Personal Trainer Overview

Hi my name is Ritz, certified personal trainer, pilates instructor, and nutritionist. I provide the customized service called the 8weeks intensive program, which help my clients to get "skinny muscular body" by using 4 different phases of diet and exercise routines. Because of my strong background of molecular biology, I can fix their metabolism and accelerate the fat loss without their knowing it. I also provide weekly exercise programs at studio or at client's place.

Training Philosophy

Lean bodies are attained by proper nutrition and resistance training. Work out intelligently and elegantly.

I love my occupation so much that I wake up every morning with full of excitement. I am not like conventional macho personal trainers. I'm very small (5'5" 102lb), very particular about physique and proportion. I run full marathons, surf during summer, do some ballet workout for my own training. If not workout, I love fashion and interior design. Simple, modern and high quality runs in my family. Native Japanese from Tokyo. Fluent in English, Japanese, and French.
