About John

I started Full Spectrum Fitness to help improve the quality of care and attention needed that my work as a physical therapist and trainer over the past 17 years in the traditional setting I was unable to provide. So many people I have seen for therapy and personal training are given substandard care due to constraints by insurance , lack of continuity of care in the name of profits, and cookie cutter exercise programming. My goal is not only to improve the health and performance of my clients but to give them the tools needed to prevent reinjury allowing them to have resiliency and agency over their health. The journey from function to fitness to performance is not always linear as I have discovered over the years recovering from acute and recurring injuries associated with participating in collegiate level sports and testing my limits in the ultra endurance community and weight room. Full Spectrum Fitness is just that, a place where I have seen 1st time trainees to those with decades of experience. I have had the opportunity to help 99 year olds 10 year olds improve their quality of life, discover the fitness activity they enjoy and have the tools to make it a sustainable lifestyle.
