cookie-cutter programs are not acceptable at optimizing your results, so we don’t use them. We only prescribe healthy yet realistic strategies to help you achieve your health and fitness goals – we are not fans of quick fixes because they don’t teach sustainable lifestyle behaviours. Sure a drastic plan of attack will yield drastic results, but it doesn’t fit inside our strength and conditioning philosophy.

Jon-Erik Kawamoto founded JKConditioning in 2006 in Burnaby, BC. Jon has been physically active his entire life and his passion is sharing the experiences of clients who succeed in achieving their health and fitness goals. Jon’s goal with JKConditioning is to provide people and athletes with the highest quality strength and conditioning coaching while giving clients an enjoyable and memorable fitness experience.


The Not-class “Class”

Training sessions at JKConditioning can be 1-on-1, 1-on-2 or 1-on-3. “Class” size can vary and is booked on a first-come first-serve basis. “Classes” at JKConditioning are not classes in the traditional sense because each individual will perform his/her own uniquely designed workout routine. This allows clients of different abilities to “workout” together in an intimately coached setting. This motivational environment will always be guided by a coach to keep you on track with your exercises and ensure you’re getting the most out of each workout. Sessions are all 60-minutes and clients are encouraged to arrive at the gym early to start their customized warm-up.

All clients must start with a 1-on-1 assessment prior to being booked with others.

The assessment includes:

  • discussion on current and past health status
  • discussion on current and past injuries
  • movement assessment to expose dysfunctions and imbalances
  • exercise technique coaching
  • nutritional strategies to best suit your goals


1-on-1 coaching (includes initial assessment) = $75/session + HST (13%)

1-on-2 coaching = $50/person/session + HST (13%)

1-on-3 coaching = $40/person/session + HST (13%)

Unfortunately, gym memberships are not available at this time.

Acceptable payment methods include cash, check, email transfer, Visa and Master Card.
