About Sam

WHAT SETS ME APART: We start from scratch.

I take the time to demonstrate every movement as many times as it takes for my client to “get it.” I don’t just stand there with my arms crossed, counting to 10.

Whether you’re not sure which exercises to perform, how to perform them, what to eat to lose weight and/or gain muscle, etc. - That’s what I’m here for. After understanding your goals, your lifestyle, your dieting preferences, and more, I create a custom road-map that takes all the guess-work and uncertainty out of the equation for you.

No more “hope” needed.

If you’re tired of eating certain foods, let me know. We can find other foods to mix in. If you don’t have access to a piece of gym equipment, or you prefer to use a different exercise, let me know. We can find alternatives. I pride myself on working with my clients to make their journey’s as simple as possible. So if you’re ready to eliminate the fluff, ignore the media, and finally achieve your goals with the help of a fully customized, concrete road-map, and with. me as your trainer by your side, go ahead and reach out. I look forward to meeting you!


My favorite client story

CLIENT: Male, 180 lbs, Age 40

GOAL: Lose 30 pounds + Gain strength & flexibility

When we first started, this particular client wasn’t afraid to show his apprehension towards my training philosophy. He’s hired many trainers in the past, all similar in the fact that they emphasized heavy weights and “motivation” to push hard through their workouts.

So naturally, through the personal experience of seeing a little progress training heavy, he was a bit skeptical.

Fast forward to the end of our very first workout, enforcing perfect, deep form on squats, deadlifts, and the shoulder press, all using incredibly light weights.

My client stared at me with a gaze that looked of a unique mixture of confusion, amazement, excitement, and vulnerability.

“I’ve been lifting weights incorrectly for 10 years.”

This client had also been dealing with shoulder pain for over a decade (causing even more damage continuing to train using heavy weights with previous trainers).

After two weeks of shoulder rehab work and a few simple tweaks to his shoulder press form, he was able to increase his shoulder strength to well over 150 pounds on the machine over the course of just a few months. Not bad for originally believing he’d never surpass 70 pounds again.

Lastly, I’m happy to say that this client was able to achieve his 30 pound weight loss goal in just six months. Even better, he’s cemented everything he’s learned over his six months training with me, and he continues to maintain and progress in his overall health and fitness on his own.

Congrats, Paul!!!

My favorite quote

Big fan of quotes. Can't choose just one!

My training philosophy

It isn’t “normal” to wake up with aches and pains every morning.
It isn’t “normal” to tweak your back just picking up your dog’s toys.
It isn’t “normal” to be OK living with a weak, over-weight, inactive body.

Your body was created to be flexible, to move around effortlessly, and to be STRONG - No matter your age.


- Stretching & flexibility are crucial
- Build muscle/strength using mind-muscle connection to achieve perfect form, for every single repetition

Allow me to help you achieve peak physical fitness by demonstrating how to execute each body and exercise movement with absolute PERFECT form.

You’ll see very quickly that the use of heavy weights are absolutely unnecessary when training this way, so I ask that you leave your ego at the door.

You’ll be amazed, even confused at the amount of activation, strengthening, and stretching your body will achieve, simply using lighter resistance with PERFECT form.

The best way to see for yourself is to give it a shot. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
