About this pro

I am a fitness trainer, physical therpay aide, and Orthopedic & Correctice Exercise Specialist.  I have been an athlete since high school and have been training since 1990.

I have worked with every level of client from competitive athletes to a 77 year old with one hip and two shoulder replacements.  I also have extensive personal experience recovering from many different serious injuries (mostly from skiing; used to live in Vail, CO); I can truly empathize with anyone who has pain and/or limited mobility.

I also have a large network of the best health professionals in my arsenal: Nutritionists, Sports Massage Therapists, Physical Therapists, Orthopedic Surgeons, etc... to refer my clients to for maximizing comprehensive health and fitness potential.  If I can help someone then I am confident I can help find them the correct professional for their needs.

I enjoy training and entertaining simultaneously.  Fitness needs to be challenging and fun.  If it is not having a 'challengingly good time' then it is not truly a healthy path.  Yes, effort is necessary; however, if you are not a professional athlete then there is no need to stress yourself into misery about exercising, diet or your performance. Results will come with time and focus.  Pushing too hard too often only leads to failure over the long haul.  There is no finish line... learn to enjoy the process.

Observing my clients as they discover new levels of ability (many thought were not possible) and helping them 'learn to enjoy' their endeavors is my reward.

    Jeff is totally unlike any other trainer I have worked with before. I told him on day one that I don't care about how I look. What I want is to stop getting injured and stop being limited in the activities and sports I can do. I came to him with 2 knees that acted up frequently and a left shoulder that was unable to bear weight. Jeff doesn't do any of the cliche trainer stuff like yelling at you and trying to make you do more reps or kill yourself. Don't get me wrong, you'll get a great workout but he is completely focused on teaching me how to use my body properly in order to get better use and longevity out of it. Everything we do is about constant correction. Frankly I'm amazed at how little I knew about how the body works and how to properly use various muscles. Jeff is an encyclopedia of anatomical and physiological knowledge. After 6 months I am back to playing tennis without fear, hiking and biking all I want, and my shoulder is near 100%. He isn't cheap, but I don't want a cheap trainer. I can't think of a better way to spend my money than to invest in my health, so I can play tennis when I'm 70 or say yes when someone says, "let's go hike the Grand Canyon next weekend." Thanks, Jeff!

    Jeff will get you in shape at any cost... sure sometimes you want to choke him but the end result will change your mind... Jeff is super knowledgeable in human anatomy and great motivator...
