"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will."
Jeffery Savage is a native of North Carolina but moved to Maryland in 2010 to pursue a different purpose.
As a natural athlete growing up, he participated in both track & field and football. Jeff instinctively helped his teammates with their physical training and mental preparation.
Before coming to Maryland, Jeff served as a firefighter/EMT and then transitioned to corrections, and frequently uses experiences from those disciplines in his personal training.
Jeff realized that he wanted different stimulation and autonomy and made the decision to leave corrections. He decided to try something new - physical training. He always loved physical fitness and helping people reach their goals so this seemed like a great fit.
Jeff found that life coaching within personal training became second nature and Savage Fitness LLC was born.

Who we are:
The mind is the expression of the soul as it comprehends and becomes aware of its environment and responds to its stimuli. The mind is a set of cognitive faculties including consciousness, perception, thinking, judgement, language and memory. It is usually defined as the faculty of an entity's thoughts and consciousness. Our physical health is partly determined by our mental health. It has been proven that mental health issues can manifest themselves in the body, making us sick. In fact, harboring emotions such as fear, anger, hatred and jealousy can be visible in the body as high blood pressure, headaches, and stressed or tense body tissue. The body undergoes a great deal of activity as a result of what is occurring in consciousness and thought and that activity is more important than you can imagine. In short, a negative mindset can be detrimental to your health, relationships and overall quality of life. Everyone knows that exercise is good for the body, but exercise has also been proven to be good for a person's mental health.
The physical structure of a person or an animal, including the bones, flesh, and organs is the simplest definition of the body. Your body will manifest whatever is going on in the brain/mind. Maintaining physical health and well-being of your body will significantly improve not only your quality of life but will also extend your life with greater youthful benefits. The ability to combat sickness, terminal disease, and stress, are a few advantages of physical fitness. Remaining active is proven to make you happier, improve attention deficit issues, control weight, increase muscle tone, promote healthier skin, improve bone density, avoid heart attacks and stroke, and improve brain health, depression conditions, and disabetes.
The non-physical part of a person considered the seat of emotion and character of the soul. It can define a person, nation, or group. So how does the spirit benefit from regular exercise? It aids in allowing one to be more expressive, helping cleanse from the mind and body of stress, and strenghtening your awareness of your environment. It is not connected to any particular belief system. The maintenance of a stable mind-body connection is proven to help in healing the soul. Fans of the law of attraction and other manifesting techniques understand that unless the energy of your mind, body, and soul are fully aligned with your purpose, you can affirm all you want, but what you magnetize energetically will win every time. Tapping into the spiritual side of exercise allows you to slow your mind and free yourself of distraction. By being in the now and detaching from the clutter in your mind, you not only reclaim your mind but you enter into a form of meditation.
Our Best Client!
Life-Changing. Motivating. Role Model
"These are three terms which come to my mind immediately when I think about Jeffery Savage of Savage Fitness. I started my journey with Jeff four and one-half years ago. I was 52 years old and weighed 265 pounds. I had little to no self-confidence regarding my appearance or health. I was always trying this diet or that diet and making promises to myself which I didn’t keep. Sick and tired of living that way, I enlisted Jeff as a personal trainer and immediately, my life began to change. Not only does Jeff know the science behind helping others get in shape, but more importantly, he is gifted in his ability to motivate, to connect, and to teach. He makes each training session an adventure and pushes his clients to levels which continuously challenge and amaze! Jeff’s favorite saying early on in our relationship was, “If you are moving, I am happy.” And at some points early on, that was the best I could do- move. Four years later, I have lost just about 130 pounds and now run, lift weights, use battle-ropes, and most importantly, I am proud of that person I see in the mirror every day.
As a teacher, I have become a role model to my third graders with my fitness journey. Fellow teachers and parents have become clients of Jeff because of my success. I have not missed a day of working out in several years because of the skills and confidence which I gained from my training with Jeff. If you would have told me four years ago that I would be a gym rat, I would have thought you were crazy, but that is exactly who I am today. There is no doubt about it - if you train with Jeff, you are going to work harder than you ever have in your life, but along the way, you are going to laugh, cry, be amazed, and be grateful to him for showing you exactly who you can be and what you are capable of. And Jeff doesn’t just talk the talk, he walks the walk. He can be found working out at all hours of the day and night. He also provides nutritional counseling and motivation via social media posts, texts, and one on one conversations. He is available to his clients 24/7. There is NO other trainer in the world like Jeff. He often says that you should be known for what you love. He definitely is.
I have absolutely no doubt that I would not be where I am today without him. And I am FAR from finished. My journey with Jeff will continue for life. Join us- you will NOT be sorry!"
