Training Philosophy
I believe that fitness should enhance your life, not consume it. My job is to give you the tools, knowledge, accountability, and confidence to implement changes that fit within your lifestyle and allow you to reach your health and fitness goals.

Typical Training Session

Sessions with me are enjoyable, challenging, educational, and you’ll probably be a little sore the next day 🙂 Your program is completely tailored to your needs and goals, taking into account any restrictions or limitations you may have. I meet you where you are. Plus, your first session is on me, so you truly have nothing to lose except the weight!

Client success story

When Dave started training with me, he was 315 pounds. His knees were bad, his arches were flat, and he couldn’t run at all due to his weight and the pain it caused.

At this time, Dave smoked a pack of cigarettes a day. He drank often, and admittedly often drank too much. He was also, as he describes it, addicted to fast food.

Over the course of a 12-month period, Dave was able to break many of the negative habits that were holding him back and affecting his health.

He quit drinking. He quit smoking. He gave up fast food. And to date, he has ran 7 Marathon’s, a 1/2 Ironman, and a multitude of other races around the world.

Dave says:

“Had it not been for me finding you, I am 100% sure that I would still be 315 pounds right now. Or actually, I’d probably be 350 pounds by now. I’ve worked with other fitness coaches and nothing happened.”

As amazing as Dave’s weight loss transformation is, what is truly incredible is that he has kept the weight off for over 5 years! You can see his marathon picture below labeled “315 lbs. to 195 lbs.”.
