Interests and Expertise

I have been in Athletics and Exercise for more that 25years from Sports, Military (US Navy Specia Forces), Marital Arts (Aikido, Kendo, Ninjitsu), Profressional Athlete (Rugby and Worlds Strongest Man) and  Emergency Medicine to exercise research.

I am unique in the fact that my certified skills are based in trail and science. I am a firm believer that science shows that exercise and diet provide the recovery rate of any medicine crossing all pathologies.

After nearly 25 years of training, and training people, it is still my greatest delight to see people succeed in their training. I build each person's training routine according to their specific conditioning and skills based so they can reach their goals. I have never had a person not make their goal for the very simple reason that each one of us is designed to be able to exercise, and achieve a healthy and Fit lifestyle.
