Hi my name is Al. I was formerly a firefighter proudly serving San Francisco. My journey to health, wellness, and fitness started a long time ago. I have always been involved with athletics. And having been a firefighter and a public safety officer for 30 years, I learned the value of keeping my body fit and avoiding injury. I have a passion to teach and instruct people on their own personal road to wellness.
I am a very strong believer in the importance of proper nutrition . That's where it all starts! My sessions are challenging, effective yet efficient. I make sure I meet every client's individual needs and goals
Let's get started!! STAY STRONG "Live Well, Eat Well!"
My favorite exercise
I like to vary my approach to my fitness toolbox. Personally, I can’t go wrong with the TRX.
It’s uses are endless.
Core, flexibility, balance, strength, and oh yeah “it will pump .....you up!”
Wished I had thought it first! Lil
My training philosophy
My clients goals are always a priority for me. With my guidance and encouragement, we will take strides in achieving those goals. I have a realistic and safe effective approach. You want to lose 30 lbs. in 3weeks for that special event? You’ve come to wrong guy. I don’t promise miracle results in a short period. Proper fitness and weight loss requires time and CONSISTENCY. This isn’t a term paper that you cram at the last minute to finish....
You want honesty and true commitment and positivity from your fitness coach... that would be what I’m all about

Al is great to work with. He is dedicated to developing core strength and keeping long term goals in mind. He came to our home gym and developed individualized workouts for my partner and myself based on our specific needs. They were fun, unique and difficult enough without risking our safety. We are both sleeping much better now because of it. I would recommend Al to anyone who really cares about doing things right.
Al is the real deal when it comes to personal training. He works with your limitations, and makes a personalized plan in helping one reach their goals. He’s effective in working in any type of setting (park) during these trying times. An absolute pleasure to work with.
Al is a wonderful trainer. His exercises will find you gradually getting stronger and within weeks able to do many times over what in the first session felt impossible. He knows that health is more a journey than an end goal, and if you are on board with that, you will find great support along the way!
