By utilizing a comprehensive consultation procedure to ascertain your health history and fitness goals, I can readily design a customized personal training program just for you. My training style emphasizes proper movement form and efficient technique accompanied by constructive, immediate feedback. Learning how to let your muscles control the weight and not the other way around is of the utmost importance during the performance of resistance training. Your personal training program will consist of concise individualized instruction, attentive supervision, appropriate assistance, motivational support, and positive reinforcement. A good quality workout session should consist of exercises which are: FUNEFFECTIVE (e.g.. targeted muscle is felt during the exercise) After a comprehensive initial assessment of your health history, medications taken, aerobic capacity, posture, and strength as well as a discussion of your training goals, I will prepare your structured personal training program designed to meet your specific needs such as lose body weight, increase strength or gain muscle mass. I will periodically reassess your health and fitness growth to ensure you remain accountable and continually progress toward achieving your short-term as well as long-term fitness goal. Most importantly, I will provide personal training services at a convenient time and place of your choosing. I believe striving to continually increase the amount of weight in each and every workout is paramount to achieving more strength and muscle mass. As a bodybuilder, I feel it is essential to perform each exercise with good form in order to feel the targeted muscle being contracted and under tension throughout the entirety of each set. Hard work, discipline and dedication is absolutely necessary in order to accomplish fitness goals.
My favorite exercise
The incline dumbbell press because I feel this movement hits my upper chest the best.
My favorite quote
"Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.". ---Ralph Waldo Emerson
