About Billy

I help people of all bodies and backgrounds build a sustainable and intuitive relationship with movement to improve their physical and mental health.Like most coaches, my career started in a health club setting. There, I was encouraged to sell a “lifestyle” that valued thinness, rewarded disordered eating, and perpetuated a system that discriminated against so many bodies. Over the years, I’ve separated myself from health clubs entirely - my practice is now independent and I’m available for remote coaching nationwide and in-person sessions in Oakland, California.Unlike most coaches, I will not guilt you for deviating from a militant exercise program, encourage you to shrink your body, or deprive your body of food. I coach under the belief that all movement, nourishment, and accountability should come from a place of self-love - not punishment or obligation. 

My favorite exercise

Hikes in the forest.

My favorite quote

"We only control what we don't trust. We can either control ourselves or love ourselves, but we can't do both." -Glennon Doyle

My training philosophy

All movement, nourishment, and accountability should come from a place of self-love - not punishment or obligation.
