About this pro

My name is Brett and my professional background involves working in sales and as a NASM certified personal trainer. Through my experiences, it has become apparent to me that every individual is unique in their goals, needs, and abilities. That is no different when it comes to the game of basketball, my true passion.

I have been doing skill work with athletes ranging from Junior High through the Collegiate level for about 3 years. My goal is to identify each athlete's strengths and weaknesses in order to put together a fully custom plan of action to enhance their skills and help them better contribute to winning basketball.


- Former All Conference & All Area HS basketball player

- Graduate of Saint John's University

- NASM Certified with specialization certifications in   Sports Performance Enhancement, Youth Fitness and Womens' Health

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

I take a very consulative approach to how I design a training program. It is very important for me to understand what your current role is, what your goals are, and identify your strengths and weaknesses. If at all possible, I try to watch the athlete play in a game as well to get a better understanding of their game in a live basketball setting.

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

I have multiple certifications through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and been doing freelance personal training/strength training for over 6 years. I have a bachelor's degree in management from Saint John's University and work full time as an account manager. Both areas heavily involve working with people and being detailed oriented.

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

My typical rate is $50 per session but I'm open to negotiation and being creative various pricing structures.  

How did you get started teaching?

Personal training at a fitness club paved the way as I was able to combine many of the teachings and experiences to my love and knowledge of basketball.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with basketball players ranging from the ages of 12-20.

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

The athletes and fitness clients that I've worked previously who have found the most success have truly been passionate in what they are working towards and have clear and defined goals. My other bit of advice is that there is no overnight path to success. Success is a process. Don't be afraid to be mistake-driven when learning something new and strive to build upon each and every session.
