About Doug

I specifically look for the most effective, efficient and exciting program for every client. Depending on his/her background, goals and safety concerns, any hybrid of these smart personal training protocols can be implemented: Core Training Stabilization/Balance Training; Post-Rehabilitation; Hypertrophy-Specific; Neuromuscular Flexibility; Absolute and Relative Strength Training; Pre/post-Natal Fitness, and/or Sports-Specific Training. Voted one of the best personal trainers in NYC, I am committed to making sure each and every one of my client attains his or her goals smartly and safely.

Over the past 20 years, as a NYC-based personal trainer, I have earned the widespread national attention of fellow fitness professionals and clients. I am a frequent lecturer on the subjects of functional anatomy, core training, injury prevention and motivation. In 1995 I earned a Bachelor of Science summa cum laude with an emphasis in exercise science and creative problem solving from SUNY Buffalo.

Who I Especially Like Working With


I have worked with many trainers in the past but have never encountered one such as Doug. He is smart and very knowledgeable about nutrition and anatomy. I lost weight and got stronger. I recommend him wholeheartedly.
