About Brian

My focus as a personal trainer is to develop my clients' understanding and enthusiasm of proper strength training.  My approach is to help guide you on how to properly move through an exercise routine, to help you establish a solid foundation of strength, and to help you understand the "why" behind the exercises and the programming.  I primarily work with people between the ages of 25 and 55 who are looking to be better "every day athletes" - those who would like to get stronger and to get through their daily lives a little easier.


As a triathlon coach, my ideal client is anywhere between someone just starting out, up to a seasoned athlete.  I work with triathletes, swimmers, runners, cyclists, and hikers.  My specialties are in helping athletes incorporate strength training appropriately into their programming, in developing proper form and mechanics in each discipline, in building comprehensive training plans for a race or event, and in providing proper fueling strategies on event/race day.  My number one goal is to help my athletes get to their event healthy and feeling confident!

My favorite exercise

Kettlebell Swings, Deadlifts, DB Bench Press, and Wood Choppers, just to name a few

My favorite quote

"You are an IRONMAN!" - Mike Reilly, the "Voice of IRONMAN"

My training philosophy

Show up - Be Present - Learn Something - Have Fun

My training experience

I have been strength training in some form or fashion since high school. I have also played or participated in just about every sport out there (with few exceptions). My current passion is for triathlon and working with endurance athletes. I have been participating in triathlon for over 10 years now and have completed every distance, including IRONMAN.
