Personalized periodized training program for optimal adaption To get from where you are now to the body you want, you have to be SPECIFIC with your training. If you are following generic workout plans you got from friends, magazines, the internet or even some Instagrams stars trainer program, you are wasting a lot of energy and not training optimally because the training is not specific to YOU, your genetics, your schedule, your lifestyle or your goals!
Anything is possible when you have expert guidance
Your body is like a house. It can be designed to any specification you want. Some people have a head start with great genetics – But if you’ve had trouble in the past losing weight or trying to put on muscle, I’m here to tell you your ‘Dream House’ CAN BE BUILT. As a personal trainer, I’ve seen it all! Your new body is waiting for you, it just requires a more specialized approach, one with more planning, more precision, and an expert architect.
I take the approach of maintaining a total dedication to only working with the best scientifically verified techniques when devising training programs. I believe that the best science develops the most refined and efficient techniques, which in turn makes the most optimal programs, programs which deliver results.
Learning everything there is to know about how to effect change in one’s body would take years. Moreover, keeping up to date with the latest science would be near impossible for the average person. This is why I started Coach Clarence. I wanted people to know that no matter what physical condition they are currently in, there are techniques and strategies that can not only help them shed unwanted weight but to attain the body of their dreams!
I aim to change the way in which my client's workout, leaving them not just thinking and training but about their specific needs.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
By the time people get to my website, they are completely frustrated with the way they look and feel.

I understand that working in today’s stressful fast pace job market has made losing weight and getting in shape seem virtually impossible.
