    Rob C.

    Extremely intelligent, knowledgeable, funny, and extremely motivating. Got me to understand how and why we did everything we did. Got in the best shape of my for my wedding, aesthetically, AND athletically. Ended up joining a weekend soccer league because of the confidence I got working with me. I HIGHLY recommend him.

    Frequently asked questions

    I offer up to 2 complimentary sessions. 

    First is an introduction to the gym and other relevant staff.  New are asked questions in a Par-Q for fitness history and specify fitness goals and reasons why. Then a body composition and a possible fitness assessment are done to get data on the student's current fitness level.  

    The second session is a beginner workout designed for that individual based on data from the first session.  Also serves to give coach as well as student an idea of each other's communication styles, and abilities.

    As an avid participator and fitness enthusiast, I sort of fell into training. After a long time childhood friend from martial arts wanted to lose weight and get in shape,  he would work out with me for some months. 

    Years later he got a job as a personal trainer at a Bally Total Fitness at the time and quickly promoted to PT manager. The gym was hiring trainers and he immediately contacted me, citing, "you taught me everything I know about working out", as his reason for why I'd make a great trainer.  

    I've trained people as young as 12 to 89 years old. From complete beginners to experienced athletes. Working for over 15 years as a trainer at Ballys and Equinox and Titan Fitness Studios, I've worked with people from many walks of life, occupations, experiences, and goals. I have experience with people with unique injuries or conditions including multiple sclerosis and early-stage Parkinson and late-stage pregnancies. I've even trained a few professional athletes and actors.
