I've been into fitness and wellness since I was 16 years old when I discovered the gym with my older brother. Since then I have gone on to work with hundreds of individuals from a wide range of backgrounds. I found myself really gravitate to strength training as a means of it being a corrective solution to many of the problems that individuals face on a daily basis.
An intial one-on-one session with me begins with a thorough static and movement based assessment. From there we will go through some mobilization drills and corrective soluctions before heading onto the gym floor to learn the basic movement patterns: squat, hinge, push, and pull.
Nutrition coaching follows the Precision Nutrtion protocol which places an emphasis on reformation of habits rather than only doing as I say type of meal plans that many coaches follow. I believe you should be able to indulge and enjoy life without having to make sacrifices left and right.
My favorite client story
"In July 2012 shortly after I turned 26 I stood 6' 3" and weighed 327lbs. I had a gym membership with no idea where to start or what to do. I contacted Gary and began working with him August 1st 2012. Over the course of the last 16 months I have lost 105lbs. while working with him four times a week. His knowledge and expertise are unbelievable and it's hard to believe now that I used to weigh what I used to. My life is forever changed because of him and I couldn't thank him enough for all the hours he spent helping me. I couldn't recommend him enough whether you are looking to start your own weight loss journey or become stronger."- Andrew C. Via Yelp
