Meet Our Trainers

Jaime Sutton

Getting involved in training started with Jaime's athletic career as a Junior Olympic Volleyball Club player in 1998. She then received an athletic scholarship to play at Division I Marist College in New York, and it continued intensely. In her four years at Marist, she fell in love with and learned the base of her fitness skills through regular personal athletic, cardiovascular and plyometric training.

After becoming an American Council on Exercise (ACE) certified Personal Trainer and Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) Group Exercise Instructor, Jaime worked at Philadelphia Sports Club. While there, she designed personalized fitness programs specializing in weight loss, strength training, cardiovascular improvement, sports conditioning, agility, plyometric training and more.

Over the years, Jaime continued improving her fitness skills working as head trainer for Liberty Belle Volleyball Club and designing client programs for Transformation Fitness and Life Sport Fitness.

In February 2012, she decided to offer her unique athletic experience and extensive fitness knowledge to local clients through J'aime Fitness.

Adam Tischler

Adam has 14 years of experience in the fitness field and focuses on using the correct exercise modality for each of his clients to achieve maximum results while minimizing injury risk.

After graduating from Ithaca College in 2003 with a degree in Exercise & Sports Sciences, he started his career at Equinox Fitness in NYC. After 7 months as a personal trainer, he was promoted to Fitness Manager, where he taught other trainers program design, anatomy, kinesiology, and biomechanics. While working at Equinox, Adam became a Certified Strength & Conditioning Coach (CSCS) through National Strength and Conditioning Association and a certified Kettlebell Instructor.

Once Adam became a CSCS he looked to his love of baseball for his next career move. In 2005, he was hired by the Chicago White Sox, and served as a Stength and Conditioning Coach in their minor leagues for 7 seasons. Adam is proud to have worked with over 2 dozen players who have reached the Major League level. 

In 2011, Adam moved to Nashville and went back to his original passion of helping people feel better about themselves through exercise. Then he and his wife, Dana, moved to Philadelphia at the end of 2013 when she got a job at CHOP. Adam creates programs designed specifically to his clients goals and capabilities, while managing any existing injuries. He has trained clients from age 13 to age 85 and at all skill levels from novice to professional athletes.

LIsa Pettit

Lisa's passion for fitness came long before she made it her career. At 14 years old she was one of the first three females on the Haddonfield High School Cross Country team. Today, Lisa remains a local top competitor in road races and is currently training for her 20th marathon. Physical movement of any kind makes her happy!!

Sixteen years ago, Lisa left her corporate position in Human Resources to enjoy being home with her children and pursue a fitness career as a Spin and Bootcamp instructor, and later, as an ACE certified Personal Trainer. Tailoring a full body circuit workout is her specialty to insure clients reap the benefits of combining cardio vascular with muscle toning moves. Motivating and educating clients to adopt healthful behaviors and reach fitness milestones are what inspires Lisa as a coach at J'aime Fitness.

Jimmy Sutton

Jimmy has always been passionate about fitness and athletics and believes in a holistic approach to health. His active lifestyle of basketball, running, water sports, winter sports and more reflects that passion.

Jimmy's fitness career began while playing Division I basketball at Marist College. His commitment to sports led to training and coaching basketball at numerous Division III schools, including: Keystone College, Penn State University The Behrend College and Hamilton College. While coaching, his duties included creating and overseeing the strength and conditioning programs of his teams.

Over five years ago, his wife Jaime started her own business (J'aime Fitness) with Jimmy's help. Last year, they opened their first training studio in Fairmount and decided to make it a family business. Now an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and business partner, Jimmy has enjoyed running the business and making Fairmount healthier with Jaime.

"I've been working individually with Jaime for 10 months. Although I was in very good shape when we began, I wanted to take my fitness to the next level, and working with Jaime I have certainly accomplished that. In fact, I've been able to do things that I didn't think I was capable of doing. Jaime is thoughtful and prepared, and flexible. I've been very impressed by her ability to work around various injuries that I have experienced and limitations that I have. Finally, she's a lovely person and a pleasure to work with."

Michael Lieberman | Personal Training

"Jaime is a highly skilled, professional trainer and she's very fun to work with! I've noticed marked improvement in my strength, agility, endurance and overall fitness thanks to her creative, interesting, and challenging workouts. Jaime will push you as much or as little as you want. She designs custom workouts to fit your needs, interests, and goals. I highly recommend her."

Perri S | Personal Training

"As a typical weekend warrior, I always thought it was OK to sit at my desk all week and then hop on a bike, go for a hike, play softball, etc. My muscles had a different idea. I joined a gym, many gyms in fact, but never went. Jaime changed all that. She showed me how to incorporate exercise into my daily routine, without fancy machines or gadgets. I am not ready to say I look forward to our sessions but they are filled with pleasant conversation and I continue to make the sessions part of my week so she must be doing something right. Seriously, she's the best."

Howard M Soloman, Esq | Personal Training

When I started working with Jaime, I was out of shape and knew nothing about proper nutrition and the correct way to work out. With her help I've lost 10 pounds (and am still losing) and have noticed a remarkable difference in my strength. I'm also more mindful of my diet and feel the healthiest I have in years. I hate to work out, and Jaime has done a great job of motivating me and making our workouts enjoyable."      

Leigh Sperun | Personal Training  

"I've always been an athlete but it's so easy to get stuck in a rut, doing the same activities all the time. Jaime keeps her workouts fun and different, changing things up just enough to keep you on your toes while also maintaining a familiar format so that you actually feel like you're accomplishing something and getting stronger. She's tough but not scary, and really cares about all of her clients. She makes sure you're doing it right, not just going through the motions, and she's always willing to answer questions and offer modifications, which makes her popular with clients of every age and ability."

Lauren Rumsey | Group Training 

"I attend Jaime's class twice a week to infuse intense core and weight training into my fitness routine. Jaime's workouts are the perfect combination of cardio and strength training. She uses exercises that not only target specific muscle groups, but easily scale up and down to accommodate different fitness levels. Jaime is adept at providing individual attention and instruction, even while guiding a full class of 20+ people. She's always introducing me to new exercises and provides advice on how to realistically integrate them into my workouts outside of class."
