    I have been on many sides of the fitness equation.  Fit, fat, fad diet, crash diet, starvation, you name it, I've done it.  I don't want people to go through that.
    I simply want to help people learn the nutrition / recovery / exercise cycle and over time, learn how to take over their own fitness journey.  I believe I can help in several ways, either through on the spot / in-home training or through remote/online nutrition coaching with remote programming.  There is a path for anyone looking to be more active and lead a healthier lifestyle.

     If you are not in the San Antonio area and you'd like someone to simply to do consult work--I'd love to help.  It can be as close to a "non-partial" member as you can get.  It's a minimal fee, and our weekly calls can help you sort through the fads and gimmicks.  We can pair an activity and nutrition regimen that fit where you are at right now and take you where you want to go.  Things move faster that way.  
    Watching people do things that they never thought they could do is a thrill.  I love my job. 

      Free advice-anyone telling you that you can have "six pack abs" while eating anything you want as long as you take "this" supplement and strictly follow "this plan," is lying to you.  They are playing on your fear of mission out on the "next new thing." 

      There are smarter and more efficient ways to do it and all of it involves moving more, eating better quality food and getting enough sleep.  But we do it with a plan....make it "doable."  We get better over time.  My ultimate goal is that after about 8-12 months, you don't need me.

How did you get started teaching?

I've been working with people for the last 25 years.  Fitness was something I've always enjoyed, but it wasn't until I we had kids and the 9-5 office grind got to me (in the form of about 40 extra poings) that I decided to get serious about it.

     I got fit.....the hard way.  But when I did so, I ended up taking over the fitness programs in my military units and I did that as an additional duty the rest of my career.  This was just a natural progression for me when I retired.


What types of students have you worked with?

    My typical clients are busy professionals who don't have time to drive home, change, drive to the gym, work out, drive home, shower, make dinner and actually spend time with their families somewhere in there.....and have any idea how to plan meals.  

    I also have had several rehab clients.  I enjoy that work very much.  I've worked with seniors after strokes, heart attacks and other events.  It's challenging, but helping people get some of their independence back is rewarding.

    So far, I only have one young person.  He's working to be a professional golfer and it's amazing how much energy and power young people have.  I do miss coaching little league teams.  I am very open to being a trainer for an organized sports team.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

     Anything competitive.  I am not so much concerned with winning as I am the experience of putting everything out there.  I compete in Duality almost every year and I will be there this year as well.  It's usually in September at the Shriner Center in San Antonio.


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

      Simply put--anyone telling you anything that is too good to be true is playing on your fears and insecurities about fitness and self image.  

       There are a million ways to be fit.  Fit is a word, feeling, image that you get to describe for yourself.  If a trainer isn't listening to what you want, they most likely are pushing products or only have one modality in mind.  Ex:  "I'm a body builder and I only train people how to do that."  

         That's no fun.  I certainly know not everyone wants to be a crossfitter and that's wonderful.  It allows me to tailor programming to suite their goals.

         


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

Honestly.......if you are looking for a major change--are you willing to change anything?  I run into a lot of people who want to look better and feel better but won't part ways with any of the foods they know are too high in calories and are not willing to work.

      First and foremost- know what you want and know what you are willing to do to get it.  Life matters.  If you are working 55 hours a week, how much time do you have for this?  Are you willing to let your 3 hour a night netflix habit go to maybe 2 nights a week?  If you are looking for change, be prepared when it comes.
     
        I can help.  I love to help, but I can't do it for you.  There are steps you have to take.  I'm here to make sure you are not wasting your time.
