We are proud to spotlight fellow Buffalonian Jared Callahan – founder of City of Light Fitness.
Callahan traveled around the country, only to come back and start this small business that has an emphasis on fitness and the recreational use of the Buffalo waterfront and Canalside. He even helped introduce Buffalo Paddle Fest, Buffalo’s first Stand Up Paddleboard, Kayak, and Canoe Race event – the first event of its kind in Western New York, which occurred back in July 2015.
With all the development of the waterfront area (Outer Harbor, Buffalo River, and Canalside), he has to begin to utilize the resources Buffalo has to offer. With a background in marine biology and after spending many years surfing on the coasts of North Carolina, Callahan has a unique love and respect for the water and the Buffalo waterfront as a whole.
While Jared offers traditional personal training sessions with an emphasis on high intensity workouts – kettle-bell training and Olympic lifting – he uses Stand Up Paddling as a great workout to develop total body strength.
