About The Director
Jeff Hazard began his passion for fitness at an early age. From the time he was a young athlete he played tennis, baseball, and soccer, always loving the competition. During his junior year at Wilkes University, he started weight training at a gym owned by former Mr. New Jersey, Mike Duffy. Here the passion for training was born. After graduating from college Jeff set out on a career in Information Technology Sales as it was the "hot field" for young people to be successful. All the while he continued his love of fitness with mountain biking, Tae Kwon Do, biathlons, anything that was challenging. The satisfaction of "Hey I did that" kept the passion growing. He always believed that being physically fit made him a better worker, husband, and father.
As time went by, Jeff's need for a change was becoming more and more a reality. It was solidified when his wife Wendy encouraged him to try some powerlifting to help maintain strength, and balance as he approached the age of 50. And of course, he loved it and currently holds the deadlift record for his age and weight class. Add this to coaching youth soccer and here came decision time.
First thing on the agenda was to become certified by the prestigious National Academy of Sports Medicine. Gaining the formal knowledge to deliver health, wellness, and fitness programs was critical. Add that to Jeff's desire to help people reach their fitness goals and the enjoyment received when someone says that their life has improved from being physically fit. And therein lies the mission of Elevation Fitness launched in 2018. Whether an athlete looking for that edge or someone looking to just feel better and invest in their health, our board-certified professionals can assist you.
Jeff's dream is now a reality and The Hazard Method of Speed Circuit Training is now available. We feature one on one training only and believe that formula is the key to long-term success.
