My favorite client story
75 year old client came in with the most serious posture and spine issues I have ever seen. 15 degree curve of thoracic spine. Hips shifted left and his trunk shifted right. Major kyphotic condition (curvature of thoracic vertebrae). After 18 months of training he was 1 inch taller and his kyphosis shifted 30% straighter and his hip and trunk alignment did the same as well.
My favorite exercise
Kickboxing, various push ups, and seated cable rows
My favorite quote
To be able to overcome the various rigors (stressors) of life with relative ease and with room to spare:
My training philosophy
Keep it simple, stay consistent, and learn how to eat and supplement ike a champion and you will see results come relatively easily:)
My training experience
Started serious sports training at the age of 10! Soccer was my main sport with tennis and basketball trailing behind. Then I realized I knew how to throw a punch and a kick from all the 30 years of playing soccer so martial arts came into the picture in the early 90's. I started training clientele while I was still in college at the young age of 20 and now 31 years later I am still at it. After becoming an N.D. or Doctor of Natural Medicine my nutritional protocols can be easy or extensive depending upon my clients needs, but it always works when implemented with clarity and consistency.
