For Jared, to train for perfection means to set a goal in his mind and strive towards it with dedication until he achieves excellence.
In the past 1.5 years, he has seen tremendous progress as he continues to set loftier goals for himself. From starting out at 85 kg with low fitness levels to his current strength as a Coach, Jared truly demonstrates his mettle.
“To me, training for perfection means to train with a purpose, with a goal in mind. The pursuit of perfection in one’s craft”
However, weight loss was never Jared’s main goal. Jared has always wanted to fight and compete in boxing. Keeping his eyes on the prize, he never failed to keep going even when training was tough for him. After all, Jared believes that training for perfection does not mean achieving perfection in your movements. It’s about the act of striving towards that version of yourself.
“I wanted to fight and compete. Losing weight is just an added benefit”
As a coach at The Ring, Jared feels that his mission is to influence people’s lives positively by helping them achieve better physical and mental health. Training provides a great platform for every individual to go beyond their current capabilities and to reach greater heights.
“Being a coach means affecting people’s lives in a positive way – whether it’s physical fitness or emotional and mental health”
By encouraging them and training them in the appropriate techniques, Jared hopes that each boxer will catch the same fire to #TRainforPerfection, and see themselves transformed as a result.
