Training Philosophy

As a personal trainer it is my responsible to help people reach the goals that they desire both mentally, physically and spiritually. It is these three elements that produce any and all goals! So first together we must work on a positive of state of mind (I Can, I Will) from this derives the spirit (I AM) from this drives the manifestation of the goal (changing of the body)! I do not believe in weaknesses for they are nothing more than the manifestation of the goal in hibernation!
