About me: Began working at the University Health Club on Valentine's Day in 2012. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Oklahoma State University in 2007. I have always been an active and competitive person. In high school and college I participated in sports. Now I like to run and play outside. I have been a personal trainer since 2009 and love teaching people what I know about health and fitness. My degree in Psychology has helped me relate with clients and understand that it’s not always just about weight loss. I enjoy pushing people to limits they never knew they had. I am proud of every one of my clients! I enjoy my boot camp class because it's like being part of a team. People cheer each other on and are always supportive of one another.
Jared McArthur, Fitness Specialist
Hometown: Winder, GA
Favorite food: Seafood!
Favorite Pastimes/hobbies: Skiing, and fishing.
Hidden talents: I can throw a Frisbee with both hands.
About me: I have a sport background in flat water sprint kayaking in which I have competed in two Sprint World Championships in my 12 year paddling career. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Oklahoma City University, where I actively competed in the collegiate sprint kayak team. Coaching and personal training has been an integral part of my life in the last 4-5 years where I have gained valuable experience from coaching various watersports at Oklahoma City’s Boathouse District. Among these teams is OU Pharmacy’s very own corporate dragon boat team who are the reigning champions in the biannual Oklahoma City Corporate Dragon Boat Regatta. My objectives when working with a team or an individual are to, clearly communicate, safely train, and attain their goals. I am always energetic and driven, so you can expect my training style to reflect that.

About Me: I have been involved with fitness from the very beginning. My dad has spent a lot of time with my brother and me lifting weights and being active in general. I played soccer and ran cross country in high school (I also played the trumpet in band), and spent my first year in college playing soccer at MACU. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Health and Exercise Science from the University of Oklahoma in 2013, and will receive my Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology from OU in 2015. During my time as a graduate student, I discovered a love of instructing. I taught soccer, swimming, and rock climbing to OU undergraduate students for 2 years and loved every bit of it, and look forward to continuing my instructing here at the University Health Club. I started personal training just after I started working here in April 2015, and absolutely love it. I enjoy building relationships with people and helping them achieve any goal they might have. I always try to be friendly and positive, even when it’s raining.
