My Education
I have a bachelors in biomedical engineering from Johns Hopkins and a Juris Doctorate from Rutgers. I choose 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.
Training Methodology
My formula for training clients is simple. I’ll measure your strengths and weaknesses and design a custom-program around your individuals abilities and goals. Challenging “special-case” clients are my specialty.
Better Movement
I have 4 Mobility Certifications, and I’m actively working on my fifth (MWOD Certified Specialist).  Whether your goal is strength, weight loss, or better balance, it all starts with proper exercise mechanics.  Train Better, Move Better, Get Strong

Want to know what I’m reading? Check out my latest fitness book reviews here.

Knowledge is power… but in fitness… knowledge is safety.

 

One of the first questions I ask coaches who apply to work for me is, What are the 3 best fitness books you’ve read this year? You’d be shocked to hear how many tell me Youtube is all I need.

To that coach I say this, you have a duty to gain the knowledge to keep them safe, a responsibility to make sure your programming is optimal for their goals, and a obligation to constantly improve your craft. I’m sorry if that offends you, but youtube and bodybuilding.com just don’t cut it.
