My coaching style is all about customizing the personal training session to your goals, fitness level, and biomechanics.

I scale personal training sessions through progressions and regressions so that they are safe and effective for you.  Yes, I’m a big fitness nerd with my fancy graphs and conjugate periodization programs. I like working out to 80s music by artists like Jefferson Starship and Jim Josef. I own that. But make no mistake, you will be drenched in sweat, and you’ll feel sore in muscles you never knew you had. You are only as strong as your weakest links… so train the smart way… with better mobility and stronger biomechanics. Let’s create a foundation for real strength training. Yes it’s going to be hard, but it will be scaled to you safely. And in the end … I’m going to get you in the best shape of your life.

Better Movement
I have 8 Mobility Certifications.  Mobility is all about retraining your muscles and connective tissue to move better. It enhances all aspects of fitness because when you move better you train better.  My training sessions focus on providing athletes with exercises that they have sufficient range of motion and control to execute safely. Through integrating mobility into all personal training sessions, we reduce injury rates and help clients break through strength plateaus.

Personal Training Methodology

Whether your goals are based in performance, bodybuilding, weight loss, or rehabilitation, improvement begins and ends with proper mobility and exercise mechanics.

Current Areas of Study
Books and Materials that I currently reviewing and studying
  1. Partner Based Yoga
  2. NCSA Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach (CSCS)
  3. Power Lifting
My Experience
I have conducted over 10,000 hours of personal training with over 600 clients. I work with clients who have had massive surgeries (hip replacements, shoulder reconstruction, car accidents, rifle damage, etc.) to active military and police.  I specialize in weight loss, strength training, and correcting movement mechanics (kinesiology.)
My Education
I have a bachelors in biomedical engineering from Johns Hopkins and a Juris Doctorate from Rutgers. I chose to be a personal trainer so that I can help people move better and improve the quality of their life. Whether it’s unlocking confidence they didn’t know they had, or changing the way they look at fitness, personal training is my opportunity to help others.
Mobility Methodology
In addition to using the principles and teaching of M|WOD, I also integrate Muscle Activation Techniques and Muscle Energy Techniques to strengthen weakened muscles.  For range of motion testing, I utilize Gray Cook’s FMS, 3DMAPS, M|WOD foundational patterns.  For partner stretching, I utilize Astanga Yoga Asanas and Kit Laughlin’s Partner Stretching Methodology.
