I incorporate cognitive processing and reactionary based movements with a good portion of the exercises. I always want my clients thinking and moving at the same time. This is how we function in reality so we should also train the same way. This also keeps the client more engaged on the task and unaware of how hard they are working. 

I love seeing clients being able to do something they previously could not do. Whether they are able to get out and play with the kids more or do five more push-ups than they did the previous week, I love seeing the progression.

Q & A

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

I like to learn what my clients interests are. I believe any interest can be incorporated into an exercise routine to make it more interesting. I try to personalize the routine as much as possible to the individuals lifestyle, much like a well fitted suit.

In most circumstances I will do a baseline assessment so that we can track our progress over time. This will allow me to start a new client off at the most comfortable pace possible.


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

I've worked in the fitness/health industry for 14 years. I have a bachelors degree in kinesiology from the University of Maryland. I am a certified clinical exercise physiologist under ACSM. 

I also have a background in mixed martial arts and have incorporated this into lessons if there is an interest.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

The pricing varies contingent on the type of training and the distance I would be required to travel.  


How did you get started teaching?

I love being a part of the story of my clients. Over the years I've come up with a wide spectrum of creative techniques that I love to share with my clients. I want to help as many people as possible reach their full potential. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with professional athletes and olympians, improving their athletic abilities.

The population age range that I've worked with has spanned from 3 years of age to 90 years of age.

I also have extensive experience working with individuals with various neuromuscular disorders and special needs.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Prison Break releasing a season 5 on Fox after 8 years. I loved that show. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I always tell people if you get a trainer ask three questions:

1) Do you have a four year degree in the field?

2) What certification do you have?

3) What does your experience look like? 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think about what your goals are and try to make them as specific as possible.
