I have a long history of physical fitness training. I am a first degree black belt in Budoshin Ju-jitsu, I've been an amateur MMA fighter, I've ran numerous OCR races, and I'm a former Marine and former police officer.
Want to improve your conditioning for sports? Train for a mud run? Train for boot camp? Train for police or fire academy? No matter your goal, I have the solution and the experience to get you there.
I enjoy guiding individuals to their fitness goals. Showing them that their "impossible" is not out of reach. Watching my clients learn and grow into strong, confident versions of their former self.
Although I have been through many different workout programs, this one has been the most diverse. My instructor has been really great and patient and teaching me the correct techniques used for each process. I can see the great possibilities in that there are lots of places for personal goals. Every day is something new and that’s what I like about it. I’m already seeing results in meeting in surpassing my personal goals.
Mason was very open to hearing my goals, and has been helping me achieve them in addition to regular workouts and conditioning. If there is something I want to work on, he finds a way to make it fit with the current workout cycle without conflicting any other training aspect. He is extremely encouraging and motivating during workouts which helps me get to my goals quicker. Mason cares about his clients, their goals, and how to realistically get them there.
I have to get to know the individual. I'm going to have a different training style for someone that was in the military than someone with no fitness background, for example.
I also want to know about lifestyle, occupation, and what your goals are.

Personal training rate is $15/hour. I have numerous other price packages depending on your situation/training needs.
It first started when I was in high school. I was the highest ranking student in my martial arts facility so I would teach classes for my instructor when he was unable to make it to class.
I then became a state certified fitness instructor for police personnel and trained my coworkers.
I also led CrossFit classes at a gym in north Scottsdale for over a year.
I now train clients in my own facility in downtown Gilbert.
I had a new client set a New Years Resolution to deadlift and squat 100 pounds. In the first week of the year, she squatted 95 pounds and deadlifted 125 pounds.
Your instructor's history and qualifications are important, but so is their personality. You have to find someone that has the right personality.
Also find someone that 'walks the walk.' A trainer can have a PhD in Exercise Science and all the certifications in the world; but can that person do pull-ups, lift their bodyweight, run around the block? Make sure your trainer can back up their training methodology.
Are you willing to be uncomfortable? Are you willing to push yourself beyond that discomfort? Are you willing to change your lifestyle? What is your true motivation?
