VALPARAISO | Jay Weinberg is a very busy man. He is marketing assistant, personal trainer and a fitness instructor for boot camp at the Valparaiso Family YMCA.
And he performs with The Energy Commission, a rock band.
"I wear a lot of hats," said Weinberg. "But the boot camp is very inspirational to me."
He enjoys doing the boot camp at the YMCA because it's like family to him.
"I get so much more in return seeing people progress and hearing people's stories on how their lives have changed," Weinberg said. "I always try and tie it to what you tackle in life and take things one day at a time."
Weinberg has been at the Y since 2008 and has his own style as a boot camp instructor.
"One of the things I do is I get down to business and I really try to push people," he said. "You have to work hard. I even shout out inspirational stuff while we are working out."
When Weinberg is not at the Y, he is writing songs for Energy Commission.
"We are very lyric driven and almost everything we do is original," he said. "We will be playing at the House of Blues in March."
