Our Staff

jeremy_headshot1Jeremy Biernat (Founder/Owner), CSCS, CPT

Jeremy is the founder of Tall Trainer Fitness Systems and has been training in Canandaigua since 2006. Jeremy grew up in Canandaigua but went to Texas for college and worked at a hospital based fitness center during and after college before moving back

to Canandaigua. Jeremy has done almost every type of exercise there is. From Pilates and Yoga to strength training for sports, mixed martial arts, and even training seniors. His favorite group to work with is 35-65 year olds that have been neglecting themselves. He also enjoys working with youth and helping them have the knowledge he had to spend years searching for. Jeremy does the morning training and oversees all client programs and studio activities. Like everyone at tall trainer he likes to learn constantly and then share it with others. Since the most common reasons for people to give up on exercising is: Injury, Lack of results, and Boring workouts, Jeremy’s goals for all clients is that their workouts be SAFE, get RESULTS, and be FUN!

Sarah Biernat (owner/amazing!) RN, CPT
(notice the last name! Jeremy and Sarah are Married! ;o)

On top of obviously being a personal trainer, Sarah is an RN and has had years of experience in a hospital ER and brings a great deal of expertise to the serious and minor health issues we all face. She actually graduated with a BS in Exercise and Wellness before going into nursing so she is THE most decorated and qualified trainer we have. She is the best we have in regards to eating healthy while still enjoying tasty food. She is a quieter member of the team (cetainly compared to that loud mouth Jeremy) and the volume of work she does goes largely unnoticed by our clients.  Sarah’s quiet understanding and encouragement is very welcoming for first time exercisers.

If you want to get a hold of Sarah call (800)380-7047 x 1 and leave her a message or email Sarah@talltrainer.com

Lead Evening Trainer

Andrew has the horrible luck to be Jeremy’s younger brother.  (see above picture).  I added the other picture to show you he has grown up (we both have, at least in height).  Andrew looks awesome in sun glasses.  AND….  Has been into exercise personally for years.  Upon graduation he worked for Pepsi Co. and really struggled because he saw the damage being done to consumers of those products.  He wanted to have a better/healthier impact on people and decided to turn a fitness hobby into a full time obsession.  He has a great natural ability with people and great passion for helping them succeed.  Andrew is one of our busiest trainers and has a reputation for great results and genuine caring.  (not that the rest of us don’t care, he is just extra good at showing it!)

To contact Andrew email andew@talltrainer.com

Lynn has been with tall trainer for decades as a client (ok not decades) but she’s been involved with tall trainer from nearly the very beginning. She has worked in gyms, physical therapy practices, and home health care. Her experiences are a huge asset to our program. Lynn has lost 80 pounds from her heaviest and 35 pounds at tall trainer and has stayed away from that weight for years! Her personal experience is motivational!

Personal Trainer

The newest member of our team packs a ton of energy. She may have the strongest smile you will ever see! A queen of encouragement and an eye for technique, she is a great asset when she helps out in the classes. A farm girl who knows hard work and also a hair dresser (she cuts my hair!). She also has picked up some of our behind the scenes duties helping us keep up with clients and several random tasks that overflow from other team members. She has a great husband and two kids.
