Personal Trainer Overview

I fix broken athletes. As an elite swimmer and triathlete, endurance coach, strength coach, personal trainer, rehabilitation specialist, with many years of experience, I can fix what ails you, make you a champion or get you into that beach body you've always wanted.

Training Philosophy

Functional Training does NOT mean standing on wobbly BOSUs or balls. It's about utilizing your body to perform tasks efficiently and thus to strengthen the muscles you need. Diet and exercise are interdependent, and proper movement and posture are the only way to prevent injuries. But if you manage to injure yourself, call me before you call the surgeon, unless you really want surgery.
