My favorite client story

So a lady in her late 40s came to me overweight and with chronic pain in her neck, back and knee. So first thing we worked on was getting her moving without pain through increased strength and mobility work. We then focused on her nutrition and building her conditioning when she was physically ready and after 6 months she was pain free and had lost over 30lbs and able to dance, walk with family and play with her children again. Life changing I think you'll agree!

My favorite exercise

Turkish Get up or any type of core stability work.

My favorite quote

"Get fit for life, not just for summer."

My training philosophy

I believe in getting people moving better, feeling functionally stronger and more powerful and building their fitness through utilizing and improving the capacity all of there energy systems, this will in turn may you look good naked! It doesn't matter if you are an athlete training for a competition or a weight loss client the scientific principles are the same. It's also good to have a bit of fun and enjoy the company of your trainer too so building a good relationship as important as anything as no one wants to work with someone you is just a hard ass or much too serious all the time!
