What is your typical process for working with a new student?

For a brand new client we will first have an "intro" session where we get to know each other, learn about your goals, likes, dislikes, injuries, etc.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been training clients in fitness and martial art for over 20 years. I am a 2nd degree Black belt in Krav Maga, studies and obtain many many certificaitons in fitness and nutrition, owned one of the biggest private gym in the San Fernando Valley for 8 years, and currently teach at Krav Maga WorldWide in Sherman Oaks which is the biggest Krav Maga organization in the world.
